Weekend Finds

I’ve been spending much of the weekend writing and doing organization/cleanup for my new focus to go back and fully document and “prove” each generation, but I have to admit that I couldn’t resist the urge to go on a hunt for at least one new fact.  I am quite happy to say that my thirst for the hunt paid off….I found a new 1860 census record for my great great grandfather despite the fact that the first and last name are completely butchered (as was apt to happen for brand new immigrants in the 1800s)!  In an upcoming Tuesday Tip, I will detail how I successfully found this errant record and can confirm that it is, indeed, my ancestor.

Happy Hunting!

  1. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
