Hello, I am searching information on surnames: Olejarz, Marianna of Galicia, Zwierczyk, Andrew (father Walenty) of Wilkowisko, Wator, Johann (father James, grandfather John, mother Cunnegundi? maternal grandfather Thomas Muskowiez) of Galicia, District of Limanova, and Budzynski, Casimir (mother Wanda, father Jan) of Warsaw, all of Poland.
I have a number of hardcover documents found after a family member's death which have aroused my interest into family's history. Among hardcover documents is 1905 copy of baptismal certificate from 1874 of Johann Wator from "Parish of Dobra". There appears to be a very good possibility that Johann Wator took identity of Andrew Zwierczyk prior to coming to US.
Any help or advise in my search would be very greatly appreciated.

Erik Rasmusen b 1773 d 1830 and Charlotte Munthe
from what I have discovered they had 3 children Bolette, Agate & Olsen he is the side I am from, I would like to find birth certificates for them all if possible and more info on where they lived and even if I have the right people. Ancestry is now charging for Danish records, so cannot do any more searching there,
Cheryl, you can do more searching if you go to your local LDS Family History Libaray, Ancestry is free there as well as other Family History sites that usually you have to pay for. you might also try familysearch.org.
I wish you luck.
Ok everyone, I have been trying to find my Granddad Charles Ralph. My Mum gave me the birthdate of July 5 1904 Wandsworth, Surrey England and for a few years now Ive been hoping that the Freebmd or another Family History Site had him but I couldn't find him, so I finally ordered a Birth Record for a Charles Ralph born 1905. t turns out that the 1 I orderd had a birthdate of 5 July 1905 Wandsworth Southfields and parents Charles Ralph and Louisa Moate.
So if anyone has information on Charles Ralph and Louisa Moate please let me know.
Hi group! I started looking into my geneology just last year. I was surprised at what I found. I never knew much about my father's side of the family. I am a direct descendent of Robert Paddock who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1632. He is my 10th great-grandfather. The Paddocks married into the Macy's, Starbucks, Folgers, and Sears families just to name a few. I am a first cousin once removed and 8x down the line of Benjamen Franklin. The Paddocks were the first whalers in the new world according to some accounts that I found. Robert Paddock was a blacksmith and other Paddocks became ship's captains. There are some great stories about my distant relatives and I've been enjoying them. I look forward to learning more from the people on this site who have been at this longer than me.
Hello! I am a 48, happily married (just celebrated 25 yrs) to Steve who is a firefighter/paramedic! We have two wonderful boys, Brendan, 16y my musician (plays bassoon) and Jacob, 12y, my Mr. Fixit man! We live near St. Louis, Missouri.
I started doing genealogy when I was pregnant with my oldest. All my life I heard the rumor that my GGG Grandfather, Charles Henry Briggs got into some horrible legal trouble and changed his name from Angell to Briggs. I love puzzles and mysteries so I set out to find the truth. Well 17 years later I am still looking. I have made "some" progress. I found Charles Henry Briggs from 1892 in New Jersey, his move to Missouri around 1902-3 and in Mo. until his death in 1913, he was always Briggs BUT I can not find him from his birth 7Oct1861ish in Massachusetts to 1892. Now taking his mothers maiden name Mary S. Dunbar, I found that she married a David Angell and had a son, David Angell on 7Oct1861 in Massachusetts. Both David and Charles were also shoe makers. I can find David Angell from his birth 1861 until 1885 when he married a Sarah J Roberts and had a daughter Muriel B. Angell (married to a Elton B Alger)but can not find him after this. I do believe David and Charles are one in the same but I can not find that smoking gun. I am hoping that someone out there can help me or is a descendant of one of my surnames and had a heard the same family rumor?!?!
I am a member of Ancestry.com and NEHGS. My research pretty much is currently in Massachusetts and RI and I visit Boston every summer (my hsbs Aunt lives there). I am very open to any suggestions or hints! I just hope to someday find this answer!
I am researching not only Briggs and Angell I am researching the following
from my Married surname Tuley: Tuley, Adam, Schone, Pudlowski
my maternal surname: Huth, Wagner, Casper,
my paternal surname: Briggs, Pfadenhauer, Finn, McCarthy
IF David Angell is related: Angell, Tillinghast, Dunbar, Hoar/Horr, Roberts
Hi, my name is Christy and I am a beginner. I've been working on ancestry.com along with my local state vital records online to find my family. I am currently working on Gray, Suter, Schwing, Suppes, Carney in WV, OH, and PA. I was very excited to find this site. I am hoping to connect with some people who can help me and vice versa. Thanks!
Ann,welcome, I had been trying for many yrs to find my Granddads Birth Cert my Mum had told me he was born 5 July 1904 but Wandsworth in London didnt have a Birth record for him that year, but 1 for 5 Jul 1905 and it was amazing what happened when I brought it. I have been able to go back on his family to 1668 and on his Mothers side way back, so I guess what Im saying is that you have 1 name so see if you can get the Birth records for them.
Also you might want to check familysearch.org
All the best
Hello. I'm fairly new to all this and don't even know if I'm in the right place. I am successfully piecing together my family tree but have hit a brick wall with my great grandad.
His name was Joseph Johnston and he was born in Northern Ireland in 1866. He married an Elizabeth Ellen Kneebone in 1891 in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, UK (nee Moon - b. 1872 Cornwall, d. 1953 Barrow-in-Furness) and this pair made my granddad Clifford Johnston (b.1912 Barrow-in-Furness) and he is my Mam's Dad.
Can anyone help with any info at all on Joseph Johnston...such as his parents..because that's all I've got??
I haven't been on for quite a while... My Line is DICKERSON, Samuel
Gena, pls contact me again, I misplaced all of golden information you shared with me...
Hello Everyone :O)
Cal gal here. A mom of two adults and grandmother of three beautiful girls. My interest is nearly as old as I am, but my true research did not begin until 2008. I was actually amazed at how much information l had stored in my own brain of our family history.
My materal grandmother, Pauline Marie Braswell, was one of ten children. Nine of them lived to adulthood. I knew all of them and their spouses and most of their children. My mother's side was easy, for I had grown up my entire life surrounded by them.
My father's side, the Samuel line, not so much. Even though my father knew me as an infant, I didn't meet him until l was 16 in 1976. It wasn't until 1994 that l was actually able to build a relationship with him and my paternal grandmother, Helen Porter.
In 2008 is when I was given family history and the journey began. It started out to just be something to give my children and grandchildren a past, but it has turned into a passion and has been rewarding beyond my wildest imagination.
I remember the day so well that my search led me to the a family named Ball. It had been years since l had studied early American History and had no idea that I was tickling with a family line of such importance. Once I confirmed that I was actually related to the family of our nations first president... I looked around as though the secert service was going to pop out! I felt so silly, but then proud. So yes, good old George's great aunt Hannah married a Meeker and down the line it goes about 12 or 13 times before it reaches the likes of me.
I have joined here to give my journey a voice. I have wanted to blog and finally realized it was genealogy that I needed to talk about. The stories, the people that I have met along my paths to the past...
