Hi all! I am a "Geneablogger" and I have started writing about different people's ancestors for Treasure Chest Thursday. First week I wrote about my ancestor Jesse Vawter, from Madison, Indiana. Today I featured Abraham Wrightsman, an Underground Railroad conductor from near Kokomo. I am looking for more ancestors to spotlight. You can check out my blog at www.goinoverhome.blogspot.com or email me directly about your ancestor: KathrynAndrewsPotter@gmail.com
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Thanks for asking John. I have the same question for Frazier/Frazer/Fraysher/etc. If anyone with this last name has tested or is interested in testing, please feel free to contact me -- Paul Frazier Gerhart at email@example.com
Our line came from Moccasin Creek, southwest VA about 1800 led by Solomon (b1773), George, Jonathan, Squire, and perhaps other Fraziers from Russell County (what is now Scott County), VA into what was then Floyd (now Letcher and Breathitt) County, KY.
Are there any Acker, Aker, Akers, or Hale's in the KY group, or does anyone know of any of these surnames that have done a Y-DNA test, so I can compare my Y-DNA results?

Denise - try this website: http://diocesanarchivists.org/?page_id=20
it is for the association of Diosean Archivists. I have given you the contact page. They should be able to help you find the right archive.
Carma-Lu Do you know how I would get in touch with them? I couldn't find anything in my online search of the Diocese that told me where the Archives were. Thanks.
Denise Damm - have you tried the Diocese Archivist society? They could probably tell you which archive the records would be held at.
I am seeking contact with my Hale cousins from the following aunts and uncles: Jessie Hale, born 1912 in Breathitt Co., Kentucky. Mattie Hale, born 1914 in Breathitt Co., Kentucky. Evelyn Hale, born 11 Jun 1919 in Breathitt Co., Kentucky. Earl Hale, born 29 Nov 1921 in Breathitt Co., Kentucky. Frances Hale, born 07 Nov 1923 in Magoffin Co., Kentucky. I'm John Hale son of John J. Hale, born 16 Jul 1927 in Martin Co., Kentucky. Thanks for any help. John Hale

I have a Schmidt family who lived in Paducah, Kentucky from the time of their marriage in 1852 until they can to California in 1874. When my great uncle did work on this family he sourced the birth information of the children as the "Catholic Records Center". Is anyone aware of this repository? I haven't been able to come up with anything close through internet searches or reference books. I would have expected the records to have been in a Diocese. Thanks.
