Hi everyone,
My name is Micki Boyer, I'm trying to get through my brick wall which is my great grandparents, Benjamin Donahue and Mate Cashell (and other variations of surname spellings.)

From my grandmother's and great uncles birth certificates, their parents were both born in Vermont. I have not found them on any census for Vermont or Michigan (where they lived in the 1890s. They left both children at an orphanage in Grand Rapids, MI, came back and visited a couple times then disappeared. I can't trace them forward or backward.

Any suggestions?

I have Blood ancestors who lived in Windsor and Vershire Vermont. Most of their relatives originated in Massachusetts. My line goes from Blood, Hosford, Hanson, Badger, to Burbank.

Hi all, Some of my ancestors lived for a very long time in Vermont, primarily in the Norwich area of Windsor County. I have been told that the family farm in Norwich is still in the hands of a distant cousin, though I have never personally met them. I am researching the Loveland and Olds families of Norwich and their associated surnames, such as Hatch, Wheatley, and Blood. Most of these families moved up to Norwich from elsewhere in New England in the late 1700s. If anyone is researching some of the same families or in the same area of the state, I'd love to talk more with you. In addition to enjoying doing genealogy of my family line, I find the Norwich area's history quite interesting.

I'm working on a huge brick wall, Horace Benjamin Whiting, born in 1831, in Vermont. Trying to locate parents. No birth records available, but some possible family in Hartland. Anyone know any church records available in this area of the state? Thanks!

I have been doing research off-and-on for 10 years and this past week I started on my grandmother's side of the family. It has not been too difficult to find surnames but I need to connect a couple of people in Vermont/MA. I am searching for history, etc. on Cassius Cooley
