If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
Well, specialties, hmmm....well, I've sort of a been a "Pro Bono" Fisherman, of sorts, out here on the Internet Ocean since I first started doing my research. When I began my research about 25 years ago, I was so very fortunate to have a plethora of people that helped me, so very kindly, along the way as I struggled to tear apart some very obscured genealogy so I, continually, work to 'Pay It Forward.'
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
There has always been a great 'spiritual' yearning in me to know from whence I come and from whom. I've always felt the presence of my ancestors coursing through my veins and I really wanted to know more about them. When I'm researching, I truly feel them reaching out to me from beyond and guiding me to finding out about them. It's been so thrilling to get to know them throughout history.
Hi! :) Saw your post on rootsweb about your ancestry leading back to Michael McCarty of Cork Co. Ireland. I am researching a line that believes itself to be descended from this Michael McCarty. I am related to a William Thompson McCarty born in 1821. I have not found their evidence/reason for believing they descend from Michael McCarty. You may be related to this line, so I wanted to ask you, where your family got the information/proof that your ancestor was Michael McCarty of County Cork, Ireland. It would be very helpful to my search and I would appreciate it very much. Thank you, Mrs. A.F. Fitch
I have been trying for the longest time to find out how Jesse W. Myrick died in 1943 he is buried in Athena Oregon..it says Hermiston is where he lived .His wife Bessie died also not to many years after..thank you...
Hey ya'll...lived in Euless, TX for about 20 year so seeing your web page made me kind of 'homesick'
I'm researching my Merrick/Myrick line from ancestor Thomas Meyrick who settled in Springfield, MA in 1630s. He was 1 of 4 brothers who emigrated from St. David's, Pembrokshire, Wales. Does any of this mesh with your line?
