Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
My mother and aunt started it briefly to help celebrate my grandparent's 50th anniversary. Years later, I found their small amount of research and decided to take it further and hopefully learn more about the family stories I had been told as a young child.
Do you have a genealogy website or blog?

In memory...

In memory and in honor of the ancestors who have gone before me - the ones who died before their time.



Infant Hulbert - son of my 4th great-grandfather. Never knew about you until I happened across your stone in the cemetery. Died at only 1 day old.



Ferona Margaret Hulbert - daughter of my 3rd great-grandfather. I have a picture of you as an infant, and you only lived to the age of 3, probably the only picture taken of you.



Florida Kerr Hulbert - 1st wife of my… Continue

Coming full circle...

I am a Buckeye.



No, that's not just a worthless nut (although my husband might agree on the "nut" part), but rather it's an understood term used for those who live in the state of Ohio. I was born there, raised there, my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had all spent the majority of their lives there. And so on, and so on, etc...you get the idea.



The only thing is that I no longer live there. As life usually happens, I got married, and we moved to the state of… Continue

What a little cutie!

Last November, I received notice that Google Images had digitized photos from LIFE magazine. Most people are probably thinking...big whoop. But in my family, this is an exciting thing.



A little history first - my mother grew up in northwest Ohio where, in September of1950, a Polio epidemic had broken out. Well, LIFE magazine was all over this story and wouldn't you know - my mother had her picture taken with two of her brothers and it was enshrined forever within the pages of the… Continue

My Favorite Ancestor

I was recently asked by another genealogy addict..."Out of all your ancestors, who would you want to be like and why?"



As soon as I heard the question, my mind was racing. No, I haven't found anyone incredibly famous along the lines of my family tree that I wish my genes were traced from. But these ancestors that I've found...oh the stories they could tell of their own lives.



There's my 9th great-grandfather, William Hulbert. I can't imagine being a young man of only… Continue

Little Jessie G. Parrish



There has always been a story told over and over again by my mother and grandmother. I doubt it was told to us as a warning regarding the dangers of playing near railroad tracks - we never lived near railroad tracks. I think perhaps it was probably one of the most devastating family events, so it was a story that was retold over and over to preserve the memory of this little boy as best as possible?



Oddly enough, before I began… Continue

Hi Candy. I am currently on vacation in beautiful and historic Lakeside, OH. I will be back at my home base in the early part of August. Should be able to post my link then. In the mean time do a Google search on Northwest Ohio blog and you should be able to find it. Sorry for the delay.

Hi Candy. One of my great g. g. g. grandmother's on my maternal side is a Hulbert, but I have no information on her family. I wanted to start a Hulbert Family group for the Hulbert surname, but wanted to make sure that my Hulbert did not descend from your family. Elizabeth Hulbert was born in 1818 and married Jeremiah Harrington. That doesn't happen to sound familiar does it?

Hi Candy,

I'm a New Yorker at heart (Binghamton). So when I get my upstate NY genealogical questions together, be ready! LOL

There were a Carnahan family members in PA - My PGMother was from Gilette PA [Jessie Dilina Ayers, b 1870]

Candy at this point I see no one that connects. My Carnahan line comes out of MO - Macon County. Sorry it seems to be no dice :)

Hi neighbor! I'm impressed with this site so far. I'm pretty sure we are related too, btw. The Hulbert's tie into my Randall line up in Nova Scotia. I'm going to have to dig back into that line again!

Thanks Candy! I haven't yet decided how I am going to post info here and on my blog. Today I decided to just be lazy and post a link ~ thanks for taking the time to read it!!!

Where in northern Michigan did you visit? It's beautiful up there this time of year. I read your story -- too bad about all those lost pictures!

Hi Candy - My Hulbert line comes down from James Hulbert of Hampshire Mass, to Seth Hulbert (Sr and Jr) in Geauga County, Ohio. I took a look at your RootsWeb page, looks like James is your beginning as well perhaps? Nice to meet a cousin, however distant. Have you seen Fred Cowin's documentation of the Hulbert line? He's done a tremendous amount of work.

Whereabouts in northern Michigan were you? I'm in Lansing.
