Getting Children or Grandchildren Interested in Genealogy

Every summer my two oldest grandchildren spend a week with us and during that time here are some of the activities we've done with them.

Understanding Patronymics

Posted on July 8, 2009 at 4:26pm 3 Comments

The Dutch were much slower than the English in adopting surnames as we know them. Patronymics in New Netherland (present day New York) ended theoretically under English rule in 1687 with the advent of surnames, but not everyone followed the new guidelines.

The most common Dutch naming custom was that of patronymics, or identification of an individual based on the father's name. For example Jan Albertszen (who later took the surname Bradt) is given the patronymic of Albertszen, after… Continue

Lorine, I found 3 letters in your Past

Voices website that I am very interested in. 2 are from Alvin Brown of the 107th ohio,and 1 from William Koch 107th ohio. I have been researching civil war veterans from my hometown, Louisville Ohio, for the last 15 years with the intention of  writing a book to preserve their contribution. I hope to talk to you in detail about these letters. Thank you, Mike Carden

Attempting to upload the photo here only results in html tags being displayed. Hopefully you can see the photo accompanying my post on Lost Faces

This is perported to be a photo of my 3RD GGF, but I suspect it may be my 2ND GGF. My photo analytical skills are negligible, so I am hoping someone with more expertise can offer opinions on:

1) Pete Fine's age in the photo
2) The decade or year when the photo was taken.
