Welcome, Caro Nally!

Hello there!

Hi! I'm Caro and I am a Family Historian and Genealogist. I have been deeply involved in daily research for about two years now, looking up birth certificates and death notices, writing emails, making phone calls, sending letters. I am very fortunate to still have some living family members who remember a lot of the past and are willing to share some of it with me.

My current master file has 1582 people in it, containing approx 100 last names (maybe even more)! If are interested at all in what I have, please feel free to ask. If I have anything that may help you, I will be happy to share.

I am currently working on a Family History and Genealogy book for my daughter, filled with her ancestors and all of the descendants. It will include information about where they lived and what life was like at that point in time, along with family stories and pictures. When completed, it will be published in a hardbound book so she can show it off to everyone, and read it as often as she likes.

For what reason did you start genealogy research?
When we first started trying to get pregnant, we thought of a neat idea for telling our families. We were going to put together little books of our family trees and have them meet in the middle with our daughter. Initially, we went back to our grandparents and then I thought: why not go back one more generation? From there, it took on a life of it's own and now we are determined to get a very detailed and very deep family tree. What started out as a simple three generation tree has grown to a tree with at least one branch going back sixteen generations. And we're no where near being done yet.

Branches and Leafs

For those of you who keep up with my genealogical diggings and family history research:



Since this project was first started, back in October 2007, it has grown from a simple quest to do a simple pedigree, to an enormous, time consuming project. The tree goes back sixteen generations and includes nearly 1300 people. But there are still a lot of things I need to get and a lot of information I need to find. So I've decided to make up a to-do list for my genealogy and family history… Continue

Hello,

Your name came up when I did a search for FAUST. Were they in Summit Co., OH or Elkhart Co., IN? Let me know even if they weren't. Happy Hunting!

(Is anyone researching the Martin family from Ireland who came to Wisconsin/Michigan? John Martin was born in Ireland, as was his wife, Bessie and all their children. Bessie was born in 1830 and died in Wisconsin in 1915. They had three children: Joseph, Frank, Micheal. Joseph was born in 1871 in County Donegal, Ireland.)

I ran across this post this morning in searching for a Frank Martin who was my great grandfather. I found some things on ancestry.com but didnt get very far there. This Frank was born in 1872-73 from what i have found in Lincoln county, Ky and was married to a Sally. My grandfather which was Franks son Edgar Woolford Martin died at an early age of 28 back in 1924 in Newport, Ky so my father who was 6 at time never knew much family history. It was said that they came from virginia originally and we were black Irish is what my grandmother always told my Dad. I saw the post mentioning a Frank so i was wondering if it has any connection to what i'm looking for. Thanks very much!

Caro,
If you are still trying to get a "Family Tree Maker" program, I may a suggestion for you. Try the Library. I got my FTM from the Schaumburg Township Library in Illinois. Definately cheaper. Our library has a large section of videos, audio and computer games and programs. Just an idea.

Hi, Caro - Might you have any information on the Nallys descended from Michael Nally born in County Mayo, Ireland aboutt 1869. He came to Massachusetts between 1882 and 1895, but ultimately settled in the Pittsburgh area. Michael was married to Marie ---? (no info on her). Their children were Thomas (b. 1892); Mary (b. 1895); Joseph (b. 1897); John (b. 1901); and George (b. 1906).Son Josepn married Florence (b. 1897 in Pittsburgh). There children were Imelda (b" 1917); Howard A. (b. 1918), James (b. 1920); Manilla (?) (b: 1921; Lawrence (b. 1923) - killed in WW II; Paul (b. 1924); Alice ? Patricia ?

Michael Nally was my maternal grandmother's uncle. I learned later the she stayed in touch thourgh letters with all her relatives in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia who had also come to America.

But I haven't had much luck locating descendents.

Do you see any points of connection?
