In the late 1800's in the town of Galatz, Romania a pogram against the Jews of that town took place. In the dark of night on a fall evening a 10 year old Lillian Rosenberg was secreted away from the burning and killing of the ghetto. After witnessing the killing of her parents a group of gypsies rescued her from certain death and smuggled her away never to see Rumania again.
I cannot to this day imagine the utter horror and sorrow she must have experienced. The anguish she must have…Continue

I am back to doing genealogy research after having to take a break of several years because I just didn't have time to spend on it. I'm starting with my Cox line and have come upon an interesting book online called The Cox Family in America that gives a lot of history on the several Coxes that came to America from England, Sweden, Holland, Scotland to name some. And even includes early genealogies for many of them. From what I understand Coxes from these different lines spread far and wide…Continue

Am hoping to network with those researching the Gilleland/Gilliland name. I have a John Gilleland buried in Decatur Coiunty Indiana about 1834. Marker says 5th PA Regiment Rev War and thats about all I know. I do know he originally came into Indiana and settled in Union Couinty, then moved to Decatur County. Buried adjacent to him is my 5th Great Grandfather John Gilliland. He was in the War of 1812.so most likely is to young to be old Johns son. I do know young John married Susanah…Continue

Just joined the site and was excited to see so many people searching the Barnett clan. It's been very helpful in my search. But...one person seems to be elusive and that is my 3rd gg, Albert Barnett born in Spotsylvannia, VA in 1823 and died in Kirksville, MO in 1900. He married Sarah Elliott and had two children, James Thomas Barnett and Harrietta Barnett. He was in the Missouri Malitia and before that he went to California for the Gold Rush. I did notice that Ambrose…Continue

GenealogyWise.com I have used for several years now. I never see anyone writing about the great advantages of using GenealogyWise.com for posting for a surname or for attending a chat.
Chats many time have leaders that present classes. I have done this in the past myself. At one time I was very proficient with Pennsylvania Research, Maryland Research and Virginia Research.
Having done classes for almost 10 years for the Golden Gate Forum owned by George F., it helped me to…Continue

This is my first blog post, so please bear with me. I've been digging up both my husband's and my own family history since about 1985, but blogging is new to me. I hope to use this blog to help me organize and clarify my discoveries...I tend to be a bit ADD in my research, I set a goal to focus on and inevitably find myself side-tracked, digging into an entirely different person or branch than I had intended!
Since I am currently typing this (PAINSTAKINGLY) on an on-screen keyboard,…Continue
