Curran, Curren, Currin - Horrace H Curran and Marinda Waldron Curran

For several years I have been searching for information on my Great Grandfather, Horrace H Curran and his wife Marinda.  I believe they were married in 1854+-.  According to 1860 U.S. Census they lived in Town of Chatham, PA and had three children; Silles, Alice and Mary.  My grandfather, John J, was born in 1868 and his death certificate indicates he was born in Lawrenceville, PA.

Its almost as if he fell off the earth after the 1860 Census - I've found no further information about…

“I wish I had met you…”

For the past few weeks I have been involved in a back and forth phone tag with a potential client.

Each time he’s called me, I returned the call, and each time I called, he was  busy and told me he would get back to me. A couple weeks ago he asked me to send him some more information about my work so I sent him a flyer, and links to several video clips and testimonials. But we never actually had “the conversation” about…

The Role of Fate in Genealogy

I have been able to find quite a bit of information in the last couple of weeks.  I received birth, marriage and death certificates ordered from England on quite a few members of my family.  We had concrete birth dates, concrete marriage dates, concrete death dates, at last.  My father stared at each one of them, touched them, smiled at them.  The most moving certificate form him was his father's birth certificate.  "I have people, " he said.  More certificates were ordered, and now we sit…
