As an introductory post, I felt this was an appropriate subject. After all, as a genealogist or family historian, your overall goal is to fill in as much of the family tree as possible; to find out who the people were who are responsible for your very existence! Brick Walls in your tree prevent that, which is obviously frustrating. I want to talk about some of my own brick walls, and perhaps some things that have helped me break through previous brick walls. Do you have information for…Continue

Hello to all of you in the genealogy wise group!
My name is Mike Napper and I have been doing research on my family for some time. I have learned that what is written is not always true and a lot of errors occurred in census data recording between the questions asked and interpretation of the answers received. It has been my experience to hit hot spots and really gain information and to turn around and crash into a brick wall making no progress. I don't give up; but,…Continue

I cannot find anything on these two, my 3rd Great Grandparents. When their son, Walter Morris Flint was born they were in Dracut, Billerica, Tewksbury area. Birth date of Walter was Jan. 1, 1831-1833. It varies by record. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

My 2nd ggfather Walter was born on Jan 1, 1831-1833, in either Dracut, Billerica or Tewksbury Mass., depending on the document. I can find nothing on his parents. Any information on Samuel or Mary or suggestions as to where to look would be so helpful. Thanks,

The reason for this article came about after a rather public argument I had with a person who is considered the greatest authority on the history of all things Mayflower and the Scrooby movement and the Walloon church. I myself believe this to be true to an extent. I did find him to be mistaken in a couple of matters that I have researched most diligently. He had made the statement and published it in books that Francis Cooke of the Mayflower was a Walloon. I vigorously disagree…

In reference to my previous post about the adult daughter moving in being short-term....uh...NO! She's still here! And I am showing my inability to set myself a routine, Guess I've always been a bit of a free-spirit, I'm adaptable and deal with life as it comes.
Recently, I've found myself spending less time on Facebook and more time on Ancestry. It's the best way to lessen the stress of living in a world gone insane....this sad, new America, Trump's version of America. For a few…Continue

Good day to you all. The sun is out here and breeze is calm at the moment. It will probably rise up around 2:30 or
3 pm and get much cooler.
Resting my shoulder and neck, so instead of trying to read lots of fine print, I did a a bit of wandering.
I am just getting the hang of Pinterest. But I am learning that there is lots of free information out there that is
commented on differently depending on what…Continue
Easter and the changes.
Easter was a great event when I was small. It was still a great event as a young mother.
I so enjoyed the getting together with Cousins, Aunts, Uncles and friends.
As our family grew, and young adults married it was harder to get together but we did manage a few great events
with relatives and friends. Most of my parents friends were treated equally as relatives. We even called them Aunt
and Uncle or Grandpa and…Continue

5 Generation Charts and Sharing of Information. By Susi Pentico
Much to my dismay, the computer system would not show up on the screen. There fore, I started with what I was going to end with. Nor did we complete the helping of each other as intended but we did get names and places out there for us to think about.

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
