I am trying to learn how to blog.

I have networked blogs on my facebook but can't figure out how to be able to post there. So can only read blogs. I seem to have to sign back into facebook if I use my gmail account for anything. I get so frustrated. I watched DearMyrtle from the archives on blgging and set up a blog on I have yahoo as my search engine and I use Internet Explorer IE 8. I also have a yahoo mail account. I am so lost. I rarely use google to search but everything DearMyrtle and Legacy seems to suggest… Continue

Photo Sharing: Who Keeps Photos In Their Purse Anymore?

These days, many of us take photos with our phones and send them to each other via email or post them online to various photo sharing websites such as Flickr and Twitpic. I’ve also got photos on my Facebook profile and there’s some video clips of me speaking on my website. I don’t have photos of my…

First Church, Nashua, New Hampshire

When we first moved to Londonderry, New Hampshire I was surprised to find there was no Congregational church.  Nearly every town in Massachusetts has one!  Almost every New Hampshire town has one, too, but since Nutfield was founded by the Presbyterians, the churches remained Presbyterian for a long time.  The First Church in Derry changed to Congregational in the 1800s, and I tried a few services there.  My husband was working in Nashua, and he said several co-workers attended the First…

Thomas Carroll enigma!

I have a brick wall and I need some new directions to go.  The problem is the name of the person is "Thomas Carroll".  I know when he was born only from his tombstone and death certificate.  The first census in which he could definitely be identified was in Fairfax Station, VA - 1860.  I have a lot of other information, but here's the problem.


From the beginning of the Irish famine and soon after, so many "Thomas Carroll"s came over on ships.  Some of them even have the same…

Hello my name is Paula Jones, I'm from Oregon and I'm new to this site, but not new to Genealogy.  My paternal grandfather  and my mom gave me the interest in learning about my family history and once I started I was addicted.  Hopefully I can find some answers to a few dead ends I have come across.

I have received yet another enquiry based on family trees hosted on which contain wrong information.

Now, I am not for one moment saying that everything on my family tree, freely accessible on the internet (though not right now, but that is a different story), is 100% correct, but my database allows anyone to 'Suggest' corrections. I have, for example, recently made a major change based on outcomes from DNA research

However, correcting something on Ancestry is a…

The Schooner Fame, and three Abner Polands

The schooner Fame is moored in Salem, Massachusetts at Pickering Wharf.  She was built in Essex, Massachusetts by Harold Burnham, and launched in 2003.  The Burnhams have been building boats in Essex since the 1640s.  The original schooner Fame was an Essex fishing schooner used as a privateer in the War of 1812.  

The interesting connection is that Abner Poland III served on board the Fame in the War of 1812 by Abner Poland III of Essex, Massachusetts.  I’m descended of his sister,…

Researching Review regarding the Dashes



Researching Review


 How often do you open  your genealogy program and review what is actually in there?

 Are you aware of the files with out census information?  So much can be garnered from census data.


 Do you know if you have completed the information for Church data or marriage dates? The same applies for burial and death dates. 


 Amazing how  things look so nice and complete  but when you really start looking we…
