Uncanny Events, Non explained Situations for Genealogists and Family Historians.
Having just read about a very real situation that may draw more tourist to a historic place of residence, I saw Yes do it.

Funny how we as genealogists tend to accept things more than others do when it come to the unusual…Continue

Who are we? Besides living organisms, we are a story, the details (sub-stories) are connected to other people’s stories and they are part of community stories, family stories, national stories…. you get where I’m going here.
I have always seen life from the perspective that there are the facts of what happened, and what we make those facts mean. The sum of those two things are our stories. They make up who we are, how we see the world, how others come to know us, and what we think of…Continue

I would be very grateful for any info on William Winborne (alias William Wen) and his spouse Elizabeth Wen.
They came to MA in early 1600's from England, moved around some and finally settled in Boston where their son was born in 1635 and he (John) later attended Harvard-then preached in Manchester for a couple of years.

Beginning Research - Your Opinion Needed
Beginning Research and finding some interesting thoughts have come to mind.
I am not the youngster just starting, with a computer and laptop and I phone.
I learned the solid way of paper and pencil and letters and calls. Research trips to libraries, visits to family members homes.
Yes, we still do all of these things but today we have the added concepts of I Phones, I Pads, computers, not to even mention…Continue

(copied from my blog at charteroakgenealogy.blogspot.com)
One of my biggest challenges in chasing down church records is figuring out if the church is still in existence. An open church may still hold its records - or at least know where they are - while a closed church's records are probably in an archive somewhere. For me, that often means a lot of Google searches, some estimated guessing (the Congregational Church in town is usually the original church) and some hope -…Continue

I have been working on what I refer to as a long-format video biography. My client has hired me for a year to develop a personal history as well as to film significant events during the year. We’ve been doing this since November 2011 and so far we’ve shot four different events. A couple of the events, we’ve turned into short individual videos to send out to people who attended while other footage is waiting to fit into its bigger scope.
Sunday I was at my client’s Super Bowl party,…Continue
