I buy old photos when ever and where ever I see them when they are priced reasonably. Then I post them on my facebook page and when someone can claim them I return them free of charge to the family.
Check it out and see if any of yours are there.

Treasure Chest Thursday ----------MMMMMMM big ?
Yes, I think it was a Treasure Chest Thursday but not maybe in a way one would think.
We gave testimony in regards to someone who walked amongst us today. It was good to hear the words
that were spoken.
My family is blessed to walk amongst these people and claim them as long long time friends more like family.
One does not need to see them often to remember all the good things and…Continue

I have to wonder what caused my grandfather to start using an alias. At first I thought it was because he had abandoned an second family but yet I found his draft registration and it was in his alias. Address and birth date matches my grandfather so I know it was him. This was before he married his second wife. He used this alias for the rest of his life so what was he running from?
I know life was hard for him and his family. Seems like his father held many jobs during his…Continue

Digging into the Ellis Island passenger registry, I came across someone who bore my name, Pedro Sanoja, and visited the United States in 1919.
The Ellis Island passenger registry listed him as Pedro Sanoja, ethnicity:
Venezuela, Spanish-American, only two years old at the time of arrival, and coming from Veracruz, Mexico, in transit to Caracas, Venezuela.
The young Sanoja arrived with his parents, Juan and Matilde Sanoja (34 and 19 years old, respectively) on Oct…Continue

Today I went to the message boards to see what I could see.
I put in a surname and started reading the boards response.
What a surprise to find, there was information that I had not looked for before.
The boards change as people answer queries so some times they do not move for weeks or months and other times
they move rather quickly.
It reminded me to look for more than just a surname when…Continue
We all began this search for a particular reason. How it became an obsession is the same. We cant help but feel the excitement of adding leaves to the branches in our tree. We keep looking for more and more.
In 1970 my History teacher Mrs. Carrol assigned us the project of making a family tree. At first I panicked. I did not know anything about my family. All of my grandparents were deceased. My father had a hard childhood and spent most of it in a childrens home in New…Continue

I've often found when researching that the tinest snippet of information can lead to a wonderful surprise. For example, typing surnames into Google Book Search has led me to the following:
A tiny snippet from a railroad magazine that was published for employees, mentioned my father's name. As my father has passed away, you can imagine how this peaked my curiosity. I decided to research the magazine only to find it was no longer in print. Not one to give up so easily, I…Continue

Genealogy at Christmas Time - Yes Family Does Find You
Genealogy at Christmas Time I wrote about yesterday as to why to write Christmas letters and what the many benefits of the season can bring.

When my day is hectic and I'm feeling frazzled, how relaxing it is to just step back into time. I look around me at all the conveniences that modern day has to offer and wonder how my ancestors ever managed. Old pictures, a small glimpse of their lives and towns, brings delight, wonder and a thirst to know more. Whether I am combing through State Archives or searching old newspapers, that tiny clue, the little nugget that gives me the breakthrough I am looking for, makes the pressures of…Continue

I started out this week on a note of frustration. There was one week to go until Christmas and my office was filled withboxes of cards, boxes of client gifts, and lots of nothing seeming to get done. I was remembering last year, in early January, how I thought to myself that before I knew it, the holiday season and end of the year would be right around the corner. And here I was, sitting at that…Continue
