My great-grandfather, George Henry Mallalieu, is the reason I don’t play golf.
He was born 28 Oct., 1862, in Millington, Md. Mallalieu is a Huguenot name, and we can trace his line back to the 1700s in England.
Although he was born in Millington, on the Eastern Shore, he lived in Glen Rock, N.J., and he was an executive to American Woolen Mills, until he retired in 1929. Millington was named for the mills there, and a newspaper account says the Mallalieus owned… Continue

I don’t guess it would surprise many people that among the top ten heroes of my life several were teachers.
Like everyone, I suppose, the nature of my heroes changed as I got older. In the 1940’s there was Roy Rogers. That hero worship would later turn to admiration as I followed his life while I was an adult. The “King of the Cowboys” first fascinated us in the movie theater and then on early television. Since I was a child during the last… Continue

We all have different views about the right and wrong ways to do genealogy. Some genealogists are working toward making genealogy an actual academic discipline, which means stressing the importance of methodology and sources. Other genealogists are more traditional and do not care to bother with the academics of it all and just want to follow their line as far back as possible and not worry about "proving" through sources or multiple sources who relates to who. On mailing lists, through blogs,… Continue

I seek to solve the mystery of Jacob Arney, who died in Lincoln County, North Carolina in 1784.
Part of the dilemma is that this Jacob Arney has been wrongfully tied to a Frederick Ernigh, who arrived in the USA in 1732. Most researchers of this particular line of Arneys tie this Jacob to Frederick, incorrectly. Dr. Tom Rider, who was one of the few who began this research, back in the early 1950's, also made such an assumption. Then in researching the Pennsylvania State Archives,… Continue

I thought someone here at GenealogyWise would be interested in this story too.
One of my passions is remembering and honoring those who have sacrificed so much, so that we can enjoy freedom. An article caught my eye yesterday morning, so I thought I'd share it. From the BBC News, "Henry Allingham, the world's oldest man and one of the last surviving World War I servicemen, has died at the age of 113, his care home has said.

Sounds like a stupid question to some people, but for years I wondered about the people in my past who made me the person I am today. Of course certain events and things in life will make you and mold you into who you are, but I need to know about my ancestors. Who were they? Where did they live? What did they do? What did they look like? Do I look like any of them? Do I get my kind heart from one of them or my temperament from someone else? I started researching my family tree about 15 years… Continue

One of the first things I learned in my genealogy courses regarded the ethics of displaying information of living relatives. When a genealogist publishes his or her family's pedigree charts or family history, understanding proper etiquette of displaying living relatives information is imperative. If you happen to publish the birth dates of your aunt and she gets upset with you, she may not want to help you with your genelaogy anymore. Publishing information that helps to identify living… Continue
