Hi all I would like to know if anyone know of the SAVIEL family in India and Burma.

I joined GW on the first day - don't know what number I was, probably six hundred-and-something. One thing that attracted me was the ability to connect with others who are researching the same surnames as me, in an environment where all had the same interests - genealogy, family history and the like. I watched for hours and days as the membership grew and grew and grew.
Every day I search the member list for my surnames that are a bit less common, but I didn't know how uncommon they… Continue

I love this story. "Just regular folks" in the family tree. Thomas Varney was born about 1630 in the Barbados and removed to Massachusetts to settle at the Chebacco section of the town of Ipswich before 1650. His first wife was Abigail Proctor, who was also just a "regular folk" except that her brother John was hung as a witch in 1692. Perhaps being a bit different from all the other puritans in town ran in the family.
Uusally all the women in the family tree have blank spaces next… Continue

I never rode a school bus to school. I know as this is written, most children (and even parents) might wonder why. The rule was school buses only ran outside of the city limits. The rest of us got to school the best way we could. No excuses were accepted for lack of ride, rain, etc. My own children (Michael and Emily) also never rode a school bus to school. Where we lived in Lake Jackson, Texas was within two miles of their schools: A. P. Beutel Elementary, Lake Jackson Intermediate School, and… Continue

Call it "Dog Days of Summer" or just plain biting off more than I can already chew...I just opened up my grandson's family tree website to the dogs or their ancestral pets.

John Jones (son of John Jones and Mary Doughty) and Mary Brown (daughter of Preserve Brown Jr. and Mary French) can be found in old Pennsylvania Quaker Meeting records, including their marriage.
Gedcoms then lose them in regard to descendants from them.
Many of the Brown family settled along the East Fork of the Susquehanna River and can be found along it from Wilkes-Barre downstream to Sunbury.
I suspect that this John Jones is the John Jones who died in… Continue
