Making huge strides in my research lately. I have been able to knock down brick walls that have existed for 35 years...only to find there was another one behind it!
Pennsylvania has finally put death indices online and I was able to locate my missing great grandfather. Just waiting now for his actual certificate to come, assuring me that it really is him. I found what I think is my great grandmother also. The only CARGILL in the right time period with no first name, of course. We'll see when that certificate arrives too!
Now, I am contemplating putting some of my research online. I have a website already which I use for many other things but never my genealogy. This is something that I have always hesitated about since I see so many others take information and apply it to suit their own needs. Don't get me wrong, I want to share what I have done...I just don't want anyone to change it - you know, like sticking the square peg in a round hole - to make their own (usually unrelated) line fit into mine.
Let me know what you think!
