Did you know we have an active chat community here on Gen Wise? There are usually people in the room willing to do lookups, answer questions, give advice, or just talk about genealogy. We also have scheduled talks on various subjects including trivia on Wednesday and Saturday nights. Please join us sometime.
Thank you! It looks like we live very close to each other. I am originally from Kansas but have lived in Houston since I was 14 years old.
I saw that you are also researching the Vance name and that you have a book? That sounds interesting. I am a beginner. My Vance roots start with my 2nd great grandmother, Martha "Mattie" A. Vance, born Jul 1832 in Macoupin, IL, died Feb 1912 in Neosho County, KS.
Thank you, Mrs.Ellsworth for being interested in other peoples genealogy. Yes, I'm still looking for my grandmother birthplace. If you have any information about her it would be appreciated. I have her husband, my grand father,(Wright), back to the Rev. war.
