Thanks. I am only really lucky on one side. But I am very happy with all of them. I have been so lucky to have grandmother's and aunts who allowed me to take photo albums to kinko. I do love the old styles and hope that a little formality will come back in vogue while I am able to enjoy nice ties, tie clips, rings, etc. I frequently am complimented on my wardrobe and I barely pay much attention to it.

Thanks Katie. If you run across any Jones from southeastern Ky I'm looking for anything on Joshua,born abt. 1867 married to Susannah Back (Bach). ☺

Katie- Yes the Jones name is all to common to say the least which makes me wonder why. As far as any connection in our Jones line I have no idea. I have a problem with my Jones line in that I can find no information at all on my great-grandfather. I have been into genealogy for 10 years now and it is really my brick wall. He has never been found in any census or any other records. The only way I even know he existed is through family.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Before I do anymore research I need all the encouragement I can get. LOL

Two of the pages you sent seem to be the same, were there three pages or four? Just thinking. Thanks.

No problem, what I usually do is look at the documents over a few days and study them each day to see what else I might be able to read or understand. I do have one question, did you say that you did or did not find his baptismal record?

Thanks, I would be glad to review the pages. Who knows? My e-mail is

The records you referred to in your original comment do not support the idea that the mother just left the baby at the Foundling Hospital without more. Did your grandfather ever try to find his mother or father? Do you have a digital copy of what was sent to you by the Closed Record Office? Did they give you digital copy or a photo copy? Have you asked to see the original record? Just a few questions.

Hello,
I assume the date is 1882 not 1982? What do you know about the location of the Foundling Hospital? Who were the children left there? Where were the parents likely to live? You are right though, orphans and foundlings and illegitimate children all have the same type of problem. But occasionally you can find more information.

Hi Katie-
Thank you. :) I've been doing my research for three years, so I know my way around the internet and sometimes I get lucky. :)
I like to help folks get more info on their families, and it helps to get a break from my own brick walls. :)

Good morning, Katie-

Take your time, its always good to see where you've been and what records you have, it sometimes will lead you in new directions.

Also, if you are interested, I help out at Most Wanted, which is a Brick Wall group, and we are doing a lot of good work there. Once you've organized your work, why don't come check out the group?

feel free to send me what you have before you post to the group. :)

Hi Katie-
If you look at the PA Ancestors page, there is a place where it says Add A Discussion, if you click that you can add a post which which the replies will become a thread.

I would make a time line for the major people you are trying to trace including what records you have for them, then people can see what you have and where you have researched. :)

welcome!
Kate

HI Katie-
I saw your post on Pennsylvania Ancestors, if you'd like some help on your queries, I suggest you start a discussion on the group so we can keep track of what information you have already and the new items we may find for you?

Kate
