"WHERES" in beginning research

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 10:20am 4 Comments

Less than 5% of the research materials available to you is on the net. Further, stumbling blindly around the net and wasting time with folks who likely know less than you do, or playing with most pay-for-genealogy websites, is akin to shooting at the woods from the back door hoping to bag a squirrel for breakfast; slim chance, indeed.

What a great name for a genealogical sleuth. Paul Drake was the private investigator for Perry Mason on the old TV shows. You've probably heard this before, but I couldn't resist.

Sorry Paul,
I honestly forgot I had joined this site until I got an email newsletter today. To answer your question, my primary interests in Marion County are Leonards, all but one of which moved away in the 1850s. James Herron Leonard was a well-known businessman/entrepreneur whose only child never had any surviving children of her own. James was the brother of my g-g-grandfather Daniel Leonard of Taylor County, Iowa. James' and Daniel's parents, William and Mary (Van Ort) Leonard are buried in Waldo Cemetery. They emigrated from Washington County, PA. in 1855.
Most of my family history is up on my Web site Leonard Legends & Legacies.
Again, apologies for not answering sooner. Seems Genealogywise doesn't notify me when someone leaves a comment. I've now subscribed to my own feed so it shouldn't be a problem in the future.
