I chose to use Family Tree DNA, which purports to have 90% of the genealogy DNA market share. I ordered the mtDNAPlus test kit. It’s a little more expensive than the basic mtDNA kit, but I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied with lesser results and . . . → : CONTINUE READING

I am the grandaughter of Victor Augustus Plaskett b, March, 1888 in St. Croix, Danish West Indies and d. August, 1984 in St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands. Based on research it is my understanding that all Plasketts are related regardless of where they are from. There is a black side and a white side of the family which some may not know.
It appears that John Plaskett c. 1751 and Isabel Sergeantson, c. 1749 of Cumberland England had at least 8 children that we know of.… Continue

I found a great source record last week at the library. It’s a book called Revolutionary War Soldiers of Western North Carolina: Burke County, Vol. 1. The author is Emmet R. White and it was published in 1984 by Southern Historical Press, Inc. of Easley, S.C.
It has biographical sketches on many soldiers, including summaries of military . . . → :… Continue

If you have Ancestors from the Isle of Axholme (north-west Lincolnshire in England), a very good site is Axholme Ancestry
. There's more about it here
The site actually covers a bit more than the Isle of Axholme itself, and includes south-east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire as well -- Humberside, in fact. So if you have any ancestors or other relatives… Continue

In my last post, I addressed the question of who owns the genealogy?
Ownership of the information is an interesting question. As an example,
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) microfilmed the
Swedish Church records. A copy of the original microfilms is in the
Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Another copy went to the
Swedish National Archives. The Archives then "sold" the rights to these
films to Genline.com. Genline then digitized… Continue

Randomness can be defined as events that happen outside predictability, prior knowledge and beliefs. I’ll start with an example. What has Paris Hilton done for the fine arts? The answer: NOTHING. And yet, she became the next big thing. Continue
Now let’s take this concept to the world of publishing with the idea that a writer’s manuscript, deep within the bowels of the slush pile, is discovered at random – regardless of whether you are Hemingway resurrected or just another…

During the past few posts, I have been examining who owns the genealogy
companies. What I find is a mixture of huge multinational corporations
and family owned businesses. I did have an ulterior motive in examining
the ownership however, I had several larger issues to discuss and needed
to know a little background before I jumped into the controversial
arena. When you realize the diversity of the ownership of the larger
genealogy companies, you can imagine… Continue

Down the home stretch on who owns the genealogy companies. This time I
look at MyHeritage.com
. Another of
the non-U.S. companies, headquartered in "the beautiful village of Bnei
Atarot, near Tel Aviv, Israel, founded by German Templers in 1902 under
the name of Wilhelma." See MyHeritage

Today I consider Genline.com
, this is
the second of the bigger online genealogy businesses located outside of
the United States. It has 18,224,911 images consisting of about 36.1
million pages of Swedish Church records. Genline is located in the
Globen area of metropolitan Stockholm, Sweden. Unless you have a direct
interest in Swedish ancestors, it is unlikely that you have ever even
heard of Genline. Quoting from their… Continue

In the not too distant past, I had a lot of news to share about
FamilySearch. There were upgrades to New FamilySearch, new additions to
Record Search and whole lot of other things going on. Recently, things
have apparently, at least from the perspective of an outsider, slowed
down considerably. I thought it might be a good idea to take stock and
evaluate each of the more accessible websites from FamilySearch.
First, let's take a look at the parent… Continue

Any Help would be appreciated..
