Another Site to Try, Plus Another Site to Read.

63 Ways to Find Your Ancestors Birth, Marriage, Death, and Address Information - The Ancestor Hunt

I found this a bit ago but was tied up with seminar.  But do give it a whirl, one just never knows when what you are looking for will pop up for you.

It appears to offer ideas of where to look and I do not see fees involved.

 Pause long enough to gander over at this site also.
 It should excite some of you.  I bet as an archive they have lots we have not touched for this religious group.

A Free Site,,,,,,Discussed by Leland Meitzlier

 Having just scooted over to this new source of information, so wanting to share with you this news.

 First Leland Meitzlier, thanks for posting this so I can learn of it.   It looks like a site I will be using a quite a bit of.

 If you have not signed up for Leland's news at GenealogyBlog, maybe you should. I am always learning new ideas and thoughts from him and his writing group.

This blog he references covers Bios from McLean Co. Ill,  Posey co. IN, Lewis Co. Mo., Crockett Co., Tenn, and Lawrence Co. Tenn.  These are additions to what is already on the site.

22,000 biographies in 140 Counties across ten states. The latest those listed above.

Biographies are being added currently for Allegheny Co. Pa, Union Co. IA, Brown Co. Oh, Jefferson Co. Ky, Cross Co. Ark, and Scotland Co. Mo

I am delighted to see that this resource is provided by Hearthstone Legacy Publications.  They carry rare & early books.

Visit the Hearthstone Legacy Publications website here.

A new adventure is about to begin with all these sources being put in reach of potential answers.

WOW, this reminds me of Mr. Samuelson's pages of information he also shares.

Pioneer Families Community A paid site I have used.

When in Michigan for a extended stay I was helping my daughter in law with her surnames.

 I subscribed to  this site because it covered most of the areas of her research. It also subscribes to many of the areas I had kin in and had only recently learned about.

Subscribe to GA, VA, NC, SC, KY Genealogy Websites

 We both had kin in all these states.  At the time it was a bargain for what we were looking for.

No they do not know I  am writing about them but my dues are about due so thought I should share the potentially new place for you to hunt.

GA surnames TUTTLE
VA surnames HUFFMAN, SCOTT, MURRY, LEWIS,
NC surnames SCOTT,
SC surnames  JONES, SCOTT,
KY surnames SCOTT, LEWIS, HUFFMAN, HOFFMAN, MORROW,

Kentucky & Tennessee Research

Kentucky & Tennessee Research by Susi Pentico

Having brought up Google.com first, surprise it was not usgenweb.org. I went through free web sites to find information on Kentucky.

Remember that each state can follow this basic format for research. Tennesse, and other interior States, broke off of the coastal states.  So follow the lineage back to England for very early data.


Kentucky was taken from Virginia, where Tennessee was formed from North Carolina.

If you try usgenweb.org and find almost nothing for that state of county within that state please go to the archives for that state and pull up the data that was so freely shared with researchers since the early 1990's.

Kentucky was the first state to create such a site, other states soon followed. Some are very active yet today. Sad to say some are falling away with neglect and that should never happen to volunteers research efforts.

Prior to usgenweb.org, we had Rootsweb. Thanks Brian L.  Still using this site, everyone should exhaust the free sites before running to the paid sites.

Here in, is a list of my first used sites for Kentucky.

1.  I vary between google.com and usgenweb.org and Rootsweb.

  This comes from knowledge of the sites and what I am looking for.


Kentucky Research

Now we will start the development of the state. 

 Kentucky was part of Virginia in the beginning.
Remembering that, and Virginia was a British Colony in the beginning.


1777, Fincastle County divided into three parts creating: Washington, Montgomery and Kentucky Counties.

Kentucky Co. was to the south and westward of 
a line beginning on the Ohio at the mouth of the Great Sandy Creek and running up the same and the main, or northeasterly, branch thereof to the Great Laurel Ridge of Cumberland Mt. then south westerly along the said Mountain  to the line of North Carolina.

1780 Kentucky Co was divided: Jefferson, Fayette and Lincoln Co.

Soon became 9 counties and a full state with full consent from Virginia.

For lists, websites, family trees, charts and forms, books, obituaries try the various listed above free sites first.

http://kygeonet.ky.gov/tcm/

In hopes you remember to try local libraries, court houses, historical societies,
private libraries and college and university
venues.

Desecration at Riverside Cemetery

Did anyone see the news last night were heavy equipment went through the Military Cemetery in Riverside and mowed over the tombstones and did massive damage to this Cemetery?

It was on two channels in San Diego, CA.

I find this beyond comprehension.  Anyone smart enough to run heavy equipment has enough brains to know not to do this. This company needs to come in fix and repair and apologize with funds for all the damage done.

Having attempted to get current data via google it did not show up but we saw it on tv, large yellow heavy duty equipment running over the graves like they did not exist.

Here is link to the cemetery. It is really not real old like many.


 Riverside National Cemetery - Riverside, CA | Yelp

Articles about Riverside National Cemetery - Los Angeles Times




National Cemetery Service - Assistance for Veterans & Families‎

Riverside National Cemetery - National Cemetery Administration

Why is there nothing in the San Diego Newspaper or others?

This did happen we watched it on TV.

This is here because many of the genealogy people I work with are military and military retired.
