Finding Kin Amongst Our Own. Yes, a Success.
Well, today we had a great day at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library. Randy Seaver presented data on Probate Records and the affiliated records that go with them. 40 people in attendance Virginia said and 2 guests. Welcome Guests always.
After the presentation we had an time to chat about our research areas and potentially link up with other people.
After our meeting last month Arlene W and Ann S. made the connections. If you do not ask, you do not find out if they are kin, even distant kin count in Genealogy.
I was attempting to post a map site where you can fill it in with clicking on the colors and wouldn't it be fun to use just for where you ancestors were from. IE color in the states where your looking for information then others know to watch for your surnames when digging.
As it is, it is color coded for if you have been, been there often, lived there awhile or lived there alot. Even that gives others more information.
Here is hoping others made connections today. It seemed everyone had family that could be in the neighborhood of someone else. Having seen a lot of interaction by our members present it heartened me greatly.
Here is the map that Randy and others have brought to our attention.
