I was curious about the what happened to the three “thugs” in the story, so I set out to find some additional information.  I discovered that in 1930, the three of them lived within a half-mile radius of each other.  Stewart and Toohey lived on the same…

Between work and Daylight Saving Time kicking my butt this week, I’ve not really been able to do much in the way of my Do-Over except keep plugging away at adding documentation to my tree.  I’m still working on my maternal grandparents, and I’m not sure…

And now the story comes out about why the three thugs were speeding around town.  It’s just a shame that they got Pop’s name wrong.  This story must have been published within a day or two of the others, but I don’t know which paper. Attempt To Take…

Just when you thought it was over, the newspaper articles just keep comin’.  I don’t know which newspaper published this, but it is dated February 27, 1930.  In any case, it’s the best account of the harrowing event so far … Officers Gallagher and Lustman…

During the Genealogy Do-Over, as I’ve been going through the ephemera I inherited when my maternal grandmother passed away, I came across several prayer cards dating from 1933 to 1954 from both (apparently) Indianapolis and Ridgefield, New Jersey. As far…

I promise, this is the last entry for the Board of Commissioners for this issue of the newspaper.  The names in bold are those of my relatives – now I know I need to go see what Senate Bill 22 was all about and check on some tax records! Yankton Press &…

I continue to meticulously follow my document process for the “known” individuals in my tree … so far, I’m up to 9 people in my tree!  It’s slow-going, but I am confident that when I’m done it will be a thing of beauty.  I hit a bump in the road the other…

Story
Tagline
I want to connect with other people in the genealogy world. However, if you add me to your circles and I can't view your profile, chances are ... I won't add you back unless something about you says "genealogy."
Introduction
Paralegal by day, but my alter ego is a Genealogist.  I have been working on my genealogy in fits and starts since about 1990, when my grandfather passed away and I inherited his research. I have just begun working through the NGS Home Study Course, well on my way toward genealogy certification. You can contact me at lostancestors [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am a member of the Kiva Genealogists for Families team. Please consider joining the team and make loans to help alleviate poverty worldwide and create a new family tradition at the same time! 
Bragging rights
I completed my AAS in Paralegal Studies at Chattanooga State in 2011 - summa cum laude, no less ... and survived.
