About 5 years ago, Bill West challenged the Geneabloggers to put their ancestors’ names to song lyrics.  He’s brought that challenge again, and this is my [weak] attempt. I heard this song on the radio the other day and I couldn’t help but notice how…

Tying up loose ends ... or just making things worse?  You be the judge :)
As I mentioned in my previous post, my aunt stumbled upon a New York Supreme Court case that involved Billy Gallagher.  The original trial occurred in 1929 and arose out of the sale of some propert...

In case you missed it on Facebook, here’s the announcement: Now that I have received my great grandfather’s (Walter Gallagher) scrapbooks, the ownership of which the Ridgefield Public Library so graciously relinquished, I have created a new blog just for…

My 3rd great grandfather, Anton Heerdink, has been a question buried in a puzzle and wrapped in an enigma since I began researching the Heerdink line. Finally, I think I may have some answers. His story goes something like this: Anton Heerdink was born in…

Thanks +Jennifer Swart!  I found her too, but she didn't seem to fit age-wise with the rest of the crew ... plus, I'm not sure she was old enough to be sworn for an affidavit at that time.  But - stranger things have happened, I suppose :)

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.
