In my last post, Walter and another patrolman had just been appointed Sergeant, despite the objections of a couple of Council members.  These articles are undated, but I believe they are from April 10, 1931, like the last article.  Brace yourselves: here…

This article (thankfully) was preserved with the date, but not the name of the paper. Unfortunately when the article was laminated (yes, laminated), they neglected to unfold the bottom piece of the article, so that last inch or so of text is hidden.  In…

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 tell that you have an interest in genealogy ... chances are that I won't add you back and will likely block you altogether.
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 am currently enrolled in ProGen 24, working 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, at the age of 42 ... and survived.
