Here is an unknown male Nelson born in Dover, New Hampshire to Louis Nelson and Mary Anderson on 14 Oct __. I found this on Ancestry. I hope this helps someone find their ancestor.

Memories and a small post card can bring happiness, joy and sometimes tears to your eyes. Check out my post about today's genealogy tidbit June Butka's Genealogy photos on Facebook. 

Don't forget to record those memories.

Their descendants will be honored and thankful they are part of such a family. 
A high school principal was brought to tears when the senior class unanimously decided to give up their class trip to donate nearly $8,000 to her medical care.

+June Butka Thank you, June, for watching. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm planning to head back to Sutton in the next few weeks to get more video. I have a new, better drone that takes stunning video, and I'm expecting some really great footage. Stay tuned, and thanks for watching.

Twice now I have gone to the Newburyport Massachusetts Library; both times I forgot to take a photo of library.

I did take one of the Boardwalk.

Goal for next visit in two weeks - TAKE A PHOTO of the LIBRARY!!!

New Hampshire History and Photos.
Here is a great interactive site to read about Historical New Hampshire. You can even add your own favorites. I was going to add Castle in the Clouds photo below. They have a nicer one already there.

FTM2014 Questions  - 
 
When I'm in the search mode from my FTM2014 to the Ancestry site, I noticed media I marked private is showing. When I log into my Ancestry Account only the two public is showing. Should I be concerned that my  private media is displaying on my Ancestry search from my FTM2014 program?

I don't know if I saw your 5/5 message on FB. If I did, then I probably responded. Just was this message when Billy responded.

So, were are we on this "problem"?

#"Oldest Known Person in the Untited States in 1868."

The New England Historical & Genealogical Register for the Year ending 1868 Vol XXII page 310 has  a notation of the oldest person known. Here is a transcription of the note.

"The oldest Person Known- A colored woman, Mrs. Flora Stuart, of Londonderry N.H., the Manchester American says, is the oldest person known in the United States. She was born in Boston, in 1750, and consequently is twenty-six years older than the Declaration of Independence. As she tells the story, her father and mother, when she was three months old, came into the possession of the Simpson family of Windham, N.H., as slaves and remained with them until after abolition of slavery in that State. She called her maiden name after that of her master's family, Simpson. She lived in Rockingham County, in the towns of Windham, Lononderry, and Candia from her childhood. Long ago she was left a widow, and has now living two sons and a daughter."

This small paragraph has a goldmine of information, for the descendants of Flora Simpson Stuart; the Simpson family of Windham descendants; anyone looking for news of the time "Manchester American"; and the social beliefs before and after the revolution. 

I'm posting this in hopes that it may reach some of those descendants.
