Week #8 of 52 Ancestors: Vernetta Gertrude (Jones) Barnes
Vernetta Gertrude (Jones) Barnes 13 June 1892 to 1 August 1962 (Not sure when this was taken, perhaps 1946?) I'm so far behind that I must whip out three of these blog posts asap! So forgive me if I merely skim over what I know about my mother's mother, Ver...

Week #5 of 52 Ancestors: Samuel Cox of Beaminster, Dorset, England
I'm working in Salt Lake City at the Family History Library for ten days. In recent years, the way we research has changed considerably, and it will continue to change. Today when I search the library catalog I'm just as likely to find the records I seek on...

Week 3 of #52 Ancestors: Philip Joseph Sullivan (1911-1969)
First, let me just effuse about what a good exercise this is! By writing about an ancestor I take a critical look at what I've gathered so far. Things I may have neglected for years look completely fresh and I am inspired to search in the many databases tha...

Week #7 of 52 Ancestors: Brick Wall Woman Hannah Woodman (ca. 1775-ca 1821) of Durham, NH
My lovely fan chart stops dead at 4th g-grandparents Hannah Woodman and husband William Jackson. It's quite unsightly. Hannah has been the most distant ancestor in her line on my charts since I inherited my mother's genealogical research. How Not to Researc...
