Genealogy Hack: Hunt for Neighbors
Ever have trouble finding an ancestor in a record collection, such as a census? I have a little genealogy hack that you have to try. German names are quiet challenging to find English language records. My 3rd great-grandfather Joseph Geißler  has at least s...

Was Lackman a name or a statement?
We shouldn't read too much into the names of women who appear 'alone' in census records but I couldn't help but wonder why the records dried up for Marietta Hicks who appeared in the 1930 US Census in Ohio after her marriage to my great uncle Samuel Leroy B...

Should I believe the paper tree?
A few years ago, my cousin sent me some information from Germany. He had contacted a researcher in Germany and asked for some information on our Mack relatives and their friends the Puseckers. He received a wonderful letter in response to his queries. A swe...

Okay history buffs... we're having a debate over whether this statement is true or not.

"By the end of D-D, The Allies had stopped the German advance and slowly began driving back German forces."

What say you about this statement? #history   #genealogy   #WWII

Not all allied troops that landed in Normandy were on the beaches. Many parachuted in behind the lines and, by the end of the day allied forces controlled the entrances to the beaches and exits to the battlefields.

The German advance was a planned crossing of the channel. The Allies/American advance was across the channel and into France.

So I would say the quote - whoever said it - is essentially correct.
