* Cincinnati Daguerreotype Photograph of 1848*
Microscopic Examination Reveals Genealogy Details of 1848
This will go into the depth of explaining how the daguerreotype photograph contained details beyond the naked eyes of the photographers, and how it took current technology to reveal them to today's researcher. The last few minutes of the video have some genealogy gems.

The National Genealogical Society's Family History Conference "The Ohio River: Gateway to the Western Frontier" is in the books. I'd call it a great success.

Photos from Spring Grove cemetery, Cincinnati
Another dreaded sunny day...


When +Lily Alice suggested we take an afternoon and visit Cincinnati's historic Spring Grove cemetery, I immediately did a little online research.

One of the first blogs I saw online listed it at the top of "Ohio's Creepiest Cemeteries."

Cretins.

There's nothing creepy about it. It's stunning. It's gorgeous. It's a huge, anachronism. Before evangelicalism seemed to create twisted, bleak fantasies of a heaven exclusive to the adherents of Calvin's 4 laws, there were parks like Spring Grove.

Here, you'll find a mix of melancholy, beauty, sorrow, hope, gentle care, and of course...grandiose monuments to ego.

Go see it.

Can anybody help Miles?
Ok, for my genealogy friends and friends from Ohio, maybe one of you can help me find info on an ancestor. I am looking for John Henry Leugers or Henry John Leugers (1876-1966). He married Anna Josephine Zumbrink in 1904. He lived in Mercer and Darke counties, Ohio. The problem is I have 2 death records with different dates and would like to resolve this. So, if you can help let me know.

The history of the Western Reserve is especially interesting to me because of my paternal line, but if you have any Ohio lines in your family tree you'll want to read this book!
