I listened to 5 lectures on "methodology techniques" which will change the way I do research. These lectures are still available for purchase & viewing until August 16th.
For the past two years, I've bought the video recordings offered by the NGS convention as I haven't been able to attend in person. This year, they offered two tracts: "The Immigration & Naturalization Process" and "Methodolog...

I'm working on putting together the pieces of my recently discovered Correy family: the most interesting family I've found. But, I have to put together the members of this branch! Some of them might not even belong. A letter to Jane McClenachan is one piece to this confusing puzzle.

I came across this sad obituary for the half-sister of my great, great grandfather. She died from "heart disease and exhaustion" after taking care of her husband & 3 children who were suffering from typhoid fever.

John Vincent, a War of 1812 veteran, was sadly declared a "habitual drunkard" and his father-in-law attempted to take his property, presumably to keep it safe. But, shortly after John died, his father-in-law died, too. So, John's widow sued to get the money she felt her & her children deserved.
John Vincent, a veteran of the War of 1812, was declared by the Court to be a "habitual drunkard" in 1840. He was about 48 years old and, according to the 1840 census, had 8 children living at home including four under the ag...

I found out more about my 4th great grandmother's younger brother who went raspberry picking, had a convulsive fit, and died in a brook. I'm thankful it appears he was quite loved and cared for.

In 1896, the new law firm of Biddle, Boyd, & Sheppard filed their first case. It was the case of Robert Stewart (son of my 4th great grandfather, also named Robert Stewart) vs the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railway Company, oth...
