Moving away from the paternal line of my father, I am exploring his grandmother's line and will follow other maternal lines on my father's side, as long as I have the patience. And patience it takes! Oh so hard to cherchez les femmes!
My great-grandmother, Catharine Sampsell Kaser married at eighteen and was surrounded by Kaser family from then to eternity.

Hi everyone. Any tips on how to break through the "cant find anymore information" roadblock? I can trace my family to the early 1900s Ohio but cannot with any level of accuracy trace them to Wales or Ireland.

Mary Jones.  Can there be a more common name than this? That was what I thought while researching this ancestor, before I found her maiden name. One of my goals for researching my family history was to have a "full"...

There's a lesson here. Don't assume you know all you need to know about a relative, even when you knew them personally.  Research uncovered lots of surprises about my uncle Truman Bucklew. #52Ancestors #familyhistory

Like Father, Like Son

I want to briefly revisit the life of the infamous Henry Pearson, as presented in 'A Life Out of Balance', before I then take a look at the life of one of his sons: Frank Belshaw. There were some striking parallels in their lives, and some considerable deceit and lying in the records.

My uncle, Keith Kaser, pictured here on top left, at his father's tin shop in Killbuck Ohio, became a County Clerk of Holmes County, Ohio. I remember him as my #52Ancestors contribution this week, relying on many newspaper articles about his activities.
My Uncle Keith Kaser struggled to make a living early in his life, but built a political career.

A Story of Three Brothers

Well, sort of. The archetypal “three brothers” story usually involves transatlantic travel, but my story involves travel between two far-flung locations in 19th Century England. It also includes a small lesson for family historians.

When entering locations that occur before 1776, should they all be entered as "(state) British Colony of America" instead of a state and USA?

I think it is a matter of preference. Some people put in the current location for mapping purposes but then add a not as to what the past location was.
