I complained, and was largely ignored. This forum is obviously another Mormon missionary tool. So I will leave the group in peace. I have no desire in being part of a Mormon missionary effort.

+Paul Gorry, Genealogist - Gorry Research Yes, that's as far as I got on Lucretia. I have already started posting on this subject, but my point was to demonstrate the type of thing that should be posted in this community versus what should not.

This forum does not represent itself as a forum to promote a certain genealogy loving religion...or is this forum actually an underground method to perform recruitment for a certain genealogy loving religion?

I really think this forum should not be where any member expresses their joy and blessings received from their deity.

An interesting new podcast from Gimlet Media - Twice Removed.

A new family history podcast hosted by A.J. Jacobs. They say we're one big family: this is the show that proves it. You will be filled with delight... or abject horror. You never know. It's family.

Many folks attempt to prove royal bloodlines with #geneatic #genealogy. Is it possible? I thought this video was a fun explanation.

Hello I'm new to this group but not to Genealogy been at it since 1989 I
Always wondered about my Bio. Dad. I knew who he was, his name, his Mother
His Father had passed before I came along. All I knew at age 3 is that he's gone.

MY STORY

Last time I saw him. He was in a very nice box made into a bed. There were lots of people around and Mom was crying so we're lots of others. Mom held me up to tell him goodbye I tried to wake him up but he wouldn't he felt cold I kissed his face. Then a man talked to he people. Then we prayed I knew how to because Mom and Dad had taken me to church a lot. Then a group of men came wearing uniforms. They took the flag off his box and folded it in a weird way they made it into a triangle then gave it to Mom. She cried a lots more. So did my Dads Mom. I couldn't understand what's Dead mean any way when your 3years old. Daddy was only sleeping. He'd wake up later and come home. Then some other men came and and they were in uniform too. Only they had guns. They started shooting them, I was scared then I crawled into Moms lap crying. At some point another man played a funny song on a bugle. Then people moved flowers out of the way and they put Daddy's box in the hole. Then we had to move out of the way so we set in Grandpaddies car. Lots of people left. When we went back the hole was gone and flowers were every where. This all seemed like a funny game to me, but where did Daddy go. I bet he's gone to work. Everyone else my Aunts, Unclels older cousins and my Dads Mom had left.. We stayed a long time. Mom just set in the dirt beside the flowers and cried and pulled her hair. Her Mom and Dad had to make Mom leave. We went to their house. We stayed there for Days. Mom cried and stayed in bed. Grandma and Grandpa took care of us. I watched and waited for Daddy to come and get us and take us home. He never came home again!

NOW FOR GENEALOGY
I was given a Genealogy as an adult, Married for the 2nd time with 4 children.
We were at a reunion on my husbands side and one of his cousins wife had worked it for her husband. She told me how she did it, and I went home with the worksheet she gave me and decided a few days later to do one on my Daddy. I started with my Mom. She gave me a lot of information to jump start my journey. Next I found a Genealogy library and the ladies there were great.
They gave me a list of sources to use. Showed me THE U.S. CENSUSES. They gave me census sheets for each year of the census. A small 3 generation genealogical sheet and showed me what to do, using information Mom had given me.

MY LINES JUST THE BASICS

COTHRAN
JOHNS
NEWTON (Stepfather)

This is my parents and me.
I was born Dolores Gail COTHRAN I married a COOK then divorced while pregnant and remarried before the baby came by 3 days (lots more info if anyone cares to know, just ask) Then I became a MOORE.

I work on 42 Lines at last count and have books, Genealogies, The Red Bible for genealogiest.
My Research is a work in progress and I'm totally unorganized I have Documents but not organized completely, working on that.

Until I was friended on "Roots Web" way back when. EVERYONE had failed to tell me to Attach or even put in location of source so that's a major one. They are in boxes and files.
I'm working on it.

This is just my introduction to say hi glad I found you

I don't know if anyone else here does recreational (by which I mean unrelated to one's own family) genealogy but — every once in a while — I do. These are the descendants of Isaac Smith Loyd and Elizabeth Singer, which I collated in the last few days because Isaac & Elizabeth's son was the famous American chess and puzzles personality Sam Loyd (1841-1911) and someone once asked about his descendants.

I just wanted to post the link so that Google knows of its existence — which sets up a future possibility of someone in the list googling themselves, finding it. I bet half of these folk don't even know that they are closely related to Sam Loyd!
Isaac Smith Loyd b. 1803, Philadelphia PA d. 15 Aug 1879, Plainfield NJ & Elizabeth Singer b. 14 Aug 1800, Philadelphia PA d. 26 Feb 1894 | Rebecca S. Loyd | b. 10 Apr 1829, PA | d. 25 Dec 1910, Plainfield NJ | Thomas Loyd | b. 8 Sep 1830, Philadelphia PA | d. 7 Mar 1914, Plainfield NJ | Joseph ...

So, yes, Church duties and genealogy go hand in hand for me. You can't have one without the other, in my opinion. You can either like it or not. But I am not going to hide my religion just because someone gets offended. Like I said, that is part of my history. I have a long history of both. The least you can do is just move on. Besides, I don't see anybody else sharing a lot of what they are doing, just criticizing me for what I'm doing.

Does anyone in this group happen to understand German and therefore be able to read German genealogical records? On my mom's dad's part of the family it is German, and I have little knowledge on German records and how to find ancestors from German records. This part of my genealogy is like a root cut short in comparison to the rest of my tree. Even if you have any links that would be helpful. No spam please.

I started my research as gift for my daughter so she could have an idea of where she came from. So far it's been a blast finding out about our ancestors. I'm a member on Ancestry. But I've found a lot of cool sites here.Can't wait to try them!!
