I am new to Genealogy and started out well. But I hit a wall. By using the United States, New York Census and included the input from a relative with information, some names on the family tree started to fill in. I was able to cross reference my family tree as I was filling in the names on tree with accurate information. However, even though I have found out who my Grandparents are, there is missing information. Such as middle name, date of birth, marriage, etc. I was hoping to access birth and marriage certificates. The knowledge I acquired so far will not allow me to fill in Great, Great Grandparents correct information. Because there are people with the same first and last name I searching for, residing in the same location and very close birth dates. I need to cross reference everything as much as possible to be completely accurate. I am 90% sure the birth year of my Grandparents on my father side is correct and the others should be accurate. My parents and grandparents passed away so there knowledge is lost. I found one Great Great Grandparent, but on the census Charles Young stated he is English and the census following he stipulated he is French. However, his daughter my Great Grandmother said he was French. This is a example of some accuracy issues. I went to the Ellis Island web site to track down my Grandparents leaving from Italy to Ellis Island with my family input this was relatively simple even though there was others with the same name on other ships during the same time period. So, in short please I need input how to find birth and marriage certificates. I am currently researching on a Genealogy web site but hit a wall. Not giving up though. Started this journey thinking I was American with Irish, Italian and English Heritage, now I found a Canadian Great Grandmother on my Irish father's side and possibly a Great Great Grandfather who is French on my English and Italian side mother's side. I look and was raised Italian, all of my findings are quite intriguing and enlightening. Please email with any viable suggestions via email at gbcu145@aol.com. Thank you

A love of a different kind

How can you love a person
who lived so long ago?
One you’ve never met before,
Someone you don’t know.

Back in Eighteen sixty-eight
Thomas Charles arrived.
First of six to come along
All of whom survived.

Sarah too was born that year
Fourth of five was she,
Sad to say in fourteen years
Five was down to three.

Then in eighteen ninety-three
Tom and she were wed,
There in a place called Henly
Wedding vows were said.

Life was hard in them there days
Thomas worked the land,
Sarah cooked the veg he grew
Children lent a hand.

Tom and Sarah had two sons,
Daughters, they had four.
All survived to be grown ups
But there were two more.

I do not know their names as yet,
Were they girls or boys?
All I know is that they died
Missing all life’s joys.

Forward now to ninety-six
Charles was their first son,
He served his King and country
Fought in World War one.

Then Charles, he married Lucy
Children, they had three,
My mum was the last to come
That then comes to me.

How can this poem fit the theme
‘Love is in the air’?
Each of these, my ancestors
Were unique and rare.

My love for them is diff’rent
Than my love for you,
Each one has shaped their children,
Taught them to be true.

Without each and ev’ry one
I would not exist.
Because of them, I am me,
Now you get my gist?

This was written for a competition with the subject - 'Love is in the air'.

I saw someone take old photographs and clean them off with lighter fluid and their finger so that they could scan the photos. It worked like a charm.

If you know where and when your parents died, you can usually request a copy of the death certificate from the state. Some states have a time limit—must be say 50 years ago—but as a descendant, you can usually get that waived. Certified copies can be expensive, but most states offer a "genealogy" copy which is not certified and can't be used for official purposes, but is reasonably priced. Check with the Department of Health for the state where they died. Then you can repeat the process for your grandparents.

Have you ever heard of a mug book? No, not the criminal ones, but the other kind - the biographical sketchbooks! You can use these biographies for further information and insight about your ancestors' lives.

Have you heard of a mug book? Not a book full of criminal mug shots, but a nickname for popular bio sketchbooks from the late 19th & early 20th centuries.

Devine family history : Ballymagorry, Tyrone - Campsie, Derry

The early accounts of this family history were written by Thomas Devine born in 1846, his son James brought it forward and then Thomas Edward Devine born NY brought it more forward.

This version of the family history has been put on the net by a man with the Devine surname (without the permission of this Devine family). I have a more modern version which names my immediate family.

If any of you are interested in the surname Devine from Tyrone, then it will make interesting reading. Historically it is interesting. It speaks of the family returning home on a holiday. It names so very many people from the area that the Devines were from.

My mother (Dr. Margaret Lyons (RIP)) died in 2009 and a yar or two before she died there was a Devine family re-union up in the Ballymagorry area which we went to. I photographed a large number of the people who had been at this re-union and I have images of these photos on from-ireland.
