Wedding Bells

Sorry that I haven't been updating this site. It's been an extremely busy month and I haven't had much time to do much else. I don't think that I mentioned it yet, but I'll be getting married on May 27th. So, everything these last few weeks has been about that. That also means that I'll probably be … [Read more...]

Headstone Search

Well, no luck on the headstones I was looking for. We first looked at the cemetery in the old Dheinsville, Wisconsin near Germantown. I have an ancestor that's listed as in this cemetery. Unfortunately, all of stones from that time period are beyond readable, some don't even exist anymore. So, I … [Read more...]

Springtime

Well, it's springtime (though snow is on the ground as I type) and it looks like its time to get some of those headstone photos that are needed. I have noted a bunch of them in the local area that I can hunt down. There are some farther away, such as in the northern tip of Wisconsin, but those can … [Read more...]

East Coast Researchers

I imported my complete family tree file yesterday. Be aware that I probably don't have information on anyone in the tree that is not a direct ancestor. Everything I have is on the site, so if you email me about them, don't expect much more information. Thanks. … [Read more...]

The French Connection

I broke through another brick wall last night with some research. This one is probably more sure than the last one, I give this one an high 80%-90% chance of being correct. I decided to do some more research on a line that I had inserted into my tree in the beginning of my family tree stuff, though … [Read more...]

A little history

I'm not sure when it happened, sometime between college and now. Throughout school, from elementary through college, I really didn't like history. I'd shuffle through it, learning enough to get by, but it really didn't do anything for me. Even in college, when I needed to take US History or Western … [Read more...]

Wiki?

I setup a wiki-based area of my genealogy site that I can use to store all of the miscellaneous information from my tree. Tidbits, letters, information, etc. The first thing I posted is a letter that my great-great uncle, Edwin Corrigan, had wrote to some other family members. Sadly, Edwin died just … [Read more...]
