A Root Digger

Blog type: German genealogy, Individual family history

As a young bookworm, day dreaming child, I always wondered about the cousins that I thought I must have in Germany. I was able to start Genealogy with computer around 2001, I still have limited knowledge in computer technology, grammer, spelling, and in the genealogy techniques. I make up for my limits by my persistence in wanting to share all I can. Also by my persistence in my search. I have discovered the family members of the ‘Meyer Book’. I am still hoping to meet so many more of this vast family. I started this blog to serve the need I have to talk about my details of genealogy [journal] of all my surnames. Especially the locations of family settlements. Your warned, that there will be discussions of the details of the problem situations with the surnames I have had, etc. I am known to talk and talk about it until my family and friends eyes glaze over. I guess this blog may help save them from too much of that. I hope family will join in help problem solve and share more of the various family stories and insights and ideas. Non family as well. I have put the information out there and now I am waiting for family to come.

Cambria County

CAMBRIA CO – My Family of Bracken, Singer & Gabriel
http://mycambriacoconnection.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history, Pennsylvania genealogy

Information on the Bracken, Singer and Gabriel families from Cambria County, PA and the area around there.
So if you get snowed in and you’re planning your dear Grandmother’s funeral, which of course was cancelled for the snow, you start gathering all of those pages, slips of paper, copies, pictures and disks that you’ve stored in many locations in the house even though you swore you were going to put them all in one nice tidy filing cabinet that you bought for such purpose. Yeah, well, when I re-find all of that, I’ll get right on that.

Carcar Families

Carcar Families: A Genealogy Blog For Carcar
http://carcarfamilies.wordpress.com/
Blog type: Individual family history, Philippines genealogy

As I take down notes from old Carcar records with the goal to outline the genealogy of as many Carcar families as I can, I shall be thinking aloud…
And consequently, as my education on the history of the town, which one can read from between the lines on the pages of those books, continues, I can only hope my blog will have been jampacked with facts, ideas, doubts, questions, choler and hosannas worthy of what has been my privilege to experience. Attitude with an edge–two negatives which multiplied, like mathematics, will hopefully produce a positive.

I was sent off on the genealogy path by getting earnest answers from historian Mike Cullinane to the inanest questions I asked him about my own families’ histories. About Carcar, Claveria, Cebu City–Cullinane gave me my first real history lessons. The product of my research is his for the asking.

Ian Hadden's Family History

Ian Hadden’s Family History
http://ianhaddenfamilyhistory.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Canadian genealogy, Individual family history

It’s been said that you must know where you have been to know where you are going. My family history is a mosaic of people and families, influenced by the events and environment of their times, that provides a start to the telling of what my family is today. I’m still working on finding the beginning – a quest that I hope to share with you through this blog.

The history of my family has always fascinated me – what was true, what was to be polite ‘embellished’, and how did our various relationships as well as those of ancestors contribute to the family we belong to today? What are the blends of primarily Scottish, Irish, and German roots – Haddens, Littles, Gaulls, Foleys, O’Neills, Wagners, Latimers, Kimmerlys, Fitzgeralds and McRaes to name a few – that converged to become our ‘modern’ Canadian family?

My goal is to use this space to regularly share stories from our family history, including a few of the ‘skeletons in the closet’, and to report on what is new in genealogy and the family history quest. I welcome your ideas, contributions and most assuredly your corrections to any facts as I may know them.

La Mia Famiglia

La Mia Famiglia
http://carmeloorlando.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history, Italian genealogy

I started my research on my grandfather, Carmelo Orlando, in 2007. I was able to track down a Carmelo Orlando who came from Curinga, Calabria, Italy in 1909. I am sure this man was my grandfather. I don’t have the detailed notes from my research on http://www.ellisisland.org/, but I researched all the Carmelo Orlandos who came up in my search from 1850 to the time my grandfather got married in Wilke-Barre, PA in 1921. I eliminated all Carmelos who were not from Calabria, since my mom had told me he was Calabrian, and then I started to look at the dates of arrival and birth dates for the few Carmelos that I had left on the list. There was one Carmelo listed arriving in 1909 and he was from Curinga, Calabria, Italy.

Our Family Tree Bears Fruit

Our Family Tree Bears Fruit
http://fitzmarvelous.posterous.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

This blog details my family history research, both methodology and chaos systems. I’ve been researching both my family and my husband’s family for about 5 years. History, both American and European History, has always been a passion of mine. Really, many American genealogies reflect the consequences of what was happening in the world at large at the time. These are some of those stories. My mantra? Honor your ancestors, ’cause you never know when you will be one.

The Scottish Genealogist

Scottish Genealogist
http://www.scottishgenealogist.co.uk/blog/
Blog type: Scottish genealogy

I live near Edinburgh in Scotland and work as a professional genealogist. I love my work and consider myself very fortunate to have a job which is so interesting and varied. Most of my work is carried out at New Register House (home of Births/Deaths/Marriages, Old Parish Registers, Census Returns and more) and National Archives of Scotland – thankfully they are next door to each other! I also regularly visit National Libraries of Scotland and the Scottish Genealogy Society. I make occasional trips to the A K Bell Library in Perth and St Andrews University, and I love to wander through cemeteries whenever the opportunity arises!

Sharing Our Family Memories

Sharing Our Families Memories
http://picturethisaustin.wordpress.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

I LOVE hearing the family story. It’s perfect when they are accompanied with the heirloom photo. I also love putting this together for other people.

I have a plethora of outrageous family stories. They are begging to be told. So I started this blog.

I own Picture This! in Austin, Texas. I archive your family memories – both photo and video. There is nothing more precious to family members than passing these treasures along.

Blog type: Individual family history

I guess I really need to get going in blogging. I will pick up on the blogging prompts later, but I guess the first thing to report in my genealogy blog is to list at least some surnames, individuals, and the areas I am currently researching so people can find me! I hope to post pages with biographies of several of them, my tree and current research finds, so here goes in no particular order….

Surnames include Burton, Mix, Fairchild, Miller, Edwards, Petty, Hoyt, Wadsworth and Robinson.
