My genealogical research, focused on the Leaves & Branches of my family tree, primarily in Southwestern Ohio. I am searching for the family history of the Ballein, Davis, Donaldson, Dudley, Wardlow, Ogden, Lamb, and Shaper families and more.

misadventures of a genealogist

Misadventures of a Genealogist

Blog type: Individual family history

I love genealogy! It is my 2nd biggest passion, the first being my family of course. So why blogging? Well, I can only talk so much genea-speak with my husband, family and non-genie friends. They vaguely understand the thrill of a find or frustrations of an elusive ancestor. They most certainly do not understand the lingo; primary/secondary sources, direct/indirect evidence, or citations. So here I am.

My current obsession are the Gunters. Richard William GUNTER who was born abt. 1828 in North Carolina, and died 1903 in Santa Barbara, California was my ggg grandfather. I have been after the identity of his parents for… well, a while. Some days I can think of little else. It’s an obsession only a fellow genealogist can appreciate and perhaps sympathize with. We’ve all been there and maybe, like me, still are. I don’t call it a brick wall. The information is out there, I just haven’t stumbled upon it yet.

Sleeping Gardens

Blog type: Cemetery blog, UK genealogy

Currently living in the Middle World, United Kingdom.  An interested and inquisitive visitor, softly stepping amongst the stones, sharing a smile with some and silently shedding a tear or two as I also walk the long road home.

Blog type: Individual family history

I started doing genealogy research about ten years ago and I’ve been like a girl on crack with it. I’ve been up until 2am researching an elusive family member for two weeks only to find another family member within about fifteen minutes. Sometimes it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes it’s strategic. It’s always been fun. I’ve run across cousins from all over the United States who were always friendly and helpful and glad to run into another cousin doing family research.

Now that I have a small break from school before the summer session starts, I’m back in the saddle again searching for relatives. I don’t think I’ll use a separate blog for genealogy research – I just don’t want to have to fool with the upkeep of a second blog so I’ll take advantage of the Blogger Labels option. Over to the right, there is a neat little collage of Labels. I’ll always label my genealogy research with the genealogy label. I’ll include last names when I’m writing about them.
