ancestral paths

Ancestral Paths of my Guthrie, McCoy, Misson & Showalter Families
Blog type: Individual family history

Family research started out as a hobby over 30 years ago and has now become a passion of mine! I’m sure, some of my family feels it is an obsession and they may be right! Over the years I have become the historian for my family, collecting and compiling the history, records and occassional photos.

I have met a lot of really nice people, new relatives and many new friends! I am eternally thankful to all of them, for without their contributions, my database would not be what it is.

I’m a 60+ lady married to a wonderful guy. Our home is in a small community nestled in the rolling hills of southern Iowa, just north of the Missouri border. We share our home with Bear, our dog and Lil Bit, our cat.

I have two wonderful grown children that have blessed me with 3 fantastic grandchildren. I work part time as an accountant to support my research obsession!

I enjoy reading anything by James Rollins and Kay Hooper. My other interests include gardening, mosiacs, and quilting. I like most any kind of detail oriented crafts.

brooks and williams families

Brooks and Williams Families of North Carolina
Blog type: Individual family history, North Carolina genealogy

Welcome to the Brooks and Williams of Caswell County, North Carolina Genealogy Blog by Ginger R. Smith.

I have been researching my family history for about 5 years now. This blog was started April 14, 2007. The purpose of this blog is to provide information on my Brooks and Williams families and related lines of Caswell, Orange, and Granville Counties, North Carolina. It started out as a research journal that I used to track my research projects, but has quickly grown into a repository of original document scans and transcripts I have retrieved from the North Carolina State Archives and shared with my readers.

Blog type: Individual family history

“Howdy folks“, to quote grandma Painter. For those of you not related to me, I am Lizaand the keeper of all things family history for both sides of my family– my mom’s (Deacon and Akeson, Hansom, McRandal, McKinstry) and dad’s (Painter, Thompson, Smith, Acheson, Bruce, Williamson).

I have been “doing” genealogy since I was about 10 years old, and even before as I listened to Nana’s stories of the “old country” (the North of Ireland, now known as Northern Ireland). That makes it about 30 years that I have been researching, on and off. You’d think I would’ve gotten back to the beginning by now! lol. I love the research, sorting out the names and dates, fleshing out the skeletons and hunting down the missing. Yes, even banging my head repeatedly on brick walls has become enjoyable in its own way. I guess you could say I’m hooked.

With this blog, I hope to share some of my triumphs and discoveries, as well as the frustrations and difficulties. Let’s see where this might take us . . .

The focus of my blog is all about the Lefebvre and the Lefebvre dit Lacroix family tree. I also talk about tips and hints when it comes to finding your ancestors.

graveyards of illinois

Graveyards of Illinois
Blog type: Cemetery blogs, Illinois genealogy, Midwest genealogy

I originally came from Millstadt, Illinois, a small town near St. Louis, which had three small graveyards (that I knew of). On the north side of town was Mount Evergreen, a 20th-century cemetery, mostly with newer monuments. I found the old “village cemetery” on the south side to be much more interesting – old stones going back to the 1830s, an ivy-covered fence, one angel, and plenty of inscriptions in German. And several miles north there was St. James Catholic Cemetery, situated on a hillside overlooking the highway to St. Louis. I came here occasionally for funerals, but never did find the time to explore it and enjoy the somber atmosphere.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
