taras family history

Tara’s Family Mystery
http://familymystery.wordpress.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

I started tracing my family history about 12 years ago. I have always loved research, and have always wanted to know where I came from. I have always enjoyed a very close relationship with my maternal grandparents, so one day I started asking questions. And out came the old photo albums, the family stories, and even some family secrets. The more I learn, the more curious I am to fill in the blanks. And to connect with realtives that may be out there somewhere.

To begin with, the two main lines I am researching are Loundree and Greybill, my father and mother’s lines, respectively. As I can make time, I will post all I know on these and other lines I am researching.

the mad genealogist

The Mad Genealogist
http://www.themadgenealogist.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

Welcome to my new genealogy blog, TheMadGenealogist.com

As this is the first post, I thought I would just write a quick preview of what this genealogy blog will be about.

The MadGenealogist will not just be a personal genealogy blog where I write about my own family ancestry. While this blog will contain posts on my own family search, it will also be about the journey, looking at how I went about tracing my family tree.

Starting out trying to trace your family tree can sometimes be a daunting task, so we will also cover genealogy info and tips, family search websites and family tree software. Basically, anything to do with genealogy.

twigs to roots

Twigs To Roots
http://twigstoroots.wordpress.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

Although I’ve been researching family ancestry for some time, long before the web existed, I’ve only just plucked up the courage to start blogging. Technology is fantastic!

In England, the counties I am primarily researching are Kent, Sussex and Middlesex. My immediate Paternal branch was part of the British Raj for a couple of generations, settling in areas that became part of Pakistan upon Independence. Originally hailing from Middlesex myself, I am presently located in Cambridgeshire. I am married with two adult children and one young lively Border Collie that I am training in sheepwork, hopefully to trial. My hobbies, besides genealogy and dogs, include scrapbooking, cooking, reading and history.

Vintage Vines

Blog type: Individual family history

Welcome to my Vine Family…

William Vine and his wife Mary Ann Gould traveled from Norfolk, East Anglia, England sometime around 1837 with all ten of their children and settled in the small village of Alden, NY in Erie County, near Buffalo, NY. A couple of the children crossed the border and settled in Ontario, Canada. Some stayed close to their parents while others moved on to Nebraska, Iowa and California. Some of them had very large families, like their son James (who I am descended from) who had fifteen children. Keeping track of these huge families has proven to be a monumental task.

William and Mary Ann’s descendents are now scattered throughout Canada and the United States. Hopefully, I will meet a few of them and learn more as I document their travels.
