American Ancestors: The Osgood Family
Blog type: Individual family history

Although I’ve been researching my family history for over two years now, I have never kept track of this amazing journey. I hope to use this blog as a way to learn, share, and reflect upon my discoveries. My first task is to document the genealogical trip I have taken over the course of the past couple of years so I can keep this journey fresh in my mind. As my journey progresses, I hope this blog will ultimately serve as a travel log/journal of sorts to refer back to at times. I hope if you are viewing this blog you too will leave with information you may find helpful or interesting pertaining to the Osgood family.

Catholic Family History
Blog type: UK genealogy

I’ve started this blog to share hints and tips on researching Catholic ancestors in England and Wales. As a member of the Catholic Family History Society, many of the requests for help and information come to me. Of course, I can’t answer everything myself and the hard questions I pass on to our very knowledgeable members. Publishing these requests and our answers (suitably anonymised) should be a good way make to this information available to a wider audience.

Chicago Genealogical Society
Blog type: Genealogy society blog, Illinois genealogy

The Chicago Genealogical Society was begun in 1967 as a not-for-profit educational organization devoted to collecting, preserving and perpetuating the records of our ancestors, and to stimulate an interest in all people who contributed in any way to the establishment of Chicago and its surrounding area.

D. Taylor’s Genealogy
Blog type: Individual family history

A Blog/Log of some of my findings in my search of several trees. Brown, Darling, Howell, and an unknown Roberts line.

Family History Sleuthing
Blog type: Individual family history

Although I have been on the net for years and years (since 1986), I’ve never had a blog. “What’s all the fuss about?”, I used to think. However, I’ve recently wanted to share some of my discoveries with family and friends, as well as to share some of the methods I’ve used with others. Facebook posts worked for a while, but it’s not easy to include multiple photographs in a post, something that I’d like to be able to do. So here we are – my first blog post. Wish me luck.

Generations Remembered
Blog type: Pennsylvania genealogy, Professional genealogist blog

I have been researching my family lines since 1975, mostly in Central Pennsylvania.  My family lines stretch back to 1635 when William Beardsley arrived in Massachusetts and 1682, with the Shoemaker’s arrival in Philadelphia. The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania recently awarded me First Family of Pennsylvania, Colony and Commonwealth membership.  I have successfully completed 27 applications or supplements for the Daughters of the American Revolution, Sons of the American Revolution, Sons of the Revolution and Children of the American Revolution.

I am available for consultation of your research in these lineage societies and other research in Pennsylvania.  If you would need a record in a Central Pennsylvania repository, I will travel to many local sights.  I also will photograph gravestones, buildings, etc.

I have researched records in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Canada; however concentrate research for others in Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania.  Surnames: Avery, Bell,  Beardsley, Brown, Buckwalter, Bunyan, Charles, Duart,  Eby, Fry, Hess, Hershey, Lancaster, Lang, Leaman, Long, McCarty, Morse, Neff, Packard, Pepper, Phenneger, Place, Shafer, Shoemaker, Stone, White, Winans.

Saving Memories Forever
Blog type: Genealogy vendor blog

Sumner County Kansas History & Genealogy
Blog type: Genealogy society blog, Kansas genealogy

Sharing the latest from the Sumner County (Kansas) Historical and Genealogical Society.

Under Every Stone
Blog type: Cemetery blog

As I say in my Find a Grave profile, “There is a story under every stone”.  In the process of photographing graves for Find A Grave or genealogy research, I have come across many interesting stories about the people buried under those tombstones.  In this blog I will share some of the most interesting of these stories with you.  Why?  So these people will not be forgotten.
