228. [ROOTS-L] Norweigan ancestors [1]
My great grandparents Anna Ever son and Elias Paulson emigrated from Norway in 1881 when my grandmother was a toddler. I have been told that he was hired to accompany a group of emigrants here as he spoke English. He was supposed to have been a professor in Norway and apparently worked for the emigration office in Galveston after their arrival as he spoke several languages. Does anyone know why groups of people emigrated from Norway and how I might find out if this story is true. They went

Both of my parents "changed names" Mom from Ruby Maxine to Maxine R and dad from Ellsworth Charles to Charles E., Although Dad legally changed his name in the 30" when he joined the Army. I have not found proof of that but he did change it in 1943 thru the courts in Ohio. I also found out that my paternal grandfather was a name changer!!! He was born Charles Juengst but raised by a family named Wilson as their grandson. He thought his was a Wilson and his mother, who was a Wilson (no relation found to the

There is a Rootsweb list for memories like those being discussed here. It will be of interest to those who want to share and archive their recollections. That mailing list was specifically set up for the discussion and sharing of information regarding such lives and personal memories so that descendants could locate and learn more about the personal side of our lives besides names and dates. The list also provides a place to remember family members who are gone from our lives in hopes of keeping their memo

238. Re: [ROOTS-L] FW: Family Trees on line - An invasion of Privacy? [1]
OK, then, it looks like we all agree that true is better than false and documented is better than undocumented, but that something is better than nothing at all. As a matter of fact, I am wrestling with this exact issue right now. I have an ancestor who was documented as being at Jamestown, Virginia. However, there is no proof of who his father was, just family lore that he was an English soldier in the service of the Low Countries. Who knows if it is true or not, but it's someplace to start.

As far as Ancestry.com goes- I reall y think they are about to price themselves right out of the market- they take the free info donated by others and then charge for it- If more people would just share their info it might put a little hole on the charges some of these sites get away with- But from what I have been reading lately,it seems that sharing info is not welcome by many, I see it as -What good is the info we all collect if it is not shared,can't take it to the grave with us- Peggy

My dad was born in 1893. He didn't have a birth certificate, but I found a short notice in the small town newspaper, dated 3-4 days after he was born, telling about it. Later, I went to the county court house myself - not to State capital - and asked to see the original book on births of that time period. Luckily, it was still on the shelves. Luckier yet was the maiden name of my paternal grandmother was on the record .... something my dad had not known. I found she'd been adopted and the name da

Would like to extend an invitation to those in Rootsweb land who are considering cheekswab DNA testing! Familytreedna.com has a reasonably priced 35-marker test. The THREIN, TRINE, THRINE, DREIN, DRINE families of PA and MD seem to be interconnected and may have ties to THRON, THRONE, TRONE families in both states. The THRONE and TRONE families would like to see someone of the above lineages tested. There are records of THREIN in York Co., PA. such as the record below: 'The Earliest Lutheran Cemeteries

Robert: I believe you are both right and wrong here, and clarification would be good to prevent others from getting an incorrect impression. When you post a tree to RootsWeb you can always update or remove it. As far as I know, that has always been the case. Ancestry.com does, however, have access to that database and reserves the right to use it as they see fit. They did use the RootsWeb trees among others to build the computer-compiled OneWorldTree some years ago. For whatever reason, data in OneWorl
249. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family History [1]
Bob I have 10 copies of my family file on CDs that I backup when I make changes. My file at World Connect is an online backup for me. I am not a moron. But I am also insuring that I have it online so that others can contact me if they find a family connection. As for your website, well I don't know why you lost it but maybe you were not following the rules for what is allowed on Rootsweb web accounts. That is all pretty much out of our hands.
