427. Re: [ROOTS-L] census at [1]
I'm not sure if I'm understanding the problem but what I'm seeing is the census for Mercer Co., PA. Peter and Catharine appear to be born in Weston Co., PA. and the rest Mercer Co. I don't know what the squiggle is between "Weston" and "Co." though.

428. Re: [ROOTS-L] documented information [1]
You know Kathy in the early 1900's a lot of people couldn't read or write. In fact when I was a kid in New York there was an old man that worked near our house that used to come to see my father every so often and my Father told me he was from Italy and couldn't read or write except for his name and he would get a letter from family and my Father would read it to him. My Father had lived in Italy during the war The man had ch
429. [ROOTS-L] The Christian Union [1]
Hello, Has anyone heard of "The Christian Union" newspaper? I have two, one is dated November 12, 1870 and the other is dated December 24, 1870. Both are just as white and readable as the newspaper I received this morning. I have tried researching online for this newspaper and have turned up nothing. Thank you, Kim Freeman

Otherwise, people may give you information that you already have and don't need. Drew Smith
432. Re: [ROOTS-L] wrong data [1]
I found mistakes in information given to me all the time and then I correct it and make my own mistakes. When a book is published it goes thru 3 people to just fix mistakes and still some escape. Documented material is just as flawed as stories passed in the family. I sent some of my family a copy of my tree killing off one distant cousin who didn't know he died. Thankfully every one in my family has a good sense of humor. I have one member of the family
433. Re: [ROOTS-L] faulty memories [1]
Exactly, so if information is never going to be verifiable, it's nice to know where it originated for that file. I also include multiple references when they exist. I have several versions of family trees that are all similar, but with dates off by one year, different name spellings, etc. I include them in notes with references to who's reporting what. One day, some of it will be cleared up, and it will be nice to have the notes. That way, if someone comes across the incorrect information, tho

435. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family History [1]
The following response to my message is simply wrong. Ancestry's own descriptions disprove those statements. Further, this person continues to extract one small piece of my message out of context and use that to repeatedly divert and distort the discussion in such a way that it diminishes relevancy to the original point. Further, my comments include citations and quotations with supporting information. Hers do not. To reiterate: you do NOT have "complete control" over your family tree data if Ancest

438. Re: [ROOTS-L] Changing given names [1]
Changing given names around used to be a much simpler thing than it is today. Until fairly recently, folks didn't use--or need--much in the way of formal "ID" and they sure didn't need to go to court to change a name; they just did it. Now we have all those pesky certificates to deal with--birth, marriage, death--not to mention SS numbers, driver's licenses and all the rest.

Linda: For newbies, I would add to your comment that they should source it as "Personal knowledge of " and then put their name so any others who obtain that database know whose personal knowledge the information came from.

441. Re: [ROOTS-L] Donahue from Kent and Cassnovia MI [1]
Well, Micki this does seem to be a good puzzle. I was able to find someone who could well be Benjamin Henry B:1892 in the 1920 Racine, Wisconsin census. It said his parents were both born in MI. I also found him in a 1930 census (did not record the location) but there he says the birthplaces of his parents were "unknown". If I get some additional time I will do some more digging but it probably will not be for a week or two. Best of luck, Vic Taylor -----Original Message----- From: roots-bounces@rootsw
442. [ROOTS-L] SOURCING: ANOTHER REASON - Networking [1]
I feel along with giving someone credit where credit is do sourcing the information I receive is a form of networking. Over the years other researchers have contacted me and I believe the sources that I provide has opened many discoveries for them. Facts are wonderful in filling in blanks in a database but I believe the true joy is hearing family stories. Even though some stories can never be substantiated they seem to always open a new direction for research.
443. [ROOTS-L] FYI - LDS Church President has died [1]
FYI - the president of the LDS Church, Gordon B. Hinckley, died tonight - he was 97 years old and served as church president since 1995 - and was very active in the acceleration of the genealogy work. The pace of genealogy will not change - but will continue on schedule. President Hinckley was a dynamic church president - with a personal touch that made him a favorite of young and old - like family. This was the time that the FHL developed and went live with the now familiar familysearch.orgsite - the

Looking for a county in Florida where a divorce took place in the early 1980's. Both parties are living so I'm not listing names. They were married in Louisiana in 1976. According to (don't know how I ended up there), the husband is the petitioner and wife is the respondent in the state of Florida. It says the file date and county is available with purchase, but are they reliable? According to Ancestry (I'm a subscriber), the wife married again in Bay County, Florida in February 1983. I wo

I recently re-installed Family Tree Maker 2006 and upgraded to version 16 again (I was trying to get GenSmarts, which my particular version didn't have). It now thinks I have the trail version even though I followed the instruction to solve this problem. Anybody have an ideas on a solution so I don't run out of usage of FTM?

Things I Remember I can remember in the late 1930s and the early 1940s how much fun it was for me to go with my father Jake Odle or his brother John Odle to fill up their cars with gasoline at the Sinclair Filling station. Mr. Sinclair would give them a red flying horse hood ornament. It wasnt long until most all of the few cars in the small town of Yukon, Oklahoma were sporting one of those fascinating hood ornaments. During those years following the great depression when childrens toys were s
450. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family History [1]
Robert- I've been paying attention but you are not listening to what we've all been telling you over and over again. There was no rules change after Ancestry "took over." What happened was that a new Search Engine/program was created called One World Tree which indexed and stitched matching entries in trees together--including trees submitted to WorldConnect. THIS was the place (and not on WorldConnect itself--whether before or after Ancestry's ownership of RootsWeb) where your data remain
