- I need an obit lookup please, for Henrietta T. Parks born 12 Feb 1877 died
23 Mar 1970 in San Diego County California. She was born in Alabama. I am
being confused by another person named Nettie Parks born 2 Feb 1876 died Mar
1970 in La Mesa, San Diego.
The person I am actually looking for was born in Alabama in Feb 1876. Her
maiden name was Fortner. She moved to San Diego and lived with her son W.
Eugene Burns. She remarried after her husband died. She may have been married

- 54. [ROOTS-L] Way Back When 
- As we look back over the years we may come to realize that an event
long forgotten had consequences we didn't recognize when it happened.
Sometimes it's because we were young and inexperienced. Sometimes it's
because we didn't have the spiritual insight required at the time.
Looking back, Way Back When, into that part of our lives long passed,
can be both wholesome and wise. It can many times give us the insight
and purpose to be grateful for what was unnoticed when it occurred, an
event that was

- Joan, Carol and all,
A clarification and an apology. I responded without really looking at the
origin of the persons involved, and gave the "Mexican version."
After Joan responded with the opposite, I actually looked it up.
Seems the issue is country/region specific.

"At present in Spain, women upon marrying keep their two family names. In
certain rare situations, especially the nobility, she may be addressed as if
her maternal surname had been replaced with her husban

- I do have to agree the price is on the high side- but I guess like any product sold,they do have the right to charge what they feel is a good price- But what I would wonder is- what if the price was lower,maybe they would have twice as many people signing up-and still make good money,maybe- I also know the money they charge helps to cover the cost of indexing census records or at least buying the film,which at last I checked was at least 45.00 per roll - and I guess there is also formatting it for the net-

first and they wouldnt do it, but then I sent an email and they responded
the exact same way to me..
Do you love genealogy? Do you have a brick wall? Do you have info you
could share with others who might be researching your family...or are you
looking for others that might be researching the same? Join us on my

I did enumerations for the Census Bureau in 2000, and wanted to point
out that people aren't always honest in what they report. Soooo many
of the people I interviewed didn't want to participate, period, and
flatly refused, or either refused to answer selected questions or said
they didn't know the answers. Many others gave limited information,
and others, were not telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing
but the truth. There were many people who were adamant about not

In a message dated 1/25/2008 9:36:40 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
Have you tried http://maps.google.com/? They have included all sorts of
dinky German towns, and it is neat because you can really zoom in on the
the satellite photos- you can almost see the furrows plowed in the fields.
Have you tried German speaking mailing sites? I put one in ever so long ago
and immediately got an answer in English from a German pastor who wanted to
improve his colloqui

- 64. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family History 
Yes, I KNOW you have said before that OWT has nothing to do with your
problem BUT...it is the ONLY place at Ancestry that any data of yours could have
remained visible once you deleted your WorldConnect tree--your file itself
would have been instantly deleted when you removed it. There was never a change
of policy with regard to the database submitter being able to update or
delete his own tree.

Ancestry.com for a year,
they would have no choice but to lower their
subscription prices. They
have increased the subscription prices because
apparently they figure everyone will still renew.
I have to say I am disappointed to see this line about
Ancestry.com starting again. However, I could not
resist my personal views on the subject.
Yes, everything is rising in cost. I don't know of
anything that hasn't in the last couple of years.

I'm looking for a marriage of Thomas Crews/Cruse (of various spellings) in either Fayette or Jefferson county in Kentucky during the years 1780-1784. His wife could have had any of these maiden names: Anderson, Barton, Hayden (of various spellings). I'm sorry this is so vague. Thanks in advance! ~ Rita

- 68. Re: [ROOTS-L] 8. Occupation "Wood Turner" (Taylor, Daniel J.) 
A wood turner usually operated a lathe of some fashion to turn wood - to produce spindles, chair and table legs etc. In the early days, prior to machine-driven lathes, the turning was done on a hand-operated lathe. In the UK, one method of powering these lathes was to set up a tripod of timbers with a long springy pole, suck as willow, which extended beyond the tripod. Straps or a rope of sorts was attached to the end of the spring pole and wound around a spindle which drove the lathe, or was an ex

- There is a middle ground between 'name gatherers' and meticulous
genealogists. That would be me. I'm the last twig on the tree, so to speak. No relatives
to leave it to. I do it because I enjoy the detective work. I don't enter a
name into my tree until I'm convinced the info is correct. I don't bother with
collecting actual copies of documents. Just seeing one is enough for me...a
preponderance of the evidence.
