I knew I had an infection, but the dentist hadn't been able to get it under control so I just let the endodones handle it. She said the infection was such that the dentist wouldn't be able to deal with it. The endonontist ended up lancing a mass in my cheek, cleaning the puss out of the tooth and packing the tooth with antibiotics that drain slowly into my body. I go back in 2 weeks for her to clean the antibiotics out and put the normal filling in the roots.

What got me, is like always I told her that I was very sensitive to narcotics and OD easy. This normally gets me a child's dose, which works fine. She told me that they have found that 2 ibuprofen and a Tylenol taken at once works good for people that can't take narcotics. And i was to take them every 6 hours. She gave a prescription for Tylenol with a small dose of narcotics, but said she didn't think I would need to fill it.

I was just browsing around the forum and noticed STLOUISWOMAN mentioned DNA Detectives on FB. I'm on there too. Small world I guess. Is anyone here on GEDMatch? I'm A875299 if you are.

I think Genealogy in in my genes. So many of mom's cousins have taken the DNA test and I have gotten to know my cousins on my Dad's side when we discovered we were building the same tree. Our common Great grandmother had done a family tree and then destroyed it. We where trying to one rebuild the tree and two see if there was a copy somewhere of the old tree she hadn't destroyed.

It's really pretty exciting that so many cousins have taken the DNA test and that your mother can remember the stories from their childhoods. Just a thought (take it or leave it): write down (ok, key into the computer) all the stories you can get. They reflect a time of life that is probably long gone. Your children may not appreciate them now; that seems to come with age. If we don't get the stories when our parents are alive they (the stories) will be lost forever. If you can print them out (passwords disappear too) then they can be saved until they will be appreciated. Many of us wish we had stories such as yours and can never get them; you will be giving a great gift to future generations.

I've never really known what to do with my DNA matches, except call mom when it is one of her cousins and listen to all the stories about what they did growing up. Dad had little or no use for family, I saw my cousins maybe once. Mom grew up with her cousins, but after she married Daddy, never heard from them again, so me finding out about them, who they married, what they did for a living, how many children they had, is very exciting to her.

I appreciate the offer of help. I do not know what mirror trees are. However, I now have both sides of my genetic heritage. I am creating my trees on mother's side but letting my sister follow up on our father's side since she already has a major head start on that process. I am accumulating DNA matches from Ancestry but don't have a lot of time to work on it right now. I have some thoughts about how to take that information and work backward on it but will have to wait awhile to put it into practice. However, if someone already has a system for that process I'd be interested in hearing about it. I have been in contact with one DNA connection that matches up at about the 3rd or 4th cousin level. She lives about 900 miles from here but somehow that doesn't seem too far. We will start out with what we each have and see where it leads us.

Tired, but it is a good tired. I've been CLEANING. I'm determined to have the living room & hopefully, the bedroom cleaned completely before the new windows are installed. The fun part, is I don't know exactly when that will be. He is going to do it when the weather permits & he has a free day so I will have one day notice. The furniture in the living room is moved around & the wood floor is clean & shiny on one side of the room. Going to try to finish the other side of the room tomorrow, but I don't have the energy I used to have so it may take two more days. At least right now he can move the sofa & end tables from in front og the windows without getting attacked by dust bunnies.

Sandy- We are leaving on Friday, hopefully, to go to Ft. Worth from Minnesota. The weather looks like it will be icy in Kansas City area and Oklahoma so we will have to really watch the weather. I have Kansas City on a favorite on my weather. I get the Weather Channel and can set favorite places.

Thanks for the info.

Need to get packed. I will be back next week and will get back into Spark.

I took the Ancestry DNA test - caught it when they had one of their $20 off specials. I was adopted and had no info on my biological father. The first connection who popped up turned out to be my half sister and she has already done a lot of work on dad's family tree. So I found a whole slew of relatives. On the other hand, nobody close on my mother's side has turned up at all. It just depends on who else has already taken the test.

Know nothing about Family Tree maker....I love the FamilySearch.org because it is free.

Gal on FindAGrave I had been talking with sent me a link for Rachel Steely Yandell who had moved with a group to Oklahoma...but the Steely who stayed in Missouri didn't know where.

It was amazing to follow up and make connections...There was a picture of Rachel....and a man named after her brother, my Grandfather that we didn't know about!

And...I have sent and received a private email from a relative who may have more pictures.

Wow....oh, now back to real life. emoticon

I'm using family tree maker, or was. I never quite figured out the last up date and they have already told me that the next update won't work on my old PC. I use a mac most of the time now and family tree maker use to cost twice as much. I heard they are making them the same so will have to check it out.

I pulled out some papers yesterday and my daughter told her husband to study the page as it will be a test. This is on Titian Vecellio. We descend from his brother's line. He did not take a test. emoticon

Anyone using Family Tree Maker? I know they were changing but have not taken the time to check on it. emoticon

It has been so cold here with the below zero weather. Today it is snowing and watching the traffic now in Minneapolis/St. Paul is a nightmare. Glad I stayed home.

Take care.

The noisy fireworks started here about 6:00 p.m. and went until about 12:30. We are "in town" but in a small farming community so things are pretty open here too. We watched the Lincoln Center Concert and then the presentation of the Mark Twain Award to Carol Burnett which went until 12:30. It certainly made for a really pleasant evening and a great way to start the new year. Hope everyone else has a good year as well.

Happy New Year


The fire works started at 5P last night 1/4 a mile from our house and went on till 12:15. The early ones were just the noise makers, but I did go out on the porch at midnight and watched the pretty ones. I think there was a contest between one 1/4 mile to the left, one 3/4 mile in front and one 1/4 mile behind us. Made quite a light show. Mutt didn't get his evening walk, he hates firecrackers, and was ready to go at 5 this morning. We have a lot more freedom in the country, but then so does everyone else.

Sandy everyone else hair was wind blown too

Sandy, I'm sure no one worried about your hair except you. After all, anyone out at the store was dealing with that same wind. And most of us are so self-absorbed we don't notice those around us very much, except to try to avoid walking into them. And when all else, fails, it is good for all of us to learn to laugh at ourselves. Life is too short to sweat such trivialities. Best wishes for the new year.

I'm sure glad that today is ending th old year & not starting the new year. I went to Walmart to pick up a few things & to pick up two online orders. Just before I got out of the car, I discovered that I had lost my list somewhere. OK, I'd just have to do my best to remember what was on it. Then the rubber band that was holding my hair back broke & I only had one clip with me. I put what I could into the clip & the rest had to just stay loose. Except that the wind was blowing - hard - from my back. Could I really go into Walmart like this? Than I thought of some of the people I'd seem in there & in I went. There frozen chicken breasts were $3.00 higher than Aldis which was on the other side of the plaza. Did I really want to go into Aldis looking like this? No, but I also didn't want to have to make another trip for the chicken. I ran in, got my chicken & got in the checkout landm hoping I wouldn't see anyone I know. God smiled on me & I didn't see anyone I knew. Or maybe He was laughing at me?

Last night I found the grave and much information on 3 GreatsGrandfather's older sister. She had stayed back in Tenn when part of the family came to SW Missouri in 1850.
Seems she had a large family and lived until 1916. Nice to find!

to ASOBFALLS in particular ... although most of us have felt the addiction while staring at FindAGrave or Family Search and many other places. I understand where you are coming from. Just now I am searching in an area of Scotland for my father's ancestors and everthing (for me) is new, not old.

Hope everyone had a good holiday and are ready to start the new year off with a bang, and I don't mean those noisy things they are shooting off around here that scare the you know what out of the dogs. So they need to go for a walk, but then they can not only hear the noise makes but see them.

My understanding is that the LDS has made armament to share with ancestry. I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but I don't think you can use Ancestry, You just have access to their records.In other words when you are researching someone records from Ancestry will come up, but you won't save them on ancestry and things like Ancestry hints won't come up. I haven't gotten on family search lately so I can't be sure, but that is my understanding.

Today I upgraded for 6 months of Ancestry Worldwide. I hope I can find what I am looking for in England and France on my birth mother's grandmother's side, in England on my birth mother's paternal side, in Ireland on my adopted mother's side and in Germany/Austria on my adopted father's side. Lots to do next 6 months.

Hello MaryAnn sounds like a good plan....
Do my entries on Family Search go to Ancestory?? Family Search is the FREE sibling of Ancestry also run by LDS. Anyway, I am getting my stuff up there in the cloud.

Hello everyone ! I have been a member off and on
for quite awhile. I tend to overcommit and get behind.

I love find-a-grave and took picture for several years.
Mobility issues have kept me off doing it for a couple
of years now.

My goal for 2017 is to finally get my research online at

I have not been on for ages. I had heart surgery in June and just stopped Spark. Back again and hope to get more involved.

I am still working on my genealogy but need to get serious again.

If I do not get on again for a bit, have a Merry and Blessed Christmas or if another religion best to you.

ASOBFALLS,

I live near a small graveyard and was thinking about it the other day. No family of mine there.

Is your name Joyce?

..I've just discovered a fun thing!

I am working two sites: Find A Grave and Family Search.org
2 months ago visited a small rural cemetery where Uncle Floyd is buried...got picture of his headstone and then snapped about 10 random headstones just ?? because

So yesterday made a Memorial for Uncle Floyd and then checked out the other photos and 8 of them were useable...as in no Memorials or memorial with no photo.
Then I found a feature on Find A Grave where there are photo requests and more than a dozen requests are for the small cemetery in my town....So next warm weather I'll be walking the cemetery with my camera for my exercise!

Well, them. =/ We didn't get any snow sticking at my house. My ds and I are farther south than they are. Boooo. We want snow.

Mutt and I went for our morning walk an hour late this morning. It was 45 degrees, the stars were bright, and the owls hooting. We only went a mile and turned around. Old man has arthritis in his paw. On the way back the owls were still talking, the roosters were crowing and a beautiful Sunrise.

MaryAlice, I had something similar with lotions. I was getting scab like sores that looked like they could be skin cancer [two doctors said the same thing] so my doctor sent me to a dermatologist & it was something that many companies use in their lotions. He told me to only use Dove or Olay products. No more problems since I switched.

It sure would be easier for researchers if family plots were laid out that way. At least I think it would for me.
Except things might have become confusing during/after the Civil War when a lot of re-marriages took place within inlaws?

I'm so sorry to hear about the whole mouthwash ordeal. That is scary. We avoid mouthwash because of the added alcohol and brush our teeth with baking soda and whiten with hydrogen peroxide, (of course no swallowing). It sure sounds a lot safter than what's on the market though.

In case there is someone else out there that sensitive to chemicals.

A week ago I tried a different mouthwash. It burnt my tongue so I spit it out, rinsed my mouth out and went to bed. The next morning my whole mouth was blistered, but it was Sat. By Mon I was feeling better and decided to let it run it's corse. Last night my mouth was dry and my tongue felt thick and was yellow. This morning my teeth were stuck to lips and I had sores at the corner of my mouth from drooling but my mouth was still dry. I called the dentist. I was an emergency and needed to come right in.

I had a sever fungus infection of my mouth and throat caused by a sever chemical burn. They are putting something in mouthwash that is causing these burns in people sensitive to chemicals and she doesn't know what it is so can't tell me what to look out for. So NO mouthwash, rinse with salt water only, no additives. Find a simple toothpaste, no whiteners or anything like that and never change.

Coroners & medical examiners are involved in all deaths that are not natural & some that are. Examples include homicides; suicides; accidents; sudden deaths of people in good health; sudden infant deaths; adverse reactions to drugs/alcohol; employment related deaths; deaths during medical procedures; deaths in jails, hospitals or other public institutions; and deaths involving suspicious or unusual circumstances.

We went through five different reports. Some had next to no information & others had a lot of information. Some of the reord types that may be found in a coroners file include death certificates, coroner's inquests, police reports, apparent natural death reports, jury summaries, medico-legal recird, autopsy reports, pictures, witness statements & toxicology reports. These files were from St. Louis County. He did say that each county varies & each state also varies. St. Louis City is similar to St. Louis County, but not exactly the same.

We looked at five cases; (1) a natural death of a woman home alone at the time of death (2) a natural death of a woman who had friends & family around her at the time of death (3) an infant death (4) a one car accident death & (5) a homicide.

The coroner's file on the homicide was 45 pages long. Genealogical information found in the file included -
name of decedent
estimated date of death
cause of death
physical attributes
home address
occupation
work address
employment history for 5+ years
date of birth
name of ex-wife
number of children with ex-wife
agr of child with ex-wife
name of brother of ex-wife
approximate address of brother of ex-wife
name of current wife
date of marriage to current wife
number of children with current wife
name if step-father
occupation of step-father
address of employer of step-father
number of years employed
number of years married
name of mother
address of parents
occupation of mother
address of employer of mother
name of brother
age of brother
address of brother
name of coroner
name of pathologist/physician
names of officers/troopers
names of jurors
funeral home where autopsy was performed

a highway patrol report in the file added -
name of ex-wife's daughter
name of mother of ex=wife
address of mother of ex-wife
employer of ex-wife & her mother
exact address for brother of e-wife

A St. Louis County Police report in the file added -
extimated year of divorce from first wife
second place of employment for the ex=wife
city where the deceased married his current wife
employer of the brother of ex-wife, along with the adddress
decedent's exact dates of employment with most recent company

Have to check into them. I did use one once. Mom's sister died at home in FL. Least that is what everyone told me. Then Ancestry came up with something. same name same date of death that said she died in Ill. Well her children lived there so it was possible she went to be with them, she did know she didn't have much time. The corners report says FL.

Daddy bought a farm and it was on the edge of the valley where the Amish lived, In fact it had been made by the Amish without electricity. There where places along the back was there there were shelfs built in because they couldn't cut the rock.

I knew a woman in church who's daughters were Charity and I think the youngest was Hope, but I don't remember.

Growing up I knew a woman and her sisters were all named months or seasons: june, april, summer, autumn, etc.

How did you come to live with Amish?

Legally my name is Mary Alice but my family refuses to spell it that way. Growing up there was always a big discussion over weather my name was Maryalice or MaryAlice. When I was old enough to make my own decision I chose MaryAlice.

Growing up we lived near a Catholic family that had 5 girls, all of them were Mary with a different middle name.

I think the best one was when I lived with the Amish. One of the families named their girls, Faith, Hope Jenifer and Charity. Daddy said he didn't think that was the way it goes. They told him her name is Love, but they call her Jenifer. The first 4 Boys in most families are Mathew, Mark Luke and John the rest of the boys and the girls have names out of the bible. Except one family. I have no idea where they got Joy Blossom. Yes she went by both names.

Yes WESTERNSAGE, I recall your post, but didn't remember your SP name at the time.

MARYALICE411, Yes, that was the organization I was referring to. I had a friend who became Mormon through her marriage and I do believe it to be a cult. It's in the past tense, because she became offended I deleted her from FB, even though I explained to her I deleted my FB page.

Anyway, my mom told me that my bio dad's family all the girls were named Mary with different middle names. And his mom's name was Mary Alice. emoticon

If you went to the Church of Latter-day Saints. I gave up on them. They believe a person . no matter how good can't get to heaven till he has been baptized in the flesh, so people get baptized for their relatives. Well once the church has excepted a line, they don't want to change it. I understand they are working a little harder at getting things right now, but the past is set.

As noted earlier, I did the Ancestry DNA test and found my who father's side of the family. I had been adopted at birth and didn't even know who he was. Reunion has gone reasonably well but it's a good reminder to be prepared for the unexpected.

It's been approx 13 years since I've been deep in genealogy. I miss it. In those years I've been gathering small amounts of information, not sure what is relevant until I pull it all out again and get my laptop updated with what I have.

I pulled out my gr. grandfather's biographical book and started reading it the other day. It's so strange to think it was written and printed in the Edwardian Era. He included very little genealogy as he claimed it wasn't that important. sigh. He just hinted at a few distant relatives but no lines connecting. It's a little frustrating. What's more so is his blasted grandfather whom I joke ran for the hills when he heard of a census taker in the area. It's also not helpful that his name is too popular.

There have been other genealogists who have claimed to connected him to a Walter or William? Powers in Mass in the 1600's.

I've been referred to the Utah genealogy people, but they have my family information wrong and refuse to correct it. So I don't trust their information at all.

I'm interested in doing a DNA test one day. I think that would be interesting. Has anyone else done this?

Both sides of my family originated in early Virginia. My mom's side in 1607 Jamestown & my dad's side in 1615 Isle of Wight.

I know what you mean about the spelling. I don't think many names were spelled the same all the time.

I had family there in the early 1600's. Well part of my family will tell you I had 2 ancestors there. I have one line of Dickerson and another line of Dickinson. They say they are separate and you better not get then mixed up. When I did the family tree they both go back to Robert born in 1606 in Roanoke. The History of Early families of Virginia has his name spelt both ways. I just can't make my family believe that.

Carl Olson is my mothers grandfather. Mom knew her cousins growing up, played with them and many times couldn't remember their real name just the nick name they went by, but Daddy had little or no use for family and she lost touch with them. When I was starting out I had asked her about her family and learned which cousin like to play tricks, which one was a reader, that kind of thing, but nothing that helped my family research.

I called mom any way and told here what I knew and how I found out. She is full of info. She told me her oldest cousin was named Clair and she married a Vent so the person might be using the last name. She was right, it took me less then 10 mins to find them, not spelled quite the same. Mom was so happy after 50 years she knew something about one of her cousins. She made me promise to try and find the rest.

I do some transcribing for the Missouri Archives & that one of my greatest fears is that I'll really butcher someone name & hinder someone else's search. Most of them can be read, but occasionally you get one that just can't be made out.

Talking about making a mess of names. Mom's grandfather is Carl Olson. I couldn't find anything. Nothing nona, zilch. From a DNA match someone sent me a picture I have of Carl Olson, and said it was their grannies father and his name was Carl Albert Olson. I researched that and came up with a Carl Albert Anderson Jackson Olson born the same day same place That lead me to his Swedish birth certificate, On it, it says Carl Albert Andreas Johannisdotter Olsson. A friend that reads Swedish says this is a real problem for people because under the names it says Andreas is the fathers first name and Johannisdotter is the mothers maiden name and people are trying to make it all one name.

Ancestry has added A bunch of family history. Most are just very interesting and confirm what I already know. I had one that it helped in more ways. I kept thinking the mans and his wife's genealogy had gotten mixed together. He married his step sister.

Yes, I just was trying the hints. I also look at the other folks on ancestry to see if the have any records to prove what they have. The ones I looked at last night their only source documents where other trees. I have done the regular search, but do need to do it again since they are always adding new things.

As for finding things, this didn't help me as far as adding on to a line, but was interesting. Someone contacted me and asked about my Hurley line. A big stumbling block. After he was sure we were talking about the same Hurley, he told me that he found a letter that his ancestor from Ireland had gone to Galveston to visit a relative that was chief of police had written. It was written a generation after my ancestor left the mayors office. He said 4 of the 5 deputies on the force were Hurley. Since my ancestor had had 11 children and his brother 12, I bet by then the island was overrun with Hurleys.

MaryAlice, did you do a regular search on Ancestry for them? Everything doesn't show up in the hints. You might also try googling them. I've found a lot that way.

I just checked one of the hints. It was Ancestry Trees. Since they are known, at least to me to be shot full of errors, I don't normally even look at them. This time all I knew was the fathers name and his son's name and date of birth so thought I would look and see if there was anything I could use as a lead.

There where 10 people that had this man in their tree. They had him in 5 different states and I don't think any two of them had the same date of birth. 8 had the son I had and 2 had a different child. Just a guess here, but I think his name and the name of the son is still all I know. I will check and see if any of the other trees have any backup that might make them more credible.

Yeah & don't forget the siblings that also name their children after dad. For instance John Curd may have three sons & two daughters. They all name a son John. Don't have to consider the daughter's sons because they have a different last name. but instead of one more John Curd in this generation, there are three of them. Then each of them has a son they name John.
