Thanks, Sandy. That last one tells a lot. When I found the Skidmore information I stayed up all night copying info.

How many of you have sat down to do a quick look-up on an ancestor…..and dinner was suddenly cereal again? (Ahem.)

Researching your ancestors is exciting, fascinating, overwhelming and time-consuming. Most of us don’t have 2-3 hours a day to research. We do need to sleep sometime.

Are you recognizing everything your ancestor’s family cemetery is telling you?

Are you missing clues to your research questions? Do you leave the cemetery with answers or clues to the next step in your research?

Because of a post on Facebook I found some sites that have Ellis Island arrivals and other arrivals in America. I still couldn't find my ancestors, though. I started out by looking up "Ellis Island" and it had different 3rd words to choose from. Then got other arrival sites.

That does add to the challenge. The birth date on my maternal grandfather's gravestone is two years off. I've found many more errors also.

I am amazed at how many different ways family names are spelled. I have also found headstones that have incorrect information. It is all part of trying to put the puzzle pieces together.

I have problems when first and last names match more than one person and you really don't know any more information. When I was on ancestry.com I found that my cousins had researched back to my great grandparents. Even the children had the same names as my grandfather and his siblings that I knew of. The other day I went on Family Search and found the same names (Henry and Margaretha Pfeifer) with her maiden name different. It had been taken from my grandparent's marriage certificate. Of course, they all lived in the same area of Illinois, too. I can't find anything with pictures for that. The other couple (or last name, anyway) was on census forms that had pictures of those. I have also tried to figure out naturalization information and Civil War information. Both have 2 Henry Pfeifers listed and looking at the pictures of the certificates or whatever, there is no information to tell them apart. Nothing found on my grandfather at all.

The Challenge of First Names

First names are always a challenge for genealogists. In historic records, people would often misspell first names and sometimes they even used nicknames. First names were also commonly abbreviated to save room when space was tight on a page.

How to View Thousands of Free Records on Ancestry Without a Subscription

When most of us think of Ancestry.com, we think of paid resources. And, of course, the vast majority of Ancestry’s billions of records are behind a pay wall. However, you might be surprised to hear that the site does off a relatively large assortment of completely free collections–and they are 100% searchable.

Absolutely Free Genealogy Research Sites for Every Single U.S. State

Digital documents form the backbone of modern genealogy research. Whether it’s shared family trees, scanned photos, or official documents, there is always new data to be explored.

The hardest part remains, however, in finding free resources. Luckily, many U.S. states have put a good deal of effort into making their records freely accessible online, and some of the best no-cost resources can now be found through state and local agencies. Taking advantage of these wonderful resources can dramatically increase the likelihood of discovering key information about your ancestors.

The Important National Death Registers That Many Family Historians Miss

Are you in search of a date or place of death for a certain member of your family tree, but keep coming up empty-handed? If the individual passed away in the mid to late 1800s, U.S. Mortality Schedules – conducted in connection with the federal census – may be the key to finding the missing piece of your puzzle.

The Difference Between Wills and Probate Documents

When you are doing genealogy, you will most likely eventually go into court records and look for the wills of your ancestors. Wills can have a huge amount of previously unknown genealogical information in them. You can confirm relationships with them, learn new relationships, and get an idea of the lifestyle of your ancestor by looking at the money they’re giving away and the belongings they are assigning to various relatives. People have been making wills for centuries, so it’s not a new thing.

While there is not always a will in the probate documents, this does not mean there isn’t a lot of good information on your ancestors in those documents.

Genealogy Tip of the Day with Michael John Neill

Google Books For Everyone Every So Often

Periodically search GoogleBooks for all your ancestors. If my British convict ancestor from 1764 can appear in a book discussing the penal system in 18th century England, then there’s a chance that others will as well as the site includes digital images of a variety of items, including county histories, regional directories, occupational directories, occupational publications, religious periodicals, etc. GoogleBooks does periodically update so consider adding it to your list of materials to take an occasional look at.

emoticon Sandy. For what? Introducing me to tipofday and where I travel from there. I am trying to create a book based on my father/mother's relatives (mostly British), at the same time, checking these people out (that's where learning about their home world comes in). Everybody has their own boat and each is the captain. Thank you again. Keep searching!

Michael John Neill's Tip of the day is something we tend to forget about. Thought it was worth the reminder. His 'Tip of the Day' daily mailing is free if you sign up.

genealogytipoftheday.com/

Do you devote some of your “genealogy time” to learning while you are not actively researching? While we all learn as we research it is understandably easy to let the research distract us. Are you devoting some of your research time to:

learning about “new to you” sources
learning about “new to you” methods
learning about “new to you” technologies
learning about the history, culture, and geography of where your ancestor lived
Regularly learning something new generally will help your research.

No, You DON’T Need a Paid Subscription to Do Genealogy Research: Here’s Why

If you have been doing family history research for a while, you are probably fully aware of the fact that there are many free genealogy sites available to you. But for those that are just starting out, it can be very hard to see past the well-promoted paid subscription sites and many people become frustrated when trying to locate records and resources that are actually free.

While paid genealogy websites do offer many excellent resources for family historians, and sometimes provide records that you will have a hard time finding elsewhere, you do not need one of these subscriptions to build a family tree. In fact, restricting yourself to paid sites means that you will miss a huge number of records available elsewhere. So whether you are having a hard time affording a paid option, or are simply looking to expand your research in new directions, the following resources will help you explore your family’s history at no cost to you.

Audrey, that is a little similar to my g-grandfather, except the family he was living with according to one census, doesn't even look related. At least, we think that is my g-grandfather. His name was Matthias, but he went by Matt. In the one census it was when he was 9 or 10 and lived with a family in Missouri that had a completely different name. It said he was born in Germany and attending school. Another said he was born in Missouri. Where I said he could have been born in Oklahoma was from a distant relative who has done a lot of research and had contact with my great aunt (more than I did, I think). He was buried in Oklahoma, but nothing said where he was born.

ATTWOOD3 are you trying to connect with family members or are you just trying to fill in your tree correctly? That will make a big difference in how you approach it.

emoticon Well ... my granma and family (brother and eventual mother) sailed from England to Canada. emoticon leaving behind an oldest child. Why???? Not only that, it belonged to granma (I think) and a first husband and so did boy who came to Canada. In short my uncle was my step-uncle and nobody told anybody. He was on the census, but that doesn't necesarily make him her child either. Who do I ask? Everybody is dead that were involved. My granma visited England shortly before his wedding, but was it to attend? I was not there. All people are human; all individuals have stories that are not necessarily written down. Not exactly lies.


Audrey, from the frozen north

I have had that problem with trying to find someone. In the censuses they have, I think, 3 different birthplaces for my g-grandfather. For another one 2 different birthplaces (possibly) and I think from contacting someone else in the family, he was probably born in OK, which isn't one of the places where it said he was born. Not too sure on that. The censuses were all after they had passed away and were with the survivors giving the information. I can't really find anything on them at all other than that.

I'm glad that someone else is benefitting from these sites. Thanks for letting me know.

ATTWOOD3 I know about people lying. I found my paternal grandfather in the 1900 & 1910 census reports & both of them said he was born in Canada & His parents were born in England/Ireland. Spent many years searching for him with no results. Then I was looking at the death certificate of one of his cons & it said he was born in Waycross, Georgia. Yep, there he was in the 1880 census with his parents & siblings. I really wish I knew what the lies were all about, but apparently my grandmother discovered the truth after he died.

Hi everybody,

Just visited tipoftheday; thank you
Sandy. Looking for a woman, born in 1823 (I believe), somewhere in the States (probably eastern seabord) - Maryann Bazonni. Then somehow she married and was buried in Quebec (then called Lower Canada). Tipofday made me realize people lie, including old ones - tough on researchers.


Audrey from Canada, which is gradually getting colder AND THAT"S THE TRUTH!

I figured out why the links aren't working from SP. Of course, I don't know why they do that, but you have to take the "http" part off. Start with the "www" (unless that isn't on the link). If the http is on there it goes to a Google search.

Thank you for the information on the links.

I don't lmpw why it doesn't work from SP. It works from other sites. Maybe you can just go to Family Search & follow the directions in the post below. Sorry!

When I tried that it went to a Google search for different genealogy sites like ancestry.com, familysearch.com, genealogy.com. Took it right out of family search. Then has ones that say "free" but when you try the search it tells you you have to pay.

TIP OF THE DAY (Legacy Staff) - A secret at FamilySearch

By now everyone knows that FamilySearch has a plethora of records online but did you know that there are a lot more records online that you can't readily see? If you just do a search on the Documents page you will miss them. If you do a search in the FHL Card catalog you might just luck up and find a record set that has a link to images but since it hasn't yet been pulled into the indexing project you will not seen them in the list of records.

For example, take a look at this

https://familysearch.org/search/cata
lo
g/472237


Scroll down and the microfilms that have cameras next to them are accessible. Click the camera and you will be taken right to the roll of microfilm.

Personally..I know I am new and I don't mean to nor want to step on any toes..that being said..I stay far away from anything 'WIKI'

I deplore and despise Wikipedia as it is so fallacious and the data is not researched at all before posting!

I do look for other sites to search the data I need!

I have been using MyHeritage.com as my primary genealogy tool. I love it. I get SmartMatches and Discoveries from other sites as well as other researchers. So far, I have been able to get back to the 15th century in England for one branch of my family history.

My favorite two free sites are FamilySearch
familysearch.org for records and sources

And Wikitree
wikitree.com for online collaborative DOCUMENTED family tree building! :) I've added to one branch of my tree since joining wikitree and broke through a 25 year brick wall on another! WOOHOO!

Nice offer Minnie! I do lookups here in the US too for folks. Someday I hope to figure out WHERE in England my Franklin family came from and then I may be in contact to take you up on that offer! I spent a lovely vacation in England this past April--my first visit. It was WONDERFUL! Beautiful county and wonderful people. I learned a LOT about how to do research in England. Spent a few days in Coventry and Leicester where I have Abney related ancestry. Went to the Who Do You Think You Are conference in Birmingham. Two days in London at the National Archives. And finally a week in the Yorkshire Moors! So a nice range of areas I think. Am looking at making another trip possibly in September. Will focus on Northamptonshire area if I get too...our project has a goal to find out which, if any, US Franklins are truly kin to the stateman Ben Franklin who's family came from Ecton. Many claim kinship, although none are proven and most can be disproven! LOL

I've been emailing another ggranddaughter of my ggrandmother and thought I'd look up her ggrandfather to see if I could find out where he was buried. Well, went to Find a Grave and every time I tried to look at anything it asked me to pay. I thought that site was one of the free ones. Am I wrong on that? Did Ancestry buy them out, too, as well as newspapers.com (which it said I needed to subscribe to, too?

Find World War II Army Enlistment Records

This site was recommended to me by two search angels who use it in reuniting families. Worth a try. They say that it does cover more than World War II if you go to the index on the home page.

Confederate POW Graves at
Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery

Prisoners From Other States and Unknown







The following is a compilation of names of Confederate soldiers, citizens of the Confederacy, and other pro-southern political prisoners that are buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, having died under the inhumane conditions in the Federal prisons in St. Louis, Missouri. Soldiers are organized by the State their regiment represented. The location of the grave is designated by the initials "JBNC" followed by grave number. See the associated note for those prisoners who are listed without a grave number. Information on POWs thanks to the efforts of Sterling Price Camp member, Capt. Doug Harding.

The soldiers are listed below by State in alphabetical order, except those from MISSOURI, Civilian, or other named unknowns.
