My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings has given us his weekly Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge for today.  It is: "Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Think about the question: Why do I pursue genealogy and family history research? and  2) Tell us about it on your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook."


There are too many reasons, so let's begin with the obvious. I want to know who all my ancestors were, and I mean all of them.
Also,
I want to be late for just about every appointment, because I need that last bit of information.
I want to be glued to the computer or have my nose in a library book.
I want to starve myself, because I won't get up to eat.
I want to get fat because I won't exercise because I want to be at the computer.
I want to get a sore back, sore hands and have eye problems because of the computer...need to blame the problems on something.
I want a messy house, because other things take priority.
I want a hobby that makes me appear smart.
I want to talk about genealogy and have others look strangely at me.
I want a hobby that doesn't cost too much.
I want to wear Genea-Blogger beads one of these days.
I want my non-genealogy fb friends to see all my fb friends, and think, "she knows a lot of people all over the United States, Canada, and So. Korea."
I want to meet somebody just like me.
I want people to think, "This doesn't sound like Barbara."

Surname Saturday -- JOHNSON, MEAD / MEED and SANGER

Elizabeth / Betsey Johnson is one of my "Brick Walls" and unlike some others, her ancestry is pretty much unknown. She was born Nov. 7, 1751 in Lynn, Massachusetts, married David Mead / Meed on October 21, 1773 in Lynn.  They had three children and moved to New Hampshire.  After his death, she married Abner Sanger and had seven children.  Her marriage record is written as: "Mrs. Elisabeth Johnson and David Meed, Oct. 21, 1773."  Does anybody know if that really meant she was previously married or was she an older single woman, and it was a title of respect (she was just 22)?

+ 2 i. ELIZABETH \ BETSEY JOHNSON was born 7 NOV 1751 in Lynn, Essex Co., Massachusetts, and died 19 MAR 1799 in Dublin, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire.

Conversation -- Part 3

My letter began with, “Dear Mr. Barnes” unfortunately, I didn’t save a copy of the letter nor did the recipient.  Now for the beginning. About 1996, I used a genealogy book, The Genealogy of Thomas Barnes of Hartford, Connecticut, and was so happy to discover that my ancestors were listed in the book, with a source!  It was for the marriage of ESTHER BARNES and NATHANIEL BISHOP of Connecticut

Immediately, I wrote the author a letter, since his address was printed in the book.  Within days, I received a reply.  Seems he was more excited than me.  Why?  He was born and brought up in my home town. Even though he now lives in California, some of his family is still living here in my town in Massachusetts.

When I decided to write about the letter, his book and our meetings, I contacted him and his wonderful wife, Edna.  Edna replied back, “As far as we can determine, it looks as if we first met in October 1997 at the Library.  I remember when you came bouncing in all enthused.  It was such a pleasure to meet you.  Also, we believe that Fred has visited with you in person four or five time.  He has visited with you twice by himself.  In August, 2009, I returned back to CA earlier than Fred so he met with you and did some additional visiting with relatives and "old" classmates.   He also was able to see you when he went back to his 50th High School Class Reunion in 2001.   When we both went back for his 55th High School Reunion in 2006 you met us in Andover, MA.  I'm not sure what year it was that you welcomed us into you home.  You were doing some remodeling but wanted to share some of your genealogy material with us at that time.  Please let us know if you have any questions regarding Fred and his home town as he was "growing up".

This wonderful friendship developed because of a simple letter.  In addition, Fred is also my 8th cousin, but it feels like a 1st cousin with both of them.  They are both members of my local genealogy club, long distance from California.

If you have a BARNES line in your family, chances are pretty good, that person is in Fred’s two volume set, reprinted 2001.  Please contact me if you wish further information.

Conversation -- Part 2

After three hours of looking through microfilm at the New England Historic and Genealogical Society’s Library (NEHGS) in Boston, I was getting pretty tired. In addition, I wondered about the man who was sitting next to me, who was also doing the same thing. There we were for all those hours, getting up to get a new reel, making copies, putting it back to get another one. Finally, I decided to start a simple light conversation. Something like, “what are you working on?” You know the answer, don’t you? Turns out, we were both working on Canadian censuses, for the exact same location…and the same family! We might have been looking for other names as well, but we were both looking for Westover names. Yes, the exact same surname as Gail (from yesterday's blog) and I have. My new found cousin, Jim and I couldn’t believe our luck, and I couldn’t wait to call Gail to share the news.

Unfortunately, Jim lives in New York City, and he was leaving in a few days. He took a temporary court stenographer’s position in Boston, so he could use the library for his Canadian research. We of course shared much information after he returned home. On two trips to NYC, before September 11, 2001, my husband and I met Jim at the New York Public Library for quick visits. He obtained some legal documents through the Missisquoi Historical Society in E. Stanbridge, Quebec, typed them up, and sent me a copy.

These encounters had surprising results, but to have two, with the same surname is pretty much unbelievable, I think. But they are both true, and that is why these blogs on Conversation were the very first I was going to blog about.

In the past, when I attended conventions, I always had my major surnames printed on the back of my business cards to hand out. Doing that simple step might help make a connection. Although, I think most people at conventions aren’t really looking to find cousins (that is what the internet is for), but it could work, either with the cards, or with chatting with the person next to you.  Part 3 of Conversation has to do with writing to an author.

Conversation -- Part 1

Close to 12 years ago, our new local genealogy club had their first annual pot-luck dinner at a sports club.  At least 30 people were there, and I only knew a handful of them.  Fortunately, my husband was sitting next to an older lady and they struck up a conversation.  I suppose one thing led to another, and they exchanged names.  Low and behold, her married surname was familiar to my husband because I was working on that surname for my tree.  Gail, the daughter, came over and she was also working on that exact same line!  We had so much to chat about. She was my first found cousin, a 6th one at that. The most exciting thing was, mother and daughter were planning on going to the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Canada the following summer to find cemetery stones and to do some research.

When they returned from their trip to Sutton, Dunham, and Frelighsburg, Quebec, Gail had duplicate copies of all her photos made for me, and a written copy of the inscriptions.  How could a person get any luckier?

Now, you can probably guess that I also had to make the same trip.  So three months later, my husband and I, using Gail’s local map for that area, retraced part their trip.  From Massachusetts, we went through Vermont and into Canada north of Burlington, it probably took close to six hours. We spent three nights at a lovely modern bed and breakfast, and managed to understand the inn keepers, who spoke mainly French.  Although this area is mostly English speaking, there are a fair number who speak French.

Years later, my cousin bought a series of books, the vital records for the above named towns, and I was able to borrow them.  It sure helped that I didn’t have to buy them as well.

When I first began blogging, this story was one of the first things I was going to write about, and now many months later, I am finally sharing it. The point of all this is, it is important to communicate with others who share your hobby.  I have learned this twice.  Part 2 will illustrate another example.

The Courthouse at Fonda, New York

Of all the libraries, archives, or historical societies I’ve been to, this repository has made the biggest impression. The Montgomery County Department of History and Archives, (New York) was formed in 1934 and is housed in an 1836 old Courthouse. It is this Courthouse that I decided to write about. Yesterday, I was at the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) talking to somebody and it was mentioned they had New York roots because I was working on my Albany line. I asked if they had ever been to Fonda, and she didn’t know what I was talking about. Returning home, I knew immediately that I should write about this wonderful place.  If you have ancestors in this area of New York, you are very fortunate.

In 2000, the year of my trip, I had no expectations of this facility, since the internet didn’t provide any information and I didn’t even have the catalog of their holdings. Somebody must have raved about it, or I read about it, either way, I wanted to visit Fonda, the Courthouse and Stone Arabia, NY.  When we went, I could have stayed for days, but the four hours had to do. One thing I absolutely loved was their huge collection of DAR books for cemetery listings, births and deaths, most were from the 1930s. (I bet it is the next largest collection of these books next to the collection in Washington, DC). The following year, I bought the catalog with thoughts of another trip. The cost is now $12.95, (my 2001 edition has 186 pages). Permission was granted to show my scanned pages, as well as to use the photo of the Courthouse.

From their web page, “Vital records, such as births, deaths and marriages, are indispensable to the genealogical researcher; Note that these records were not required to be kept by the State of New York prior to 1880 (only miscellaneous records in the city and town clerk offices prior to that date). The Montgomery County Department of History and Archive and research library contains the third largest collection of indexed genealogical records in the State of New York to meet these and other needs.

The historical and genealogical research library contains thousands of original county records - (common pleas, deeds, Supreme Court and Surrogate's Court), along with a vast collection of genealogical material - (census, cemetery, military, church, etc.) that are vital to the researcher. Also vital is our over 500 historical and genealogical folders compiled by the department over the past 54 years.” I believe I’ve shown why I loved this place.  See Wikipedia information about Fonda.

Monday Madness -- Jamboree and my "Brick Walls"

Many years ago, at least 13, I prepared the below flyer to be posted to a wall at a Jamboree.  I mailed it, assumed it was posted and never heard from anybody.  No problem with that.  However, I am wondering if this was for the same Jamboree coming up soon.  When I located this gray sheet recently, I began to wonder, and with all my senior moments, I thought somebody could remember for me.

After all these years, only 5 walls have come down.  Those being: ANDERSON, DUMONT, LAY, ROSENBERGER AND SCHRAMBLIN / SCHRAMBLING.

ANDERSON, His Descendants and Ancestors And How I solved my "Brick Wall"

How I solved my Anderson "Brick Wall"

The Anderson line was a "Brick Wall" until 18 months ago, when it was solved with the help of information from an April 2000 message board. Another person was working on their Anderson line eight years ago, and putting all the records she found on that same message board. A lady named Dorothy had helped that person out. I felt that that some of the information could tie into my line, but I needed help, as Dorothy had a copy of a limited edition of a 660 page genealogy, that had my names.  It was a wise move to contact her, because the book had all the sources too, and she is pretty much an expert on New Netherland families.  She sent me copies of all the pages I needed, and the rest is history.  You never know how or when your "Brick Wall" will come down, but when it does the feeling is simply wonderful.  Thank you Dorothy.

Even locating Dorothy was easy, although her email was no longer in service. A google search showed that she was a member of a genealogy club, and Stephen Danko attended meetings there. Within days, after contacting him, I had her email address. After a quick email to her with all the facts, she wrote back, saying, "I'm glad that you were able to locate me!"  So you can see, I used quite a few methods to solve my mystery.
