Pages

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.

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.

You should forward this story to Martin Holleck. He hasn't made any cousin connections with on line bulletin boards!

From Carol S.: "FB chomping comments again, anyway, I was saying, the how yout broken down the wall was very interesting, Good read!" Thanks Carol.

Barbara said...

Also from Heather: I loved this story! It's always interesting to see how people break through their brick walls. Don't you feel like a detective? Very exciting...

T.K. said...

So cool that a fellow geneablogger was able to play the middle-man for you, Barbara. And really, I see that I should try to develop a little more tolerance for at least checking the message boards--it really proved useful for you. Nice work!

Greta Koehl said...

I also love those message boards and have broken through brick walls with them. And, for the biggest "brickwall smashdown" so far, I did what you did - a little snooping around to find the e-mail address for the person who had posted the essential information but had changed e-mail addresses! Enjoyed this post - it brought back those fond memories.
