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.

Genealogy Do-Over without Using the Internet

How do I work on my genealogy research without the internet and still participate in Thomas MacEntee’s Genealogy Do-Over for 2015?

When Thomas MacEntee mentioned his Genealogy Do-Over, for genealogists, I got pretty excited. After 25 years of doing research, I’m ready for a partial do-over, but not one in which I start from scratch. With over 44,000 names in my data base, I feel I wouldn't survive the Genealogy Do-Over challenge, nor would my ancestors.

Without the internet for almost three weeks, I've had plenty of time to think about where I want to go with my genealogy goals for 2015. During my down time, I’ve been able to accomplish things I've always put aside in order to spend time reading facebook, reading posts and writing my own blog at Life From The Roots. Out of necessity, I had to find ways to continue with my research and organizing.

So what have I been able to do?

I went through xerox copies of book pages taken at various libraries many years ago, and entered the data on my RootsMagic6 database. There are many more to do, and this will keep me busy for many weeks. As I go along, I'll keep notes of what sources I need to locate on-line. This report and others done today are being done at my local library.

Located images of book pages I took at libraries on my iPad and transcribed them to my database. Taking photos of books with the iPad Air is incredibly easy, all pages are sharp and easy to read or if not quite so, I can enlarge each page.


A fun project was deleting over 13,000 photos from the 33,000 in my hard drive, thereby making it easier for me to locate images and photos for future posts. I hope this task will save me time during my future back-up process. My current 20,000 are not in any particular order, everything is by date. As long as my brain's memory holds out, I think I'll be fine. But, yes I should have labeled and tagged everything.


I've merged duplicate sources into one. And, along this line, check for consistency. If I have the state abbreviation of MA it needs to be changed to Massachusetts, and county needs to be co. I recently changed all my Brome and Missisquoi counties in Quebec to read, Brome-Missisquoi Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada.


The last thing that’s kept me busy is reading several genealogy magazines and journals. Something I normally didn’t have time for.


I've even thought about several major projects I want to accomplish during the Do-Over time-frame, when the internet is up and running again. My thinking about ideas for improvement flows freely. I love it!

Descendants of Nathan Gillett of Connecticut -- Surname Saturday

While going through copied pages from various books made years ago, I discovered I had another direct line to William Gillett of Connecticut. My tree was done for William's son Jonathan Gillett, see HERE, but I had little on the other son, Nathan, and didn't even know he was an ancestor! I found out when I read the below statement, and saw my Dinah Gillett and Joshua Higley as descendants that I got thrilled. Thanks to The American Genealogist's article "Nathan Gillett's Earlier Descendants" by George E. McCracken. Vol. 56 : 129 (July 1980).

"All writers on the Gillett family listed in our recent Bibliography are unanimous in stating that Jonathan1 Gillett had with him in Windsor, Connecticut, a brother named Nathan1 Gillett, yet the great majority of them, having once mentioned Nathan, drop him like a hot potato, and the few exceptions give brief and faulty accounts of him. It is therefore high time that some attention be given to Nathan's earlier descendants."

As long as researchers continue to dig for the truth, we are never done trying to find new bits of information. It never ends, as I've proven quite a few times. My direct lines are in All Caps. If you would like to see my sources, please write me.
