    How to Search for Illegitimate Families #genealogy

    How to Search for Illegitimate Families

    child in gardenWhat if your someone in your family did not marry, yet had children? You possibly know the first name, but not the surname. Let us say that John Smith and Mary had seven children listed on the 1850 Census yet you never found a marriage record. Further, members of your family hinted that the children were illegitimate. And you followed the trail of the census, deed records, for the places they resided, wills and estates where there was scant information. Here is a problem to be resolved. John Smith left Virginia in 1812 with several children. First, the War of 1812 militia records were examined at the National Archives which indicated that John Smith served in a militia company located at an outpost on the border of Jasper County,   ... more ...

    The Historical Past Reveals What Happens Today

    The Historical Past Reveals What Happens Today

    Washington Crossing the DelawareYou have doubtless heard the expression that "nothing is new under the sun?" Understanding today involves knowing yesterday. The modern age has suffered a re-writing of school history books. This is unfortunate, because the writers were not present at the events, nor alive. That means that the modern version of the past is "opinion" or "propaganda". That leaves the task to us of teaching historical subjects to our children. But this easy for genealogists who researches every detail of the ancestor's lifestyle and the surrounding events, such as immigration and wars. He reads pensions from the Civil War and Revolutionary War, and learns of the movement of troops and details of battle. He appreciates that muskets, sabres and rifles were used to defend the families during war and against the Indians at frontier forts. He follows the ancestors as they took up land grants, drew in the land lotteries, land bounties to settle mountain lands, the movement westward and battles with Indians. He reads civil war diaries and the diaries of white women taken as Indian slaves in the Allegheny Mountains and dragged into villages further westward. And, as the history of each family is discovered, the genealogist shares the factual information with others. More of these stories need to be passed along in families. Lest we forget!

    Preserving the Old Traditions and values

    Preserve the Old Traditions and Values 

    Working to Preserve History
    While genealogists work to preserve their family histories and relate the interesting tales to their children and grandchildren, there is a disruption of traditions and beliefs encircling the globe. Every generation has treasured its ways, from the way we speak, walk, dress and act, to or spiritual beliefs.  And yet there has been no American tradition so valued as our personal freedom, and the right to worship our God.  This generation has gone awry with its preference for the re-written history of the conduct and actions of our ancestors.  Yet, somewhere back in time, in the past of the disruptor's, lies some very startling facts concerning themselves and their ancestors.

    If they traced back several generations of their lineage and found some brave patriots who loved freedom and the right to worship so much they they gave their lives and fortunes for it, perhaps a greater appreciation of former generations would awaken them from the deep sleep of ignorance and stupidity.

    Perhaps it is up to the old folks to restore peace, love and appreciation for those who came before us by writing more articles and telling more stories on the Internet of how the ancestors sacrificed everything for their posterity!  Then, while the disruptor's are wasting their youth spouting anger, marching in parades, littering our streets, vandalizing homes and stores, etc., we will be writing the history of today, of how much we still care for our traditions and values.

    When the Computer is Not the Answer to Genealogy

     When the Computer is Not the Answer to Genealogy

    The modern age of technology is wonderful!  However, we must not rely upon genealogy programs to find the ancestors. Everyone knows that tracing the family roots is a tedious process involving many long years of hard work. To the new researchers out there: one cannot just sign up somewhere and expect to find the family tree.  Should you think that this is the case, the work itself is riddled with errors.  For this reason connecting to a World Tree is not advisable. One must keep their errors to themselves, not share them!  That is, until they are resolved with factual evidence.  Otherwise, in the end, that World Tree will be a trash dump no one wants to tackle.  Already the term "junk genealogy" has emerged and cleanup is near impossible. The computer programs of today merging data are not cutting it.  Hence, human beings must continue to control genealogical research and maintain it privately on a simple computer program.

    Free Help on your Brick wall

    Tracing the Family Tree has its own Special Value to everyone. I have been doing it for more than fifty years now.  The massive collectible data caused the publication of over 100 books on the subject.  Also, the establishment of 8 Genealogy Websites (recently merged together under Georgia consists of over 2 tetabytes.  Yes, I collected images of over 700 million old wills, estates, marriages,  obituaries, cemetery records,  pensions, databases of my books, and 3000+ Traced Families and Special Collections for Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.   You won't find this information anywhere else.  So why do I want to provide a free research service to members?  I suppose it is because I understand the struggle to find the ancestors and just want to help.

    The free work covers research in the county where your ancestor resided.  To take advantage now, all that you need to do is CLICK HERE TO JOIN

    Then, email me your request so that I may get to work on it!
