Family Research News for November to December 2011


 

Note: Genealogy takes dedication. I was seriously dedicated to researching and recording my family’s history for many years. However, after too many struggles, too much expense, and endless brick walls I_just_STOPPED. I’ve only recently realized I’m feeling motivated and curious enough to try again. I hope I’m rewarded enough to stick with it. Discoveries can feel exulting!

It is currently 29 May 2022 and the following notes were from 2011; I have little recollection of the information. I've decided to backdate this post so I can start fresh with current updates.  

~~~ * ~~~

Most of the following items were acquired or updated between October and December 2011. Any research and updates I've done since then has in fits and spurts since. The CARVALHO updates are courtesy of a third cousin, who gave me some information on my second great-uncle, his wife, and two children.

My first cousin twice removed, Lucile Marie KANE, passed away on Thanksgiving Day 2011. She was a font of information, passionate about researching our KANE relatives, and supplied me with photos and documents. Even though we only spoke on the phone a few times we communicated via email and U.S. mail a great deal.
