Family Research News for June 2022


After about an 11-year break I started up with the genealogy again. A small part of my decision to restart was that Ancestry was offering half off on their 6-month subscription plans. I went for the highest tier, the All-Access Plan which includes access to their worldwide records, Newspapers.com, and Fold3. The larger part was that I needed a project where I could feel a sense of purpose and possibly even consider it some sort of legacy project. 

My sisters and I were raised somewhat isolated from both sides of our family and any discussions about relatives were between adults and never clarified for us. It's been my impression that no one (except a handful of exceptions) in our family has ever wanted to talk about themselves or their immediate families. When I've gathered enough courage to ask questions I have allowed it to make me feel like a complete nuisance. Almost all of the knowledge I have about both sides of our family have come from documents after they've died. There are almost no family stories. My feeling is, we don't have to be rich, famous, or super accomplished to have a story to tell. 

In putting together a "paper trail" of documentation on our relatives I can almost get a sense of what they might have been like. Their hopes for a better life (frequently moving and changing jobs), their hopes for a more fulfilling personal life (marrying, divorcing, remarrying), their struggles (losing children, health issues, legal troubles, financial woes), and their successes (community affection and respect, a loving and united family, occupational advancement, etc.). This is my way of getting to know our ancestors. I hope my family feels the benefits much in the same way. On to the family introductions...
