Please help. I've hit a brick wall in my Brown and Elliott lines.

+5 votes
Hi, I'm new to WikiTree. I've set up profiles and have entered as much info as I can about my Brown and Elliott ancestors and have now hit a brick wall. It is as though the records for them have all but vanished over time. Most of the info that I have is from my baby book, and a scrapbook that my maternal grandmother, Marion Katherine Brown Elliott prepared from about 1919 to 1924 and a few records I've found on the internet. I'm not sure if I'm even going about all this in the right fashion, but if anybody can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it and if there is any info I have that someone else is looking for, I'll be glad to share with you.

I posted census records on a few of your ancestor's profiles.  From them you will be able to fill in some blank spots.

Have fun!!

Oh my, Patrica, Thank you so much for the info on my great grandfather, Lyman B. Brown and great grandmother Katherine Hughes Brown. Now I have somewhere to start looking. Your help is so very much appreciated.

You're very welcome Blaire.  I can probably find a few more things for you and will send them on later.  If I feed you some names then you could plug them into the free search tool at:    as Chris Hoyt said and go from there.


Thank you again Patricia for all of your help. If there is anything that I can do to help you or somebody else, please let me know.

Try the free search tool at:    plug in as much as you know as to names/date ranges/locations.  Try using data from the census links below etc.
