My grandmother was a Strain from Texas. They migrated from Tennessee around 1875. Because the Henderson County courthouse burned twice, most of the information needed to trace her family ack further has become quite a progres block.
I spent the last year researching all Strains in Henderson County, Tennesee and Madison County Tennessee. Then on to all Strains I could find in South Carolina...nothing has helped me in connecting to the right family.
However, I have a year's worth of data that may benefit someone else reseraching Strains, so I have created a Strain Roots project profile page where I hope to collaborate and build upon. I am starting to add GEDCOM files to WikiTree for the research I have and hope you may find answers where I did not!
