I first became interested in genealogy when my aunt published two books on my mother's family lines in the mid 1970s. I got serious about it when I logged on (via dial-up modem!) to Prodigy - the first online service with a graphical interface. One holiday weekend, probably about 1987, I logged into their genealogy forum. Looking at some of the posts, I found that my ancestors and my husband's ancestors knew each other in the 1700s. This later turned out not to be true, but it was interesting. I posted a query and quickly got an answer. Then another. Many of us stayed up most of the night chatting back and forth on dial up internet. I had found new friends and new interests and thought that Prodigy genealogy was always this exciting. Later I found out the reason it was so busy that night was that forum had been given free access for the night. It was not always that busy because it usually cost too much. But I was hooked!

Hi Jane - Unfortunately, no. But that is a great question and something I should have mentioned to you earlier. I'm aware of as many as three other Little families that were itinerant, or preceded my William Little line. There was a colonial Alexander Little who married a Boggan daughter, and if I recall correctly a Jacob Little, etc. I used to search documents in the Anson County register of deeds office and I do remember seeing deed references but not so many wills connected to these other families.

There is a researcher in Anson who knows how to search these records. He presently works part-time with the Anson Historical Society in their offices. His name is Steve Bailey but we should discuss before you engage him.

Hi Jane,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Let me know. I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders. Thanks, Abby
