Researching genealogy is much like figuring out large, complex software, which I did professionally for over 35 years. As a geographer, the connections between families and their migrations are fascinating.

My ancestors lived in Central New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut and Iowa.

Surnames include: Sands, Ayer, Salisbury, Whiting (formerly Whiton), Cornish, Burk, Spinning, Stoner, Scranton, Sanford, Reed, Toepelt (Tapelt, Taplet, Taplett) and others.

Currently working on Scranton, Sanford. and Reed

Hi Kay,

Yes you have the LNAB, first and second marriage surname correct for the profile of Margaret. The profile looks great!

Hi Kay,

Yes you can use your birth record on your fathers profile as well as his birth date(s) as listed on the census and death records as sources. If you do not know the exact birth date for your father put it in as shown on the census or death record and click uncertain.

If you. your mother and siblings are mentioned in the census records for your father then you can also use them as a source on your own profile as well as theirs.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Hello Kay,

We've made a change in how the tutorials are sent to new members. Instead of weekly messages you can now work at your own pace.

How is it going so far? Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

We want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
