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

Thanks Kay re: Lydia and New York state 1800-1850. It's interesting how folks left Connecticut and Mass. where events ere registered and totally forgot how to run a civil government and register births. If we didn't have censuses we would have lost the next 30-50 also.
