Handwritten Letters


I started to do my family history in 1982 by my paternal Grandma giving me a 23 page handwritten letter telling me about my Grandpa's family in Indiana, well atleast as much as she could remember as he had died in 1967. She also gave me her family history. Alot of the people she mentioned in the letter were people that I had never heard of. Back in her day, I guess they didn't remain close to family so they lost touch. That tweaked my interest and it didn't really go away. My life continued on, had children, worked, and all that happens in life. As the kids were getting bigger and needed me less, I started again on my family tree. The internet was a good source although not like it is now of course. I ended up finding a Wells in Paoli, Indiana. She would do research from there and then mail it to me. We found out that she was not related but she continued to help me as she was a true genealogist. When I had lots of information and the not related Wells had contacted some of our family, then we planned a trip. I was living in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada at the time.

In 1999, off we went. My parents, my two kids and I down to Indiana. I had a week off work and because we were driving in a motorhome, it was alot of driving. We made lots of memories on the drive that my kids still talk about today. When we got to Paoli, it was just amazing. Seeing where my Grandpa was born and raised, seeing the graves of so many ancestors, meeting living family, we even met an "old timer" that remembered my Grandpa and his family and told us some whopper stories. lol

It has given me memories to treasure for the rest of my life. We sent emails back and forth for awhile and then they slowly stopped. As my Grandpa had kids late in life, some of the cousins to my Dad had already passed away when we went down. It would be nice to chat with some of the family still alive down there. Maybe one day!!

Hi Sherry! You had a note from Jan 2019 on asking for it to be opened for editing. Seems to have been opened at some point, I'm not so sure you added what you wanted to add, but I tried to add the various "legends" etc. that seem to be out there. Maybe you have some additions or changes!?? Maybe even actual primary sources?...LOL!

Hey Sherry,

Yes, that looks like the same Julia to me. All the dates are the same and the sources are the same.

Your efforts to update/redo my lineal grandmother, Dorothy Heywood Holt are appreciated. I only wish you would have done

the research to really input 'who' she was & 'what' she was about; painting the picture of her true identity. Many court documents are available that make for quite an interesting read.

I meant to say Chaderton is an anglo/Saxon name originating from the hamlet Chaderton near Oldham where Elizabeth came from. So they resided in this area over a thousand years it would be interesting to see if there are any still around, I certainly have never come across this name before.

Dear Sherry: Regarding my recent addition of Ann Shoell (b. 1770) to my WikiTre, and your helpful suggestion. I have added the sources for her baptism, marriage and burial in what I thought was the approved style. They are certainly there, but invisible., don't know why! I understand the importance of this, and shall seek to include these references on all my ancestors' pages

Sherry....thanks for suggesting the merge...I am sure you are right that they are duplicates
posted by Cheryl (Coop) O'Malley
Sherry, Thank you for finding the duplicate profiles for Eliza Conaway. Before I created a profile for my great grandmother, I looked for an existing one. I didn't look closely enough. Thanks again. Rex Tennant
