The Luck of the Genealogist-Success Stories
Last month we talked about where we are stuck, so I thought it would be fun to share our successes this month.
- Have you just “happened” to find a record?
- Has a brick wall come down?
- Have you pushed back another generation?
- Have you discovered stories lost over the years?
- What about photos, family Bibles and other heirlooms?
- Has DNA led you to cousins and other family members?
Tell us about any of your positive research experiences! What did you discover and how did you do it?
Here are a few of the posts I’ve written about my finds.
Sometimes it seems we are “lead” to a record. This is what happened to me when I decided to look at the next image on microfilm. The answer to a long-held question about a family member was the subject of this post.
My dad found his grandmother’s Bible in a box headed for the trash after his aunt’s death. I write about the discovery and the wonderful mementos she kept inside it in this post for Treasure Chest Thursday.
This Tombstone Tuesday post shares my experience asking for help finding family while visiting a cemetery and receiving it a step away.
Now it’s your turn! What are some of your successes as you’ve researched your family or others?
Let’s share the positive and cheer each other on!
You can participate in this month’s GeneaChat by sharing a blog post or leaving a comment letting us know what kind of luck you’ve had!
Remember that links to your posts and the comments you leave will be part of the recap at the end of the month.
Looking forward to reading what y’all have to say!
