“I’m OK”

Yours truly dressed up in red, white and blue before joining the crowd of residents at the Club House. Hamburgers, hot dogs, etc., etc. to celebrate the 4th of July. Moments after I joined the group, a lady-friend approached me and asked: “Are you OK?”  She reads my blog and is concerned when I skip a day or two without a blog message. As you might surmise, I’ve been “climbing the family tree.”

Of no particular interest to the reader but I’m going to share illustrations of my frustration with Ancestry Member Family Trees. There are “sources” available if the “member” would only spend some time with the “search” feature. (Click the pictures to enlarge for a better image.)


There is such a sense of satisfaction when I can go to a book I published (1989) and add those details to individuals I am documenting. (A surprise around every corner!) Ancestry provides a green leaf as a “hint” for a source. Frequently I find a “hint” in my material that allows me to gather data otherwise not “hinted” on Ancestry. Detective Lorraine here?

Click this link and you go to the website I prepared a couple of years ago. I scanned LaVerne Evergreen Cemetery Tombstone Inscription pages (and volumes of other genealogy) and offer it “free” on the Internet. Recently I mentioned the sudden inspiration to check Digitized Library of Family History for Neher family information. I never dreamed LaVerne Evergreen Cemetery Tombstone Inscription (published in 1989) and Frantz Families–Kith & Kin (published in 1996), and Digitized Library of Family History (published in 2017) would be so valuable (to me) in 2019. Hopefully, other researchers will find the information helpful, too.

    Is your website linked to the county historical society? I bet a lot of people would find that interesting!

    • Nope, Deb, I’m not “linked” to anything other than the web (lol). Ideally, I should be linked to *Brethren Heritage Center* in Brookville, Ohio. ~~ I moved from California (where they just had an earthquake) to Brookville, Ohio, so I could volunteer there. Long story but my TLC was rejected. I just pray folks with the surnames I’ve documented will do searches on the Internet, or Ancestry, and find my research(ed) material.

      Wishing you an early evening Happy 4th of July. Soon we can sit back and watch the fireworks on TV.

      Love and hugs from Lorraine
