Adolphus Ames Genealogy
Blog type: Individual family history, Pennsylvania genealogy
Welcome to my journey. I hope by blogging that I can find my AMES Family. Adolphus Ames settled in Liberty Township, Mc Kean, Pennsylvania about 1840 with his wife Sarah Julia and one daughter, Sarah. The census states they were farmers, owned land, and were from New York. They are one of my two block walls. I hope to jump the brick wall. I have a few leads. Maybe one of my followers out there will be able to help me out.
Blog type: Individual family history, Jewish genealogy
For me it started with a conversation with some friends who were working on their family histories. It was amazing how far back they had traced some branches of their family trees. Some were traced back with documentation while other facts came from family stories.
Two of my aunts had begun work on a family tree several years before. When I got a copy, I guess I was a little disappointed. I think I was expecting a huge family tree with information about the family before them came to America. The family tree they had was pretty much just the family that they knew but it was a good starting point. They were also working on it before the WWW so it would have been hard to document much of anything. I don’t know how people traced their family histories before the internet, especially if the trail led to the former Soviet countries.

My Father’s Posts
Blog type: African-American genealogy, Individual family history
During a recent trip to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, I found my father. After more than four decades of searching, it turned out he had long been within reach. No, my dad – Ebenezer Ray – was not an absent parent. He lived in the house on 828 Shawnee Street in Pittsburgh with my mother, Mary, sisters Ellen-Marie and Marian (now Malaya), and me until his death in 1967, a week after my 13th birthday.
What I knew was that my father had been a newspaper man. He had worked in the composing room of the Pittsburgh Courier before he was disabled by Parkinson’s disease. I also knew that he had dabbled in photography: There was an abandoned darkroom in our basement, and there were lots of photos around our house, including my baby picture, which earned Honorable Mention in the Carnation Healthy Baby contest in 1955. The photo credit from my christening announcement in the Courier says “ERay Photo.”
