Boulder Pioneers Project
http://boulderpioneers.org
Blog type: Colorado genealogy

The Boulder Pioneers Project is looking at as many original source records as we can locate for Boulder County, Colorado in the Territorial Period (prior to statehood in 1876). We will be posting updates on our Facebook page, and publishing indexes from our research available in the major genealogical libraries around the country, or for purchase on Amazon.com. When we get a new index ready, we’ll announce it here. We’re also interested in building a county-wide family tree staring with the pioneers on Ancestry.com. If you have a Boulder Pioneer ancestor and would like to add descendant information, please contact us at boulderpioneers@bouldergenealogy.org.

my ain folk

My Ain Folk The Faunt & Fants of Ireland
http://myainfolkfantofireland.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history, Irish genealogy

My new blog is sort of a One Name Study about my maternal line which is Faunt. They were political Normans, probably genetically from near the Pyrenees region. Walter L’Enfant and others were in the employ of the Norman kings and their family from 1100 until about 1580 during the Desmond Wars. My own family were mostly in Cork/Tipperary/Limerick for 600 years when they left Ireland in 1869 and came to New Jersey. Other lines ( Fant) are in Colonial Virginia c. 1671 and Canada and Australia ( Font and Faunt) Few are left in Ireland.

I have a bit of a following on FB and Ancestry DNA and FTDNA groups due to DNA and Irish research. The group is excited about my new blog.

pathway to remembrance

Pathway to Remembrance
http://pathwaytoremembrance.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history

As a young girl, I loved listening to my father’s stories about our family and the ancestors who came before us.

Over the years, several attempts were made to create our family tree on paper. The double cousins and such created a few obstacles; preventing him from ever accomplishing the task. In later years, he began recording the information on cassette tapes. Sometimes he recorded conversations with his aunt to capture even more family history.

As I listened to these recordings, I was struck by the fact that he often paused and addressed the listener. His hopes were that one of us would be interested enough to listen and realize the importance of remembering those gone before us; that one of us would capture our family history and ensure that this history was not lost.

Although I have always shared my father’s love of family history, it wasn’t until shortly after his death in 2002 that I truly began my journey into the world of genealogy.
In Pathway to Remembrance my goal is to capture and share my paternal and maternal family histories. My father’s hopes are now my own.

There is no death in remembrance.

The Fred and Alta Pugh Family – Memoirs by their grandchildren -cousins!
http://fredpughfamily.wordpress.com
Blog type: Individual family history

Our grandparents began their married life on the homestead in Eastern Colorado. They lived there raising their family until they moved to town.

The excerpt from the History of Kit Carson County, Colorado, page 664:
“Fred and Alta met at a “Barn Dance” and were married November 13, 1919 at Stratton, CO. The evening they were married Fred picked up Alta in a sled as there had been a big snow and they could not use a car. They got stranded in town and had to spend the night at the Collins Hotel.”

They had 12 children, 10 of them growing to adulthood. They are:
Walter, Ernie, Louis, Rosalie, Orville died as a young man at the age of 19, Virgil, Lavina, Orilla, Grace, and Jodell. Their families are:
Walter – 9 children, Ernest – 9 children, Louis – 3 children, Rosalie – 2 children, Virgil – 3 children, Lavina – 5 children, Orilla – 6 children, Grace – 4 children, and Jodell – 3 children.

The total grandchildren count is 44. There were also some step-grandchildren who came into the picture after I’d left home and whom I didn’t really know…..cousins, for those of you whose step-siblings were considered part the of the grandchildren count by Grandma, please chime in.
