ancestral embrace

Ancestral Embrace
http://www.ancestralembrace.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

Welcome family and friends.

I started doing genealogy research a few months ago, and have taken quite a liking to it. It was something I have long wanted to do, but did not know how to start. I got an email for a free trial to ancestry.com and decided to give it a try. Within a few hours I was finding information right and left.

One of the things I enjoy the most about it is sharing what I find with my friends and family. It’s such a great feeling to give a family member a piece of information about an ancestor that they never before knew. It’s also great meeting cousins, closely related or distantly related.

I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I enjoy sharing.

August Legacy
http://augustlegacy.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

This blog has been created to showcase the family history and genealogy of Craig Siulinski. As a fitting tribute to my grandfather, Auguste Albert, I have named this blog in his honor. Dictionary.com defines ‘august’ as: inspiring reverence or admiration. Based on this definition, my grandfather could not have been given a better name.

discovering latvian roots

Discovering Latvian Roots
http://www.celmina.com/genealogy/
Blog type: Latvian genealogy

Tens of thousands of Canadians, Americans and Australians have roots in the Baltic countries of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. But where to start in your research? It may seem daunting to pursue research in the records of a country whose that you may not know much about, and whose language you do not speak.

Numerous resources and guidelines exist out there for those searching their Estonian and Lithuanian ancestors, but resources in English for people researching their Latvian ancestors is minimal. This is where I hope to help!

I am a third-generation Latvian-Canadian, raised speaking Latvian, and hope to help others searching for their Latvian ancestors to find the information they seek. As time and knowledge permits, I may also be able to provide basic help for those seeking Estonian and Lithuanian ancestors as well.

As the site progresses, we will try to show a little bit about each family.

hacienda circle

Hacienda Circle
http://haciendacircle.blogspot.com/
Blog type: California genealogy, Individual family history

I am a genealogist in Northern California researching, writing, speaking, and just plain enjoying being introduced to ancestors and learning their stories. A Board member and volunteer researcher at California Genealogical Society she just never knew history could be so much fun.

Welcome, to Hacienda Circle, built in 1949, the home of a motley crew with DNA from England, France, Scotland, Ireland, Africa, Germany and Holland. By boat, wagon, and RR they came west — speaking English, Gaelic, French, German, and Dutch. Some were slaves, some owned slaves. Black, white and both, Catholic and Protestant, they settled in then left cities — Savannah, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley. They left farms in Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. And after all this, we ended up at Hacienda Circle. I am very grateful.

I am a novice, amateur family historian and love learning about the lives of family members who have lived before me.

Scottish Genealogy Blog
http://scottishgenealogyblog.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Genealogy vendor, Scottish genealogy, UK genealogy

Well hello, whoever you are. I must admit to being slightly, well very, apprehensive about “blogging”. This is a completely new experience so please bear with me as I get used to this phenomenon that has taken over the world. A friend has encouraged me to “blog” about our business for some time, he thinks it’s a good way to keep everybody up-to-date with our new projects.

sea genes

Sea Genes Family History & Genealogy
http://seagenes.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

Origin of ‘Sea Genes’ Yes, I know that googling ‘Sea Genes’ comes up with some obscure scientific research discussions. I chose the name because it’s a play on Seattle and my own ancestry. A number of my ancestors were mariners and Navy men. Thomas Maling of Kennebunkport, Maine operated a rigging loft. His son, Moses, sailed and owned ships, traveling the world. Another of Thomas’ sons, George, also was a ship master. George Clement Perkins, another second great grand-uncle, also sailed. My father and both grandfathers were also involved with the sea at one time or another. I’ve been working with genealogy and family history for over 12 years. Bookselling for 4 years with a two year break, but back since January.

My Stone family traces its roots to Guilford, Connecticut, in the early 1600s colonial times. After the American Revolution, Truman Stone moved to Leeds county, Ontario where the family has been based ever since. I’m focused on the Stone, Dewolf, Stafford and Sweet families of Leeds county, plus, my mother’s English heritage (notably the Bowles, Williams & Robinson families) and my wife’s Greek heritage (mostly Laskaris & Katsiris), but I’m always eager to add more!
