Blog type: Family

Welcome!  I’ve been blogging semi-regularly for a few years now – sometimes as a mom, sometimes as an advocate for my kids’ education, sometimes as a wanna-be genealogist.  I finally decided that it was time to gather all of my genealogy/history thoughts into a place all of their own.  This is where I write on my own family history discoveries, and my journey into the world of certification (or becoming certifiable).

Genealogy By Eric
http://genealogybyeric.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Cemeteries, Family

It all started about 4 years ago while out for a walk in the neighborhood, my wife Kathy got stopped and asked about a cemetery in the area from some random stranger.  Neither of us knew about it but just a couple of doors down there was a cemetery, the Roberts Cemetery.  We immediately went to find it.  On our way back we stopped by our neighbor who had been in the neighborhood since the houses were build back in the 1960′s.  After talking with her and a few other neighbors we found out that what we had found was only about half of the original cemetery.  The builder of our neighborhood tried to buy the property but was unsuccessful because of the cemetery.  However just a few short years later a new builder came into the area who was going to build apartments for section 8 housing, the North Brighton Townhomes.  For whatever reason they were either able to skip past the red tape of buying the cemetery or just completely neglect that there was one there all together.  This lead to the cemetery being bull dowsed over, before the cemetery was completely wiped from the face of the earth the neighbors stopped the construction.  To mend their mistakes the construction company picked up and laid all the tombstones in concrete, face up.  Now after already surviving some 100 years the cemetery faced its next big struggle.  Normal tombstones are standing upright which protects a lot of the stones from the weather.  After 50 years of being in concrete the elements are greatly taking their toll.  Snow, ice, dirt and wind are slowly erasing the names, dates and last loving words.  Even if you look at the photos of the Roberts Cemetery which were taken in 2008 and then look at the stones now you can see a big difference.

My blog is my way to share my knowledge to with the community and my family.

howard county arkansas

Howard County Arkansas
http://howardcountyargenweb.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Arkansas genealogy

Howard County emerged from the midst of Hempstead, Sevier, Polk and Pike Counties. A reconstructionist state government in the Nineteenth General Assembly passed Act 57, April 17, 1873, taking townships from these four counties to construct Howard County.

Howard County in bounded on the north by Polk and Pike, on the east by Pike and Hempstead, on the south by Hempstead, and the west by Sevier and Polk Counties. Its greatest length is 42 miles and its average width is about 12 miles.

The county was named for James H. Howard, senator from the Seventeenth District which then included Pike, Sevier and Clark Counties. He had won office with the backing of Governor Powell Clayton as the “Radical Republicans” came to power in Arkansas in 1867.

Howard was the son of James H. Howard, born in Tennessee about 1838, who emigrated to Arkansas about 1853 and settled at Center Point. James Howard learned a shoemaker’s trade and married Rebecca J. Dossey in Madison Township.

writing up the ancestors

Writing Up The Ancestors
http://writinguptheancestors.blogspot.ca/
Blog type: Family

I’m Janice Hamilton, a genealogist and writer. In this blog, I recount the family stories of my ancestors as they immigrated from Scotland, England and Ireland and established new lives in Canada and the United States.

This blog is about two things: the stories of my ancestors, and the stories behind those stories.

My ancestors include 19th century Montreal businessmen, farmers in colonial western Massachusetts, Scottish teachers, Durham yeomen, Philadelphia merchants, Upper Canadian settlers and Manitoba farmers. My aim is try to bring these people to life, although I often end up describing a visit to a cemetery.

In the second part of each post, I comment on sources, my research process and brick walls. I want this section to provide readers with something they can apply to their own research; in addition, I hope readers can provide me with suggestions.
