Family Tree Discoveries
http://morontina23.blogspot.com
“Hey all! I decided to create a blog so that I can easily share all of my genealogy findings with everybody. Whenever I find something new, I’ll try to remember to post it here. Please leave comments so that I can continue to learn about the family and open new paths to find more.

I’m going to start with the first thing I found in the census data. I easily found the family of Eugene and Magdalena Eck by searching for Oma. If only everything could be that easy. Here is a picture of their portion of the census.

They owned their home at 294 Woodland Ave and it was valued at $12,000. The census also states that Eugene J Eck was a letter carrier for the US government.

I hope you all enjoy this first discovery. Check for more soon.”

“This is a blog of someone who gets a little lost and bogged down in genealogy limbo; that hazy place in between “hobbyist” and professional. Hopefully it will become a source of info as well as a source of support for those who are also making their way through the maze of records and business know-how.”

Putting The Family Puzzle Together
http://puttingfamilypuzzletogether.blogspot.com
“I don’t know why I am drawn to my family history. Maybe it’s my love for history, maybe it’s my quest for knowledge? Regardless, I am here. I’ve been using Ancestry.com for a few weeks. I have quite a few names and pieces to the puzzle so far. I had started researching my family history several years ago but I stopped. Not sure why, I just stopped. Now, I am back to it. I just ordered my 1st DNA test. I did both the paternal and maternal test. It should arrive in a few days. I will blog about the process. Ok, enough about why.”

Whose Your Daddy
http://findmyroots.blogspot.com
“Who we are today is a direct result of those who came before us. Join me as I travel through the last two hundred years of our past. We will explore the roots of who we are and where we came from and in the process we will enjoy the making of our future as our family’s history unfolds today.”
