Here you go, Howard:http://www.genealogyintime.com/GenealogyResources/Articles/a_guide_to_performing_online_genealogy_searches_page01.html?awt_l=CEpdY&awt_m=JUtXvVsFfQk.Vy ~Jen
Well, hello Howard. I thought that you might be finished with your search b/c the last I heard you were going to put out a book. Good to have you back. Since I'm not subscribed to Ancestry,I have no way to look up who you are looking for. Have you tried the websites that Walt has posted? I have found people on there...give it a try. And good luck!! ~Jen
looking for parents for Richard PARKER b 1804 in Ohio. Parents still unknown, but do know that it is not John and Charity West PARKER. Richard is in Harrison co OH in 1820 and marries Catherine Sherrow. They live in neighboring Tuscarwaras county. Catherine is daughter of William and unknown mother. Born 22 Nov 1813 in Ohio. She moved to Iowa to live with her son Sherrow PARKER in 1888 after Richard died, She died on 8 Feb 1895.
toni: where are your Jones from . I'm also working on jones, mine are from Ohio mostly,by way of Scottland, drop me a line we might be able to help each other
Looking for any info on a Harry Adolphus PARKER, born October 1924, either NY or NJ.
Yes, I'm out here. I would love to see the Seahawks, but my husband isn't much of a sports fan. The cheapest price I got from Ancestry was around $6.99 a month, or I could have turned the 6 upside down. It would be another bill & we are living from month to month as it is now. Have fun with those JONES..has anyone stepped in & offered to help you with that one? I refuse to work on LaBonte' b/c it's a dit name & I'm totally lost on those things as well as Ancestry in Canada. I'm glad that the 1940 census on this website helped you. I am still trying to figure out what to put where. I know one time I got up something that made sense & after that, it was like hitting a brick wall. ~Jen
Ha there is someone out there. I have the grandkids for 48 hours, while son & new wife are having a mini date to go see the Seahawks. I heard from Ancestry which is offering me a month to month subscription for $7.95. Thought that was a good offer but not much more that I needed but the 1940 census. Which I got above. The other side of family is Jones that married a Jones, but not related. In St.Louis also at that. I don't know how long I got to think on it. Toni
Yes, cooking is part of this weekend. Right now I'm so full & my husband is wondering where his dinner is!! Searching for: COONLEY, TRIER, TITUS & AMES.(Most came from the east i.e.,NY & settled in the Midwest.)
Good morning room, hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. This room doesn't seem to have much chatting going on. Unless everyone has been busy cooking. LOL. Hope to hear someone around soon.
Sorry, I hit another key & that cut my post short. I meant to say that I will post when I find what I am looking for. ~Jen
Have a blessed Thanksgiving. If you are traveling, please drive safely. I'm still working on the 1940 census. I will post when I find ~Jen
just stoped in to wish u all a wonderful , safe thanksgiving. God Bless the USA.
I'm going to be away from a computer for the next few days so let me wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Let us know what you find.
Just went to the site to see what you are seeing. First, the names. It asks for more than one first name and more than one surname. My answer there is, if there's only one name use it. The other information is for the computer to narrow the search for your benefit. If you're looking for John Smith and didn't narrow the search you would get hundreds of listings. For your parents, enter your father's name and in the State put Iowa. It should give you what you want if you look through the list.
I realize that all the directions are easy however, why do they ask for more than one surname & then they tell you that the county & city, etc. are optional. I tried looking up my parents & they were in IA in the 1940's. They were m in 1939. Am I missing something? ~Jen
I have to thank the room again I finally found what I needed and was able to print it off. What do I have to do to find the census. I have the ED and etc. My goodness they have done a great job on indexing it. There is hope for this yet. 20 degrees here this AM.
Thank you for all the suggestions. I did go to the top for 1940 census and it gives me nothing. I did try Ancestry all afternoon and came up with my name, and my two sisters. Also found people that has the name in their tree, but couldn't get any farther as they are to give me a new name, and send it in email. Now I haven't been able to find it again. sorry Mr.B, which it wasn't so hard for me. Between losing my memory mostly this last year, the meds, and getting a new computer windows 8 so differ than the 10 year old one we had don't know if I should try this again. But thanks one& all.
