Interesting site..NY..Brief Palatine History....While these German Palatines were sheltered at various places in and about London, Peter Schuyler, mayor of Albany, came to England on business. He brought with him five Indian chiefs. One of them died on the voyage, but the others attracted much attention, as they liked to walk about the streets. Seeing the 'poor Palatines' in such numbers, one chief, a Mohawk, declared that these people, who were akin to the Dutch whom he liked, could find new homes along the Schoharie creek, west of Schenectady. From that time, the Palatines thought of 'Schoharie' and Paradise as the same........... Today we find their traces in the names of Rhinecliff and Rhinebeck. The Schoharie emigrants settled in seven villages along the Schoharie, each one kindly named after one of the leaders who had explored the road. )http://www.hopefarm.com/palameet.htm
I will trust Con ..and repest his wishes...Happy Birthday....:)
It is impossible to lick your elbow. Today I am researching the TATTON surname. Anywhere anytime.
That may be true, but someone else can.
Book Notes: BUTLER'S RANGERS, 1776-1786. 'An Annotated Nominal Roll of Butler's Rangers 1777-1786 with Documentary Sources,' by Lieutenant Colonel William A. Smy. Butler's Rangers were a military unit formed in support of the British [American Loyalists] during the American Revolution, who with their Native allies became a formidable fighting unit. The Nominal Roll lists approximately 900 men who fought with the Butler's Rangers and gives a brief biography of each. .... Additional information about the book, sample pages, and how to order it can be found at the Friends of the Loyalist Collection at Brock University website: http://www.brockloyalisthistorycollection.ca/ .....

POW Website Fills Gaps for Some WWII Family Histories - Thanks to Fred Beisser, who found a story by Colin Joyce of the London Daily Telegram, which appeared recently in the Washington Times Insider we learn that: ~ Nearly 60 years after the end of World War II, Japanese researchers have compiled a comprehensive database detailing the fate of the 3,526 Allied prisoners of war who died in Japan between 1941 and 1945. The database was created by the POW Research Network Japan, a group of independent researchers who built on the records of the Commonwealth Graves Commission. ... A breakthrough came with the discovery in the National Diet Library in Tokyo of a forgotten microfiche, almost illegible in places, of records made by the postwar Allied occupation authorities, who had garnered details of the fate of POWs by questioning camp survivors and former guards. The database can be accessed at: http://homepage3.nifty.com/pow-j/e/ ..... [*Previously published in RootsWeb Review: 2 March 2005, Vol. 8, No. 9.*]

just a word about the RootsWeb User-contributed databases that are only searchable but not browseable.... Someone had problems w/ this in the past???.. that means it will appear if nothing's there at first because you cannot view the actual database(s) - you can only perform SEARCHES in the search blocks provided. (you may have to scroll down a bit to get to that area) Then, if you get any matches to your search, only the matches will then be LISTED ONLY with the available info from the database - but that's all. - Gotta admit, the first few times I tried them, I was confused & wondering where 'everything' was too, LOL. ... hope this helps :)
What Tatton's do you need help with?

(now I only chose REYNOLDS in TX because I know our jacque has them in TX & one new file was just added to the TX cemeteries) but....... Here's just an example of searching in Rootsweb user-contr. databases... I just went to ~~ http://userdb.rootsweb.com/cemeteries/ .... scrolled down to the search blocks, typed REYNOLDS in Surname - clicked on Location block's drop-down arrow for the list, scrolled down to TX, chose Dallas Co., hit Search button.... got zero results! So I did all the above again, except this time for Location, I selected TX (all counties)..... then I got (13) matched results! Besides the names & info listed, you can also click on the link in the very last column (at right) that says 'MORE INFO'..... then you'll get some good stuff too - **& that is where you can also even add and/or view User-added notes to a record!** Obviously, all your results and all the locations listed in the drop-down window are solely based only on/with the data that's been submitted to date... so we can periodically search these database sections as new data/databases are continually being submitted. Good luck all!

Gee Mar, Thank you! The Palatine German NY site is my heritage, ie: Hainervill, subburb of Albany and name from my original immigrant 1710. I've contacted the Haner/Haynor Assoc. about the site to see how valid it is. First I've heard about the Indians inviting them!

I have a man in Georgia who is going to check the records in Cherokee Co. for any info on Willie Mae Evans Kemp Lamanac. He does look-ups for that area. I found him on a Georgia genealogy site. He said records in that Co. are very good so if the info is there he will find it. I asked him to look for another marriage for her and for her death particulaly and anything else he can find on her. I thought she might have left for another man and that would explain family's hostility toward her. I couldn't find anyone by that name in S.S. index that I can place as being positively her so maybe she did remarry and get a name change which she died under. She may even have left Ga.. Wish Helen could give us a little more to go on but I love a good mystery. He said it might be a few weeks before he can do the search but tell Helen at least someone is Trying. Soon as I hear from him I'll let you all know.

Hi! Great med. news for you! I was bored this week & kept searching Willie Mae EVANS KEMP LAMANAC/LAMANCE, even her spouses names, just like you did... even thought of the same possible scenarios LOL. Great you found a GA volunteer to check out for betty! Going that extra step may be just what betty needs to find Willie. We'll cross fingers 'n toes :)
I have found when I am getting nowhere w/my own research it is good to let it go for awhile and see what I can find for someone else. Often I have better luck doing someone else's genealogy! That's depressing! And thank you, I feel so much better now knowing I am not dieing of cancer, there I said it, that was my big worry. Now we are planning a vacation (Or 4!) He gets 4 weeks a year and we always go away for a week at a time. Canada here we come! Then Upstate NY. Then lower upstate NY.. Then A Cruise! I've got big plans for this year after the 6 months of worry I've had. A lot of time to make up for.
