52 Ancestors : Week # 46 – Different Language

I’m participating in Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge. The writing prompt for this week is “Different Language.” One of the biggest stumbling blocks in researching our genealogy that I’ve come across is how do I trace a family tree when all of the records are recorded in a different language? If there is one…

52 Ancestors : Week # 38 – On The Map

I’m participating in Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge. The writing prompt for this week is On The Map. Every once in a while Ancestry releases updated Ethnicity Results for our DNA tests. I thought that was quite fitting. In case you are thinking, wait a second…how is it possible that my DNA could change?!…

52 Ancestors : Week # 33 – Troublemaker

The writing prompt for Week # 33 in Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge is TROUBLEMAKER. I will resist the urge to name my brother, kidding 😉 There have been a couple of ancestors that have caused me grief as far as my research goes, so to me they are the troublemakers. John Wright The…

52 Ancestors : Week # 9 – Disaster

I’m really finding this 52 Week Challenge to be just that, a challenge. These weekly prompts have really pushed me to look into my research deeper and for that I am grateful. This week’s writing prompt is DISASTER. This will require some brainstorming… In the dictionary the definition of disaster is a sudden event, such as…

52 Ancestors : Week # 7 – Favourite Discovery

Trying to choose a “Favourite Discovery” is nearly an impossible task for me. I have just learned and discovered so many fascinating things by doing genealogy as a hobby. If I had to choose some of favourites, these would likely be in the running… informing my husband and father-in-law about their ancestors that came across…

David Wright 1831-1902

The David Wright I am researching lately was born in Troy, New York, USA in 1831 on April 30th. He is my husband’s 3x Great-Grandfather. There are several David Wrights in his family! At some point we know that this particular David Wright immigrated to Canada, more specifically into the Egremont, Ontario area. When I…
