Huge Thank You

As I've read through some of my previous posts, it seems that a majority of my time is spent saying, "I'm back." I never got a chance to get going. With my husband gone, we are definitely staying super busy. I have so missed working on our genealogy, but I love it so much that I can't stay away. I'm hopeful to stick around this time.

In skimming through my posts, a glaring misstep stood out to me. I never thanked a sweet, sweet commenter who helped me so much. Tracy of A Multitude of -sens changed my life. Yes, that's a bit dramatic, but I'm serious.

She helped me after reading this post. I knew about the capabilities of searching records on Family Search, but wasn't as familiar with it and didn't think to search there at the time. She not only gave me more information on that one ancestor that I did not have before, but she opened the floodgates for so many more records. I hit the jackpot, mainly with Texas death certificates and New Hampshire birth records. Family Search is now a guaranteed stop for me in my research.

So Tracy, thank you, thank you, thank you. By taking the time to help me, you've literally changed the landscape of my research. I am forever indebted to you for your kindness.

Isn't the Geneablogging community amazing?!


  1. YES...the geneablogging community is amazing! Looking forward to reading more from you in 2010.

  2. Wonderful story! And yes, the Texas Death Certificates are awesome. Don't know whether or not you have any ancestors in Arkansas, but their Arkansas County Marriage Records are pretty great, too.

  3. Thank you, ladies!

    Greta, I have a few that were in Arkansas at some point. Thanks for the tip!
