my fellow genealogists,
Brrrrrr! Where is Spring? Can’t get out to do any research! Snowbound! Cabin fever! We have been spoiled by mild winters. We can do research at home on the
internet, and then when we can go and do research we have “hints”
of where and what to look for.
was contacted by the Journal and Courier about doing genealogy. This was out of the blue and I really
wasn’t prepared to do an interview. In
fact, I was busy studying for the Bible Study that will begin in another week. So my mind was not even in contact with
genealogy. I have no idea what the
article will look like and I admitted being the president…what was I
we begin 2014 I hope the Society can bring to you what you are looking for. Any suggestions are greatly
appreciated. This Society is your
Society! If there is a speaker you
would like to hear, topics you would like to hear, trip you would like to take
(even overnight), please submit your requests.
We will do our best to make something happen.
12, 2014 meeting will be at the TCHA Library, 10th and South
Streets, 7:00pm, Lafayette, Indiana. I
hope everyone will be able to make it out.
You will be finding out what is available there and, on your time, come
back and do research. Whether you
have been doing research for a long time or just started, there will be things
for you to learn. (Every time I go
I find new things to explore with my family.)
12th 2014 meeting is still in the planning. We are trying to get into the
Tippecanoe County Public Library on South Street, 7:00pm, Lafayette, Indiana. They have some new equipment to show us
how to use, some may have used it already and you can help in the future. There is the Indiana Room, and I am
sure there are other areas I am not that familiar with.
new area I will be looking into is “School Records”. I heard a talk on this subject and am
looking forward to this new research source.
I have learned our church school records go back to the beginning. I am anxious to see what I will find. I hope to confirm I have the right
parents and children together. If
I have no information with a name of a child in my records hopefully I can
fill in information or put the child in the right family. I do have some of these.
there a new area of research you want to look into? I have not done research on every
aspect there is. I know I have
only touched the surface. Doing
the Research Logs with everyone I hope will educate me and get me into my
