Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

Something Other Than Census

Woo hoo! It just feels so good to be working on stuff OTHER than the United States Census. What have I been working on? Marriage records, birth records, death records, obituaries, cemetery records and a zillion other things I found while ...

wait for it ...

working on the census!

Now, one of the things I found was for a man named Robert H.  I won't give his full name, but I will say that in his obituary, his second wife's name is given incorrectly as White. This woman is still alive to the best of my knowledge, hence the sketchy information I am giving. She was given to me as a probable source of information by someone more closely related to her. I was never able to verify until now her relationship to me. It was tough given her maiden name was wrong in the obituary. It's been 5-1/2 years since her name was given to me, and I just came across the note written to me by the other family member. I think I'll drop her a line!
