P is for Precious. This Thomas family bible is one of my most treasured items. It belonged to my great grandfather James Thomas born in County Durham, England in 1862. It’s really huge but gorgeous with full color illustrations and best of all, handwritten names and dates of birth, marriage and death. #genealogyphotoaday #startswithp #genealogy #familyhistory #bible #ancestorstories #countydurham #family #gpad_feature #genealogyphoto

Sidney James Barton was born 121 years ago today. He was my great-grandfather, raised by a widowed mother from the age of 2, Oklahoman, father of two daughters, best friend and husband of Bessie. He and Bessie eloped at ages 18 and 16 and were happily married for nearly 60 years before his death.

Guess who? It’s not me and Bea, it’s my grandma holding my mom in the early 1950s!!! Today I did another post on how I’ve been approaching genealogy research in case you’re easy to jump into the 2 am rabbit hole of discovery (its addicting! Trust me!!) also! Adam and I finally decided to do an @ancestry DNA kit and I can’t wait for the results. They are on sale until 8/20 (not sponsored, but 40% off is a big deal!!) Please let me know if I can answer anything else not covered in the post! @familysearch @ancestry @newspaperscom #genealogy #familytree #vintagestyle #vintagemom #1950s #blackandwhitephotography #vintagephoto

On my grandfather’s honorable discharge record (1946), he had to give a right thumb print. I thought I’d see how my right thumb compares.

Being on holiday, is visiting castles, palaces. Old historic places with uncommon stories. Blenheim Palace in Woodstock (near Oxford) is a tipical show of force. It’s always interesting to watch that the only purpose of an elite is surviving as an elite. You are born and your from day 1 your mother tells you: don’t forget you are a member of the elite and your only goal in life is staying on top of the rock.
I saw this massive, ugly cradle in one of the rooms of Blenheim Palace. It was a gift of the American grandma Vanderbilt for her new born grandson. On the cradle you can see an escutcheon. This is not a average baby, no, this is the future duke of Marlborough. Beware of that.
Anno 2018 we laugh about this (I hope), so it is very interesting why the current duke exhibits photos of him and his wife and children in this palace. It’s getting a bit embarrassing display of birth. 
Where was your cradle?

Is anyone else fascinated by the people, experiences and paths that had to cross for you to exist? Yesterday we lost my great grandfather, Lance - one of the most cheeky, cheerful, resilient people I’ve ever met. While I’ve been drinking my port and listening to Johnny Cash to remember him, I’ve been thinking of not only the smiley old man with rum in his cough syrup I grew up with, but the handsome young man who took girls to the dance in a buggy, charmed a pretty girl called Valma Elsie with his skinny ties and built a house from scratch for his new bride. I think those stories are so important, and don’t want them to go with him, so next week I’ll go back to that house and rummage through the collections to add to my files. Vale Pop.

#обзор_источников
Вот так вот выглядит перепись, которая хранится в Государственном архиве Томской области (Ф.239.оп.16). В 17 описи только итоговые ведомости-циферки. 
Посемейных списков нет, хотя не могу говорить за весь фонд, вполне может быть что-то в первой описи. 
Но! Даже так - уже можно сказать, кто проживал в населенном пункте. Иногда и это уже большой шаг! К тому же, в метрических книгах порой не проследить старшее поколение, если они не померли, конечно, здесь - вполне можно.

#genealogyphotoaday: Day 16: P is for Pier, as in the pier at Liverpool, England. It was here that my aunt Bernadette — my mam‘s eldest sister pictured with her eldest son James — waited on the pier before boarding the ship the ‘United States’. My mam and dad accompanied Bernadette to Liverpool to see her and James away when they emigrated away from Ireland. Bernadette and James Jr. were following Bernadette’s husband, and James’ father, James Sr. to a new life away from Ireland. My mam recollected that although her sister felt terrified at the prospect of leaving behind life in Ireland, she was looking forward to her new life on the other side of the world with her husband.

#обзор_архивов

Вчера и сегодня была в Государственном архиве Томской области. Особенности:
-на сайте представлено все, но поиск не самый удобный (вкладка интернет представительство..)
-можно заказать документы через сайт, и приехать уже работать с документами, пока я не сильна в этом, не подскажу.
-в первый день можно поработать только с электронными документами (метрические книги, я думаю, все оцифрованы);
-если вы приезжие - на следущий день, а вообще для своих у них очередь на несколько недель - уже записывали на 22-24. -работают с 8:30 до 16:30, вообще без обеда по идее, но во времена, когда один из сотрудников отсутствует -обед 12:30-13:30.
-работают по пятницам (без подъема), не работают последнюю пятницу месяца.
-документы не поднимают даже, в моем понимании в россыпи.. но! Тут же перед подъемом подклеивают и вкладывают листы использования и итоговые листы. Это здорово, хотя от этого дольше подъем.
-говорить, что это просто 💥 огромное количество дореволюционных документов -нет необходимости. Глаза разбегаются 👀 -пока модно фотографировать, с экрана даже без заявки. Когда введут платное - не известно..

The black plane
.
(tip of the day: listen carefully to elder people's stories, and write them down or record them)

Photo of Pierre Laval's arrival in Austria, after leaving Barcelona at the end of WWII and the fall of Vichy's pronazi regime in France.

My father was telling me one day how he, during his military service, had witnessed the arrival of former occupied France Chief of state marshal Pétain. He clearly described the scene at Barcelona's El Prat airport, and how the former politician had descended from a black German aeroplane during the night, mentioning a distinctive white scarf. A few months later my father also witnessed his departure.

As I had never heard of Pétain being imprisoned in Barcelona, and considering how many years had passed since then, I checked all the details finding out that it was actually Pierre Laval who had been in Barcelona escaping from the new French authorities of liberated France.

Read another firsthand account:

B&W photo from Getty's (sorry, my father did not have his camera with him at the time)

На фото мой дедушка, Егоров Виктор Алексеевич 😚. Родился в деревне Тятькиной Козьмодемьянского уезда Казанской губернии 2.01.1913 г. Как я ранее упоминала он был самым старшим ребенком и поэтому после гибели отца дабы содержать семью , не окончив 5 классов школы, пошел работать в транспортную артель 🐎... парень был крепкий, футболист к тому же ⚽. На одном из футбольных матчей его замечают 👀 и приглашают поступать в сельскохяйственный техникум Козьмодемьянска . Ну что ж ,на фото как раз дед запечатлен в сентябре 1931 года уже студентом. И пошло-поехало 📖. По окончании учебы в 1935 году (след. фото) он вступает в должность ст.агронома городского Коопхоза. Участвует в организации 1й областной конференции садоводов в сентябре 1935 года . На фото  конференция в полном составе плывет с яблоками по Волге 😁. На этой волне дед едет поступать в Москву в Тимирязевскую академию, но неоконченное школьное образование дает о себе знать, математику он не сдает и возвращается назад. Окончание следует.

I'm sitting in the Albuquerque airport and asked a woman if I could do some genealogy for her.  She is a complete stranger, but she agreed to let me try.  Her name is Dee, I wrote down her parents and grandparents information on the back of my @Delta ticket.  Her mother is Adelia Poplawski, born in Betavia, NY. Dad is Francis Galas.  Maternal grandparents are Evaline Belkowski and Joseph Poplawski, both from Warsaw, Poland. Joseph was in the Russian army until his parents paid someone off which allowed Joseph to get on a boat and make his way to America. Paternal grandparents are Mary Gonglewski born in new York, and John Galas from Krakow, Poland.  This is from Dee's fathers 1997 obituary.

"A memorial service for Francis Chester Galas, who spent half a century cultivating a field of 40,000 lilies on his property in Lancaster and created several new hybrid varieties, will be held at 10am Thursday in the Urban Amigote Funeral Home... The well-known local horticulturist, who was born in Depew, died Saturday in St. Joseph Hospital, after apparently suffering a heart attack. Although he was 85 years old, the man known as the "dean of day lilies" worked as often as he could with his beloved flowers on his 10 acre place in Lancaster. He was working in one of his flower beds Saturday morning when he became dizzy and asked relatives to call 911. He apparently knew what was happening because he had survived a series of heart attacks over the years. #whodoyouthinkyouare #genealogy #genealogist #genealogygirls #familysearch #ancestry #taphophile #albuquerque #AlbuquerqueSunportAirport

O is for Hannah #Overton, on of my early #Quaker ancestors. She was a member of the Chesterfield Monthly Meeting in #BurlingtonCounty #NewJersey. She and her betrothed, Samuel #Willson, had to declare they're intentions to marry for 3 weeks before they could proceed with marriage. Here they've announced their intentions in the Women's Meeting on 1 November 1705. They were married about a month later on the 6th of December.

Here they've announced their intentions in the Women's Meeting on 1 November 1705. They were married about a month later on the 6th of December. #genealogyphotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory

August #genealogyphotoaday challenge, day 15: Starts with O
.
.
Owen .
.
Years ago, my mom took a trip to Iowa to visit my grandmother's aunts. My grandmother's mother died young, and Grandma was close with these little aunties. After my grandma passed away, that connection with the aunties became deep and important. They were able to share a great deal of family history and we are so blessed to have copies of these items. One that I love is this book that belonged to Owen Wright, my 3rd great-grandfather.  I don't know if he's the one who did this doodling but the book contains dozens of poems, funny sayings, and encouraging notes from friends and family. My favorite one is the poem from his wife, Letitia. They must have been newlyweds when she wrote it. It reads,

August is family history month at Auckland Libraries.

This is the May 1971 cover of Parade magazine, an Australian monthly which featured a lot of NZ content. 
As well as answering important questions about the existence of vampires, Parade ran a column called ‘Know your ancestors’ where readers could write in and ask experts for help on their family history.

The entire decade of 'Know your ancestors' columns was indexed by Vera Cobden from Canberra, and is available in the Research Centre in the Central Library.

Maria Ryan wife of John Ryan

Maria Ryan wife of John Ryan "Requiescat in Peace" Requescat means a wish or prayer for the repose of a dead person. I couldn't find any information on Maria or John. Common names are harder to find. It rained this afternoon in Albuquerque which made for magnificent skies over the Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery. I've included two grave markers with no names. A baby and a simple cross, no doubt placed by a grieving loved one who couldn't afford anything more. The central marker in this area of the cemetery is in a round-a-bout, a crucifix depicting a life sized image of the Savior on the cross. #cemetery #cemeteryphotography #taphophile #tombstone #tombstonetourist #headstone #headstonehistory #genealogy #genealogist #notrelated #albuquerque #mountcalvarycemetery #taphotourist #familysearch #ancestry

My 1st cousin, 3x removed - the Reverend Alfred Pickles. For reasons unknown this far down the line - though religious division within the family is suspected - he, and my 3rd Great Aunt Priscilla split from the Pickhills family, and proceeded to use the Pickles spelling. Alfred,  who started out as a watchmaker, became a minister in the Baptist Church - a strict branch of that religion known as Johnsonian Baptists -  in Rochdale, Lancashire. He then attempted to resurrect a church at Towcester in Northamptonshire. He married and had 4 children. #reverendalfredpickles #priscillapickles #Rochdalelancashire #towcesternorthamptonshire #genealogy

Before the day ends, wanted to get #startswitho in for #genealogyphotoaday. O is for #Omaha, where I discovered this month I had a (second) 2nd great-uncle named Sam Glazer (originally a variation of Shammai) who moved to Omaha with his family. His granddaughter informed me that after a tornado, lots of jobs opened up for my family who were carpenters, so this branch moved from Boston out to Nebraska. Here's Sam Glazer's WWI Draft Registration card with him living in Omaha. It appears the family returned to Boston for the 1930 census, but then must have returned.

Today's #genealogyphotoaday #startswithO. This is my grandfather's scrapbook from the time that was with the Oregon State Police. FW Sloat was hired in the mid 1930's and started collecting articles and photos which he pasted into this scrapbook. My grandmother, Thelma, made the cover. *

My grandfather was a very quiet man, but as he grew older I was able to spend a bit more time with him when he needed extra care. If you could get him in the mood, it was fascinating to hear him talk about his time in the police department. When I look through the scrapbook now with my kids, I am able to recall some of these stories and pass them on. *

April 6th 1919
Remagen on the Rhein
My great-grandfather, Francis Xavier McNamara. 5 years to the day later, my grandma Marie, his first-born, would join the world. 
I just saw the photo for the first time today, and all I can see is the strong resemblance to my big brother, @therealbossross

The Last Will & Testament of my paternal fifth great-uncle, Francis Wooden. “I give and devise to the children of my said sister Rebecca McDonogh including the one she is now pregnant with . . . “ That would be my 3rd GGM Sarah McDonough! She petitioned this will in 1830 to receive her fair share of this inheritance.
