My Great Grandfather is in the middle, David Elmer Wescott
I really enjoy finding out about where I came from and the people who are responsible for my being here today. I have come across some dead ends in a few of my relatives and in others I can go back to the 1600's. It amazes me how through census, cemetery and church records you can find out so much history. I have the original of the below photo but I found the same picture on one of my Great Granfather's brother's family's web page. When I found that web page I found more information on that side of the family. It's like a puzzle.
My Great Great Grandparents on my Dads side: Mary and Ethelbert Thompson
I haven't done much research in the last year, but I think I have been bitten by the Genealogy bug again. Thanks Doug for reinspiring me to begin my research again!
This is a copy of the ship's ledger when my Great Grandfather, Otto Bluethman.
Otto came to the U.S. from Germany in the late 1800's. I can't find any more about his family before that though. It's harder to find the information when your ancestors came from over seas, but maybe someday a distant relative will find me through the wonderful world of cyberspace!
