Searching for One Record, Finding Another




More and more records are now being placed online that can help with your research. While looking for an older relative born in 1770 in Virginia, I ran across her great great grandson's ( James Driver)  prison record. Interesting, you never know what you may find.

Tracing those Underground Railroad Ancestors

After getting a request to locate a family of a Run Away Slave I decided to begin on line and then travel to Canada togather more info.

Going to Conferences and listening to speakers will help you find more records also.
