Genealogy research helped with lists, records

Published 10:47 am Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Over the past several weeks I have been sharing records from the Confederate census. The information has been beneficial for some readers and I hope that others will find it helpful, or at least interesting.
I’m continuing with the list this week in hopes that the information will help those who are doing geneaology research. It’s always good to have access to more than one list of names, birth and death dates as well as family connections.
Picking up where we left off, the list continues here.

I’m always interested in helping out if possible when others are doing research of their family.
If there is a family name that I could help with, just drop me a line or give me a call and I can see what I can dig up on the name or family.
