Unfortunately the title may make it seem like I am advertising Fold3...and in a way I guess that is true. Why is this a bad thing? Because it is a paid site for genealogy research. Can people do research without these paid sites? Absolutely. Ron and I have often spoken about removing some of our subscriptions and we analyze on a yearly basis those organizations to which we join. This genealogy hobby can get a bit pricey and because it is so popular now (and has been for a while), there are many sites to vie for your time and dollars.

On Thursday, 23 November, the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) announced that new pension images were available on Fold3. These files cover the surnames M(Moore)-Q for the War of 1812. This is the first project installment of a series made possible by FGS and National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). What is great about this project? Access to the files is free!

It got we wondering what else is free on Fold3. As it turns out quite a bit. Check out the listing here.

      Winter is coming


      No, not the Game of Thrones.  I wish though.   Just thought that my primary genealogy season is usually the winter and early Spring.  Not sure what time you have available, but this works for me.

      The Spring Slowdown


      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
