  1. We are trying to sort through the mant postcards that we currently have on hand. There is a wide variety of used and unused cards so we are trying to figure out the best way to present them on the site. We believe that even though some of our cards have never been used, they are still fascinating to look at. Due to this, we will be taking digital images of those cards and placing them into our site galleries. For the postcards that have been previously used and mailed to someone, we are going to attempt a transcription of the card and to provide other meaningful data as we are able. Since the primary information on the card is the Adressee, we will title each DB entry using the name of the ADDRESSEE: Last name, First name. Adress mailed to Date and location of cancellation on card We will also include a digital image of the written portion of the card so others can check our transcription for accuracy. Lastly, the postcard entries will leave a forum comment area so others can comment or provide feedback. We hope we can find some homes for the momentos and family notes.
  2. The USA databases have been updated and are now available. We have also gotten some new information added for Michigan and Oregon.
  3. Does anyone else watch the Tour?
  4. I found a used book today and ordered it.
  5. The Johann Peter that came to America is not the one identified in a book that most use. Johann Peter and Thiess from that book never left Germany. I have transcribed the church books from that time period and have traced the family back another few generations until the church books end around 1670.

  7. Software upgrades are coming this summer. That sounds like a good thing, right? Well, it is. We are having to upgrade our information databases to handle the expected increase in content. In the coming weeks we will move our existing data into the new databases and then we ill be able to bring exciting new content to the site. Yes, exciting new content. We are going to bring our library, photos, and postcards to the website. With over 4000 books in our library we will provide the title, table of contents, and availability for some helpful lookups if you feel your relative might have information included within the book we have. Another fun thing is our postcard collection. We have amassed a sizable grouping of postcards, most have been used, which is why we get them. You see, we are going to place them on the site for members to search. We hope someone will find a long forgotten heirloom from a family member. We think it would be fantastic to get the postcard back to a family member that would appreciate having it. We also are considering some of our private antique photo collections and additional items such as maps, store ledgers, etc.. We just have to determine the value of putting them on line. One last thing.... All of these items will be view able to MEMBERS only. While the site currently costs nothing to use, and we don't see changing that at any time in the future, we think this is a nice member benefit. Hope you will check back to see how we progress.
  8. We created this page to display county information for each state. Our team is engaged in building out the content to populate this page, sharing genealogy and history information. In the near future, we will be adding our library records which contain Books, Newspapers, Photos, Postcards, and other unique materials. Some of these are being presented to connect descendants with their family heirlooms (postcards, journals, Bibles). These library records will also be useful to those wanting assistance in finding an entry for their ancestors; we will perform "lookups" as time permits. If you have suggestions for content or basic input on the website, send us a message. We would be happy to incorporate your ideas. As we continue to populate this page, it should become more useful in your research so please check back soon! View full record
