  1. Maryland Military Historical Society

    Very nice site a records. I enjoyed using it this past week.
  2. Danish Research records

    I have restarted my efforts using Danish census and Church records. Though the Family Search site has a wealth of information, it seems to hard to find with so many linked pages. Gotta find a concise resource.
  3. Game of Thrones

    Still enjoyed last night's episode. Seems there is a bit more to Dany and John.
  4. Game of Thrones

    Has got to be my favorite program for the last years. I can't remember another show that had me anticipating the next episode.
  5. Danish Archives are providing digital online records, found by accessing their homepage (link below). Lutheran State Church records, Danish National Census records, and other resources are available online. https://www.sa.dk/ In the middle of the page in a grey section is Arkivalieronline. This is the most interesting area I have found. The small pull-down menu area allows you to search for the various records. In my first use I went to Kirkeboger. and then press SOG it bring you to another selection area.... Select Kirkebøger fra hele landet as this will bring you to the Church Records from around the country. Then you will need to select a region AMT and a village area. Once there you can determine if records are digitized for the dates in question. View full record

  7. My family came from the area surrounding Aarhus. We are thinking about a trip, but less of one for research with records and more of one to see the area, churches, and villages.
  8. User driven focus?

    Are there any regional research efforts that you would benefit from? If so, let us know.
  9. Most of the major changes are in. We have adopted a number of new features that include Clubs you can create and run on your own, have calendars, blogs, etc.. Other features surround Gallery upgrades and personalizing features.

  13. The 5 Immigrant Dunschmanns, Westerwald

    I think I have solved much of the riddles for Johannes Peder Dunschman now. Just a few more things to verify.
  14. Yes, I am starting again. I cannot find any information of value at Ancestry. The site is terrible to use. The trees are so full of false data I have no idea what to believe or reject. The following 5 Dunschmann men supposedly came to America in the 1700's. I will build a generational tree for each of them and see if there is any chance to build a long family tree to link to relatives of today. Johann Peter Dunschmann Johan Theiss Dunschmann Michael Dunschmann Paulus Dunschmann Johann Gerhard Dunschmann
  15. How this will work

    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.
  16. 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.
  17. Database and upgrades

    The USA databases have been updated and are now available. We have also gotten some new information added for Michigan and Oregon.
  18. Does anyone else watch the Tour?
  19. I think I really need to get this book. His other tome regarding Hunterdon was fabulous with information and leads to more.
  20. Snell's book on Warren and Sussex Counties

    I found a used book today and ordered it.
  21. Johann Peter Dunschman, solved

    I have been in the genealogy hobby for a fair amount of time. The one person I have struggled with, the so called "Brick Wall" has been Dennis TInsman Snr. This was the furthest back in that line I had been able to trace. While it was a distant relative, I always wanted to solve another step or two and be able to say who my German relative is and where he came from in the homeland. Today I feel confident about my decision in saying that Dennis Tinsman Snr, Sussex County NJ, dies in 1818. His father, Johann Peter Dunschmann, Sussex County Nj, dies in 1806 are father and son. Peter's other son is Christopher TInsman, dies in 1821. Within the next weeks I will also be able to put more descriptive insight into the family happening that occur pre 1830 in New Jersey and some in Pennsylvania. This family line has been a great challenge to me, but........ I AM DONE!
  22. Johann Peter Dunschman, solved

    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.

  25. Welcome to Anchorage Borough

    We created this page to generate county information for each of the states. Our team is engaged in building out many portions of GoAncestry, including establishing these county pages. In the near future we will create content to populate the page, sharing genealogy and history information for this county. We have plans to add our library records containing Books, Newspapers, Photos, Postcards, and other materials. Some of these items are being made available in case they are family heirlooms and we can get them back to descendants. Others will appeal to those wanting assistance in finding a record or entry for their ancestors. We will perform "lookups" as time permits. If you wish to donate some time to assist with these updates in a state/county, please reply to this message so we can get you started. If you have any suggestions for content or basic input on the website, we would love to hear those as well. We would be happy to incorporate your ideas. As we continue to add content the page should become more useful in your research, please check back soon!
