Family History Trips

Family History Trips

FarmhouseThere are lots of interesting places to take the children these days. Especially for genealogists who have traced their ancestors back in time to forgotten places. It is possible to find the actual site of the old home place with the help of deeds, plats and county maps. The DAR has marked many old graves. Church yards and cemeteries hold an abundance of history. Instead of visiting National Parks and the plantations of wealthy planters, why not take the children down an old country road and reveal some 
of the struggles of emigrants and early settlers who prepared the way for future generations?

A Brave Irishman of Kennesaw

James Alexander Reid, Brave Irishman of Kenmore

Kenwood"With the passing of Mr. J. A. Reid of Kenwood on February 15, 1937, we, the members of the Fayette County United Daughters of the Confederacy, were deeply saddened because he was the last veteran of the county who had fought in the War Between the States. Last year, Mr. Reid gave the following memoir of his war experience to be kept in the files of the chapter: I entered the war six months before I was sixteen, in response to a call made for volunteers between the ages of 16 to 45. I volunteered to go, was accepted and went first to Lovejoy, then to Savannah, where I joined the Siege Artillery. Our company made up at Thundebolt, and we left for Dalton, Georgia. From Dalton we marched to Franklin, Tennessee where we had a skirmish and won. From Franklin we went on to Nashville. I was in two battles. The Battles of Cheatham's Hill and the Battle of Kennesaw. During the Battle of Kennesaw there was a fellow named Tom Cook who was killed right beside me. I was not in the Battle of Atlanta.

Transcribed Genealogy Records are nice, however .....


Transcribed Genealogy Records are nice, however ....

If ever we are to find the ancestors, we must examine original documents. Errors are made in transcriptions which could throw us off for years. The census is an example of faded pages and misspelled names. In the old days when microfilm readers were the only hope, it was extremely difficult to discern ages and places of birth. However, the new scan pro readers on the market today (available in regional libraries) use Windows 10. This means that the IT of our own computers are now reading previously indistinguishable records!

Memorials for History

Memorials

Robert E. LeeThroughout history, statues, plaques and other memorials were erected concerning people and events. Lest we forget. Because we will forget. Time will swoosh past the generations and deliver the next set of faces upon the landscape every 33 1/3rd years. The monuments serve to fill in the gaps which schooling neglects and help the new faces to explore somewhat into how things were. Because a true study of history reveals that "nothing is new under the sun." Everybody tried it. Everybody did it. In order to keep from wasting our time and not bring upon ourselves trouble, we need to know the results of what was tried before.

Every Revolutionary War Pension has a Story #georgiapioneerscom #gagenealogy

Every Revolutionary War Pension has a Story

Revolutionary WarAs the soldier tells his story of the events which occurred during the fight for freedom, he assumed that everyone knew the details of the battles, and its officers. In those days, they did. However, we can still learn about his exciting adventure. All that the genealogist need do is to review the historical accounts of the battles and follow the Generals and other officers under whom the ancestor served. In other words, the historical research of its leaders will not only provide a plethora of exciting battles, but also pinpoint dates and locations which the ancestor shared. That information will help to tell the story to the children and preserve the American heritage.
