I have been wanting to start a genealogy blog for a while. Plus at the Bay County Genealogical Society’s Spring Seminar, I am going to be doing a segment on Genealogy Blogs so I figured I should have one.
Yesterday on We Tree mention was made of 52 Weeks of Better Genealogy. This weeks challenge is to visit the public library and make a list of all the books that might help you in your research. So I hope to do that tomorrow.
Today at GeneaBloggers is Madness Monday. The ancestor that is driving me mad is the father of Christopher Malachi McGraw (19 Dec 1852 -6 Aug 1933) whose name is not know. Malachi is my great-grandfather and the earliest two records of him are a marriage announcement in a Union County church announcement and the 1880 census having him living in Fish Dam, SC. I have a distant cousin who talked to my father in the 1970′s and my father said he remember’s stories of my grandfather’s about being a witness to the burning of Atlanta when he was a boy. This cousin also believes that the ggrandmother’s name is Elizabeth Dalman, but I have not been able to prove any of this. So I continue to search. I hope to make a trip to SC this Spring and he is the main person I will be researching.
