My new lecture went great in Shelby County. I let the audience participate in solving a genealogical problem caused by conflicting information by using the Genealogical Proof Standard. I think it helped them understand the GPS better and they had fun participating. Union County has invited me to do this program for their chapter in 2016.
I will be speaking this evening, Oct. 13th, 2015 for the Shelby County Genealogical Society in Sidney, Ohio at 7 p.m. They have a new genealogical center that I haven't seen yet so I'm excited to be speaking in their new home. Nice group. I've spoken for them many times. So many, in fact, that they told me they wanted me to come and speak but they've heard all of my lectures and when was I going to create some new ones. So, to my friends in Shelby County, I've prepared a new one just for you (and anyone else who'd like me to present it to their groups). It's called "Where's the Proof?" and is about using the Genealogical Proof Standard. Hope to see you there!
My mom has not gotten any worse so I've decided that it's time to start speaking and doing things again. I'm taking bookings to speak for the remainder of 2015 and scheduling for 2016. Click on Lectures and Speaking Schedule for topics and available dates. Please contact me to schedule me to speak for your organization. Thanks.
My friend and colleague Cindy Freed, who writes the Genealogy Circle blog, asked her readers to send in information on their Civil War ancestors. I shared info on my great grandfather, Francis O. Cheney. Here is the link if you would like to read it. I hope to submit stories about some of my other Civil War ancestors to Genealogy Circle. There is also a post here on my blog about Francis's wife, Martha Jane Uncapher. It is under the Women's History category. http://www.genealogycircle.com/2015/08/22/civil-war-saturday-a-soldiers-story-francis-owen-cheney-co-b-192nd-ohio-volunteer-infantry/
Due to illness, my mom's health situation, and a lot of other things that have been taking my time, I haven't been posting on my blog very often. Please bear with me. I hope to be posting again, at least weekly soon. Also, I am going to be doing some updates and revamping the website so be on the watch for those changes and additions. Thanks for your interest.
For years, I have been trying to discover who Mary Goldsberry's parents were. Mary was Eliza Jane Dobbins Carder's mother. I think I may have found a clue about which Goldsberry family to which Mary belonged. The only problem is that the parents of the possible relative of Mary's are also unknown.
I'm trying to find out the relationship between Lucretia Goldsberry who married Eli Bolin in 1816 in Ross County, Ohio and my 3rd great grandmother, Mary E. Goldsberry who married William Henry Dobbins on 7 August 1828 in Ross County, Ohio. She later went to Pickaway County, Greene County, Miami County and Champaign County where maybe she had other Goldsberry relatives.
In 1850, Mary Goldsberry Dobbins' daughter, Eliza Jane was living in the household of William P. Boland (Bolin) in Xenia, Greene County, Ohio. William was the son of Lucretia Goldsberry and Eli Bolin. This seems to indicate to me, at least, that Lucretia and Mary must have been closely related. Can anyone help with this?
