I have been a genealogy addict for more than 20 years. I serve on the board of directors and secretary to the historical society. I work full time and am continually trying to learn new things. I am really enthusiastic about web pages like "Find A Grave" because paying for genealogy research really "ticks me off". We can do so much by helping each other and just getting everything that we can documented and set "free" for everyone to use! I welcome any corrections to my grave additions and will transfer to families. I would love for people to add biographies and personal data.
RE: Amanda Carlson Thanks, Wendy. Yes, that's her death certificate. (I'm not sure why I had not found it before.) It's odd that my mother (Amanda's grand-daughter) did not know this. Regarding the name "John", it's always possible that the informant (an uncle of my mother) americanized it. Regardless of whether it's "John" or "Johan" though, this is the first clue to her parentage that I've found. So -- a great big THANK YOU!
Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not so familiar with PA records. Can you say a bit more about what you mean by "PA Certificate Number 26655". Is this like a naturalization certificate or something? I didn't know that states did that. Further help would be greatly appreciated.
Another transfer and another thank you Hello again Wendy, Thank you for transferring: Enna Grace Lawhead Peasley # 40479391 to my care. She is now connected with her parents, five siblings, husband and six children. I have added a photo of she and her husband and first baby Howard. As I find more, I'll add it to Our shared memorial. With sincerest appreciation, Marcia # 47059326
