I've always had in interest in "where did I come from" since about the age of 12. I grew up in Goshen yet, when I asked my teachers how to go about tracing my roots, none ever mentioned the existence of the Orange County Genealogical Society. My interest in genealogy was re-fueled when I was given the 1850 bible of my husband's great-grandparents. His 3rd great grandfather is buried in what used to be a family cemetery that is now in someone's back yard just up the road from my home.
I tend to wander cemeteries while looking for the various lines I work on, and am now snapping up photos here and there and posting them on find a grave.
Anytime I look at obituaries, I look at every one that is listed on the page. I then will add those individuals to find a grave if they are not listed. My most recent ones come from the now defunct Newburgh Evening News. Since there is no copy and paste feature, I re-type the info to find a grave. Please let me know if there are typos I need to fix.
