I’ve started making a book on my iPad with pages I’ve bought off Etsy. However I also do my research on my iPad so I was thinking of transferring all my research onto paper first to help me keep everything organized. Any ideas on how to do this? Or examples of how you guys do it? Thanks in advance! submitted by /u/makogirl311 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

So I've really gotten into genealogy lately and my family has two mysteries (see my other post for the first one). The one I'm trying to work through now is my great-grandfather. ​ We have pretty limited information about him. The only facts I was told is that he was from Georgia and died in Boston (or a Boston suburb). I believe he passed in 1929. My grandfather was 4 when his dad died, 15 when his only sibling died, and 17 when his mom died. All of his other family was gone by the time he was in his early 20's. ​ I found someone who I think is my great grandfather, however I'm having troubl ..read more

Great grandmother (b. 1917) Great grandmas sister (b. 1934) marries LWP (b.1931) Grandfather (b. 1935) Grandpa's sister (b. 1937) marries BDP (b.1934) BDP and LWP are brothers. Grandpa's sister and BDP have a son who's a DNA match as a 1-2 cousin for me. Ancestry guesses he's 1C1R. Which does not quite make sense as he is my mother's 1st cousin. But I also find about 3 definitions of 1C1R and need a bit of guidance. I have met this man and can confirm he is my mother's first cousin. She even told me so. (I cannot test my mother or father, they've passed.) We share 5% DNA and 373 cm. He's my c ..read more

This is my second question related to a series of problems I have been running into in my research. Can anyone decipher the cause of death listed on this certificate? The first word seems to read as "chronic" but I'm totally at a loss as to what it might say. The person listed on this certificate is Mary F. Havey, who died in New York in 1911. Here's a link to the document submitted by /u/EmptyPocketWaltz [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Looking for help to find a great-grandfather

Hello all, I've been at looking for my great-grandfather for a few months and have mostly hit a dead end. We know his full name and have his death certificate (passed away in Mexico in 1984 at 101, so was born in either 1882 or 1883). We know all of his children's names, DOBs, place of births, and his wife's name. However, I'm looking specifically for a birth certificate or certificate of baptism from Spain, but don't have his exact DOB nor the place that he was born in Spain. We know he emigrated to Veracruz in the early 1900s with a brother and his dad (his mom passed away in Spain). We hav ..read more

Great-great grandma

Unfortunately it seems difficult to crack my last question but this one should be easier. My great great grandpa, John Ross Meffan (changed to Methven) married Isabella Bell Craig in 1912. She was born 1890 in Scotland. She immigrated to Canada around 1953/1954, with her husband dying 1954. I know that she lived awhile afterward, with my uncle telling me she died in the late 60’s. I believe this to be 1963-1969. She lived in Waterloo Region, probably in Preston. If anyone could find an obit or some other resource, that would be greatly appreciated. submitted by /u/CobraGrunt1983 [visit reddi ..read more

Hello! I'm in dire need of assistance and I thought I could start looking for help here. I'm working on a research project for which I need to consult two issues of Exhibitors Trade Review, a historic magazine established in 1916 and dedicated to motion picture trade publications. Specifically, I'm looking for the June 22 and June 29 1918 numbers. So far, it has been impossible for me to locate these publications online. According to WorldCat, issues of the magazine are kept in four libraries: George Eastman, Margaret Herrick Library, USC and Svenska filminstitutets bibliotek (linked through ..read more
