iPentimento Genealogy Search Quick Tip

Surnames Search

This shows a search in Ancestry, but try it too at any genealogical database like Family Search, Rootsweb or even FindAGrave.  Family Search might be a little difficult since they have a set way to do searches with surnames, but Rootsweb will look in any nook and cranny (including archives) for that combination of names.  At FindAGrave, many times the woman is listed with her maiden name along with her married name.

As I noted right before, and on election day, I am eternally grateful to the veterans and *civilians who made it possible to vote in my country.  I am grateful to all of them, past, present and future.
