I am an 8th grade history teacher. My students are completing a year long project in which they create a family from Europe and then follow that line through the Civil War. Through these characters that they create, they write journals, letters, etc. commenting on the events that we study in class.
I also want to get them excited about genealogy so that they can research their own families.
Each of my student groups has a family for which they created a family tree. They are very excited about it. However, with the basic service, they cannot print more than chart without being charged.
Does anyone know of any way to get a premium for educational purposes? These kids are 13 years old. My principal said it is not in the budget.
Je rencontre un problème d'impression des tableaux (ascendants, descendants, etc..) et ce depuis que je suis en mode premium. J'ai le message suivant de Microsoft : "My Heritage Family Tree Builder Genealogy Software ne répond pas" Voulez vous fermer le programme ? Je dois fermer sinon cela tourne en boucle mais comme il n'y a pas d'enregistrement des données, je m'inquiète.
Hi! I have been researching my family and its extensions. I need help finding missing connections. I have a Fernande Joseph Hebert 1895 - 1975 (married to Ada Billiot) and a Charles Hebert born 1693 in Pisiquid, Nova Scotia Acadia Canada. There is a lot of emptiness in between them. Can anyone help connect these two men? Any help would be appreciated
I found several records for Hugo Asping. I am not sure what information you have but here is what I found.
1890 Voter Registration- City of Chicago. Born in Sweden living at 92 Van Buren St. Has been in the US for 15 years and 11 months. Gained citizenship on March 28 1884 in Cook County Court.
1900 Census in Chicago name Hugo Aspin born August 1850 in Sweden. He is a "Policeman" and immigrated in 1870. He had been married for 10 years. They were living at 386 W Van Buren St., Chicago. His wife is listed as Nellie being born in August of 1864 in Illinois to an Irish father and French mother. Number of 2, number of living children 2. Daughter - Mary born Dec 1887 and son - George born April 1891.
1910 Census in Chicago name Hugo Asping. Here is where it gets a little weird. He was born about 1851 married to Mary E. I think this is the same family because Mary's father is listed as Irish and her mother as French just like the 1900 census. Living with them is a Mary Stoerger, who is 22 years old and is listed as a step-daughter to Hugo this time (listed as daughter in 1900.) It says her father was born in New Jersey. Mary E Asping had 3 children with only 1 living. They are living at 800 Loomis St.
Hugo Asping died 17 Oct 1913 in Chicago at the age of 63. George H Asping died 1 Oct 1908 at the age of 17.
I also found an army enlistment for Hugo from 10 Sept 1876. It says he was born in Lardrup (I can't really read it) Sweden. I also found an army enlistment for a Hugo Asping in New York from August of 1872 showing his home as New York born in Sweden...same height at the other enlistment 5 feet 11.5inches. He could have possibly been living in New York when he arrived enlisted a couple of times and then settled in Chicago. Don't know for sure if it is the same Hugo.
So it looks like Hugo did not have any descendants with George dying in 1908. It appears they had one other child between 1900-1910 that died per the 1910 census.
I focused solely on Hugo. I believe I did see a Magnus Asping in Chicago but I didn't really follow up on it. If there are other names you would like some help with, I'd be happy to see what I could find.
Dear Merilyn, I saw your request for information on Eliza Catts arrival in Australia, and I think I may have some information on that. Eliza Catt married James Luxford in Ewhurst Sussex and on his death married in 1835, married James Boots.They arrived in Australia as Bounty Emigrants (free settlers) on 7/8/1841 on the "Burhampoota".They brought with them 4 Luxford children and 1 Boots child, a girl Miriam.They settled at Ropes Creek / St. Marys. My ancestor is one of the Luxford children, Harriet Cook. I hope this is of value to you .
I am searching for information for Longoria/Alanis/Cruz. Mainly on these people. Juan Jose Alanis (1811) and Teodora Longoria (1827); Fervonia Alanis and Juan Alnis, Simon Alanis and Gregoria Gonzales, Roman Cruz and Victoriana Cavazos, Ignancio Cruz and Isabel Alanis. Any information is greatly appreciated. My mother was Antonia Rodriquez (1921) I know her father's name was Pedro, but that is all the information I have. Pedro had a sister named Maria Soledad Rodriquez who raised my mother. I have been unable to find any information on my mother. Thank You
