I am the youngest grand-daughter of Murcel Dolbell Liston. I recall growing up with the middle name spelling to be "Dolbell" (however this seemed to be unclear as to its certainty). On Family Search I find that there are many misspellings of his middle name and I would like to find clear documentation that states how it is correctly spelled. I've searched for birth register's (but have been unable to locate him) and would like to find a source that would come from his parents. All "Dolbell" ancestors are listed as spelling their name "Dolbel" (in Family Search) which is also different from my understanding. I would like to correct this but want to prove my spelling with documentation that would have come from a certain source.
I've tripped across your genealogical data for Spettel family from time to time, and often see (or maybe EVERY time in YOUR databases as opposed to other organizations' data) that
with father Charles Paul Spettel 1860-1924
and mother Anna Bartl 1865-1924 .
and a son Marcus J Spettel 1898-1990 and no other children,
when Charles and Anna actually had ANOTHER child
a son Frank Joseph Spettel 1897-1990 . I.e., Frank was born before Marcus.
When your entry for Charles and Anna say "Marcus and no other children" you're leaving off Frank.
I suspect that Marcus's 19-year census reports are a little more stable over the years than Frank's, Marcus with no issue, and very little moving (maybe while off at college one time, with just about all his life in LaCrosse W.I)
Frank was in the Army from 18 or 19 years old, for 29 years, and was always somewhere else, and with 4 kids sprinkled out -- 2 in different places in the continental US, and 2 born around the Pacific Rim, when the census canvasser showed up.
Since I think the 1900 census has both the boys reported, I'll be interested in how so many of the copycat trees miss Frank. And/or who copies from whom...
Is there a wildcard character on this web site. For example, I want to search on Savage but don't have the exact spelling for the Ellis Island documents. I want to searach on Sa% to pull up all of the last names that start with Sa. Can anyone help?
I've come across an interesting situation recently. A branch of my family came from Dölitz, Kriese Pyritz, Prussia. This is one of several Kriese that were moved to Poland in 1945. By Googling I was able to find that Dölitz is now Dolice, Poland. How should I go about listing this in my family tree? Currently I have Dölitz, Pyritz, Germany even though I know Germany wasn't a country at the time (1790s to 1830s). Any thoughts?
I am doing research at a location that does not have internet access. Entering info by hand on forms is tedious and I cannot find a PDF form (to download) that allows me to fill in info (while not online) on my laptop. I have Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.1.0 and Reader 11.0.7. Thanks for your help!!!!
I was wondering how would I find out whether there are any live relatives living in Poznan or Warsaw now?
My family tree starts from Victor Pawelski born circ 1770.Then Lukas Pawelski, a farmer of Poznan (Gross Drammer) born about 1811. Lukas and his brother Valentin sailed on the August to Port Adelaide, Australia arriving 17th August 1856.
My father was Thomas Leo Pawelski and his father was Thomas Joseph Pawselski born 3 September 1872.
If anyone can give me some clues as I am visiting Warsaw and Krakow in June and Poznan is not too far from Warsaw.
