I'm looking for family members who are decendents of my Great Great Grandfather Bige Pierce who was married to Sarah Elizabeth Lloyd he had 8 children their names are Julia , Cleveland, Oscar, Ella, Walter, Lena, James, and Gexetwin if you have any information on any of these i would greatly appreciate any information
Moja rodzina, jak wiele innych polskich rodzin, na skutek wielu czynników, rozciągnięta jest po całym terytorium Polski - i w tym niema niczego,co wymagałoby wzywanie pospolitego wz-ruszenia. Ale rozrzucenie od Morza / Bałtyckiego/ do Morza / Czarnego/ a także od Morza
Białego /nie na ochotnika/ do innych kolorowych Mórz wokół całego globu nie wyłączając Oceanów z powodu braku informacji pisanej, czy też zapisanej ale nie w języku tambyłych mieszkańców, Wz-ruszenia pospolitego się prosi. Wz-ruszenia do ochrony tego co wybudowano, ale także pamięci o tych tysiącach, którzy nie mieszczą się na kartach historii tak mojej jak i tambyłych mieszkańców. Do ochrony tego co zapisano w starych księgach magistrackich czy parafialnych. Niejednokrotnie jest to jedyny ślad, nie niszczmy tego, ich obecność lub jej wymazanie niczego nie zmienia. Borykam się tym problemem szukając Bańkowskich na Litwie,
i z Litwy przybyłego do USA, Stanisława, Stanleya, chociaż z to kaszka z mlekiem. Moi familianci z Litwy urwali swój ślad w miejscowości ZACHARY, takie miejsce urodzenia z dodatkiem ZSRR miał w dowodzie mój Ojciec, odszedł dużo wcześniej niż jego miejsce urodzenia.
I am looking for more information on my great-grandfather. I know that he was born in Kentucky in 1833 and died in Norwood, Wright, Missouri about 1905. He was first married to Emily LOWERY(sp?), and then to my great-grandmother, Martha COLEMAN. I am looking for any information regarding his parents and/or siblings. I believe (but not proven) that his father's name was Hiram, and his mother's name was listed in the 1870 census as Dicey.
Seeking information on Arlin Horace Fell, born September 11, 1925 in Labelle, Jefferson, Idaho, US. Especially interested in finding military records or information about his service in the Navy during WWII.
Hallo, I am hoping to find anyone of my father's Family. He ran away from his parents and married my mother in Cebu, Philippines way back 1960's from his home town Manila, Phils. He died of heartattack Feb. 15,1983. We wish to complete this Family tree thru this webpage. Thank you.
Michael was born Sept. 13 1880 in Ennis Ireland died Mar 14 1956 in Phila Pa. He immigrated in 1898. I believe his father was Michael Burns and mother was Nora Laughlin. I would like to know more about his life in Ireland. Did he have any brothers or sisters?
HI TO ALL CELARDI... :-)I'M PEPPE CELARDI FROM ITALY(SICILY), I'M DOING RESEARCH ABOUT RELATIVES EMIGRATED IN AMERICA BETWEEN END '800 - beginning '900, WE KNOW ABOUT A BROTHER OF MY "GRAND GRAND FATHER (GAETANO CELARDI)" Called SALVATORE CELARDI SON OF CALOGERO CELARDI, who's never come back in sicily... he was originary from Messina area (cesarò)
DOES ANYONE HAVE any information to share?about him or the family.. thank u :-)
I am new to all this but finding it very intersting and apperciate the community spirit amongst people on here
Taking as an example a child who is the focus of a family tree, the childs unrelated mother and father both appear in the childs tree.
When you follow the fathers line back over 20 generations, and also the mother back over 20 generations you then reach a shared ancestor who appears in both the father and mothers trees, and hence twice in the childs tree. On the basis that all humans are interconnected via common ancestors... IF all family trees could be traced back in the order of 20 generations, then a shared ancestor for a present-day husband and wife would be a relativley common occurance. If trees were traced back further, in the order of 40-50 generations, shared ancestors would be shown to be even more common.
In my example of the child whose parents are "unrelated" (unrelated by usual modern standards of defining relatives) the parents have more than one shared/common ancestor. Assume the childs parents share not only Ancestor X (20 generations back), but also Ancestor Y (30 generations back) and Ancestor Z (35 generations back). So we now have 3 instances of the branches of the childs tree -connecting- at some distant past point (high up in the childs tree).
In other words from the childs father we had split into two branches and again to his two parents, and in turn four branches to their parents (the childs great-grandparents), and so on; and we did the same on the mothers side of the tree, occurances of ancestor X, Y, and Z appear twice in the childs tree, each time on different sides (fathers side, mothers side) of the childs tree.
Question = Is it possible using Family Tree Builder and MyHeritage to show that the two occurances in the childs tree of Ancestor X are linked, that they are the same person. Obviously the two entries in the tree of Ancestor X have the same name and same birth and death dates, but they are meer entry points within a large tree, how is it possible to identify that "X" on one side, and "X" on the other side of the tree is the exact same person, so that a casual reading of the complex tree reveals this fact?
Shared ancestors X, Y, and Z, occurring twice on a tree is just the start of the duplication issue. In turn the parents and grandparents and so on, of X, and Y, and Z will be duplicated on either side, so having a way of directing the flow up seperate sides of a tree back into a single shared point and then upwards through a single occurance of that shared ancestry will reduce enetering on the childs tree multiple duplicate entries of various ancestors.
What is the standard way of dealing with this issue?
I really apprecaite any guidance on this, I suspect that it is a common issue within geneaology and if there is a standard way of dealing with this problem that is not available on Family Tree Builder I would find that useful as it would enable me to avoid mass duplications of ancient ancestors.
Thank you Jak
(P.S. When I search the forums and help pages I find many ways to merge the information and profile data for a person on a new tree where that same person is already appearing on someone elses tree, thats not relevant to my question, that covers sharing reasearch when two trees include one person, my question is about one person, appearing twice in one tree).
I would like to take the time to thank everybody that has sent me information on the family tree's. It has been 2 years & the time is to step back & look into my own tree. I have tried to keep the tree going but it just to much money at this time. It seems to keep adding up instead off some breaks so I think it is time to break free. My wife & I would like to thank everybody & wish you all the best in the new year & have a Merry Christmas with all the family members close by. Agian all the best & please keep into touch you have my e -mail address thanks Again Rick Benzies Canada
