Worldwide Genealogy ~ A Genealogical Collaboration

GLOBE+wwg+MINE_edited-5When I heard about the new blog Julie Goucher, of Anglers Rest was starting in 2014, that would be a collaboration between bloggers around the world, it struck me as an interesting idea and I wanted to take part. While it hasn’t involved a lot of collaboration, beyond sharing posts on the same blog, I have gotten some interesting ideas for posts from what other people have written.  These are links to the posts I have written there so far.

  1. Hi, I’m doing research and am looking for a Louis Cleage that came from Kalamazoo and attended the University of Michigan around 1940, I’m not sure if his name would be spelled Lewis or Louis and if he has any relation to this family but I am assuming he was probably brothers with Albert Cleage Jr. but have not been able to find any information on him because most of the Cleage family history I have seen so far is dominated by Albert Sr. and Jr. Can you help me?

      1. Yes, I have been doing several searches within this site and google but most of my findings revert back to Albert Sr. and Jr. or give me information I have already found which is very limited to short listings of names, a family portrait and vague statements that talk more about the family as a whole but nothing specific about Louis, thank you for the interest and hopefully your help!

        1. There are specifics about Louis. They may be included in an article with information about other family members or they may be specific to him. There is information about his highschool years, about his interning, about what he was doing in 1940 and 1950 etc.

  2. Hi, Kristin. Your posts are very interesting to read. I just got back 23 and me results and it stated that my mtDNA was also L3e3b. I kind of understand what it was describing, but I was searched the web to find more info on that haplogroup. Well, I stumbled on your blog and it is very interesting, and nice to read. I wish I had the time to do my genealogy. Maybe I will one day.

    1. Don’t wait until later to ask the elders in your family what they remember. Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, anybody who is still around to ask! Do it now. It can form the basis for future research. Also, if you have unidentified family photos, try and get someone to identify them for you, including family friends and extended family and relationships. Find out names of your elder relatives parents, grandparents, siblings etc. There are family and individual sheets you can download from the internet, get them to fill them out. Get people to tell you about their lives – childhood, games they played, work etc. You may not have time to do research, but all the above is an all important base to build on.
