Reflecting this Sunday morning.
Reflecting on how someone must be overwhelmed when he finds all the information about his ancestors like Steve Myers.
I don’t annoy people with genealogy and I don’t sell anything like phoney coats-of arms.
The proof of the pudding…
I sent a reply to this post I found last week on Genealogy.com. This message was dated November 17, 2009.
Hello, I am looking for any information on ancestors of Arthur Joseph Myers, b. Nov. 1, 1883 in Waterbury, VT. I believe the family originally came from Bordeaux, France via Quebec, Canada. The surname was changed when they entered the US; the original name may have been ‘LeMaires’ or some variation thereof. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I don’t do this often, but this time I could not resist the temptation since Steve posted this request in 2009, and the Arthur Joseph Myers he was looking for seemed to be a perfect match for Arthur J. Myers the son of Julian Myers and Agnes Lagasse.
I wrote this…
Still looking for Arthur J Myers son of Julian Myers and Agnes Lagasse?
Write to me.
Strangely enough I started this blog in September 2009.
So I invited him to visit my Ancestry family tree to have a look.
Everything about his ancestor Arthur J. Myers is there.
Pretty overwhelming stuff even for someone like me when I look back at it.
I can’t believe I have been researching all these people related to my grandfather Leo of whom I knew very little about until someone sent me this document. That document jump started all that I have been writing on this blog.
This document was just the tip of the iceberg in my quest for other people’s ancestors.
When I dig, I dig deep, and I have not stopped since.
So what’s all this excitement about a man called Arthur Joseph Myers?
Every clue leads to another… and another…
Even to San Diego in the 1920s.
To be continued…?
Of course, if Steve teams up with the A-Team like Sandy, Joe, Fran, Robin, Ed, and Frank did,… and of course Donna and a host of all other people who have been teaming with me since 2009.
