You can learn a lot from the great people who post to the Facebook page for FamilySearch. When visiting the page, you’ll see the main timeline; those posts are from FamilySearch. But look in the right column for a hidden nugget: “Recent Posts by Others on FamilySearch.”
There you’ll find people who need help with their genealogy, some interesting tidbits, and possibly some family members too! Here are a few highlights from that section from the last few weeks.
From Jana Stokes: My son just attached a census to his ancestor using his Xbox!!! Anyone else let their kids use Xbox on Sunday? Has anyone’s boy ever tried virtual Xbox FamilyTree attaching parties with their friends? Any parenting heads-ups or recommendations?
From Iain Quigley: Photo of the Harper family in Greenock, Scotland around 1911. Asking for sibling identification help.
From Merinda Hackworth: I recently posted that I was looking for my Aunt Peggy Hamilton Headley. Awesome News !!!!!!! She called me last night at midnight. It was so good to hear from her after so many years. Thank goodness for the Internet and for FamilySearch.
From Joyce McMillan: Hello. Is it possible for someone to translate this document for me? It is my grandfather’s birth certificate. There are also some notations to the side of his marriage to my grandmother, if you can help with the data area and where it is they were married. It appears to read Barano and something that looks like Ca, the date of the marriage, 20 July 1912, which we already knew. Yet when I look up the marriages that took place in the year 1912 under Barano, it does not come up. Thank you for your help. Here is the document page.
