I am researching the ancestry of my mother’s four grandparents: Russell Earl Darling, Eva Louise (Murdock) Darling, Miles Edward Baldwin, and Bessie Blanche (Martin) Baldwin. I also work on my father’s family who are MacLeods and MacLeans from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, but much less so, because it’s not close by, and they all have the same names. And I mean all of them.
My mother’s family arrived in southern New England almost 400 years ago and never got far, since we’re still here. This blog will contain some of our stories, problems, research experiences, questions, and mysteries as I pursue the search for those that came before us. I am very grateful to everyone who reads the blog, it really keeps me going! Thank you!
I have been in genealogy for about 6 years now but it’s a serious hobby for me, not my job. I don’t take clients and all I’m able to offer to the people who write to me is cheerleading as you pursue your research … I am not able to actually do any one else’s research for them.
If you are related or just interested in the same genealogical questions, please be sure and leave a comment or email me directly from the link on the sidebar.
