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. 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. Feel free to comment or offer tips and advice. thanks!
