In Search Of… Intrigued? Read on!!

on October 2, 2019

In search of what? A new book to read? Always, but that’s not what this post is about, even though I have been reading many books about what I’m in search of. A missing piece of clothing? Nope. What I’m in search of is more valuable than an expensive house or car, or more valuable than the most priceless piece of art you can imagine.  What I’m in search of has taken me thus far to Ireland, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, and Holland. Can you venture a guess?  Let me know your guesses.  Until next time, stay tuned!

By now you must have guessed that what I’m in search of is my roots.  No, not the roots of my hair (although DNA is involved). I’m talking about searching from whence I came.  I have been bitten by the genealogy bug! At first, the bug bite didn’t bother me so much, as I had made some interesting discoveries rather quickly.  Then the bug just got annoying. Paths I followed lead no where or lead me to places and people that were not a part of my family’s tree.  Records are hard to wade through. By the way, I’m on this search via the Internet and relatives’ recollections.

And speaking of the Internet, a tool you will find helpful can be found here:

Anyone out there on a similar search? I ask only because I’m a newbie, so I’m seeking help finding the missing and obscure parts of my family’s tree.  By chance, do you live or do you know anyone who lives in Massachusetts, specifically Essex County? Could you be my legs, eyes, and ears to help me with my search? If so, please let me know. I’d hire a professional genealogist, and I’ve researched that as well, but the prices that I’ve been quoted are a small fortune, which is out of my current and future price range.

    Bethie the first thing that jumped into my mind was family or family history. But that is probably because I’ve been researching my own recently. I’ll go with it as a guess, however.
