    Hello

    I need some help finding more information on my aunt Eva Baran married to Rene Pidance in Meudon France. A friend just recently found her death notice on your website. She has been lost since the war. I’d love to find out more about her did she have children etc.

    Eva was the youngest born in Theodor and Anna Baran from Nanowa Poland. I have not been able to find either of their birth records. My mother was born in 1923 and Eva was born in 1925. They were both taken into forced labour in Germany and never saw one another again

    appreciate any help cheers

  • Hi Tami,

    We have a group setup for France related genealogy research. I’d suggest joining this group and seeking help there. Here is the link to the group:

    We also have folks standing by to assist. Feel free to book an appointment with one of our France experts via this page: https://go.oncehub.com/ResearchStrategySession.

    Best,

  • I need to know how to report some information that I know is incorrect. My second Great Grandmother, Myra, was born to Eli Goodwin and Susan Nichols. Susan passed away when Myra was 2 years old. She was adopted by Daniel and Mary Nichols. I'm just not sure exactly how to get it corrected.


    Thank-you!

  • Thank you for the question. I recommend that you schedule a time with one of our representatives at https://go.oncehub.com/ResearchStrategySession. They can help you get it all squared away.

  • I came across some profiles that have very specific dates but NO sources.

    they're fairly distant relatives.


    I'm wondering whether Caroline Maria and Maria are the same.

    But no sources or research helps.

  • Also, when I import a GEDCOM From GENI, the men's last names don't come across. DOesn't matter whether I use birth name or last name.

    I suspect GENI malforms the GEDCOM data, but a GENI edit would be a help.

  • "Many FamilySearch representative standing by to help..." or not. Still on hold... Chat not available...

  • I'm looking for any information on my Great Great Great Grandparents, Antone Teodoro Silva and Mary Gloria (Rapozo) Silva. They had a lot of children, my Great Grandmother (Mathilda Grace Silva) being the first (and only one born in Portugal).

  • Thank you for the question. I recommend that you schedule a time with one of our representatives at https://go.oncehub.com/ResearchStrategySession. They can help you get it all squared away.

  • @Prof. Edward W. Hall perhaps you can get some help using the link on @Mitch L Wasden post ^ at the top.

  • I am trying to confirm a family story. I have a letter (see attached) from my grandmother, Lesley Vivian Potter Evans (1901-1996). An older 2nd cousin edited the parts I couldn't read, and added his own comments. I have don DNA testing with Ancestry.com and 23& Me. Only 23 & Me show any Native American ancestry. I would love to identify the Native American relative in my tree. I have a tree on Ancestry.com and https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/LD3L-P5M

    Below is an excerpt from her letter:


    The Odekirk family lived in Pennsylvania. Great Grandfather Odekirk was a ship captain and sailed up and down the Atlantic coast trading with the Indians. He met a chief’s daughter and married her. My grandfather was born to them. How he came West, I don’t know. He met and married Emma McCann and they lived in Utah and Idaho. Emma, my grandmother died when my mother was 15. He married again and raised another family, but I don’t know much about them. He died in Twin Falls, Idaho when I was small. (3) There is extensive and interesting documentation of the Odekirk family. My sis and I went to an Odekirk reunion in Salt Lake a few years back. There is a published genealogy of the Odekirk family dating back to when they came to America – 1600’s. Fairly large book.  I think it is still available. It is really interesting. The spelling has several variations—Oudekirk, etc., but are all from the same roots. There is also an Odekirk newsletter published quarterly that I subscribe.  I’ll take a look at some of the material and see what else about the Odekirks I can find that you may be interested in.


    The Indian Connection: I’m not sure. I’ve puzzled about this myself. Grace showed me a photo of John Odekirk and said that he was ¼ Cherokee Indian, but didn’t say how the connection went. The ship captain-Indian maiden is certainly the story I’ve heard, but could never pin down. We have been trying to figure out the same kind of connection on my mom’s side—even though we have a healthy amount of Scotch-Irish blood, one of my mom’s aunts (on her mom’s side) looked like she was right off the reservation. While my brother Roger and I have inherited the Scotch Irish look, my brother Richard could pass for a Cherokee any day—after a few days in the summer sun.

  • Hello! I’m needing some assistance locating my great grandmother Tressia Gass York. The only records I was able to find was a marriage certificate when she married my great grandfather Edgar York on June 11 1920. Sometime between 1920 to 1930 she passed away (1930 census listed him as a widow). I’ve been searching for a birth certificate or death certificate on Tressia but have not had any luck not even a birth certificate of my grandmother with her listed as the mother.

    any help will be appreciated

    thank you!

    Hi

    I need your assistance in allocating records or Will of John Nxaba(1935-30 October 1905). Even though they used Interstate Law to distribute his Estate, but G. H. Hulett has mention on the documents that I have attached that the Will was drawn up him and it was signed by John Nxaba. This documents came from the Source of South Africa Pietermaritzburg Archives Repository. I haven't had any luck in finding any of those records.

    Hi

    I need some help in allocating the records of Guy Harold Nxaba(1906-1982) I couldn't find them. I was only able find his father's Dyer Nxaba on the Death Notice. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS75-L355-S?cc=2573604&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQPHG-29SB

  • I am trying to locate information regarding my great grandparents born in Mexico, specially in the State of Coahuila, Mexico. Both Ancestry.com and Myheritage.com do not have anything prior to 1800 regarding my grandfather, Juan Jimenez, born in 1800 in San Buena Ventura, Coahuila, Mexico. Is there a specific website that contains information of people born in the State of Coahuila from 1500 to 1800? I was informed by one of uncles that Jimenez' also lived in Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico which is located a short distance from San Buena Ventura, Mexico. Thanks, Tony Jimenez, e-mail: [email protected]

  • I'm having trouble trying to learn the ancestors of 4 people.

    1. James Dunleavy, born abt. 1800, County Mayo, Ireland
    2. Mary McHale, possibly his wife, born 1805, probably Ireland died 1899, NY City
    3. Thomas Allen, born in Ireland, early 1800's, probably father of Annie Allen, 1814-1913
    4. His wife, Annie Scarlett, born in Ireland

    Thanks in advance for any leads you might be able to provide!

  • Bom dia busco dados de meus antepassados, se puderem me ajudar fico grato, pois a busca em cartórios igrejas não tem sido fáceis. Muitos dados se perderam. Tenho informações de que meus antepassados viveram em Estrela do Sul, Araguari, Dores do Indaiá, Indianópolis. A partir dai não tem nada deles, os cemitérios não possuem registros mais antigos. Como igrejas, cartórios de registros de pessoas. Registro de imóveis. Os inventários realizados em 1910, 1931 não possuem dados de suas origens, os cônjuges.


    Bisavôs:

    João Gomes Cursino - nascido em Indianópolis 23-05-1877 - faleceu em 20-04-1935

    Ana Joaquina da Conceição - Nascida em Estrela do Sul - faleceu em 22-03-1931


    Pais do João - Antônio Gomes Cursino (faleceu em 28/07/1909) e Maria Flauzina de Jesus, se casaram às 09 de fevereiro de 1875 na igreja matriz Santana da Barra do Rio das Velhas (hoje Indianópolis-MG.)

    Possíveis pais de Antônio Gomes Cursino, José Antonio Curcino e Cândida Maria de Jesus. Tenho visto que há muitas alterações nas grafias e sobrenomes nos registros realizados pelas igrejas, cartórios. Corcino, Curcino, Cursino, Corsinio e até Corsini. Mas não sei se meus antepassados são descendentes dos Corsinis e Corsinos que vieram da Itália.


    Pais da Ana Joaquina - João Batista dos Santos Brasileiro e Maria José de Jesus. Não tenho os dados deles.


    Trisavós:

    JERONYMO ALVES DE SOUZA - Dores do Indaiá, 9 de fevereiro de 1840 – 12 de novembro de 1932. Casado com FLAUSINA JOAQUINA DE JESUS, Falecimento 29 de abril de 1932. Foram enterrados no cemitério da Zona Rural do Santo Antônio, pertencentes ao Município de Araguari.


    Pais do Jerônymo - Manoel Alvez de Souza - Dores do Indaiá, Nascimento 1807 - Falecimento abril de 1890, casado com Maria Faustina de Jesuz, falecida. Enterrados em Indianopolis ou Araguari, não consegui localizar os registros.


    Avós:

    Antônio da Mota Leite (falecido), nasceu em 17/09/1919, casou-se em 13/09/1941 com Izabel Curcina da Mota Leite, nasceu em 05/10/1920 e faleceu em 23/11/2008. Pais do Antônio, Manoel Inácio da Mota Júnior, faleceu em 26/08/1920, casado com Francisca Lourenco da Silva.


    Atenciosamente,


    Adenilson A.M de Sousa

    Araguari/MG
