    I am getting into it as of late. Right now I am trying to track down the boat that my ancestors arrived on. There is a center of genealogy here in Utah that is the biggest in the world. It is run by the LDS church and it has so much information you could spend years in there tracking down your family.

    I have census reports and other interesting things that I have found on my family. I’ve tracked down that my earliest relative to come to the united states must have arrived between 1846 and 1849. So now I am going through huge lists of boat names and rosters for that time frame.

    My family lived in Illinois, Nebraska, and Missouri. They were German and were farmers. Turns out a large chunk of my family lived in Gage county Nebraska. If anyone is familiar with the area let me know. I

    This isn’t a thread to brag about my ever so exciting Nebraskan German Farmer heritage, but just discussing a topic I find highly interesting. You really can trace your families’ steps way back. It’s like CSI work or something,.

    If anyone is into this or is working on theirs and needs some paperwork or anything I can probably find what you are looking for in Salt Lake City. Let me know I will be heading that way in two weeks to spend the weekend there.


    I am into genealogy as well...I have traced several branches of my family back to Europe. Let me know if you need anything from the National Archives here in DC...they have all of the census records on microfilm and some ships manifests, etc. The Library of Congress also has a genealogy room that has all kinds of resources...it can get pretty addictive. I work on my genealogy sporadically...depends on how much time I have and if I get motivated to work on it or not on any given day. The Internet is a great resource as well.
    I might take you up on that if I can't find what I am looking for. The resources here are massive as well. I haven't been able to go any further then Germany. Last week I found the documentation of what they changed my relatives names to when they came here. So I just barely got their real German names, I have to do some work on that.
    Del what part of Utah are ouy in I thought that you were in SLC I am headed up there in like 3 weeks but if you are taking names for search I would like to know about my family maybe I can get in touch with you or cajun and find something out about my family
    I live in Clearfield. It is about 20 minutes away from SLC. If your coming up here get a hold of me. Also if you want you can PM me info you want researched.

    Congratulations, genius! LOL


    I also have an Italian ancestor...my great-grandfather emigrated from Italy to New Orleans in 1880...many people don't know that before the mass immigration of Italians into NYC, most of the Italians that came into the country came through New Orleans...that explains why many people from parts of New Orleans sound like they are from Brooklyn...it's the Italian influence!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I'm not really into Genealogy too much.. But I checked out my family tree once.. I guess my ancestors arrived in the US from Finland around the 1840's.. It's kinda got me interested in checking out more but im way too lazy and don't know how to track this kind of thing

    I tell you what man, get any info you can now from relatives. Get stories get dates anything. I wish I had talked to me grandfather more about his family.

    Even if you don't do anything about it maybe you will find the info years from now and find it useful.

    I have some stories my gramps told me of the dust bowl during the depression and how hard life was in Nebraska. I have his football letter and his leather helmet too.

    Important info would be names and dates , locations.

    The most important I have found aside from the name is the birthdate. The rest is pretty easy.

    Yah, the only info I have is from a family tree.. Mostly because both my grandfathers are deceased and one of my grandmas has no idea where she came from.. She was adopted and never found out who her parents were.. She was told she is swedish and thats it.. My other grandma is 100 percent finnish.. My mom tells me im about 80 percent finnish maybe.. But I don't see how that kinda thing works
