Are You My Cousin?: Just One Big Logic Puzzle

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Just One Big Logic Puzzle

At dinner the other night I related a genealogy puzzle I was working on that day. This particular puzzler involved my great x 3 grandmother Joanna Barrett Wilmoth from Surry County, NC. I am currently trying prove her maiden name by tracking down her marriage record and/or a record of her in the 1850 federal census. My son looked up and asked, "So, genealogy is just one big logic puzzle, huh?"

I could not have said it better.
