Are You My Cousin?: Musings on a Wednesday

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
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!

Musings on a Wednesday

I have recently returned to running.  During our very hot summer here in the south, running was definitely not something I looked forward to.  (Okay, I had a lot of other excuses as well!)  Anyway....I'm back to running.  Running/walking to be more exact.

What does this have to do with genealogy?

I find when I run, my thoughts often drift toward my genealogy research.  Usually to a "brick wall" in my research.  Often I come up with new ideas for research when I am running.

A different database to check.  

A new theory - Jesse Haley might have gone by his middle name sometimes.  Brackett Owen and his son-in-law Jesse Haley may have left the area (Halifax County) only to return back.

New blog posts  like this one.

I'm hoping running will get me and my genealogy into shape.
