Hello everyone! MacFive did it! He set us up a place for genealogy!

I am CelticRose, but you all can call me either Rose or Rosemary. I go by both, and I am very excited to be here because this subject is very dear to my heart. I am looking forward to sharing our past with each other as well as ideas on how to trace your ancestry, etc., etc. Let's have fun and enjoy getting to know each other and our dear ancestors!

Thanks Paul for starting this up. This will be a big help to everyone who is searching their family tree.

I would suggest to everyone, that if you are going to post your family tree on here, just post as far up to the generation that has passed away. Most people who are still living don't like to be included on these lists and especially don't wish to see their birthday listed. rolleyes.gif

If your new to researching your family tree, post a question and you can pretty much be sure someone will give you the right direction.

By all means, HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!!!! Sometimes while trying to key in on one bit of information, searching page after page and nothing comes up, it could be for a very simple reason. The information just simply may not exist anymore. Some records were destroyed and your only hope is that you come across some relative you never knew you had that can provide you the connection. That's the fun part.

Thanks so very much Shrule Egan! I couldn't have said it all better myself! I have a lot to learn about all this so looking forward to all the input. My mother is the only one living out of all her relatives, so that will be no problem! rolleyes.gif smile.gif

Thanks again Shrule! smile.gif

Thanks Paul

I'm very excited about this also and am willing to take a chance that some information does not exist any more. Like you said Shrule Egan, that's part of the fun of it.

I am at a few dead ends but I think I just might not have the right Ideas of where to look and will look forward to any advice that I can get.

Slainte

CelticRose,
Congratulations on your role as moderator of this forum!
With some persistence (and a bit of luck), you may able to find more information than you think is possible.
I started just looking for one or two Civil War ancestors, and now have an RTF file extracted from the Family Tree software that is 487 pages long. It is very much a work in progress, and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to finish editing it to the point where I'll feel comfortable publishing.
For all the Braveheart fans, I'll mention just one ancestor--Sir Andrew de Livingston. According to family tradition, Sir Andrew was the Sheriff of Lanark who disappeared about the time of the Wallace unpleasantness. The movie made the mistake of referring to him as Hesilrig, which was actually one of his estates. At an SCA feast Saturday night, I was talking to a lady who was descended from a Wallace lieutenant. A wee bit of irony in discovering quite by chance a descendant of one of the men who was likely involved in the killing of my ancestor.

Thanks Mailagnus! I am all excited cause I left a message on the rootweb.com concerning my family the Whitakers and one of my cousins I never met replied! She gave me some additional information and she needed information from me that I had!

I am going to buy the Family Tree software, probably after Christmas and try to do it right. So far I found that my great...grandfather served in the militia during the Revolutionary war and I have two great uncles who were in the Civil War. Would really like to research them out further.

Anyway, at least I am starting to hear from a distant relative already! That feels good. thumbs_up.gif

CelticRose,
I have a subscription to a Civil War database that has at least summaries of the compiled service records for many Civil War soldiers. I could see what I can find if you want to send me what information you have for your uncles.

Mailagnus that would be great!

The first one is my uncle -- James Sutton, son of Powell Sutton. He was in the confederate army.

The second is my great great grandfather (I thought it was an uncle) -- Silas Whitaker served as 1st Sergeant Company H, 1st regiment Georgia. Fought in the Battle of Atlanta unit called the "Gilmer Browns" named after the governer at that time.

Hope that helps. Many thanks! smile.gif

There are a total of 16 other James Suttons in CSA service--mostly from VA and NC.

I couldn't find a service record for Sgt Whitaker (the database doesn't have rosters for his unit), but I did find a refernence about a book on the "Gilmer Browns" at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...=books&n=507846.

There is also a re-enactor group at
http://members.carol.net/~rickysahn/GSL/gslmain.htm
that you may be able to contact for more information.

I type my reply in the hijacked avatar thread here rather than there wink.gif

Egan, my Gran is the expert on genealogy. I'm interested in it, but a family like mine is not the easiest thing to survey. I'm much rather interested in stories behind individuals, rather than names and birthplaces.

I started collecting those stories and I hope my child will be interested in it as well, because I have to share stories of people which survived History.

Mailagnus! I know that James Sutton was killed during the battle and so it may be the James M. Sutton. Gives me a start. When I looked at my records, his middle name was not present.

My grandfather Whitaker on the other hand, is mentioned on the re-enacters site as 1st Sergeant. And I am going to order the book mentioned on Amazon.com. Thank you so very much. I have a lot more information than I did because of you. thumbs_up.gif

Ooh me too Aon! I am starting out with the names and places and then hopefully will get to the stories behind these characters. I have some already that have been rather interesting. wink.gif

Aon, that's part of the fun of gathering your family tree, the stories that have been passed down about your relatives. When I located my Irish relatives, we sat for hours telling stories of all sorts. We had so much fun that day. I made sure I included all of those stories in the scrapbook of that person on the family tree.

Now, I guess I'm one day early in posting my family tree on this page. When I opened my e-mail today. Another relative tracked me down through rootweb.com. Now, I have about another 30-40 people to add to the family tree. Talk about having a big smile on my face. Still can't wipe it off. biggrin.gif

This is what I mean by keep plugging away. You just never know when someone will make contact with you that makes it all worth while.

Shrule! I can imagine your excitement cause the same thing happened to me today too! A relative contacted me today through Rootsweb.com. I was smiling big too! How far did you say you have gone back in your ancestry?
