Dear Genea-Santa

December 6, 2009

Dear Genea-Santa:

I know I don’t have a lot to show, but I really have been a really good Genea-Girl this year….It was a slow start.

I decided that I want to pursue my certification (CGRS) and possible start researching family histories professionally. I joined ProGen, and the National Genealogical Society. I have used my love for social networks to join Geneawise to learn from others.

I know that there are right ways and wrong ways to research, Genea-Santa…but I believe that networking with other Genealogists is a good way to learn what do to and how to get past stumbling blocks.

I also developed a new non-familial project. I found a photo album from a Knowlton Carson, and am going to be researching that family line. I hope to use him as the basis for my certification. So far I have found his parents, his Paternal Grandparents, his wife, her parents, and his children. I have even attempted to contact both of his daughters and am hoping that they will be gracious enough to let me interview them.

So there you have it my dear Genea-Santa, all I really want for Christmas is an interview with both of his daughters to provide some more clues.

Sincerely,

Staci
