Genealogy Round Up, January 6

Almost time to hold the wake for that critical 3 years of data.

They Say It's Your Birthday -- But It's Not

The writer told me she was going to mention my efforts in the article, but it would have been kind of her to be a little less vague than "New Jersey-based author of several ancestry books." That said, the coroner, Tom Killian, was a very surprised to hear from me and was a pleasure to chat with. Was also interesting to learn that this woman's great-great-grandson had read the original article, but did not realize his own connection to her.

Can't get enough of stories like this.
