Recently, Craig wrote about revisiting sites to see if they had anything new. Miriam, Becky and probably others followed suit and made new discoveries. I was re-organizing some of the links on my sidebar and clicked on the one for Silverbrook Cemetery in Niles, MI. And there she was, my great-great-grandmother, who I had only as Mrs. E. A. Graham, was named Elizabeth! Now that I have a name and some dates I should be on my way to learning more about her.
Today I was reading Randy's post about his Smith line in Jefferson County, NY. I started looking at my links to see if I had anything that might help him. The jury is out on that but I while looking for him I found that part of the 1855 census has been transcribed. I found my great-great-grandparents, Michael & Mary Kelly. On the 1855 census they recorded the type of dwelling that they resided in. The Kelly's lived in a log home! I've imagined my New England ancestors and those that moved to New York in the early 1800's living in log cabins but not my Kelly ancestors who immigrated from Ireland, through Canada in the late 1840's!
So I never know what I'm going to find but it has been a great week for me!
I have added a special section of New York links that I have found helpful and I will continue to add new links over time.
