Default Re: Genealogy trip

I so glad you got to see Oregon, I miss it so much Nat, did you go thru Bend or Prineville or were you more east towards Burns or Joseph?

I did my tree years ago gee about 30 yrs ago, i look on the ancestry board when I get an email (i don't pay for it), funny how the name spellings got changed.

We went up through Burns, spent a night in Prairie City (does that sound like a TV western town or what?!?!?), and then were mostly in the Pilot Rock area, just south of Pendleton. My husband's great grandfather lived southeast of Pilot Rock up in the mountains between there and what was Albee and his land was the site of a major battle during the Indian War of 1878.

Years ago my sister and I took a trip through Joseph. The lake there is the most incredible textbook definition of glacial geology. You could skip the class and just take a trip there and learn it all.

Isn't it weird Dolly how fluid names used to be? I wouldn't think of just changing the spelling of my name but people in the 1800s did it all the time! Sure makes the research more challenging! I get really caught up in the search, the detective work and stringing together little clues.

I loved Joseph, I could not get over the really dark purple lilacs, I have never seen them since.

Yes it is fun the detective work, I had to call up some of great aunts who now have passed, and cousins etc i didn't even know and explain who I was from grandma down.

But when I did it back then the library had all the death notices on microfilm what a job that was looking things up, i must hav spent a week at the library, but thats where I was able to get all the relatives names as far back as i could.

Oh I am Irish and German, Irish side is County Mayo and County Cork, I can't think of the German town right now but my great grandfather is buried in a cemetary over there.

Nobody in my family is long off the boat. I think nearly all of my great grandparents were born elsewhere - some Scot/Irish, German, and Czech and one who was all mixed up before they got here... some French, not sure what all is mixed in there.

That's one of the fun things about Jeff's family - his families have all been here in the U.S. since at least the 1700s.

I don't know that I would have wanted to do this stuff pre-internet. It's really cool to see new stuff coming online every day. Much of Jeff's family came from Missouri and they have recently opened up an incredible digital archive.

well i am at a dead end on the irish side i have a great great uncle who came here with my great great grandmother but then went back, i went to Ireland years ago I was on a tour, but ripped all the names out of the phone book and wrote to everyone, never got any replies. Maybe someday, I know he had to have married, most Irishmen do.

I hope to get back to Ireland, but i'd bet it has changed over the past 20 yrs more citified now, maybe someday..
