Have I Reached the Saturation Point Yet?

I have been hitting the genealogy real hard lately. This dawned on me when I realized that I was dreaming of looking up info on the web more nights than not. Do ya think I'm saturated yet?

Here are some of the family surnames . . . do any of you share any of them? I think the worst part of all . . . I have 2-gg grand mothers whose given names are Sarah but go by Sally. I never seem to know which is which when I see their maiden names.

Burson

Bryan

Church

Gaumer

Kirkham
Kneedler
Kreider

Patton

Searight (Seawright)
Snell

York

I have sent letters to 4 relatives who I asked to send me the names and vital stats on their immediate familiess. So far, no responses :0{

But, I "discovered" a cousin whose name sounded like some on the tree Somehow, and I do not know how, I tracked down her last address I sent her a letter and got an email reply within four days. WHOOPIEEEEEEE

Now, to check the mailbox and see if her info has reached me yet

Until later . . . . . .

  1. Wish I did have some similar names to share with you. I did make contact with a 2nd cousin I never knew before so it's really been a fun thing.

  2. None of those last names ring a bell. My Great Aunt was really into Geneology, though. And I "inherited" all her geneology papers/info/research. Although I have NO idea what to do with it, it is interesting to look through. There's a letter in German from a relative. I remember my Grandma showing me the translation letter (which is not in there). Apparently, our family is related to two members of the original Little Rascals; Darla and one boy (I can't remember who but I don't think he was one of the main characters).

    Have you ever tried Ancestry dot com? (You have to pay, but I think you get a free trial period. Maybe you could find something out there?..)
