Mayflower Families

Randy Seaver, a fellow genealogist in California, has posted information about a very informative website on the Mayflower families. If you have ancestors that came over on the Mayflower, you will surely find something of interest here. I have been looking for a couple hours and have covered a very small percentage of the information at this site.
Happy Hunting !

Genealogy Gold Mine Found in Largo Closet

Just in case you missed this story in Tampabay.com or Dick Eastman's blog I thought I would post it.

The article talks about the 64 notebooks chronicling the 6733 births attended by a Tampa midwife at the turn of the century. The notebooks had been filmed by the LDS years before, but for the first time they have now been translated.

Read the amazing story of notebooks and the midwife by either using the hot link in the title of this article or by copying and pasting the URL below.
