Thank you for your posted information.. there are many common names in my database. Would you mind sharing your sources for 2 people? Joseph Charles Lantz (1898-1923) & William Howard Lantz (1903-1923). Thank you.

Greg, I just found your new web site after the original Rootsweb one disappeared. You have a lot of people on my maternal side. We are also cousins of some sort on my paternal side ... you have Corkum's in your maternal side (Whynacht/Baker/Payzant/Hiltz/Corkum)

I have a question (which may not have an answer) but I notice like many trees out there, your format shows the tree information but does not show any sources. Presumably whatever desktop software you use would have your sources. I use MyHeritage Family Tree Builder and their web site version does include all attached sources for anyone that I post. The unfortunate part of that is their trees are hidden behind a paywall available only to MyHeritage paid members unless you know the direct link to the tree (which for that reason I post on my personal web site). I've been now moving some of my stuff onto WikiTree which is easy to find and also has all the sources. Anyway after all this ... here's my question.

Johann Adam Michael ROTHENHAUSER (#P1177) was my maternal 6xGGF. You have full information on him ... birth, death, spouse, marriage, children. I'm wondering what you have for a source for any of this data. I'm doing OK finding stuff after his son came here from Germany but how to find anything before that is a mystery. Anything that I add into my tree I like to be able to independently verify and not just say I found it on another tree (which as you are aware may or may not be accurate.) When I started my paternal genealogy back in 2016, I found Gail Facini Edwards' old database with thousands of Lunenburg County names and dates but no sources. About 5,500 of them were related to me so I dumped those into my software and then started researching them. Nearly up to 20,000 people now and I'm still fixing mistakes in those early ones and deleting some that I can't prove were related. So I get leery now about just accepting somebody else's data unless I can somehow independently verify it. No offense intended .... looks like you've done a lot of great work there. And I do find other trees very valuable ... they often give me names to hunt for that I didn't previously know about.

In regards to the memorial for Jane Cecilia Slaunwhite Heisler #184412613 there is a photo posted. Would the girl in the photo be that of Jane?

Good Day,

I am looking for sources to show that the parents of William Charles HARTLEN (b.1830) were John William HIRTLE and Anna Susanna JOLLIMORE as per . Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Wow! What a ton of work. Came across your site awhile back. I was able to search my family all the way back to France, as well as parts of my mother's side. Through your work, I discovered my wife and I both had ancestors arrive on the Speedwell at the same time in 1752. She's from Port Medway as well... Burgess and Baker clan. Amazing job!

I found your web site very useful a few years ago when I started compiling my Rhodenizer tree (my mother's ancestry) although I decided after about 1,200 names to stop and concentrate instead on the Corkum tree (up to 13,700 there now and still a long way from complete) as it was too much work trying to do both. I see you've updated it since with some more information so maybe I'll have a chance to get back again.

Greetings. I have been researching my birth mother's family (Whynott or Weinacht) and have found so many helpful websites like yours.

Thanks for the very thorough website. Still looking for more answers to Atkins and Foster, both relatives from way back. Visited the Port Medway cemetary many times but not sure who is who yet. Will keep researching.

Thank you

Hi, Blair: I have used your website a lot since I started researching my family history. My maternal Grandfather, was named Wentworth Benjamin Tanner, born Cape Breton.He was a soldier in the C.E.F. There is a gap in his story. I can't find him on the Canadian 1911 census. He was born 1890 in Louisbourg. Were institutions such as hospitals, prisons etc. included in the Canadian census. Fantastic website. Cheers! Bill.

My maternal grandmother was Ida Mae Whynacht from Halifax/Liverpool area depending upon which census you look at. A large family I'm told. I'll be in NS in July and would like to see the area where the family might have lived and/or meet someone who knows about that family. We're talking turn of 20th century. She and a brother emigrated to the US around that time and lived in Connecticut/ Massachusetts. Ancestry has provided some info but it is with a relative in Maine. Any help?

I am attempting to sort out the people in the obit. for Susan Venetta Baker. Her obit. mentions a step-sister, Selig. My grandfather and great-grandfather were from Voglers cove and were Selig by name. I am trying to determine if the person in the obit by the name of Selig has a connection to me. Perhaps you can help.

Hi, Blair: I didn't know you had a genealogy website, but saw your post on Facebook. My brother introduced me to myheritage and I have been adding grandparents, great grandparents, etc. to it since May of this year. I will definitely be using your information to fill in the missing people. But I'm only interested in tracing my ancestors back through direct lineage (great, great, great ....) as I find doing anymore is a bit overwhelming for me. In the future could I contact you for any pictures you may have of our common ancestors? Thanks so much, your cousin, Shelly.
