The pictures in this post were an incredible find. I obtained them by contacting a person who had a family tree listed in ancestry.com. While it was not very complete, it held some information that caught my interest. I sent a request to the tree owner asking if we could exchange information. I believe this is something we all should do as it helps us all in our genealogy research. I cannot understand why some of us are so reluctant to share our information. This time however I hit the genealogy jackpot. I was soon put in touch with Julia, who was the keeper of the family records. She was to send me old family letters, pictures, property transfer…

Old enough to enjoy life, I am a Red Hatter, grandmother, gardener, and amateur genealogist. I am a retired clinical psychologist, master's level, who is disabled with heart disease, but having fun with family and friends. Married over 40 years, I have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. I have learned that grandchildren provide a joy one never knew existed---writing feeds my soul, gardening is therapy, and genealogy research makes me feel like a detective!

  3. Hi Dear Carol, Just after i posted this reblog of another person’s blog post, my computer went on the blink, and I could not get back to it to see how it posted! I am sorry that it is not more completed and self explanatory! this is a post by a friend, fellow blogger, whom I admire greatly. So it is not my family. However, I have lots of Moores, so who knows, may have just not found our connection yet. I thought this article was especially good, and I wanted to share it as much as possible. If you haven’t yet, you might enjoy clicking on the “see original post” at the bottom, it is a great read! Love you, Helen

  4. I so agree with you Linda, about the great story and lesson, I wish I had written it, and that this beautiful family was mine. I “reblogged” this blog because I know the authour, Charles Moore Jr. from New York, and I enjoyed this post so very much. Just after I hit reblog, my computer crashed, and I didn’t even think it had worked! It is not clear who the author is, and I will correct that. I am so glad you read and appreciated it. Charles does a great service for all of us in his blogging/teaching way that I admire. I do have a lot of Moore’s in my family tree, so as you well know, he and I are probably cousins waiting to discover that fact! LOL. Thank you for your constant support, Linda, it is wonderful to know Ai can depend on you! love you, Helen
