See the scheduled tracks:


I’m personally torn between “Advanced Genealogical Methods” which has homework elements to be graded and “Advanced Research Tools: Post-War Military Records” which is a topic of particular interest to me at the moment. It is likely to be a last minute decision for me 😉

Where You’ll Find Me

Tuesday morning I’ll be in Charleston working on that narrow range of birth records between the end dates of Ancestry’s ” South Carolina Delayed Births, 1766-1900 and City of Charleston, South Carolina Births, 1877-1901″ collection and the start of state recording of births in 1915.

Thursday I’ll be at the Archives in Columbia research for clients focused on Fairfield and Edgefield/Aiken counties.

Friday you’ll find me both at the Family History Center and the South Carolina Historical Society reading room on a challenging Charleston case.

Happy Hunting!

    I am trying to find the faethr of my great-grandfaethr. After a recent Y-DNA test, I have uncovered that my great-grandfaethr was not the son of the (supposed faethr). His name was, Frank Martin , Illegitimate son of Mary Emma Martin b. June 16, 1875 in Canaan, Maine. Mary Emma Martin married two years later to a recently widowed 65 year old man. Is there any possible way to find my biological great-great grandfaethr, or must i give up my research Thank you again
