This old is new(s) to me


Just a quick blog today,

I finally have some time and enough finances (making my money work for me, not the other way around, is working well) to continue paying for, for the “world” membership — and Fold3 and Newspapers were included. Great value and already I have found documents I didnt know existed.

During the move, it has been a good source to have Ancestry and My Heritage websites, to keep our families ancestral lines there and gather more information. Yes, I still have nearly everything genealogy stored away still.

For example:

I knew my dad was not allowed in the military. I was told, it was because he was the youngest of many brothers who were already enlisted.

What I did not know was that my dad had registered to fight for our country.

Fold3 had the copy of his registration card.  Yes it was his, my dad has a very distinct signature.

Interesting what one finds after a little breather.
