Seacoastonline.com, a online news source, ran an interesting article today showing how genealogy detective skills can be useful for all sorts of things!
It's all about a ring that was lost many years ago on a beach. Danny Hall from Salt Lake City is called "The Gentleman Genealogist." He managed to track down the descendants of the ring owners from a small inscription on the ring, "CCD to MAL Dec. 25, 1880."
His awesome detective skills led to a marriage of Charles C. Dixon and Maranda A. Lewis with a marriage day of May 12, 1881... and then traced down the descendants, who happened to be joined together for a family reunion in New Hampshire.
So keep up those skills, no telling where they can take us.
Thanks for the tip of this great news story from @marianpl on Twitter!
What a crazy coincidence! I just logged into ancestry.com to work on my tree, phone rings and it's a happy tech person to see if I need any help with anything, and asking how my research is going.
Sounds like those guys as ancestry.com really love their jobs. Of course, when I think about it, why not?
Our conversation made me really think about what an amazing resource genealogists have in the internet... the unprecedented access to information and records is part of what is causing the huge boom in family research. It's growing so fast and so huge it is really like an explosion of information, all making us see how linked together we really are.
What was really cool is that my tech gal had heard about Abbys Buy Sell Genealogy! The genealogy world is really connected!
