As this blog gets bigger and bigger it will become harder to find things. Therefore for each family group there will be a page listing the blog posts written about that individual and/or their family. As time goes on I will be adding more genealogy reports.
This will make it easier to find the posts and study them and I highly recommend that you do that and not just jump around. Please read the posts carefully it is important. Always feel free to ask me questions and request copies of original documents.
There are three ways to search this blog:
Use the Archive Box on the right side of the blog and find the month and year and click and it will give you a listing of posts written during that time. So if you use the dates below you can find the post you are looking for and see it in sequence. Blogs go from past dates to present so they are backwards from a book.
Use the Search box on the right of this blog to search using key words like a person’s name, the location, topics like Mayflower etc.
Seek out the Categories which I have tried to organize by surname, cemeteries, locations and subjects. The list is auto alphabetical within the grouping, so you need to scroll looking for what you want. There is a number next to the category telling you approximately how many posts that the category. It may not find all references to the keyword you are using, although I strive to be careful and diligent.
Blogs are backwards from a book, so the oldest posts are the first. So you could technically go back to the beginning and go forward through the blog. I strive to do the genealogy in a chronological manner but not always for this is also a story about their lives and family connections make it very complicated. When I start writing about a family, I do a summary post of the family of a specific couple listing their children and then try to follow it with more detailed posts about the children and their families if it works within the concept of the blog. If you see revisiting in the title it means I have found new information or am going back to that person or couple and adding more detail.
This page will be devoted to John and Mary (Delano) Keller and the posts written about their lives. They will be followed by their children’s posts. It will include posts written on my other blogs. See the right side of this blog and scroll to BJ’s Family History Blogs and you will find the links.
Remembering Ohio 2007, July 13, 2011. This is an overview of my genealogical research trip to Ohio in 2007 which concentrated on Keller, Delano, Goss and Spracklin.
I returned to Ohio in August/September 2011 and toured some of the same locations in Ohio like Knox and Morrow County, Ohio and expanded this trip to include Portage and Washington counties. This trip starts with the post “Ohio Bound, The Goss Family Story Continues!“August 13, 2011 and goes to “Reflecting on my Travels in Ohio,” September 25, 2011. There are about 14 posts written describing my trip to Ohio in 2011 between August and September of that year.
