In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

More genealogy success!

I went to the BYU Family History Center today for about 3 hours. I just researched Wingerters and their descendants. The easy stuff is now pretty much done. If I want to find anything more, I'm going to have to dig deeper. Mom and I are thinking about going to the Family History Library in Salt Lake during the Christmas holiday. I have some sources to check for the Dellitt line I've been researching, but it would be good if I could go prepared to do more research on the Wingerters. I need to find out which port John Wingerter and his mother and sister came through and what ship they came over on. Hopefully that will also give me the port they left from in Germany. I did do research on this some years ago with no luck, so I'm not particularly hopeful. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess. Anyway, if you want the information on our relatives that I found today, leave me a message letting me know you're interested in it and I will get it to you.

Genealogy at the Library this Sunday

I just wanted to let you guys know that I will be going to the BYU genealogy library this Sunday, in case anyone wants to come. I will be working on the Wingerters, but let me know if you plan to come and what line you want to research, and I will be happy to bring information on that line. The library is open from 10-7, but I will only go for a few hours.
