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.


  1. Hey Dell! Next time you're going, let me know! I just live upstairs.

  2. I did let you know, plus I posted it on my blog (uh, are you not checking this regularly??).

  5. Well I check this blog lots and I really like all your pics del.
    I will miss you guys this week and hope alec doesn't forget about the gravey on his taters, that could ruin his whole weekend:D Have fun everyone.
    Oh yeah tell brett beth and I thought the b. feast was really great!

  6. Happy thanksgiving del! I hope you have lots of turkey and potatoes. I am in Idaho falls (well out in a big field west of idaho falls) and it is like 15 degrees outside and it is 10am. Beth says it should get as high as 30 today so I am in for a treat. I miss you guys and hope you don't read this like a week late.

  7. Hey Andy,

    Have you talked to Dan yet? You should.

    Yes, I had a delicious turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and butter (no gravy thank you). And a slice of pumpkin pie. I made chocolate cream pie, which I brought one home with me and had a slice of that tonight. I thought it was good. I'm going back over tomorrow night to help eat the food.

    Aunt Marie and Uncle Paul came, which was really nice. It's even colder where they live than where you are, and they haven't gotten their furnace installed yet. Brrr!

    Also, Scott, Jen and Eric were there, which I wasn't expecting, so that was a nice surprise.

    Angela, Brett, and I were all late though. I feel bad about it, but what can you do?

    Make a goal to not be late next year, I guess.

    Well, tell me about your Thanksgiving.
