If you have been keeping up with my blog, then you will realize that I have had to start over completely with my research. Due to my not paying attention and letting my website hosting go unpaid, I lost everything I had on my site and I’ve got so many GEDCOM files that I really don’t know which one to use to start with.
I have decided to just start typing a new database in my Family Tree Maker. My biggest choice was to decide which way to go. Should I start with my maternal side or my paternal side? Should I start with my grandfather or grandmother on that side? It’s a lot to decide. Well, I think my latest discovery has made that decision for me. I am going to start with my Stevenson side.
My maternal grandmother’s maiden name was Winnie Ida Stevenson. She is the daughter of Emmit Johnson Stevenson and Nettie Eudora Freeman. I’ve got quite a bit of research already on this side and it should be fun adding it all to my new database! The interesting thing about this is that I was so upset when I was in Texas because I was so far away from all the places where my Stevensons came from. Now, I am not that far away at all!
I’m in North Carolina now and most of my Stevenson ancestors are from South Carolina and Florida. That is not very far away now!
So, in the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my information here on the blog. I’ll post obituaries, marriage info, tombstone photos and more. I will also pose some questions to everyone as I run across areas where I need help.
I hope you all will continue to visit and will enjoy the new info I will have to share!
Have a great week!
