Thanks for the info on the RootsWeb list--I know of the registration, but rarely use any of the Message Boards--and I do not have membership in Ancestry. Because of this, by the time I get back to them (usually over a year), they no longer are valid, but also because of limited time, I rarely refer to them. The list I do use is GenWeb. With many of my other contacts requiring passwords, the difficulty of keeping track of them is high. The queries and online replies do not require a password to read. As long as an e-mail address is included in the reply, I see no validity in requiring a password to answer a query. It may well, indeed, hinder valuable replies. There is no e-mail address for the submitter of this BRENTZ query. If it were listed--as all used to be--the reply would have gone directly to her/him with a copy to the BRENTZ list. Again, thank you for your interest and advice. I began researching relatives over 40 years ago, and became active about 35 years ago. I coordinated and instructed German research for nine years, actually because of my interest in the BRENTZ family. I no longer am active in this, but still feel the need to help those hunting their German roots. The best source I know is that of LDS's Branch Family History Library films. Any who wish to research the BRENTZ family personally (this should also include the WOLFHARDT family) can find them in the Duehren, Baden, church records. These are all in old German & some Latin, so be prepared for translation. Sharon A Huffman
Hi there! Actually, if you're already a registered user or subscriber of Ancestry then you're able to post to the Boards. Same way with Rootsweb. Becoming a registered user is free and doesn't take long to set up, and if you do decide to become a paid subscriber, you can use the same username and password. Hope this helps!

Hiya everyone, After these lists are migrated it is imperative for AOL users to check your spam folders. If you find list mail there then please be sure to CLICK THE *THIS IS NOT SPAM* link to send the list mail to the inbox. It is VERY important to help train the filters and let AOL know that this new server can be trusted. If you have any questions feel free to ask, and we will figure it out together. Thanks for your patience during this migration to the new server, Lainee Denton-Jones List Administrator
Hiya everyone, You should have received an email from Rootsweb by now detailing the fact that they are changing list software and the lists will be migrated over by groups. A-C lists are supposed to be migrated over on Thursday, 17 August. When the lists are migrated you should receive a new standard welcome letter for this list, just like you did when you first subscribed to the list. I am letting you know this so that you don't wonder why you are getting a new welcome letter. As the lists are migrated over, you will no longer have to add the -L when sending an email to the list. You only need to address your email as XXXX@rootsweb.com with XXXX being replaced with the name of the list. If you have any questions feel free to ask, Lainee Denton-Jones List Administrator
All Americans know that this is the time of year when we start planning a huge meal and thinking of family that will be coming. For the next week, I would like to have you think about one or two ancestors, that if you could, you would like to have at Thanksgiving Dinner. Send this to the list, with who they and why you would like to talk to them. It can range from say "I would like to ask them what their mother's maiden name was" or "What made them decide to go from point A to point B". Please create an appropriate subject like prefacing it with Thanksgiving Dinner so that those that do not want to participate can simply hit delete. Have fun! Lainee Denton-Jones List Administrator
Hiya everyone, With Mother's Day fast approaching, I thought we could try something different on the list. Instead of a traditional roll call, how about a Mother's Day feast...what mother in your lineage would you like to have to dinner on Mother's Day? What things would you like to talk about? What questions would you ask? Make sure that the mother you choose pertains to this list. Have fun and hopefully make some connections! Oh yeah, and please remember to change the subject line to reflect the name of the mother so that the other listers don't have to open it if it isn't a name they are interested in. :) Lainee Denton-Jones List Administrator -- No virus found in this outgoing message.

I suggest that everyone post some bit of Brentz information, record transcription, news event, obituary, or other tidbit that may be helpful to your fellow researchers. Look outside your own genealogy. Perhaps you have some records that you transcribed that include Brentz information that is not your own. This would be a good time to share it. Also, this is the *perfect* time to hand off those relatives that you have been wanting to be rid of for ages. :) Perhaps some you unwittingly collected, thinking they may be yours, but discovered were not. Dust them off, wrap them up and give them to your cousins! Tis also a good time for sharing Brentz holiday tales and family recipes. Oh, and feel free to bring along a guest.... pick someone in your line that you would most want to spend time with at a Holiday Party and tell us why. :) Happy Holidays!

Your Grandpa Fought in WHAT War? By Ted Pack firstname.lastname@example.org Late at night, after a day of giving my clients advice they don't take and an evening of giving my teens advice they won't even listen to, I sometimes surf the genealogy bulletin/message boards looking for people who might be willing to take a bit of well-intentioned counsel. A surprising number of newcomers assume that telling the world a person was "my grandfather" pins his birth date down accurately enough to let other people help them. That isn't always the case. Last night my mother came to our house for barbecued salmon. Her grandfather, George Waterman CADY, fought in the Civil War. He was born in 1837, rode with the 10th Missouri Cavalry (Union) and moved to Kansas after the war. He got off to a slow start; he married in 1881 at the age of 44. My grandmother came along in 1892, when he was 55. She gave birth to my mother. Without giving away details of a living person and a dear woman, let us just say she gets a discount in some restaurants if she eats dinner before 6 p.m. She uses the Internet, and, as I said, her grandfather fought in the Civil War. At the same table, passing the lemon dill butter, was my son. His de- tails are private too, but a year or two ago we could get him a discount by ordering off the "Under 12" menu. He uses the Internet; his grand- father fought in the Korean War -- 86 years after Appomattox. Quite a spread. Ours is a rare family due to my great-grandfather CADY marrying so late, but consider this -- most people have their children between the ages of 20 and 40. Genealogy buffs on the Internet can be anywhere from say 20 to 70 years old -- just to keep the numbers even. If you are now 20 and the oldest child of the oldest child, your grandparents could have been born (20 + 20 + 20) 60 years ago, in 1943. If you are now 70 and the youngest child of the youngest child, your grandparents could have been born (70 + 40 + 40) 150 years ago, in 1853. So, if you are posting a query about your grandfather, please -- give the rest of us a clue; at least tell us which war he fought in. ****************************** Permission to reprint articles from RootsWeb Review is granted unless specifically stated otherwise, provided: (1) the reprint is used for non-commercial, educational purposes; and (2) the following notice appears at the end of the article: Previously published in RootsWeb Review: Vol. 6, No. 36, 3 September 2003.
Knock, Knock...Anybody There? Have you ever posted a query on a RootsWeb mailing list and ended up thinking that you are playing genealogical solitaire -- that no one out there has any information or suggestions for you, or that you are the only one left on the planet who is researching your family? Been disappointed because you didn't receive a response from anyone -- not even a suggestion about where you might look to find the information? Take a fresh look at what you posted to the mailing list. Lack of a response to a query often says more about the query itself than it does about those who might potentially read and respond to it. First, consider the topic of the mailing list on which you posted your message -- is the topic one for which the subscribers might be expected to have a connection to your query? Is it a mailing list on which you might expect to find some experts to point you in the right direction or provide you with a lookup for the data you are seeking? Don't expect the list members on PAALLEGH-L (Allegheny County, Pennsylvania) to know the location of a town in Germany, provide you with New Orleans ship arrival information, or to check a tax list in Georgia for you. Don't look for the SMITH mailing list subscribers to answer a question about the JONES family unless you have clearly stated the connection between your JONESes and the SMITH surname. Always direct your query to the mailing list best suited for the surname, locality, or topic about which you are asking. Next, let's examine the subject you have chosen. Um, what do you mean you left the subject blank so that everyone would be curious and read your query? It just doesn't work that way in this busy world where everyone wants her or his answers yesterday. Even the most diligent and attentive cousins might hit the delete key if your message doesn't grab their attention at first glance with an informative subject. Putting a request for HELP!!!!!! and lots of exclamation points in the subject line won't win you any genealogical friends or get your query read either. Informative subjects should be brief but include name of the individual you seek and when and where the person or family lived. "Looking for parents of George HICKENLOOPER -- born 1790 in Virginia" for example. If there is sufficient space include what information you wish to learn about the subject of your query as in this example. It is possible that lack of a subject could even result in your query being rerouted to the list administrator rather than being posted to the list -- are you sure you saw your query come through to the list? If you are unsure,check the mailing list browseable archives: http://archiver.rootsweb.com/ Type in the name of the list (with no -L or -D on the end) and click on the current month and year to check for your message. Now, look at the information you included in the text of your message. While it may be true that being concise is a virtue, when posting a query, your message must also be informative, clearly worded, and precise as to the question you are asking or data for which you are looking. Don't leave the list members in suspense. If you simply wrote "I'm looking for the parents of my g-g-g-grandfather George HICKENLOOPER without providing sufficient information for your potential cousins to recognize whether or not your George and his parents might be included in their files, or whether they have a book or other resource that might help you, they will not reply. If mailing list members do not understand your query -- at a glance -- and can't figure out what you are asking, chances are good that they will simply move on and delete your message, possibly shaking their heads while doing so. On the other hand, don't write a book when posting your initial query. Most people are not going to take more than a minute to review and consider whether your message is of interest to them or if they can help you. Save the extraneous details, which are not directly pertinent to your query, such as how George could still read without glasses when he died at age 97, for follow-up discussions with other interested researchers after you have received the initial responses. What you do want to include in your initial query, in addition to WHO, WHEN, and WHERE, is a brief explanation of what you already know and what you are hoping to learn. For example, you might state: "George HICKENLOOPER was born in 1790 in Rockingham County, Virginia, and married Mary LINGENFELTER in Virginia in 1819, based on church and census records that I found for this couple in Fairfield County, Ohio where they settled by 1820 when their first child was baptized there in the Lutheran Church. I'm trying to learn the identity of George's parents, who are my brick wall." A query such as this might draw the interest of mailing list members who have books on Lutheran marriages in Virginia or other information for the years you have listed, provided, of course, you posted it to VAROCKIN-L (Rockingham County, Virginia) and not to OHFAIRFI-L (Fairfield County, Ohio) mailing list. If you don't know specific dates, include a general time frame to assist those who might be able to help you. Put yourself in the place of the person on the receiving end of your query. Consider what information the readers will need to know to ascertain whether they can help you. Don't put yourself in the position of knocking on the door and finding no one on the other side to answer. Carefully consider the subject and text of your query as well as the subject of the mailing list to which you are posting your message, before you click that SEND button. *********************************** Permission to reprint articles from RootsWeb Review is granted unless specifically stated otherwise, provided: (1) the reprint is used for non-commercial, educational purposes; and (2) the following notice appears at the end of the article: Previously published in RootsWeb Review: Vol. 6, No. 36, 3 September 2003.

Hi, I am new to the list. According to the 1880 Census, my great grandfather Richard Brense? came to the US in 1865. He was born in Feb 1854. The census states that he and his parents were from Bremen, Germany. At the time of the Census, he was living in Chicago, Illinois. He married Sarah Shanley in 1876. The marriage vows were taken at Holy Family Church on May Street in Chicago. There were (2) children reflected on the Census, E.Mary (later called Mayme) 1977 and Adeline. 1879. I have reason to believe that Adeline died a couple years after the Census was taken. Richard and Sarah had (4) more children Addie, Catherine, Florence and Richard.
Hiya everyone, If you have any favorite hints, tips, methods or ideas that you think might help others, share them. These could range anywhere from something you have learned through trial and error to an idea of something you have thought of but have never been able to put to the test yourself because you don't have the tools in your grasp that maybe someone else could actually make work. For me, I was constantly making notes on my copies of stuff I was getting, so I started making 10 copies of everything I got. The original (not necessarily a true original, but YOUR original) was then put up in a folder and the copies were used for notes. I know that most of you have something that works for you, and maybe you thought it would be offtopic for the list...well now you can send it.

Thank You Chris firstname.lastname@example.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For quite a few years I have been trying to find the birthplace of Matilda ALGER. I have her marriage certificate to Edward William WALKER on March 27, 1881 at the Trinity Church in the Parish of St. Mary, Newington, Surrey. She was living in Swan Street. According to the 1881 Census she then lived at 113 Southwark Bridge Road. She was 27 years of age. In the 1891 Census she had become widowed, her husband dying at 32 Sutton Street, York Road, Lambeth in 1889. She had four children, George, Edward, Alice and Louisa. According to this Census Matilda was born in Bermondsey. She was 35 years of age. Her father's name was John ALGER and he was a journeyman bricklayer. I just haven't been able to make any further progress and quite frankly don't really know what else I can do but I am ever hopeful which is why I want to know if there is a website for ALGERS in England. Thank you for your interest and help.
