Please register a like of a vote on the site. http://identifinders.wordpress.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjaman_Kyle For more information see http://identifinders.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/benjamans-23-and-me-matches/ If you have any information on Benjaman, please contact Colleen Fitzpatrick at colleen@identifinders.com or (714) 296-3065. Thanks, Colleen Fitzpatrick PhD Identifinders International Huntington Beach, CA 714.296.3065 colleen@identifinders.com We are asking for help from the public to identify a man who suffers from retrograde amnesia who goes by the name of Benjaman Kyle. We ask you to forward this email to as many people as you can in the hope that someone will recognize him and he can discover his identity. Benjaman was found badly beaten in the dumpster walk-through behind a Burger King outside of Savannah, GA in August 2004. He survived the beating but upon regaining consciousness, he could not remember who he is. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjaman_Kyle for the full story along with his picture. Benjaman's few memories indicate he is 62 years old, born August 29, 1948. We have reason to believe he lived in Indianapolis 954-1963, between the ages of 6 and 15. He recalls many landmarks of the town. He believes he was raised a Catholic but has little knowledge of the Catholic schools there. His next memories are of Boulder, CO starting in 1976 and extending into the early 1980s. He has detailed memories of movie theatres, restaurants, and the University of Colorado at Boulder campus. Benjaman has extensive knowledge of restaurant and movie construction, management, and equipment, so be probably worked in these industries. He does not know how to cook. We have had no luck in identifying Benjaman through fingerprints and dental records. He has taken a battery of DNA tests but has only found lukewarm Y-DNA matches that indicate his family name could have been Powell or Davidson. However if Benjaman was adopted, he probably would not have either of these family names. Autosomal testing has revealed he has ancestry in the western Carolinas, Eastern Tennessee and the surrounding areas of N Georgia, N Alabama, E. entucky. Names that come up among his distant cousins along other lines of his family are Perry, Hooper, Davis, Davenport, Pilkenton (Pilkington), Boggs, Frost, and many others. For more information see http://identifinders.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/benjamans-23-and-me-matches/ Benjaman has received widespread publicity, appearing on the Dr. Phil TV program, and more recently on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. He has been featured in newspapers around the country yet no one has come forward to identify him. We have done limited searches in yearbooks, but not knowing what he may have looked like as a child, and considering he might not have gone to high school in Indianapolis, we do not plan to devote a lot of time to this. Searches of birth announcements, Catholic adoption records, drivers license photos, and other such databases have produced no results. Benjaman does not know his Social Security Number - therefore he cannot get a job, cannot get medical coverage or a bank account. He cannot apply for a credit card. He cannot even get a library card because he does not have photo ID. We are appealing to the public to help us identify Benjaman Kyle. We are certain there are individuals who have known Benjaman in the recent past. We ask you to forward this email to as many people as you can. We'd like to give Benjaman his life back. If you have any information on Benjaman, please contact Colleen Fitzpatrick at colleen@identifinders.com or (714) 296-3065. Thanks, Colleen Fitzpatrick PhD Identifinders International Huntington Beach, CA 714.296.3065 colleen@identifinders.com

    1. [DEVOE] Remembering Our Veterans!
    2. Nena Smothers
    3. Wishing all a great Memorial Weekend! A quiet time to remember our Fallen Ancestors and if you think you have none near you to honour, check the numbers below and bet you can find a cemetery close that will certainly have not just one Veteran you can honour but likely many more. Just look for the flags. Don't forget a Red Poppy! Red poppies are a symbol of consolation. Since World War I, poppies have been a symbol of remembrance at Memorial Day (May 31). The red poppy was used to symbolize the blood of those who died in service to their countries. The idea started in 1918 when American Moina Michael read the poem “In Flanders Fields,” written by Canadian John McCrae in 1915 during World War I. She began wearing poppies and selling them to others, using the proceeds to help veterans. After World War I, veterans sold artificial red poppies to help raise money for French and Belgian war orphans. Today, donations to veterans’ groups are often marked with a token paper red poppy. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row. –Lt.

    1. [DEVOE] Fri-WDYTYA NBC airs Emmit Smiths Ancestor Story
    2. Nena Smothers
    3. Passing this on... Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2010 15:20:44 -0700 Subject: First Who Do You Think You Are? Episode a Success Hello, The tune-in numbers for the first episode of Who Do You Think You Are? are in, and they look promising! More than 6.85 million viewers tuned in to watch the show (including many of you!), making it the No. 2-rated show that hour. This Friday Emmitt Smith This weeks episode is one you dont want to miss. Tune into NBC this Friday at 8/7c as former NFL football player Emmitt Smith sets out to discover his slavery roots. In this episode, look for the Monroe County Courthouse in Monroe County, Alabama, and the Mecklenburg County Courthouse in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. Lisa Kudrow calls Emmitts episode unbelievable and the most compelling of the seven. Last Weeks Episode For those who missed it last weeks episode featured Sarah Jessica Parker, who learns that her 4th great-grandfather John S. Hodge was among the hundreds of thousands who tried to strike it rich by heading West during the 1849 California Gold Rush. Unfortunately, Sarah discovers John S. died soon after settling in El Dorado County, California. Sarah also pays a visit to Massachusetts and meets with researchers at the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Massachusetts Historical Society, who reveal that one of her ancestors was accused of witchcraft in 1692 during the infamous Salem Witch Trials. Luckily, Sarah finds out that the court surrounding the trials was dissolved just before her ancestor was accused, so she was never tried. More about the Sarah Jessica Parker Episode Interested in learning more about how the team of genealogists involved in the first episode located Sarahs 4th Great-Grandfather John S. Hodge? Would you like to offer members of your organization or interested newbies a better understanding of the research process? Take a look: Go-to resources: Census records, obituaries, published histories, more primary records How they helped: Sarah Jessica Parker family tree presented a unique challenge Sarah herself was certain her family was comprised solely of recent immigrants. Researchers, however, determined this was incorrect, tracing the family of her great-grandmother, Lillian Hodge, back to its early American roots. Resource #1: census records Researchers turned to census records to follow the Hodge family back through time. In the 1860 U.S. Federal Census, great-great-great-grandfather, John Eber Hodge, is a young boy living at home with his widowed mother. Resource #2: obituary Who was John Eber Hodges father? Researchers located an obituary for John Eber, dated 1908. His father, John S. Hodge, is mentioned in the obituary along with the note that John S. died on his way to California in 1849. Returning to census records, a John Hodge, who matches the description of John Ebers father, is found in 1850 in El Dorado County, California. Occupation: miner. Resource #3: published histories But which is correct? Did John S. Hodge die in 1849 or did he abandon the family to strike it rich out West? Researchers focus on records about 49ers to learn more about the California Gold Rush. And then they strike family history gold: We found a letter written by someone in Ohio to John S. Hodge, which had been published in a book, says Natalie Cottrill of ProGenealogists, who appeared with Sarah Jessica in the episode. One of my colleagues tracked down the original set of letters, which provided more details, including information about John S. Hodges 1850 death. Resource #4: more primary records Estate and other documents further confirmed that the ancestral John S. Hodge and the California miner John Hodge was the same individual. Why the discrepancy? The 1849 death date is from a published obituary, not a primary source. Obituaries are compiled from information offered at the time of a persons death, second-hand or even later. Its likely that details in John Eber Hodges obituary were relayed by a friend or relative of John Eber, not John Eber himself. The person who reported the obituary facts may have relied on stories he or she had heard from John Eber Hodge, who himself had never met his father. Slight discrepancies in dates and other information are quite likely in secondary sources, which is why locating original records is so important. EMAILING FOR THE GREATER GOOD Join me

    2. Eric Schultz
    3. I'm looking for information on the following Brooks/DeVoe family. I think George Brooks is the brother of my GGG-grandfather Peter Brooks. If that is true, then his parents are George Brooks and Maria DeVoe (b. 24 February 1778, Albany, NY). I don't remember where I found the name of Deborah Devoe's mother Elizabeth, but I'm leaving it in this report, because it might have some relevance. I do have a notation that her name was Betsy, but I didn't source it. Several members of this family are buried in the Dewitt Cemetery, Dewitt, Onondaga Co., NY. John D. Brooks was in the civil war. I have copies of their census records 1850 forward. I've got more info that I'm willing to share. Thanks! Happy New Year, Eric Descendants of George Brooks Generation No. 1 1. GEORGE1 BROOKS was born 1807 in New York, and died 05 January 1893. He married DEBORAH DEVOE, daughter of ELIZABETH. She was born 1811 in New York, and died 22 March 1887. Children of GEORGE BROOKS and DEBORAH DEVOE are: i. JOHN D.2 BROOKS, b. 1835, New York; d. July 1864. ii. MARY AGNESS BROOKS, b. 1837, New York. iii. CHARLES BROOKS, b. 1843, New York. iv. GEORGE A.

    3. _________________________________ i'm EMAILING FOR THE GREATER GOOD Join me Genealogy Tip By Anna Fechter  Home for the Holidays What comes to the top of your mind when you think of the holidays? When I asked my co-worker this question she replied, “Family of course!” Nowthis may be due to the fact that we work for a family oriented company but I would like to think that most people would have answered the same way.  During the holiday season generally families gather together so use this time to add to your family history research.  There are a few things that I like to have with me when we are attending family events,  Camera  Digital recorder or video recorder  Pen and paper  My research binder  My laptop (if I can)  Here’s the why.  If you have a camera on hand not only can you take pictures of family members but you can also take pictures of their pictures, or family  belongings.  On one trip I took a picture of the front page of a family bible that contained a lot of great information.  Having a digital or video recorder will allow you to record family stories and if the opportunity arises you can also conduct an interview with a family member.  This past summer we interviewed my husband’s  grandfather who is now at a stage where he is not able to talk much –  having the interview where he tells stories, sings songs and just talks about the past is priceless!  It never fails that I wish I had Aunt Nancy’s email address or my cousin’s mailing address.  Bringing a pen and paper to events gives me a place to write these things down and I can also distribute my email address or contact  information to them.  My research binder contains a calendar, a recent copy of the family tree, my research log and the questions that I have not been able to answer.  When I am around family I inevitably can add a few names to the tree, cross a few items off my list of questions and I love having the calendar with me to record new additions to the family.  My laptop is obviously a great resource for various reasons – and if I have it I don’t need many of the other items on my list.  The greatest benefit of having my laptop (other than not having to bring anything else) is being able to share all of the cool things I am working on  – my family book,  the online family tree,  records I have located, etc – and not only have them look at these things but I can send them notes, or invite them to the tree right then and there.  I have found that when my family members realize that there is something to family history beyond sitting in dusty archives that they want to get involved and it gets them excited.  I hope you are as fortunate as I am and that you are able to visit with family over the  next month.  Before you gather think of how they can help you with your research and what you could accomplish by bringing a few simple items along.  Happy Holidays!  ========================  Names Can Vary From One Census to Another  My grandfather, John Martin Southern, wrote the names and birth dates of his children (by both his wives) in the family Bible.  The name he gives for his first son is Jabeth A. When putting together a detailed family list, I found Uncle Jabe on two censuses, but couldn't find him on an early Census. Frustrated, I asked the help of a friend who had been helpful in the past.  She found him... listed as A(xxxx) Jabeth Southern!  I am not giving the first name because my grandfather didn't give it in the family Bible. I will leave it to you to come up with reasons for a man, who'd been called "Jabe" all his life, to give the census taker his first name.  I don't know the answer, but thought you might try the idea of reversing given names, if you're stuck on a family member whom you know was alive at the time, but is missing from a census. Thanks to Odessa Southern Elliott =====================================  Correcting Census Transcriptions  When searching the census, using a first name,  year of birth, or state of birth will often help narrow the search.  I have even just done a search of the state, county, township which gives you everyone in the census for that area.  This works better for smaller rural areas.  Often the problem is in the interpretation of the written letters from the original census.  I always take the extra time to enter corrections when I am searching the census at  Ancestry.com so that others will be able to find family more quickly.  [I totally ditto this, has sure helped me so often so I do it too each time I see there is a need to do so and also put in the comments block who the guy or gals folks are and who they later married and how many kids they had  as it just doesnt take that long to do this and it really helps someone who follows behind you]  I appreciate when I find a family member because someone else took the time to add correct information to the entry.  I have always been impressed with how very helpful most genealogy researchers are.  [definitely ditto this esp in leaving postems on trees on ancestry or rootsweb, folks usually are grateful and take the time to write and either say thanks or ask for more info! love those postems] ============================  I want to add something myself I just really am grateful to ancestry.com for now....when you find a good tree of folks you are searching, now ancestry has put census on the page of the person you pull up, not the whole census but the part all you need to do is click on it and if you have an ancestry.com account, can go right to that census, click on it and wa lou you can see it quick and not be searching for the person or family half the day, this is totally awesome, and ocassionally the census is not of the family say if its a real common name like John Smith, but usually the ones listed there in a little block are of the family and it is just great to be able to have this new data inserted on the trees, makes time go so much faster and so often find a census you may never find too searching half a day, all thanks to ancestry, great assest if you didn't know about, go ck on a tree of someone you know or would research and see if there are some census there, also they put d! eath records and marr records there too, just whatever is known they put there on that person, way cool!]  Thanks to Mary Watkins ================================ Have a story, question, genealogy resource, or tip you’d like to share with RootsWeb Review readers?

I also have birth dates for 11 children and their spouces and have brought some lines to present, all data back in Lena. Problem, no parents',data or sibs. I have looked at Cayuga Co. sites but, like I said, the data does not go back far enough! Ancestry.com wants me to join but I don't think Ancestry has the answers either. I hope I have not confused or discouraged you in your goals, Duane

    3. I looked through my copy of the DeVeaux Genealogy and could not find a George b 1806, but there are like 25 George's in the book. The story is that two brothers, sons of Thomas, Elijah and Benjamin came to Owasco. There is also an Abraham Devoe (1810 census) 1820 there is only Elijah and Levi (son of Elijah) listed (even though I know there are more families (mine)) Good chance he belongs to one of those... I am still reasearching DeVoes in Cayuga County to try and bring Thomas F's book up to the present (without divulging information about those still living). If I come across anything, I will let you know. Oh! I did find a will mention for Abraham Devoe that lists a George as a son. I will send you that later. Jessica

    3. Who are his parents/children? There are lots of DeVoe's in Cayuga County. I can check there when I go later today. It might be a few days before I can get back to you though. Jessica
