    3. Nice work Dan. Right now a very informative and easy website to use and I hope it remains easy or becomes even easier. I know in my designs I tend to try and get sophisticated and end up having a page which is not easy to follow. I plan on putting a link to your FunSimpleFreeAncestry site on my three GenWeb sites – http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ndemmons , http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ndtrail2 , and http://www.iagenweb.org/dickinson the next time I do updates to those sites. Keep the good work going onward and upward.

It's a simple collection of free ancestry resources and how to use them. My wife and friends encouraged me to put this website together. I kept getting questions from people who knew I was doing ancestry research and wanted to try it themselves. They were beginners and wanted to know where to go to get information about their ancestry. So I put this website together: http://sites.google.com/site/FunSimpleFreeAncestry It contains a lot of links to websites that are already in many of the GenWeb County websites. I just put them all together with examples of how to use them. So far I have received a lot of great feedback . If you have a website and you would like to add my website as a link, then please do. Thanks, Dan Smith

    3. Hi Bonnie, I am from Bismarck, ND so I don't know the eastern area of the state that well, but I have done a lot of research for other counties in ND. Most of my family is Catholic so I know a little about the records that they keep as well. Here are a few ways to get more info. Catholic churches keep records for all baptism, marriage, and burial records. It depends on the church or priest if they will do lookups or if you can get copies of the records. If you contact the priest or church they will be able to give you more info. If you search google for St. Andrews Township, Walsh County, North Dakota, it will bring up a Google map link that will show you where in the county the township is located. There are some other links as well that will give you some more history of the area. You can also get more detailed info on where the homestead was by going to the Bureau Of Land Management website. http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/ Click on land patent search and you will be able to select the state and then search by surname. Click on the correct name on the results list. You will then have four tabs with info on the land patent. Under Legal Land Description you will get the section, township and range which are the numbers you already have. 157 N is the township, 51W is the range and 28 is the section. If you want to see it on a map you can use http://www.earthpoint.us/Townships.aspx (some areas are required to have a subscription, but this area is free) scroll down to convert township, range and section to latitude and longitude. Select the state, township, range and section then click view. This will bring up the township database box and right next to it the section database box right below where you just clicked. You will see 5 different sets of numbers. These are the latitude and longitude of the center or centroid and each of the four corners of the area. If you have Google earth (if not you can download it for free) click fly to on Google earth and it will show you on a satellite map the area highlighted with a dot on the center. Here are a couple more websites that I have found very helpful in my research of my family in North Dakota. The State Historical Society website http://history.nd.gov/archives/genealogy.html ND Gen Web Project http://www.ndgenweb.org/ I tried to explain this so that anyone who has a homestead that they would like to look would be able to follow the instructions. Please let me know if anyone had any questions.

    3. I had sort of dates, the years I knew they were in the area. I don't know if the priest of Sacred Heart would help, the Catholic Church has gotten really strict about privacy. It wouldn't hurt to write and ask. I think there is a Walsh Co. Plat map on rootsweb.com under North Dakota, Walsh Co.
