    1. PLEASE READ: List Update
    2. Joan Asche
    3. Hello all, As you probably already know the mailing lists are being moved to a new list management system. This list is scheduled the week of Sept. 10th. For the exact schedule schedule and additional information see: http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/migrate_sched.html. Please note that this schedule is subject to change. A couple of things you need to know: 1. Subscribers who subscribe in both the list and digest modes using the same email address will no longer be able to do so. You may still subscribe to both but you will need to use two email address. You can always use a free Internet account such as hotmail, yahoo or gmail. 2. You should be aware that you may need to adjust your spam filters. Officially from rootsweb: <snip> The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the "from" address your mailing list emails come from will be slightly different- [email protected] vs. the current [email protected] You may have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being caught in your "junk" folder. <snip> You will be able to send mail with or without the "-L" Any questions just email me at [email protected] Sincerely, Joan Asche List Admin

    1. my families from Scioto
    2. John & Kathy Lupton
    3. I have several family lines that emanated from Scioto County. There are the Tacketts (Samuel and Hannah Davis Tackett and children James, John, Mary, Sarah, Martha, Evaline, Lucinda, Jesse, Matilda, Emily, Lewis and Albert), who were in and out of Scioto from 1850 to 1880, and some who were there in the early 1900s yet. There are the Davises, (Martin and Rachel Spriggs Davis, and children John, Joseph, William, James and Henry) who were there from 1855 to 1880 before moving to Marion County. There is the Neff family (John and Louisa Neff Davis, daughter of Eli and Obedience Carter Neff, and their children Minerva, Emily, Charles, Eliza and Emily, who lived in Scioto from 1860 and into the 1930s and beyond probably. Finally, there also are several Spriggs and Throckmorton families - all of interest to me as well. Kathy John A. Lupton Kathy Le Comte Lupton [email protected]

    3. No, it was established by rootsweb and has nothing to do with Scioto.org. The list discription states the following: Topic: A mailing list for anyone with a genealogical interest in the Lower Scioto Valley which includes Pickaway, Ross, Pike, Adams, Scioto, Lawrence and Jackson Counties in Southern Ohio. I WIKIPEDIA has some very good information on the area: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scioto_River#Cities_and_towns_along_the_Scioto_River Hope this helps.

    2. Rose Ballard
    3. I am interested in this list for several reasons. I was born in Chillicothe, Ohio, but grew up in Portsmouth. I also have relatives still living in Portsmouth. And if anyone knows the Waughtel family can you please let me know how everyone is? I have not been in contact with them for a while. Thanks. Also, My mother's marriage license said she was born in Portsmouth. She always told me she was born in Ky. Anyway her father was Ernest Watkins b 4/6/1900-d 4/23/1962 and Lula. Lula told me her maiden name was Brown, But mom's marriage license said Glenn. My stepfather may have also been from this area. He was William(Bill) Lett. He was born 1902 and died sometime in 1970's. He had a younger brother name Lacey Lett. --------------------------------- Get amazing travel prices for air and hotel in one click on Yahoo! FareChase

    1. Re: LIST UPDATE PLEASE READ
    2. Dear Joan, Welcome...and if I can help with any of my ancestors who settled in Scioto and other Ohio River Counties...I will do my best to respond. Briefly, my ancestors were part of the French 500 [Peter SERROT and his wife Catherine AVELINE. Her second marriage was to Andrew LaCROIX....and I have extensive information on both lines. By coincidence, my husband and I lived in Portsmouth and later Rosemont in the early 1960's...long before I knew I had family there and before I started doing genealogy. [Ahhh! What I wish I had known then what I have since discovered. I tried through the years to keep Alan aware of any new finding I discovered...so it may all be there somewhere. Again, Welocme and I wish you the best of luck. Nikki NICKELL Hoquiam, Washington

    1. Your 1600s Ancestors Data Base Update
    2. First Families
    3. Hello Everyone: Those of you who are working on your lines back to your 1600s American Ancestors will find the 1600s Ancestors Data Base to be of great help. I have recently posted several hundred new Ancestors to the Data Base bringing the total to over 29,000 entries both men and women. Also listed are several National Societies who have proven many of the Ancestors you will find here. There are also a few new Reference Works that contain many more lines. The entries are coded to indicate to which Society or Reference Work has at least one of their proven lines. Several of the National Societies have over 20 different lines from a single Ancestor. WHEN YOU ENTER THE 1600s ANCESTORS DATA BASE be sure to look at the top of each data page for the link that takes you to the "Data Base Information Page". There you will find the list of codes and how to use them. This is MUST reading if you are to understand the Data Base and how to use it. We are constantly updating the Data Base with Additional Ancestors and references as time permits. More work has been devoted to updating listings of the female Ancestors by going back and including marriage dates. This takes much time and we still have a lot of work to do there. You will find the 1600s Ancestor Data Base at; http://www.firstfamilies.org/db/ For those of you who are AOL members you may have trouble connecting to many pages that may come up with a message such as "Page Does Not Exist" and you should cure that by using your browser feature of Copy and Paste the URL to your browser and pressing your enter key. Everyone has free access to the Data Base and to all our posted pages. Enjoy and Happy Hunting Ryan Jackson Data Base Manager America's First Families

    1. Surnames & Forenames
    2. First Families
    3. Hello Scioto Valley Researchers: For those of you who have a deep interest in how, when and where your Surnames were formed I would like to direct you to 5 new pages we have recently added to our web site. Many researchers have for years believed that all ancestors with the same Surname were at some point related. That is simply not true. When you get back to proving your pre 1500s ancestors you will discover that there are in fact many Surnames that have passed through many families that have no relationship whatsoever. The 5 pages mentioned also contain information on many Forenames and their creation and some of the pages are large so relax and take your time. THE ORIGIN OF THE SURNAME PART 1 THE ORIGIN OF THE SURNAME PART 2 THE ORIGIN OF THE FORENAME FORENAMES OF WOMEN AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE FORENAMES OF MEN AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE .......................................................................... There is much information here that should be of interest to all. Go to our web site at: http://www.linkline.com/personal/xymox/ Once there enter the link titled "ORIGIN OF SURNAMES & FORENAMES" this will take you to the index for the 5 pages. For those of you who are AOL members you may have trouble connecting to many pages that may come up with a message such as "Page Does Not Exist" and you can cure that by using your browser feature of Copy and Paste the URL to your browser and then enter from there. All pages contained within our web pages are free for viewing and study by all interested researchers. The very best to you all. Enjoy. Harold Oliver Director America's First Families

    1. Allied Lines Are Rewarding
    2. First Families
    3. Hello Everyone: Many of you are unaware of the great amount of data that you may need can be located within published lineages that you may have discarded because you thought they covered another line. For instance a title may say "The Smith Family" or something similar and since you have no Smiths in your line, you do not take time to pursue it further. Make it a point to always check the index of any reference work you locate. You just may turn up those missing surnames that continue to elude you. As an example of what you may find is the lineage of the well known genealogist Mrs. Mellcene Thurman Smith used by her in 1929 to qualify for membership in the Daughters of The American Colonists. The lineage of Mrs. Smith contains much data on many of her ancestors that may be of help to some of you. Unlike many direct line lineages she has gone into her allied lines by listing wives, marriage dates, death dates and birth dates and also a few words on who these people were. The lines represented are mostly all from Massachusetts and New England On this file I have included names of some of her ancestors to show just what can be done with a line. All this was compiled before before the advent of computers! This complete file is listed on our web site and you will find the URL at the end of this message. Some of her many Ancestors are. Caleb Abel, Robert Abel, James Allen, Samuel Allen, William Backus, John Baldwin, Robert Bartlett, Thomas Bartlett, Jonathan Bliss, Margaret Lawrence Bliss, Samuel Bliss, Thomas Bliss, Thomas Bliss, Sr., Thomas Bliss, Jr., Richard Bowen, Edward Brazier, Thomas Burchard, Abigail Carpenter, William Carpenter, William Carpenter, Jr., John Charles, Richard Cook, William Copp, Benjamin Crane, John Crane, Jonathan Crane, John Crooke, John Crossman, Robert Crossman, Barnabas Davis, Samuel Davis, Edward Dix, William Dixey, Rev.

Once you get there you will be looking for the link FAMILY PAGES INDEX which you will enter. On the Family Index Page enter SOURCE FILE #20 We also have other numbered source files located there that contain similar type of information on other lines and from other areas of the country. I hope this data will enable you to clear up some of those "Brick Walls" that we all experience from time to time. Needless to say it is very important to prove everything you download from the internet. NEVER just accept a listing until you have proven that the sources are acceptable. Everyone has FREE access to all our web site and the reports contained there. The very best to all of you. Harold Oliver Director America's First Families

    2. First Families
    3. Hello Everyone; As most of you are aware the question of genealogical frauds and hoaxes must be of concern to genealogists and researchers since so much information out there is very questionable.

The page in question is titled; BEWARE OF THE SOURCE HOAX Many of you are quite aware of some of some of the ways frauds and hoaxes are committed and you may need to review your lines to see if possibly they may contain some of the situations we cover.
