    1. [VANSLYKE] Ask Olive Tree!
    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello fellow researchers - Some of you probably know that I read and answer a lot of questions on various genealogy mailing lists. I've been doing this for years but I decided that starting in 2009 I would use a slightly different method. Don't get me wrong, I am still going to respond to mailing list queries whenever possible. But I thought there was a better way to help other researchers, so I started a Blog called Ask Olive Tree. It's at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ Ask Olive Tree is a central place where I can post your questions and my answers, and where anyone dropping by can read them - and join in! Yes, anyone can leave a comment on any of the queries and answers on Ask Olive Tree. Do you need help finding an ancestor? Do you have a genealogy question you would like to ask me? Do you want to know where to find specific genealogy records? You can ask any kind of question from "How do I find my grandpa Harry on a ships' passenger list from Ireland to New York in the 1800s?" to "What's the Dutch name for Anna?" to "What does the British Bonus System mean?" (all of these are actual questions asked and answered) If you want help finding an elusive ancestor, please be sure that you provide me with a concise (brief) summary of your ancestor with names, dates and locations. Be sure to give me full location names, please don't tell me your ancestor lived in "Salmon Creek" and expect me to know where that is. I need to know the full location - "Salmon Creek, Puslinch Township, Wellington Co., Ontario Canada" Tell me where you have looked and what you want to find out. I've been receiving some queries that give me lots of details but never tell me what they want to know! Basically I want to help - either by finding your elusive ancestor, or by directing you to the sources you need to find him/her yourself or by answering a question about resources or name and boundary changes or.... whatever! The email address to use if you want to submit a question is askolivetree@gmail.com So take a peek at my new site Ask Olive Tree at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ , read a few of the queries already posted and then flex your typing fingers and send me a question. I can't respond to questions sent anywhere but askolivetree@gmail.com so be careful not to reply to this address when asking.
