Searching For Family Connections

 I'm still Searching For Family Connections.  I'm thankful for what I have been discovering over the years. It's been an interesting journey. I've come  along the way since I began. I'm coming up on my 5th year on Family Connections: From Generations to Generations. That day will be on Monday, June  30, 2014.

I'm thankful for those who have helped me and or helping me on my journey's quest. I couldn't have gotten as far without help. Thank You, Jesus! Thank you helpers. It does take time and persistence to search for family history.

Through the years, I have posted info on my family connections and asked questions. I did receive some feedback. I'm thankful for those readers who help add this site, those who gave some suggestions on in doing my search, those who helped me make corrections... and those who have commented on what I posted on Family Connections: From Generations to Generations. God bless you.

I have a sister site on facebook called Family Connections. I created that page on November 16, 2011. As of  May of 2014, I have 40 people who like that site. My journey continues on my facebook Family Connections

I will continue to journal here on this blogger site as well. I only know of a few who reading this site. I have a lot all updates to journal...  I have to take some time to re read some of my discoveries over the years. I'm amazed by what I've learned.

As I have said, I've come a long ways on my family connections journey. I came across some CA, NY and TX connections this year. It's interesting to hear what happened to relatives on the family tree. What they know or heard about the family history. It adds more to the story.

I believe that there are more info out there and people who can add to the family history. I hope pray that many will start to search for their ancestors and stick with it. The most important thing to do, is to write down; record what's known about the family history.

May we continue to search for our ancestors.
May we share what we know about our family history.
May the Lord guide us as we journey throughout our lives.

Thanks for reading: Searching For Family Connections
Hope you had a wonderful month of May.
My Family Connections Journey continues in the month of June!

God bless you.

They are missed but not forgotten.

I have come a lot of relatives who have served in the U.S.A. military.
Some of them are buried in National Cemeteries along with their spouse and or children.

Here's a list of some Family Connections:
Find A Grave Memorials Military Links

Precious Memories

As clear as a loving word or touch

of a hand so warm and clear

Are the memories of our loved ones that

we treasure and hold near.

A favorite song or picture often causes

us to recall, the many special times

that were the dearest ones of all.

And although time will heal the loss

we will never be far apart

Because God's gift of memory will always
be a treasure in our hearts.

May there be special memories of all the deceased members
on the Family Connections Families. The ones we remember will always live in our hearts.
And for those who we shall reunite again.
Here are some surnames on Family Connections

The Bartlett - Blakley Family Connection

The Allen - Lankford/ Lankfard  Family Connections

.The Hooper - Bartlett  Family Connections

 The Blakley - Lyle  Family Connections

 The Allen Washington/Walters  Family Connections

Updates Info And The Dade Family Connections

I have been  updating some info on Family Connections. And I've been making new discoveries along the journey. It's a process in the making the right connections.

I'm trying to piece together what I've discovered from what I've been coming  across. It has been interesting findings. I thank God for the information.

The DADE Family Connections

It's been four years since I had a break through on the Dade Family Connections. It was on May 8, 2010 when I came across another Dade searcher who was interested the family tree. It was then, when  I made the connections that my Great Grandma Charlotta DADE LANKFORD/ LANKFARD had sister named Louisa Jane (DADE) WASHINGTON.

I began to search to find more my Great Aunt Louisa / "Janie" WASHINGTON. I came across the names of her children and some of their descendants. What  a journey it has been. 

In the process of my discoveries, I started my project: Project: The Frances Ovington Dade Connections I found more descendants on Louisa DADE WASHINGTON and on facebook. I believe that there are more out there.

I'm thankful for the leads that I have been coming across. I thank God always along the journey. I'm praying that someday there will be more relatives that will discover their DADE Family Connections.

Thanks for reading.
