Meanwhile, I think it’s much easier to enjoy the letters that are there, and see how they overlap with common references, yielding a more dynamic view of our “living” ancestors.
I uploaded several genealogical documents I obtained during investigation of Jesse Chappell’s ancestry. They’re accessible in an “album” sort of format. On the Chappell Family Ancestry page there’s now a button marked Genealogy Documents. Click the button to get the documents matrix. Click on individual documents for enlargements. I would invite people to look, in particular, at Charlotte Chappell’s birth certificate. If anybody can make out the date of birth, let me know. It’s clearly February of 1840; but the date in February? I’m leaning toward “Seventh”. Still doesn’t look right, but I can’t come up with anything else.
There’s plenty to write about now that Christmas is upon (past) us, but I wanted to post links to a couple of videos. In a recent email, Bev Medling wrote, “For your Christmas enjoyment, Karina’s Choir made the news, you have to listen to the commercials first but hang in there and you will see our girl perform.”
