So I was feeling dizzy Friday night and wasn't up to posting this, although it was prepped and mostly finished. I mentioned in my first post of family events that I had had to export a GEDCOM from Family Tree Maker and import that file to Reunion, because FTM didn't permit me to search effectively. I have discovered that the import didn't include all names, even though that's what I told the computer to do for the GEDCOM. John Wylie Hall appeared in the results for my "5 January" marriage date search, but Mabel Brickel did not. I was easily able to learn who Mr. Hall married by looking in the original FTM database, but now I have to wonder how many more people are missing from the export.
Jonathan Sellers, son of George Sellers and Eleanor Wallick, was born January 5, 1831 in Tuscawaras County, Ohio. He is my 4th cousin 3x removed.
Horace Samuel Eckman, son of John Eckman and Martha J. Atkinson, was born January 5, 1905 in Columbus, Burlington County, New Jersey. He is the brother of my grandaunt Bertha Poinsett Eckman and granduncle Edwin Bunting Eckman.
William David Brainin, son of Benjamin Brainin and Yetta Braunstein, was born January 5, 1922 in Bronx, Bronx County, New York. He is my 1st cousin 2x removed.
Lawrence Kardish, son of Samuel Kardish and Tillie Steinberg, was born January 5, 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He is my 2nd cousin once removed through my Gorodetsky line.
Sharon Birnboim was born January 5, 1961 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. She is my 4th cousin through my Meckler line.
Gary Lewis Rudin was also born January 5, 1961, but in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He too is my 4th cousin, again through my Meckler line.
William Kester Allen (III) was born January 5, 1964. He is my 5th cousin once removed through my Gauntt line.
William Kester Allen, Jr. (father of the above William Kester Allen) and Thelma May Price were married on January 5, 1952. He is my 5th cousin through my Gauntt line.
John Wylie Hall and Mabel Ellen Elizabeth Brickel were married on January 5, 1962 in Los Altos Hills, Santa Clara County, California. She is my 2nd cousin once removed through my Armstrong line.
John Sellers, son of Philip Henry Sellers and Catharina, died probably in Bucks County or Montgomery County, Pennsylvania January 5, 1783 at the age of 51. He is my 5th great-grandfather.
Samuel Thackara, son of James Thackara and Jane Gaunt, died January 5, 1863 at the age of 68. He is my 2nd cousin 5x removed through the Gaunts.
Calvert Gaunt, son of William Allen Gaunt and Mollie Parrott, died January 5, 1942 at the age of 75. He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
Catherine Marie Sellers, daughter of Cornelius Elmer Sellers and Laura May Armstrong, died January 5, 1989 in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida at the age of 81. She is my grandaunt and the sister of my paternal grandfather.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
