RE: POST/HUNT in NJ connection

Subee-no Hunts in my line as I can tell, but found a Charles E.Post and an unnamed Hunt in NJ having a child together in 1879-80. Is this something worth pursuing? Found the information at

Giving enough information

To the newbie family researcher: I would love to try to help you as would others. However, if you only ask a question without giving us enough information to begin the searching, we "treasure hunters" in the community can not assist, and then you think no one cares. The example under the "title or question" when you posted helps some, but is rather vague unless "SMITH in Minnesota" is all you have. It would help if you were to say, "Looking for George SMITH in Minnesota around 1870", and if you could add in the content area that "George was married to Rebecca" it would surely help. As much as you can give is helpful. Someone may not know of either "George or Rebecca SMITH" but if you had added the names of any children you knew of....maybe someone in our tree had married into a SMITH family of Minnesota whose mom and dad were named Rebecca and George. That is often how the links are forged. Many of us have little information of our forebearers for one reason or another and it can be a difficult journey to find our heritage alone. This forum certainly helps if we all will give it a fair chance. Happy Hunting!

Andrew Jackson BASS of BASSVILLE, MO

Bassville no longer exists, I am told, but is right outside Springfield in Greene Co. My info leads to Andrew Jackson BASS and wife, Ellender SMITH Bass settling there and having a number of children. Their son, Newton Josiah married Malisa Jane Akin in 1889 and eventually moved to Canadian Co. OK. Anyone with more information to flesh out the family?

ARNOLD PALLISER was born abt. 1898, NYC, USA

His father died before he was born and his mother, Margaret, returned to her parent's household. Their name was JACOBS. Before 1910 Margaret remarried Julius ZSCHOMA and gave birth to several girls. Other than NY 1905 census and 1910 Federal Census I cannot seem to find the ZSCHOMA family. Anyone looking at this family, too?

FOUND! Too often our Journals begin: Looking for or Seeking info.

Too often our Journals begin with questions of the community members. Rarely do we see any real success stories. To those many fellow searchers out there I want to say thanks for helping me in my searchs and I hope I have been helpful in yours. I would urge everyone to get into message boards and mailing lists wherever they are, not just this one. Through an e-mailing list I am on I found out that last weekend which I do not subscribe)was having a "free" weekend on immigration information and I can proudly say: I FOUND WHAT I NEEDED! Castle Garden records and Ellis Island records did not help me out because "my people" immigrated in a little timeline hole. Because of the e-list information I plugged into Ancestry and I found them. I wanted everyone to know. I knew you all would smile and be happy for me, you all understand those magic moments of success.

Turn of the 20th century: New York City: FRASER and PALLISER

I have found my mother's grandparents, both sides, in NYC around 1900 having emigrated sometime in the 1890s. Do these names ring any bells with anyone out there?
