Geneabloggers Winter Games 2010 – The Podium

I would like to thank Thomas McEntee at Geneabloggers for organizing the Geneabloggers Winter Games 2010, and footnoteMaven for designing the medals for the Winter Games.
I would specially like to thank all of my ancestors, without them I wouldn’t be able to be here, accepting these medals. Last but not least, I would like to thank all of the geneabloggers that cheered me on and gave me encouragement.

GBWG 2010 – AN Update-Week 1

Well, it’s been a week now and the games are proceeding well. So far, I have a Platinum in the “Expand Your Knowledge” category and I’m working on my Platinum. I also have a Gold in the “Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness” and the”Write, Write, Write” categories as well.
I have been working behind the scenes as well on the first three categories, hoping to pick up at least a Gold in those events too.

GBWG 2010- 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy- Week 7

My grandparents’ house in Essex.


I have chosen my great-grandfather’s and grandfather’s home on Arthur Ave. in Essex, Ontario, Canada for this exercise. My great-grandfather,John Hines, and my granduncle, Wm. John (John) Hines built this house when they first came to Essex, prior to the railway explosion of 1907. Like many houses in town at the time, the foundation was moved and the walls were no longer square. My grandfather Wm. Edgar (Bill) lived in this house from the day he was married until the day he died, 60 years later, in 1977.

From this view, the garage is not visible, but it was built by my grandfather entirely from used railroad ties. He and his father worked for the railroad all their lives.
