  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. Thanks
    I'm enjoying the Geneabloggers so far. I hope to do more with my genealogy online, but right now managing my math charity "in living color" as well as online. I'm hoping someone else is searching for the same folks (my brickwalls, mostly the women!) and finds Ursula! I've broken down other brickwalls by collaboration with other folks I've met one line.

  3. Your on the right research track. Sometimes you never do find the definitive link and you have use an inferential method to establish ancestry. Thomas Jones gives some excellent lectures on how to do this. Good Luck!!

    thanks. I'll watch for Thomas Jones when I go to a gen conference.
    I should post a new clue, her potential mother Phebe More, but that will open even more questions!

  5. Erica,

    Here is a link to Dr. Tom Jones on Inferential Genealogy

    I have used his method and have been blogging about it at:

    New England Worthingtons and Wrights. Will have to look into that

    Thanks for the links. I'll check them out and listen to the course.

    To add to the mix, I started awhile ago wondering if my son-in-law WRIGHT family is related to my WRIGHT (Ursula) family. Little did I know neither WRIGHT family left few records where they lived in NY and CT.
