Death Tree

A few other genealogists have posted their “Death Tree” for All Hallows’ Eve today. I thought I’d join in and see what I have.

Father

Mother

Not sure what to make of all this information, but it was interesting putting it all together.

 

Happy Hunting!

The Birth Record of Robert Elisha Edgar Crew

 

Try as I might, I just can’t get ahold of my great grandfather's birth record. I found this index on familysearch.org several months back.

REE Crew birth

It seemed to confirm what several cousins have told me about his name, he had three names. I located three signatures for great granddad Crew. You can see them here ( Wordless Wednesday– Great Granddad Crew’s Signature )and here (Wordless Wednesday– Two more signatures of Robert Edgar Crew).

So now that I had a way to actually see his birth record, I contacted FamilySearch Photoduplication Services and requested a copy of the record. I waited for less than two weeks only to get the following response.
Crew Birth

How disappointing! The good news is that the record exists (or existed) somewhere. The problem is tracking it down!

Happy Hunting!
