I think of Colleen Brown Paquale of Leaves & Branches as a GeneaAngel. She had two copies of the same book, Finding Your Family History in Northeast Ohio by Vicki Blum Vigil. She asked if anyone wanted it and a few days later, it was in my mailbox. Thank you for your generosity, Colleen. I appreciate it.
My Northeast Ohio roots border Pennsylvania beginning in the 1850s. In fact, one of the towns where they lived was exactly on the state line. (It's strange to imagine living in a town where one could be standing in two states at the same time.) I hope this book may lead me to further information about them.
I find that GeneaBloggers are generally generous folks. Evidence are blog posts in which they share their research strategies and results; comments on others' posts offering insights, search suggestions, and further understanding; and sometimes going out of their way to perform searches for other bloggers. I'm grateful to be part of this community.
Thank you, Colleen, and thank you, GeneaBloggers.
