I Couldn't Resist...subscribing to

I finally subscribed to at the $99.95 rate they offered (ending today) via email the other day. Now I can concentrate on Rhode Island and other records when I go to the FHC instead of Ancestry (well, except for the British records, which aren't included in my subscription!).

I still can't find any data on Fred Baldwin, his wife Matilda or his mother Lucretia, other than the census records in Fillmore County MN and Howard County IA in 1870 to 1930. I have looked "everywhere" (but especially in NY) for Lucretia and her boys Orange, Lester and Fred Baldwin in the 1850 and 1860 census, but they are either well hidden or not enumerated.

I was reading Tim's Genealogy Reviews Online blog tonight and he mentioned the 1851 census is free at Ancestry right now. So I popped into my new subscription and found my three ancestral Canadian families in the 1851 census record, and I saved the summary page and the census page to my hard drive for:

1) Abram Kemp of Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County, Canada West (I had a transcription but not the image)

2) Alexander Sovereen of Charlottesville, Norfolk County, Canada West (I had a transcription but not the image)

3) John Putman of Middleton, Norfolk County, Canada West (new data for me)

I also captured Jonathan Sever on Canada West for good measure.

Now I need to print those off and add the data to my database.
