1) On Tuesday's Tip: FamilySearch Has Added New York City Records (posted 24 March 2015):
* Dara said excitedly: "Thank you, Randy Seaver!! I've finally found the death record for my GGG-grandmother, Jane Byrne, in Brooklyn, in 1901 and with it the names of my GGGG-grandparents, William and Hannah Daly - Happy Days! Can't wait to learn more about these record sets."
My comment: I love getting comments like this!!! It made my day. Glad I can help, Dara, and I hope you find records of your 4th great-grandparents too!
* Jacqi Stevens noted: "Randy, this is excellent news! Guess I'll have to switch tracks on my ancestor chase, and set aside the pursuit of maternal colonials and take a look at what I can find on paternal immigrant NYC residents. I've got plenty of them that have me stymied."
My comment: Good luck with your search, but please keep going on your maternal colonials too.
2) On Sorting Out the Military Service of Zachariah Hildreth (1754-1820) (posted 23 March 2015):
* Linda Stufflebean commented: "Randy, Check the DAR.org website, GRS link to Ancestors. http://services.dar.org/Public/DAR_Research/search_adb/default.cfm
"Two Zachariahs come up, one 1728-1784, married Elizabeth Prescott. The second 1754-1829 married Elizabeth Keyes and he is called 2nd Lt. One member, nat. number 762184, has both men listed as her patriots. My nat. number begins with 658 and I joined in 1981. This lady likely joined in the late 1980s or early 1990s and had to provide strong documentation."
"What do you think? I'm not saying the DAR type process would say that we know EVERYTHING about the tree we've certified but there is enough evidence to believe these people are related in the way presented."
