Hello World....Again (Update, Nov 11 2016)

Yoo hoo.

Hello world.

This is a very informal post to say that yes I am still around. For the last year I have contracted the services of Roger Kammerer; a genealogist based in North Carolina. He has helped me expand my mother's side of the tree (both maternal and paternal). As of today, me and my mum are taking steps to verify the information on her mother's side.

If we can verify it, I will have some very interesting news to report. We will also be able to move back in time without need to question the veracity of the information.

I'll save my excitement for when we verify the info.
If we have the wrong info, i'll take comfort in the fact that we will have eliminated at least 4 lines with similar names in the same county of South Carolina (Saluda or Edgefield); where Benjamin Franklin Griffin and Dora Ethel Middleton lived.

I will be redoing this site soon. The layout and the wording can be better. And as I would like this to be a professional genealogy blog with the narrative to match, wording is everything.

I'll have to combine my narrative voice and my "this is how you too can search for your family history" voice better.

Stay tuned

  2. Hi Nadia,

    My name is Katie Pulver and I currently live in Columbia, South Carolina. I found your blog while searching through my husband's family history through the LDS website Family Search. His great-great-great grandfather was Michael Beus from Torino, Italy. My husband's family comes through one of Michael's sons, Louis Phillip Beus. He was one of Paul's (one of your ancestors) brothers. I read your other posts and thought this was an interesting connection that you and my husband are distantly related. We are not from South Carolina (both born and raised in Utah) but we will live here a little longer. If you ever need more help with your family tree I know of more resources that might be available to you. Hope to hear back soon!



    1. I would also love to hear a little bit more about the resources you mention. Let me know if you have any questions.

  3. Hi Katie! Thanks for responding to my blog. I am sorry I haven't been on here in a while. Started doing more research; which has led me to your comment. Feel free to get in touch with me at if you would like to know more about my line. I can also add you as a guest on my Ancestry family tree. I look forward to hearing from you :).
