Well basically, I’ve been looking into my grandma’s stepmom’s side of the family. I tracked down her dad, a pharmacist in Ohio, and his dad, a farmer in Ohio but I was having difficulty with his father. Eventually I managed to connect them to Antony sylvester (possible Portuguese spelling “João sylvestre” , but I don’t know the language so I’m not sure), who incredibly enough is actually written about in an 1880 book about the Ohio village he was from and gives a good backstory for him. He was born off the coast of Portugal on Flores island in the Azores in 1818 but raised in Lisbon. When he was 13 he traveled to America where he supposedly immediately became a sailor. The book mentioned he “traveled twice around the world, doubled Cape Horn 3 times, served on whaling ships, merchant vessels and 18 months on a man-O-war...he was in the East and West Indies, sandwich isles, South America, China, France, Great Britain, nearly all nations with which commerce was carried out.” And also said he served in the Mexican American war transporting quartermaster supplies before marrying someone from New Orleans and working on a steamboat On the Ohio river. He worked for commodore David Gibson on the steamboat, a mate on the”Ill-fated” “magnolia” and “Lancaster” ships And captain of the “poland” and captain for one year each on the “Lancaster” “mollie norton,” and “melrose” it states he’s taken the oath of allegiance to the United States over 20 times during his sailing.

外围体育投注Sorry for my rambling, but basically my struggle is A. Finding documentation from the ships he was on and B. Finding baptism records from the Flores islands so I could track down his lineage a bit better. I have found online records archives for Flores island and 5 of the record books I think cover the period I’m asking about that I’ll link down below. I don’t expect anyone to want to search through all of those books (they’re also super hard to read even if not in a different language) but I would appreciate knowing where to look for March of 1818 when he was supposedly born.

外围体育投注I was wondering if I could be of Basque origin. I was born and live in Poland, but my great grandfather was an Austrian (there are only 10-20 people with my last name in Poland) and I have most of my DNA from his side.

I have 0 RH- blood type. I have head shape of typical cro magnon person (smaller bottom third, larger cranium and forehead, longer nose), I have very low body fat and I can walk for very long without getting tired. I feel the best in mountain areas. I believe that before living in Austria, my previous ancestors probably come from northern Italy (judging by how my last name sounds like). But maybe they came there from the Basque region as it's not too far away from there... Were Basques known for venturing more to the east (Northern Italy/Austria) from Basque region? Could I be of Basque origin?

Hi everyone!

This is an issue I've had a LONG time.

Say I find a census record showing my ancestor as head of household. I look at the image to make sure it's him - and yes, it is, with his wife and their children. So I click yes to accept the census data addition to my tree....and my ancestor pops up, but his wife and his kids are not also there for me to add as well.

外围体育投注Why? I mean, it would make sense if it either consistently did it, or consistently didn't do it....but neither is the case. It seems random. Sometimes I'll be able to add the whole family unit and tag them all with the census data, but other times I have to go back and find that census and add each person separately.

Does anyone know why this happens? And is there a way to make sure the whole family unit comes up at the same time, consistently?

Thanks!
