Finding Nemo – and every Smith, Miller and Buckner in America

Whether you’re looking for William Nemo who was “shot and instantly killed about 10 o’clock last night” in Anaconda, Montana as reported in the 24 June 1903 Anaconda Standard …

or ….. Boyd C. Buckner who died July 4th in Maynardsville, Tennessee as reported in the 6 July 2008 Knoxville News Sentinel (TN) - you’ll find them – along with over one billion other people in GenealogyBank.

The US Census Bureau has released the list of the top 1,000 surnames in use in America today – as I did a spot check of each surname in GenealogyBank I found all of them represented.

There were 13,475 entries for the surname: Vang – the last name on the list and 5.7 million entries for the surname Smith – the first name on the list.

Go to GenealogyBank to find the obituary; death notice; birth announcement; wedding and engagement announcement for your relatives. It’s all in there.

GenealogyBank adds even more newspapers


Hot off the press!

I just received word that GenealogyBank began adding an additional 67 historical newspapers today.

(Image from Library of Congress – American Memory Project)

That jumps the total with yesterday’s announcement to 107 titles added this weekend!!

These titles will finish loading later this week.

These additional historical newspapers are from Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico and Texas and cover the dates 1855 to 1977.

That’s just too many titles for me to list here – but I will put the complete list on GenealogyBank Monday morning. Click here to see the 40 titles I announced yesterday.

It’s a great day for Genealogy ….

Jim Thorpe – Born May 28, 1888

We all heard the stories of Jim Thorpe – the world’s greatest athlete – while we were growing up.

The newspapers & movies regularly carried stories about him and he was even featured on a box of Wheaties. (photo – NC Museum of History).

He loved to compete. He enjoyed the battle itself and the drive to win.
Today is his day – he was born on May 28, 1888.

I found a great quote in the Dallas Morning News 1 Jan 1953 – that captured his love of the game. It was given in an interview just two months before he died at age 64.

The newspapers are packed with articles about him. He was a hero to young and old alike. The town of Mauch Chunk, PA even changed its name to Jim Thorpe, PA (see Dallas Morning News 23 July 1954) … and I am still eating Wheaties.

GenealogyBank has more than 230 million records of more than One Billion people – some of them were well known heroes and some were our often less well known ancestors. But their stories are there to be read – recorded in more than 3,400 historical newspapers – from the 1600s to today.

Give it a try right now. What will you find on your family?
