Researching family history is my hobby.  The research is fascinating and I love navigating the labyrinth. This website is a way for me to connect with people researching the same families and share information. Contact me at myforgottenhistory@gmail.com.

Primary Research

My research is focused on ancestors from England and Germany who settled in the Midwest, primarily in

  • Jo Daviess county, Illinois
  • Starke and Boone counties, Indiana
  • Dubuque county, Iowa
  • Morrow, Wood and Seneca counties, Ohio

Family Names

Cemetery Photos

I have some cemetery photos.  Additionally, I have submitted cemetery records to FindAGrave.com.

More Complete Research

The majority of my research is on Ancestry.com. While Ancestry is excellent, it is a subscription service. 

Good luck on your research!
