What is your most interesting discovery?
In Response To: What is your most interesting discovery? ()
My most interesting discoveries were finding the Avant branch of my family online, and learning that some grew up right outside D.C. while I lived there (American roots in Lawrenceville and Norfolk, Va.), discovering that one of my Shaw's from N.C. migrated to Columbus, Ohio and speaking with his employer's grandson, tracing my Hall's of Fulton Co., Ga. to my great-grandmother's generation, and learning that the "Terrin" Ga. on my grandfather's paperwork was actually Turin in Coweta County. Was also excited when I found one of my Littleton, N.C. Shaw's, the barber Lazarus Shaw, in a book on the town's citizen's by Rebecca Dozier.
