After yesterday’s post about the church records in Waverly, I started entering some basic facts about Uncle Carl Rudeen and his descendants into my genealogy software (a long-overdue task). Some details about his grandson Arvid Samuelson came to light and I am in awe!
The church books from the Bethlehem Covenant Church in Waverly give some clues about the origins and migration of many of the first Swedish immigrant families in southern Saunders and northern Lancaster counties in Nebraska.
The blog has been busy with Fraser news lately – and I just finished my online class about advanced genealogical research in Scotland. Here’s a review of the class and the low-down on some new directions for my genealogy research.
More stories have turned up in my further research of the Fraser family. One story is from Scotland, the other from Greene County, Iowa.
Almost on a whim, I checked out the ScotlandsPeople data to see if there was anything new for the Campbell family and was delighted to find that Ann’s baptism record had been added to their digital collection about three months ago.
