Aric's Ancestors-Lomax Line

So, I finally opened up my Lomax file that I recieved via e-mail from a J. Lomax in California, and started looking through it. I added Aric's name to see where he fit into all of it, and he is actually a direct descendent of the Thomas Lomax I mentioned in an earlier post. Aric would be the great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson. So the 10th generation.

It has been a while, but I'm back at it!

So, the school term is over for the holidays, and I think I am all settled in for a few weeks off. I am ready to start digging into my research again, and start filling in this tree. My first plan of attack is to go through my Lomax info, and sort it all out, and update Geni as much as I can.

Wish me luck, and I will keep everyone posted!

J.B. Lomax

Today I heard back from Mr. Lomax in California. What a huge hep that was! He actually e-mailed me the entire file of his family tree, so i now have all of the data for the Lomax ancestors, dating back to 1701! This was my first big find, and it was so exciting! Can't wait to go through it all and get it all entered for everyone else to enjoy!

Descendants of Jorg Martin Dallenbach (Abbott Ancestors)

I have continued my research from yesterday into the early hours of the mornign, and started again as soon as I woke this morning. Today I have found a vast amount of information on Jorg Martin Dallenbach and his 11 children. I have spouses and childrens names for 7 out of 11 of them.

I have also seen their last names spelt as Dillenback, so I will have to do some research to be sure it is all correct, I am nearly positive at this point that Dallenbach is the correct spelling.

Time to go enter them all into our tree.

Lomax Family Tree update!

Ok, so I have found out that the "Living" relatives are listed as living for identity theft reasons. So the tree I found is in fact relatives, names are just kept out. So I have uncovered a wealth of information that will probably take me the rest of my life to go through! I am going to start on the enormous adventure Tuesday, when I can print off pages at school! I am so excited that I found this and can share it with everyone!

The tree owner, has also published 4 books on his ancestors, I will get the names and titles of them and post them for all to see.

Ancestors of john Lucchetti

So after I couldn't manage to look at Abbott ancestors, I moved onto Lucchetti. All I did was type in Frank Lucchetti (Grandpa John's fathers name) and I think I found a tree for us dating back to 1701!

The tree is titled Thomas Lomax and his Descendants, and like I said, dates back to 1701! Lomax is, Ken's great grandma Evelyn's last name. Looking closer at this tree, the first thing that caught my eye was that there is a Male Living Abbott married to a living Lucchetti, with 3 children. I instantly thought that this had to be Mike and Sue and the kids. When I looked closer, there is a Frank Lucchetti married to a Living Beyer, with 5 kids (Grandma Kay, and all of their kids). All of these 5 kids have places for their children, but nobody has names.

So, I e-mailed the gentleman who is the owner of this tree, asking for some information, and told him that I think I have the information to finish up these branches of his tree! I will let you all know when I hear back from Mr. John Lomax, of California!

Ancestors of Bruce Abbott

So, tonight was my first real effort of looking for descendants of my husband. I started with his grandfather (his father's father) and found about 55-60 relatives. I checked some sources,and found most of them are guaranteed ancestors. Not 100% sure of all of them, but it definatly makes sense! I tried to send out an e-mail to a man who has a Tree on RootsWeb, but the e-mail came back and said it was an invalid address. Bummer.
