While doing some research recently at a Family History Center, I stumbled upon a tiny newspaper blurb about one of my 2nd-great-GFs, Paul Mayer. I know he was born in Württemberg, Germany, in 1832, and was on the federal census in 1860. The newspaper blurb was regarding his citizenship, dated 1867.
I’ve just started Module 2 in my NGS course, and it’s about creating a research plan. Looks like I’ll be making a trip to Richmond, IN, soon!
