Connecting Descendants with Their Ancestors…Always a Pleasure

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Lori Lee Sauber…a Washington State resident with Hoosier roots.  I was able to connect her with some old family documents that gave her more insight into her Hoosier ancestors’ lives in the early to mid 1800s.  This is hands down the best part of my job!  She contacted our historical society well in advance of her trip, enabling me to pull items for her to review, thus a major time-saver.  In the photo below, only a small portion is shown of the table of items we examined.  I was thrilled to be a part of her journey!  Follow her story by clicking on her name above.

I would be remiss if I did not tell you about the L2Scrollio!  I asked Lori Lee if she could bring one so I could see it in person.  I got to check out her very own L2Scrollios!  She created these on her own, a very creative and ingenious tool for any researcher.  And, as she conducted her research, she did refer to her L2Scrollios when determining different ancestors who had the same names.  I could envision this as a very handy visual at family reunions when explaining to your cousins who your 3rd-great-grandparents are or explaining generations removed.  I’m a believer!  For more info, just click on her name up above.

I thoroughly enjoyed spending the morning researching with Lori Lee and am so happy that she was able to visit our historical society and county.  Not only was this trip beneficial for Lori Lee but I also benefited as a researcher by learning more about her ancestors, knowledge I will be able to share with future guests and descendants of this family.  Win-win!

    Yes, no genealogist is worth their salt without the support of those who are managing our nation’s records. Loved this experience so much! And thanks for the L2Scrollio review, too.
