Family Sampler Update

IMG_3376
I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

  3. I think you have done well with your stitching even though you were sick. Hey I had a UTI that my doctor said I had since I was in the hospital a year prior to them finding it. No symptoms at all!!

Accentuate the Positive 2014 Geneameme

Jill Ball at  GeniAus  posted : Accentuate the Positive 2014 Geneameme Here are my answers: 1.  An elusive ancestor I found -- Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the parents of Rev. Alvah Russel Rutan but I am hoping that 2015 will bring some great clues on where to look so I can find out who they are. 2.  A precious family photo I found was of my Great grandparents.  I love this photo of them!  On the back are their names in her handwriting!!  There is no date either.  I think this was taken at their house in Shickshinny, Pennsylvania. 3.  An ancestor's grave I found was -- No cemetery exploring for me in 2014 but I will be back out there as soon as it gets nice out again!  Unless you count the ones I have been able to find on Findagrave.  I have been lucky enough, recently, to have come across a lot of my Houseknecht's headstones on Findagrave along with some new family members that I have been able to add to my tree.  (

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to  World War II History Network  and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at  Casualty Cards Database. Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found : On the first page it states :  While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.    Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.    To request a card, please send an email to   history.division@usmc.mil   or a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134 .    I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
