75 Years ago H. Seigfreid married H. Killian








   
On November 27, 1938 (75 years ago today) Harold E. Seigfreid married Hazel Alice Killian.  

Harold was born on May 5, 1918 in Shickshinny, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania and he died on 30 Jul 1995 in Berwick, Columbia County, Pennsylvania.

Hazel was born on January 30, 1918 in Salem Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania and she died January 12, 1993 in Shickshinny Valley, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

Hazel and Harold are buried next to each other in the Sorber Cemetery, Reyburn, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

Together, they raised two boys Byron and Howard.  They were blessed with grandchildren and many great grandchildren who were the highlight of their lives.  They were the kindest, most generous people that I have ever known.  

It seems like just yesterday they were both here and we were sitting at the kitchen table eating supper together; those are some of my most memorable moments.

Happy Anniversary Baba and Pop!!  I love and miss you more each day!!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

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

5 Tips to Break Down Your Brick Wall

Originally posted at Lost Tree Project as a guest post February 2019. Eventually we all hit a brick wall.  My first brick wall was with Joseph Thomas {my husband's 3rd great grandfather} I spent months searching.  Brick walls can last weeks to months to years.  Below are some quick tips to help you break through that brick wall. Research another ancestor for a while and then go back to your brick wall .  You will see your brick wall ancestor with new eyes. Use a checklist to see if you missed any records.  {You can find my Evernote Research Checklist in my shared genealogy notebook.} Revisit your research.  Maybe you missed a piece of information in a document.  Maybe something seemed like it wasn't important but now that you have more information you find it is important. Learn something new.  It does not need to be genealogy related.  When you shift your thinking to something else and then go back to the brick
