I thought this would be a wonderful way to go to the genealogy center and get a little research done that would save me time when I get to New England. I couldn't see using time at libraries in New England if I could conduct the research closer to home. I figured it would give me time to research items that I don't have access to here.
So, I went and I had a great time. I had a list of resources (seven pages) that I had prepared by using the Genealogy Center's website. One of the problems I have is when I go to ACPL I feel I need to take advantage of their resources and I research all over the place. This time I narrowed my research down to two research questions and using the Fold 3 database at the library:
- Who were the parents of Daniel Fenn, that was born circa 1789, possibly in Vermont and married Huldah Rowley 28 Feb 1808 in Shoreham, Addison, Vermont?
- What is the maiden name of Lucy Powers Hyde, who married William Powers?
- Check Fold 3 for the following records:
- Hopkins Rowley-American Revolution
- Jonathan Rowley-American Revolution
- Daniel Fenn-War of 1812
- William Powers-War of 1812
