I love being a family historian! In addition to researching my family's past, I love preserving the present in scrapbooks so that family members will be able to enjoy our family history in the future. I have completed over 90 scrapbooks and 12 family history books. Adding memorials to Find a Grave is a wonderful way to honor our family members as well as providing vital information for future research.
RE: Manuel Gonsalus Yes I am pretty passionate about genealogy and learning all I can about my family. Do you have an email address I can invite you to my ancestry.com. Have you taken the DNA yet. I have on ancestry.
You said your grandfather gonsaulis died in Oklahoma give me some information on him. I live in Oklahoma.
Yes the name has been so many things. Gonzales, Gonsales, Gonsaulis, Gonsalus, Con Salus, Gonsalus - Duk.
That just makes it more difficult lol.
Give me a run down on your line from you back to the Manuel's. Do you come from all four of the Emanuel or Manuels like I do.
Sarah Jeanette Hodge For the next ten years, i.e. until 1943, Sarah diligently investigated her ancestry. Conscious due to her work environment of the need to file papers in public archives, she submitted a genealogy of the Bugh family (her fatherís fatherís mother was a Bugh) in 1941 to the Library of Congress, and then did so again in 1943 with a genealogy of the Hodge family. (These works are now available through digital download services via Amazon.com and Googlebooks.com.) She also joined the Daughters of the American Revolution, citing her descent from Peter Bugh. (She was apparently unaware that James Pearcy, grandfather of Nathaniel Martin, had also served in the war.)
