|Bio and Links|
|Years ago, before my children had even started school, I inherited a wonderful genealogy written in French by a nun, Marie Céline Ruel. She was my great-grandmother's first cousin. They were very close, more like sisters, because their mothers were sisters and their fathers were brothers. Céline had traced the Ruel and Goulet families back to the time of arrival of the original ancestors in Canada in the early 1600's. This tome is a fabulous resource that has allowed me to use my French, which had admittedly been neglected since my high school days. While French was my father's first language, he rarely used it at home. |
In 2008, eight years after I received the 1942 "Généalogie de la Famille Goulet-Ruel", I decided it was time to try my hand at genealogy. Years ago, a business partner of mine had mentioned his strong interest in the hobby. However, it wasn't until I started my family tree that I realized how addictive genealogy could be. I loved to play detective! A year and a half later, I became a contributor to Find A Grave. Initially, I concentrated on members of my family tree. However, over time that has evolved such that I also photograph headstones and create memorials for people who are not related to me. Along the way, I have discovered fascinating people in my family tree, including diplomats, knights, artists, actors, writers, and politicians. My tree includes the artist Marc Chagall, author H Rider Haggard, and the premier of Spain Juan Negrin, as well as other intriguing characters.
I am available to assist anyone who has questions about translation of French genealogy records. I am particularly interested in the Ruel families of Québec, New Hampshire, and Maine, as well as the Faherty families of New Jersey who immigrated from County Galway, and can help people researching those families. With regard to transfer of memorials, please see the guidelines posted by Find A Grave, although I am willing to consider transfer of memorials that fall out of those guidelines. Please use the "Edit" button to suggest corrections, additions, or links, or to request transfers. You will receive the courtesy of a reply and a thank you, and I will be happy to include all pertinent, accurate information in my memorials. Please note, however, that I generally avoid transcribing newspaper obituaries from after January 1923, due to copyright issues.
Genealogists help to preserve family history. One of the primary reasons that I started my family tree was to be able to share family history with my children and extended family. With Find A Grave and other genealogy sites, we can share our history with a much larger family. And we make lovely friends and discover living family along the way.

|S.R.F.||RE: Sarah Pursglove|
I will have to re-visit this. Today is my husband's birthday, so I don't have time.
I do have a death location of Yeadon, Delaware, Pennsylvania.
If she is Sarah Alburger, her parents (Adam and Sarah Cassell Alburger) were born in the late 1790s. Her siblings were born before 1830, so I would think the 1828 date given is the correct one. No one gets married at ten years of age.
Also there are several records for a George Pursglove with an Emma Beatty in Camden, Camden, New Jersey.
I have other resources available (MyHeritage and FamilySearch). Maybe there will be other info there.

Thank you for the reply. I think in both John and Victoria's case it was a misread on my part. I apologize for sending faulty info. Mike

|Julie Stevens||Daniel Smith|
Anne I just came upon your memorial on Daniel Smith on Find A Grave. Are you by any chance related to him? He would be my 4x's great grandfather on my dad's side. My father had told me that Daniel was married to a woman that was half Delaware Indian. This was information he was told by his mother (whose maiden name was Hagerman). My father said that Daniel's wife's name was Meshawn. Depending on how many times the story has been told over multiple generations, there's always a small piece of it that stays the same or close to it 😊 when you get a chance I'd enjoy hearing back from you! Have a great day.

|Mary Jo C. Martin||Caroline Schultz #40063976|
Thanks for the information about the erroneous census record for Caroline Schultz. I don't have a lot of time for researching right now, so I have removed the record from her memorial. I would hate to be the source of bad information.
Thanks again for letting me know. I appreciate it.
Regards, Mary Jo
