Challenges & Collaborations

Since I began blogging I have participated in the following challenges, collaborations and other topics shared by multiple bloggers:

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks (2014-2015 and 2017)

Honor Roll Project Contributions (ongoing)

Worldwide Genealogy -- A Genealogical Collaboration (2014-2016)


  1. Hello, I'm looking for an email address or other contact information for Schalene Dagutis. Is that you? I have information about Rose Etta Poole and her family.

  2. .. continuing - I am Dick von Briesen, Kingston, Ontario,

  3. Looking for parents of Jabez Beard (1790-1854), born in Bedford County, Virginia. Married to Sally Wilkes (1798-1885) in Bedford County, Va. They migrated to Lauderdale County, Ala. Their son (Abner) was married to Serena (Cerena) Howell. I noticed several "Beard" names married to "Howell" family members in the Tangled Roots and Trees Blog and hope someone out there can break my rock wall down. This has been my ancestry dilemma since 2000. HELP!!! Ed Beard

    1. Ed,

      As I replied on your other comment. I do not have "your" Jabez and Abner Beard in my tree, though I do have several men named Jabez and Abner Beard. Have you tried contacting the Bedford County Museum and Genealogical Library in Bedford?

    2. Thanks Schalene. I'll give it a shot. Ed
