Family Connections

I have been entering stories from Leah Kreinick Jacobowitz's memoir into Geni profiles for the people she discusses. Sometimes I can figure out the dates from her writing, but she is more interested in the emotional experience and the family ties than in the dates, The places are touchpoints for feelings.

There are a couple of relatives also on Geni who have more complete records or memories. Together we are putting together a pretty good family structure and history.

I've been messing with it today too. I've had some good luck finding stuff out about people using Google Books and sometimes Heritage Quest. Let me know if you'd like a tutorial in how to search census stuff online.
