Treasure Hunts and Serephine Troast

August 19th, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized

I have my name listed on the National Archives site as someone who can help with genealogical research. I really need to remove my name, but today I got a request for someone who is trying to track down if they have are any relatives in America, based on an ancestor who came here from Italy around 1905. I said I couldn’t help them, but then I couldn’t resist taking a look to see what I could find, and of course I went down the rabbit hole and found some present day relatives.

It was fun! And I came across a very interesting person to research, Serephine Troast (maiden name Scuto), who was a lieutenant in the Army during WWII.

But now I must go back to working on the source notes for my book. Some pigeons on my fire escape. I wonder if they are descendants of the pigeons I used to feed.

    I commiserate as I recently had my DNA analysis done to find my ancestrial roots. Well then I had all these possible “cousins” linked to my DNA. This brought a few inquiries and my dive back into old files from my geneology days years ago. Yes, it was fun and I discovered more research from a “cousin” that led all the way back to England. But it is a time consuming process and I’ve put it all away for another day!
