Ideas for you to help with:
1/1/21 Ruth Roles or Rowles. We need more information on her, and we need to find her parents. Ruth Roles, her husband Turner, and daughter Phebe Turner are the line my grandmothers, Elva Peck Payne and Ann Payne Park were working on and looking for before they both died. FamilySearch ID LVS3-CTD
1/1/21 Ebenezar Morse. FindaGrave.com lists a different birthday than Family Search. Update both sites to the right information. FamilySearch ID 2T15-K7R
1/1/21 Ann Kinger. Where did she die? What other information can we find on her? Did she have more children? Only one child is listed.
1/1/21 Salem Witch Trials. We had family living in Salem during the Witch Trials. If you are interested in studying this time period and seeing what records you can find, start with Lydia Adams 2T15-2MX and go a few generations back.

11/13/22 GET A DNA TEST! Better yet... make sure the oldest living family members you have are tested. If you don't understand why, research why... or just trust me, and get it done before they pass away.
