So in the last month I’ve made a few discoveries in the last month. I have managed to trace Robert Maxfield’s (Chris’ grandfather) brothers. They are Albert Edward Maxfield, Frederick Maxfield, William Maxfield and Edward Maxfield. I am now looking into them individually.
Also, I have been contacted by Chris’ third cousin. Her mother is the sister of Robert Maxfield’s mother, Sarah Emma Steele. Unfortunately no link to the Maxfield family due to the age differences between the sisters. However a lot of information regarding the Steele family which I am eager to delve into.
My mother-in-law has done an Ancestry DNA test. She was adopted, she has managed to find out her biological parents and sisters however the rest of the family is still a mystery. The DNA test is currently in the lab being processed and I am looking forward to see what the results are.
Familysearch is doing another Worldwide Indexing Event. There goal this year is to have atleast 72,000 volunteers index as many records as possible in 72 hours between July 15th – July 17th. I will be taking part in this and looking forward to it. If your interested, please see this article.
I am in Wales for the next 2 weeks hoping to do lots of researching whilst here. Also, I’m hoping to get some plans for my blog underway shortly. Depending on money ofcourse.
Until next time. Cya later
