out on a limb

They say change is the only constant. Winter turns to spring, and one year rolls over to the next. With that in mind, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Andrew, and I’m the new editor in chief of Family Tree Magazine.A little about me: I’m a second-generation American on my father’s side, and a fifth-generation Cincinnatian on my mother’s. I’ve always been passionate about my family’s history, especially the stories of my grandparents’ immigration to the United States in the early 1950s. I have German, English and Irish roots, and dream of visiting my ancestral homeland in the Banat region of Romania.We see big changes in the genealogy industry, too. Mega-websites like Ancestry (page 22) and FamilySearch (page 25) continue to evolve as record collections come online and…

WOW! THE JAN./FEB. ISSUE WAS AWESOME! Although I’ve researched for many years, this issue filled in a few blanks in the grey matter. The magazine has been recommended to our society members, our FHL, the county library and countless others. And now, a team of county “history detectives” who are working on the sesquicentennial book. Such a quality magazine is priceless!

everything’s relative

IN JUNE 1963, CAMELOT CAME HOME. John F. Kennedy, the first Irish-Catholic president of the United States, visited his ancestral hometown of New Ross, Ireland. He arrived to great fanfare, with an honor guard of Irish cadets to greet the president as he stepped off Air Force One. “It took 115 years to make this trip, and 6,000 miles and three generations,” Kennedy said in an address in New Ross. “When my great-grandfather left here to become a cooper in east Boston, he carried nothing with him except two things: a strong religious faith, and a strong desire for liberty. And I’m glad to say that all of his great-grandchildren have valued that inheritance.”While in Ireland, he also visited his family’s ancestral home and had a garden party with his…

stepping into history

Great GadgetsStudents in my genealogy-technology classes often bring along their latest finds for a bit of show-and-tell. One enthusiastic gentleman let me try his Oculus Go Standalone Virtual Reality Headset. For a few minutes, I was transported to a historic cathedral in Milwaukee, Wis., thanks to 360-degree imagery he’d shot with his Samsung Gear 360 VR camera. This technology has limitless potential application for family history. Envision your great-grandchild touring the home you live in or walking down your street. If only this gadget had been around in 1850.Cemetery SerendipityMy great-grandfather Henry Burkett and his second wife, Rachel, along with his father Isaac and Isaac’s wife, Catherine, rest at the Brick Memorial Park Cemetery in Randolph County, Ind.—or so the records said. We pulled into the cemetery’s narrow lane and…
