out on a limb

I’m not one for sappy quotes, but this one’s been bouncing around my head as our team has put together this issue: “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” It’s become a cliché now, but Mama Gump was on to something.For most of us, that “box of life” won’t contain presidential meetings, international ping-pong tournaments or successful shrimping companies. But in genealogy (as in life), we can never be sure where a path leads once we begin down it. Researching our past can lead to amazing discoveries—about who our ancestors were then, and about who we are today.This issue focuses on how best to set ourselves up for those discoveries. “Diamonds in the Rough” (page 18) highlights the research potential…

everything’srelative

Marjorie Robie Harshaw, on telling her distant cousin Hugh Harshaw that she found diaries from Hugh’s great-grandfather, James. Those diaries inspired a decade’s-long research project about James Harshaw and his friends in Ireland’s contentious political and religious landscape shortly after union with England. Marjorie chronicled her work in the 2006 book Dwelling Place of Dragons: An Irish Story, and published a second volume, Dueling Dragons: The Struggle for Ireland 1849–1875, in 2018.…

genealogy on the go

Research TipFinding Social Security records is usually as simple as searching the free Social Security Death Index (SSDI). However, don’t despair if you’re having trouble finding your ancestor. He may have fallen into a category of worker not covered by the system prior to 1951. Temporary government workers, farm laborers, domestic workers, workers in US territories, and overseas employees of American companies are all part of this group. And railroad workers, such as my grandfather and his father before him, were covered separately under the Railroad Retirement Board. These workers had Social Security numbers starting with 707 through 729.On the RoadWhile in Oslo, Norway, for a speaking engagement, I had the opportunity to view the world’s best-preserved Viking ships up close at the Viking Ship Museum. Centuries ago, these vessels…

old hat

EXCEPT FOR A HATLESS hiccup during the Roman Empire, men have always worn hats—until the past half-century or so. If you’re too young for your father to have worn hats, your grandfather and great-grandfather no doubt did so. Three of the four men on Mount Rushmore are famously associated with their hats: Washington’s tricorne hat, Lincoln’s stovepipe top hat, Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Rider and Panama hats. As one NPR commentator put it, “American history was made by men in hats.”Hats for men may be out of style today—other than the ubiquitous baseball cap. But their long history suggests that, sooner or later, hats will be back on top.1700818Saint Clement discovers felt. Considered the oldest known textile, felt is the subject of many legends. According to Christian lore, Saint Clement accidently…
