Awhile ago I was searching through a german website postings on something arranged alphabetical. You know when you visit these sites it takes twice as long because you have to get the small translations from an exterior website just to manage through their sites. Unless your basically familiar with the commonly used german terms for online sites.
Well any waya,b,c,d,e,f,g,h and I had maybe started with "k" or and was skipping and then I was at 'J' and going backward. I kept getting 'H'. Ohhhhhff where is "I" .What am I doing wrong, [sigh] lets see.... I'll try it again. And then came to the Duh moment. Oh yeah, " I" is the same as 'J'. It was not in the alphabet all alone. Especially, when your transcribing the old church records, I should have known that. It is up to you to decide if it is a' J' or an 'I' in what you are translating. Such as is it Isabel or Jesebel? [Or is it Isable, Or Jeseble?]
Sure that was a special site, and you will often find lists under'I' as well as 'J' in most cases. I just had a little reminder, that's all, which I thought I'd share today.
When you wake up, maybe you'll like to read my next post about an encounter at another German site.
As a young bookworm, day dreaming child, I always wondered about the cousins that I thought I must have in Germany [ Bleckede and Luneburg].
I was able to start Genealogy with computer around 2001, I still have limited knowledge in computer technology, grammer, spelling, and in the genealogy techniques.
I make up for my limits by my persistence in wanting to share all I can. Also by my persistence in my search.
I have discovered the family members of the 'Meyer Book'. I am still hoping to meet so many more of this vast family.
I started this blog to serve the need I have to talk about my details of genealogy [journal] of all my surnames. Especially the locations of family settlements.
Your warned, that there will be discussions of the details of the problem situations with the surnames I have had, etc. I am known to talk and talk about it until my family and friends eyes glaze over. I guess this blog may help save them from too much of that.
I hope family will join in help problem solve and share more of the various family stories and insights and ideas. Non family as well.
I have put the information out there and now I am waiting for family to come.
