On Saturday I went to the Family History Center and ordered two microfilms that I found while perusing the LDS site. I found the baptism of my great grandmother, Bridget Naughton and the marriage of her parents, Thomas Naughton and Catherine Ward. They were both from County Galway, Ireland.
What am I hoping to find is the names of any brothers and sisters of Bridget. My father had long spoken of Bridget’s twin sister. I have not been able to find any information about his recollection. He would have been a child at the time so they could have just been sister that resembled each other.
In about two to three week I can expect them to be in, but I know there can be delays. I expect the delays so I will be pleasantly surprised if they come on time. What I am wondering is why every record I find of interest there is no image available? I guess that is just the way it goes.
Today I am going to see about volunteering at the local church diocese. I went on Thursday for a look see and an interview. Today I suppose it could be called an orientation. I ran off a copy of Latin phrases related to genealogy and I have the papers on the old German style of writing.
I am finding it easier to read after taking two classes but I need my “cheat sheet.” More on that later.
