Got Olive Tree Genealogy?
If you are researching New England, New York, New Netherland or Dutch ancestors, then you need Olive. Olive Tree Genealogy that is.
This is a big shout out to my fellow geneablogger and (distant) cousin, Lorine McGinnis Schulze of Olive Tree Genealogy, Olive Tree Genealogy Blog and Ask Olive Tree Genealogy a Question.
If you have New Netherland roots, then you need Olive Tree Genealogy. Lorine has spent oodles of time putting terrific and accurate information on her Olive Tree Genealogy website plus relevant links to other resources and websites. The best part is that it is all FREE!
Thanks to her, I have found some Schenectedy Reformed Dutch Church baptism and marriage transcripts for my Ryckman ancestors.
But wait...even if your ancestors didn't come from these places, you still need to check out Olive Tree Genealogy because Lorine had tons of information on immigration, passenger lists, military, Quakers, Palatine, Huguenots, and more! This is a resource you cannot afford to miss.
Also, Lorine is the author of five family history books. If you are researching the Van Slyke family, I highly recommend Lorine's book The Van Slyke Family in America. Not only is it full of facts with documented sources, it is also interesting reading. I have been able to add six more generations to my family history because of the information in this book.
Want to know what's going on with genealogy, or some good advice on how to do genealogy or where to find databases? Then check out Lorine's blog Olive Tree Genealogy Blog. You will find all sorts of good information here that you can have delivered right to your email inbox or favourite blog reader, just by subscribing.
Did I mention how helpful and friendly Lorine is? If you have a genealogy question, you can send it to Ask Olive Tree Genealogy a Question. Everyday, Lorine chooses one question to answer and posts it on her blog.
The genealogy and geneabloggers communities are blessed to have Lorine and Olive Tree Genealogy. Thanks Lorine for all you do!
