Family Genealogy Queries: Sampler No. 3: Yet more family history mysteries from the South (Southern Genealogical Research)

by R. Stephen Smith

Genealogy queries are a time-honored way for family researchers to share information with others working on the same lines. A typical query includes information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories that have been passed down through the years!

Many an amateur (or professional) genealogist has been able to fill in blanks on a family tree thanks to the information found in queries such as those reproduced here, which originally appeared in a noted southern (U.S.) query magazine published in the 1990s (now out of print).

This inexpensively priced sampler (which follows the well-received first and second samplers in the series) is aimed at showing the types of information contained in the queries that appeared in the magazine, and in the surname-specific volumes in this series.

    by Edward Madden

    Edward Madden was a combat medic in the 90th Infantry Division. He landed in Normandy on June 8, 1944. After almost succumbing to combat fatigue due to the horrors of the first battle he was in, he pulled himself together, and despite several close calls, survived the next 11 months with the division that suffered the third highest rate of casualties in the European Theater of Operations. A truly modest hero, Ed recounted his story to oral historian Aaron Elson at a reunion of the 90th Infantry Division.
