Only two folk are listed in the 1940 Census, but look back a couple of Census years. (1910)

1940 Census–John Hibberd Bartram

April 24, 2012

402, as this next one was referred to. My Great Aunt Anna lived in this house. Although the memories have faded, I know I have been there many times. My grandmother and her sister were very close. Only a couple of weeks ago, we buried a member of this family, in the same cemetery where many of this household are buried.

Family was in this house in the 1920, 1930, 1940, and referred to as living there in 1935. I do have older pictures of this place.

Cheyney / Bartram connection, as well as link to the Henderson’s. My cousin has a Henderson Bible, with lots of great information in it.

New Collections on Ancestry.com

April 23, 2012

Having hear of the agreement between the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Ancestry.com, I was wondering IF or when I might find something of interest to me.

Was cleaning up my mother’s record in my file, adding Photos of the houses that I had taken on Friday, I noticed a shaky leaf, in fact 4 hints to look at. A record from the U.S. Cemetery and Funeral Home Collection [database on-line] Provo, UT, USA, Ancestry.com Operations, Inc, 2011. That was cool, had that. But I was totally taken aback with the next hit.

This is the entry, on the page, from the Church Registry, of my mother’s Baptism.

The very interesting thing here, is that on Friday, past, I took this photo:

I know that Font, both my brother, father and I were Baptized at this same font in 1949. I just happened to take this picture and to find this Church Record is awesome.

The house is across the street and less then half a block from where my mother’s parents lived, when I knew them. I may have actually been inside of this house.
