Genealogy by the States – Week 38 – Colorado

Sunday, September 22, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Colorado. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Colorado. If you don’t have any connections to Colorado, find a Colorado resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 9/22/2013 – 9/28/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

The Colorado State University can be proud of their digital collections. They have a variety of records which can be useful for those looking for their ancestors and for learning about how their ancestors lived while in Colorado. These include;

If you have ancestors from Colorado, be sure to check out this valuable resource.

The Nebraska State Historical Society has a number of searchable databases on it’s website which include;

Almost Wordless Wednesday: Cabinet Card of a Young Woman

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

Can you help identify this woman? I have a few questions about the photo.

  • What is the approximate date the photo was taken?
  • What is the approximate age of the woman in the photo?
  • What is the photographers name? I can easily read Oscar. Is the last name Dummar?
  • It looks like a real formal photograph. What might have been the occasion for the photo?

If you have any thoughts about this photo, I would love to hear from you.

My only link to the state of Nevada is through a second cousin one time removed. We both descend from John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp of New Britain, Connecticut. Since she may still be living and I have not been able to contact her, I will leave her name off of this post. She was married for the first time in 1948 in Reno Nevada.
