New Website To Check Out

Have you ever felt like one or more of your ancestors just fell off the face of the earth without a trace? It might be a good idea to do a time-line of events that happened during the last years that you were able to locate them in a given area. Perhaps they lived in a state that had a tornado, floods or droughts. Back in the days of the settlers, maybe there were Indian wars, or skirmishes with the British!

I came across a new website that may be of interest to everyone. It is called are all types of disasters listed there, from natural to manmade events, where you can read about an event and in most cases names of victims lost in the tragic event are listed.  You can search by state, year, or types of events.

You may be able to locate one of your "brickwall" ancestors there!  I went and browsed through the site the other day and was very impressed with the number of articles that are already listed there and more are being added all the time.

So go check it out and let me know what you think about it
