I'm sorry but the Pinkhams of Maine never interested me. I exclusively studied the Pinkhams of New Hampshire. When they went to Maine, I stopped looking at them. The Pinkham Genealogy of 1908 delves into the Pinkhams of Maine quite a lot which is another reason I never studied them. You might check there.
Yes, he wrote a whole article on the knightly family of Felbrigge and how the Bures family must be a cadet branch of the knightly family. However, there are no probates for the Felbrigges so we can only be certain from Thomas Felbrigge on. His paternity is questionable, either an Edward or a Robert. But he names sons both names. So, you have to assume that somehow the Philibricks descend from this knightly family.
Well someday I hope to see all of Ireland, both the republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Someday. I have two pdfs of Lawrences charts from PRONI if you want them. Just send me your email and I'll pass them along to you.
We are doubly related. I descend from Martha Lawrence and Finlay Sinclair. This is a case where two brothers married two sisters. Are you still in Ireland? I haven't visited yet, but plan to. I'm in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Thanks for writing.
Hello Dave. Just saw your latest article in TAG. Congratulations. So why haven't you found the English origins of John Elderkin yet?

Good to hear from you. Congratulations upon your retirement. Good luck with your continued research. Merry Christmas.
I'm sorry, but I do not have any information on Connecticut Burroughs families outside of the Barrows family which moved there. I'm fairly certain there is a printed genealogy on Robert Burrows of Weathersfield however.
Sure I'm still interested. thanks.

I would try used book dealers on the web such as or Otherwise try your local genealogical library and just copy the appropriate pages you need.
The sources at the bottom are there so that you can look up where I got this information. You should NEVER EVER believe anything on the Internet without checking up on it. The 1590 birth date of John Smith is based on his first marriage date to Isabel Drake ca. 1615. Isabel Drake's birth date of 1579 is based on her burial record which states that she was 60 in 1639. However, that information is believed to be inaccurate and inflated by more than a decade. Read the sources I cited.
It is the Old Cemetery in East Bridgewater, next to the Central Cemetery on Central Street in East Bridgewater. I am a Corbett descendant as well. Have a safe journey home.
Joshua Barrows's son Thomas married a Dorcas Slack at Attleborough on 14 October 1740. That would also be a family connection.

The citation is right there in footnote #2. the originals are either in Concord at the State Archives or at the Cheshire County Historical Society, I would guess. I just used the book.
I'm sorry, but I don't have any information on this family.

I finally found this couple in the census because I used the house number from the birth of their children (Vrbovce 578). That gave Alzbeta the birth year 1825. However, despite searching the records from 1824-1831, I could only find one candidate, and that Alzbeta was the sister of the Jan Valuch Malarik who becomes her husband. Or is it? What if the Jan Valuch Malarik is badly identified? More work needs to be done on this couple.
This Alzbeta turns out to be the one born 4 October 1814, daughter of Jan and Alzbeta (Kalka) Tomecek. The 20 August 1870 death record is clearly the wife of Pavel Chodur Dolinsky and gives the maiden name as Tomecek and age as 56. That combined with the marriage record gives the birth years from 1814-1816. The 1869 census information of 1809 must be an outlier and was somehow incorrect. Jan Tomecek and Alzbeta Kalka were married at Vrbovce on 22 November 1813, thus making Alzbeta their eldest child. One more down, just one to go.
The American Genealogist. It's a national genealogical journal.
Im not sure if I ever sent you all my Tura Luka ancestry. Its possible we descend from a family other than the Holics. It would be nice to link up, but I know I only go back as far as the 1730s (in two lines), so . . . . Thanks for the wonderful comment. Bounce anything off me, you have my email.

Even if I werent moving on, Im in the same bind I always was. When you have the time you dont have the money and when you have the money, you dont have the time. Having started over at the bottom, this year I get but two weeks of vacation, followed by several years of three weeks, before I return to the four weeks I used to get. Only at that level can you spend a few days at Salt Lake City doing real research. I think by taking a step back and leaving the Internet world, I just may want to do this again in twenty years. Or not. Martin

Also the gravestones should have arrows saying my second husband or my first wife.

They lived in New York City (Brooklyn and Manhattan). It is curious. But because it is not labeled Ill never be certain whos in the photo. Thanks for your help.

There are four different Burt men who emigrated to Massachusetts in the 17th century: Henry of Springfield, Hugh of Lynn, James of Taunton, and Richard of Sudbury. Since Lynn is the closest to Boston you can try Hugh who appears in the Great Migration 1634-35 I:501-4. His children would be the father of this William chronology-wise, and they are not continued, nor are they in Snow-Estes. Only one William Burt appears in Torreys Marriages, but I dont have the full set at hand to see what source Torrey used. I think the main clue is that James Wood was of London. Boston has a huge 17th century population of people just passing through. However, the Hugh Burt family was from Dorking, Surrey, not too far from London, and Hugh Burt received a legacy from his brother John of London. There may be a connection. Im not expert enough on gravestones to know why any two people would share a gravestone.

That seems like a possibility except why did the children stay so long? The one in the Holic household is 7 and well past breast feeding. Its times like these I wish I spoke Slovak and could contact some local Slovak history center.
