The Common Room / Re: Ancestry suggestions - complete nonsense!!!!!

"Because some people just aren't very bright."

Exactly.  And if you are reasonably bright, you don't put your tree on Ancestry.  You just use Ancestry as a source of data, as if it were a library and nothing more.  You keep your tree on your own computer and by doing so, you ensure that you are never plagued with hints that are useless or even worse.

There are at least a few birth records online for that time period for a few states  -  e.g., California, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas  .....   Most of them are not complete indices of births but you might get lucky.

If the names of the children are known, why do you need the intervention of the Air Force?  Search for those people online - White Pages or some such.

I'm not sure I want to get into this rather unpleasant exchange but questions about Chilean records have come up before and a RootsChat member with experience in Chile was able to help out.  Maybe you can get in touch with him.

Now that you have three posts under your belt, we can continue this conversation in personal messages since it is of no particular interest to RootsChatters in general.  I will send you a PM now.

Hi, Mauro - Welcome to RootsChat.  I hope DCS will check in soon and find your reply.  I myself have no connection to the Frati family

Here's a shot of the B.H. Chapman homestead in Moundville Twsp., Marquette County, Wisconsin, on the north side of the village of Endeavor at about  4343'44.02"N,  8928'46.69"W.  That's B.H. sitting on the back stoop.  The photo probably was taken before 1880 because B.H. was seriously crippled in a farming accident in 1880 and got around on crutches thereafter.  I don't see any crutches propped up next to him in the photo.

This would have been B.H.'s second house  -  the first was a log cabin located a bit further south at approximately  4343'2.38"N,  8928'8.18"W.  My great grandfather [Hugh Ennis, husband of Charlotte Elizabeth Chapman] later owned that parcel of land and my grandfather wrote about helping to dismantle the original log cabin that was still there in around 1890.
