Has anyone ever had any contact with Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog?  I'm trying to reach the owner but no success so far.

Thanks, Genealiza.  I found that address and sent an email but have gotten no reply.  So frustrating.

The last blog post concerns a book he has written about the Scholes family of Moundville Twp., Marquette County, Wisconsin.  If there is one place that features large in my ancestry, it has to be Moundville Twp., Marquette County, Wisconsin.  The Scholes farm was located near the Bennettt and Watson farms; they are closely related to me by marriage and all of them seem to have been part of the Potters' Immigration Society which attempted to relocate underemployed English potters to the United States.  I note also that he has connections to the Audiss and Hull families; so do I.  But to top it all off, he has a "story" about the Endeavor Christian Academy which was founded by my great aunt and her husband.  One could even say that for a while it was the family business - almost everyone either attended as a student or worked there as a teacher.

I'm sure we could exchange lots of information so I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that he eventually replies.

When I was first starting my ancestry search, I sent a query to William Wade Hinshaw, about my Quaker relatives.  I had no idea who he was, but he did send me a reply and pointed me in the right direction to find the records I needed.  There are those out there that are more than willing to help, no matter how busy they are.  Hopefully, Mr. Midwest will take the time to give you a reply.

Were you looking for the book? Farther down the page he said one of his books was available at lulu.com, so I looked there. $18.24 US

Have you tried writing an actual letter?  A letter from out of the country might stand out more than 1 email among dozens.
