Today and for the past few days, I have been working almost exclusively on my Keck history. I am working my way back to my patriot ancestor on the Keck line to allow me to join the DAR. I have been to a meeting and I found it to be a wonderful experience.
The first meeting that I had the pleasure to attend happened to be a very special meeting. The local chapter was dedicating a new monument to a Real Daughter of the American Revolution: Catherine Robards Stirman who died in 1900 but whose grave remained unmarked until Saturday, April 18, 2009.
I am still in the process of getting all my genealogy information into TMG. Last year, I completely restarted with a blank genealogy file and started by adding in all my information that I knew and that my mom and dad knew about the family. Then, I began going through the old clippings, documents, and photos that I had and adding in information that they provided. Also, I have begun adding in information from other sources that I have found online through my ancestry subscription or through other sources at the library or other locations.
The photo shown above is of Andrew and Isy Bolinger Keck. I obtained this photo online from Ancestry. Andrew is the son of my patriot Keck ancestor, Conrad Frederick Keck. I only like a few more sources and I think I will have my proof for my Keck line. I am requesting some copies from a library. More info to come when I hear back from them!
More to come soon,
