Look in the Mirror for Clues (Genealogy) #gagenealogy #georgiapioneers

Look in the Mirror for Clues

mirrorEveryone retains genes from their ancestors. Generally, as they taught us in school, one first takes from the parents, then the grandparents. The first two generations of these traits are readily identified, especially with the help of siblings! It is easy to see if one the big ears of Aunt Mary, or the ruddish complexion of Uncle John. A collection of old photographs is also helpful. Then, of course, the genealogist discovers the port of embarkation and where the families first settled. Notably, Quakers landed in Philadelphia and traveled through Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. The Scotch-Irish also landed in Pennsylvania and moved through the Carolinas, Georgia and into the western mountains of Virginia. Also, German families, who settled Pennsylvania, and Virginia. It is remarkable how religious congregations and others immigrating during wars or historical events, preferred certain sections of the country, following earlier settlers. Thus, a little research into the history of how America was settled is a great asset to the genealogist.
