OTG What's New in March 2005
- Hi everyone
It's been a busy month. VOlunteer transcribers have been busy typing
up databases for Olive Tree Genealogy, but I have only just begun to
put them online.
I also started a new mailing list for the surname BARHEIT. If you
are a descendant of this name, you might want to join the list by
sending a message
to BARHEIT-L-request@... that contains the word
and nothing else.
Did I mention I took over the NY ORPHANGES mailing list? The list
administrator left, it needed an admin, so..... I adopted it. I hate
to see a list flounder! People can subscribe to the list in mail
mode by sending a message to NY-ORPHANAGES-L-request@...
that contains the word
and nothing else.
SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS
Today I uploaded the following ships passenger lists:
Passenger List of Vicksburg, Liverpool to Quebec Canada 1875
Passenger List of Koophandle, Antwerp Belgium to New York 1850
Passenger List of Brig Planter, Amsterdam Holland to New Orleans
I'm working away at the various databases and getting them online as
fast as I can, but please be patient with me.
RAMSGATE ENGLAND NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS
I just finished putting newspaper clippings from Ramsgate Kent
England newspapers from 1908 to 1922 online on my site.
These English newspaper clippings were found in my grandmother's
papers. Her mother Sarah Jane (Stead) Simpson lived in Ramsgate Kent
England from her birth in 1862 to her death in 1952, and kept these
clippings of births, deaths, marriages and memoriams from 1907 to
1922 (with gaps).
Some are Births, Marriages and Deaths of my English ancestors. I
decided to type up all the clippings to share these genealogy
announcements with others who are searching for their English
Locations mentioned in these clippings include Australia, Ontario
Canada and other parts of England.

Kent England 1907 - 1922" Enjoy!
