Halifax, Nova Scotia, Nov 25, 1854

My last blog was concerning a family who died in Demerara, British Guiana in 1854.

In the same Acadian Recorder newspaper there was a list of people who also died.

Perhaps someone will recognize these names as being part of their family tree.

Thank You.

By Jose A Munoz

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.


  1. Jose, you are so good at chasing down others…what can you find about this woman “Laura Nelson” who’s lynching has become a part of an art exhibit in Indy? She was from Oklahoma…

    1. I put her name in Laura Nelson on a Google Search and lots of items came up. I will see what else I can find out. I hadn’t heard about the story, thanks for pointing it out.


  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
