Now that's interesting!  I'll have to give it a shot.  I suppose you never know what you'll find...

Comment by Pam Beveridge on January 28, 2013 at 4:19pm

No - but you might find things related to your ancestors on there.  For instance, I was able to buy my great grandmother Watt's childhood Bible!  I've bought a lot of genealogical items on there, 99.9% not related to my family, but I blog about them, hopefully for the benefit of other folks.  heirloomsreunited.blogspot.com

My question is even more basic than that.  Are you saying eBay has genealogical data?

Comment by Pam Beveridge on January 28, 2013 at 2:52pm

When you search for something on eBay, there's an option for you to save the search.  You could do individual words or a multiple words.  Make sure you check the option to search the title AND description.  You have to go to the Advanced Search screen to find these options.  Good luck!

Thanks Pam.  I will take a look at the link you provided and let you know how i make out.  Not sure I understand the comment about eBay... Can you  tell me how that works?

Have you tried Daniel F. Johnson's newspaper transcriptions?  http://archives.gnb.ca/Search/NewspaperVitalStats/default.aspx?cult...

What a service he performed for us!  Sadly, he died too soon.

The only other thing I can say is to keep checking back where you have checked before as more and more records go online all the time.  And maybe try a Google alert of your combined search terms just in case, and an eBay alert.

I'm looking for more information on an ancestor named Ebenezer Swan.  He was born in the mid 1780's, possibly in the Boston area.  By 1814, he had moved/settled in Northumberland County where he owned 1/2 interest in saw mill, land & house, on Black Brook near the mouth of Okains River in the Parish of Newcastle.  He sold his share to one of the co-owners, Jared Betts, that year for 400 Pounds.  He married Hannah Whitlock, daughter of Solomon, that same year in St. Mary's Parish, New Brunswick.  I have not been able to find the record for this marriage.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

From online sources, whether true or not, Elizabeth Deliverance Clark's parents  were William and Ruth (Goodwin) Clark, he 1724-1769 and she 1737-1769.  Another member on here, Kathy, told me that her NB relatives moved west because of sickness or an epidemic.  Also, someone would move west, come back for a visit and tell everybody about the opportunities.  Congrats on the reunited heirloom!  Another member here, Leasa, is researching Carsons of NB.  Have you gotten as far back as John and Elizabeth (Meader) Hanson of Knoxmarsh, Dover, NH? Elizabeth supposedly wrote a book about the attack on her family by Indians in 1724 (?) when John as away.  Two sons were killed, and the rest of the family carried off.  Our ancestor, Isaac, was young enough that they spared him apparently.  John the father spent the rest of his life getting his family back and managed to get all but one.  He died while on a trip to get the last daughter.  John was a Quaker, in an area where Quakers were not popular. The book was most likely written by a minister and given a very religious, anti-Indian bent.  But if she really wrote it, it would be the first by a woman born in North America, I heard.  http://english.byu.edu/facultysyllabi/KLawrence/HANSON.pdf

I have been searching and searching to find an article written by one of my ancestors who served in French and Indian war.  I think he was a Hanson of Charlotte County, and he was interviewed by a local paper when he was very elderly.  So far, no luck.  It was fascinating.

Todd House B&B, guess we are related.  John Clark Hanson was brother to William Hanson 1766-1857.  Clark comes from Elizabeth Deliverance Clark which is far as I go.  My other side has a Clark that comes from Eastport Joseph and William Clarks who migrated from Great Island, New Hampshire. Following those Clarks has been "troublesome".

I did get to make a trip up the Maine Coast this October and get the town placements established in my head.  Bocabec doesn't seem to exist.  I thought Minister Island was great, and had some good help in St. Andrews.  I am still not sure what the pressures were to move towards Toronto in 1840s except Benjamin Milliken's son, Norman had started a Mill in Markham area.  A little later [1851], William Carson left for California gold but ended being a lumber mill operator in Eureka. Supposedly he was from the St. Andrews/Bocabec area.

Lastly, about a year ago I help author an article for a SF homeowner's paper.  As a result and internet searches by a relentless person, just last month I recovered a lost scrapbook found at a storage unit, 20 years ago that covered the life of my Great Aunt who was a rather notorious, bohemian sculptress.

I have Haley, Clark, McCarty and MacDonalds on both sides of the border and in Charlotte and Carlton counties.

If anyone knows of them I would love to talk.
