Motivational Monday: Belgium
- My 3rd great-grandmother, Catherine Scheer Kollin was born 14 July 1822 in Belgium. She married Jacob Kollin and died 21 Jan 1901 in Bennington Center, Wyoming, New York. I am visiting Belgium in a few weeks and was hoping to visit her home town, except that I have no idea how to do research on Belgium and I kind of forgot I wanted to research it when I booked my plane ticket 5 months ago, so it wasn't looking good. With some help from an Ancestry.com member tree and the website Messancy, I found her parents and place of birth, Messancy. Belgium. She also has ancestors who lived in Sprinkange, Luxembourg and Mondercange, Luxembourg. This week I need to look into these areas and plan a day trip there from Belgium.
- I am tremendously close to finishing my sourcing from my Whitehead binder. I should be able to finish it by the end of Sunday.
- I also need to work on organizing my blog categories. At the very least I would like to finish updating the surname category.
