Here is more info on the family as sent to me offlist by "AngelWings".Angelwings indicated she had lots of information but only wanted to see if there was any interest in this family.
This galls me to no end.After my OWN some 30 years of genealogy research and help to others seeking, it has always been my belief to post information found, NOT ONLY for anyone interested TODAY, but to post within the archives of genealogy sites specific information found to enable someone that searches tomorrow, next week, next year, or in 10 years or more SOME information that had been collected.My searches on GenForum have recently been to correct WRONG research by one "Shotgun", Judy... that posts wrong links, wrong family, etc.I have posted for many years on Rootsweb under this email address AND RBestrom@IX.Netcom.Com.Thousands.I also have posted the last 10-14 years on the Norway List.Before that on individual boards, before the real advent of Internet boards.I WILL NOT post a teaser to see who is interested.
I don't know what else is in the boxes of Christianson, Childs, etc:
Howard Smith, married Adaline Christianson (Adaline was a dress designer) they had the following child; Elaine Marie Smith born 12 Sept 1920 died 1 Mar 1944 in Seattle, King, Wash. She never married.
Lyman Melville Chitty born 8 Mar 1899 in Ottawa , Canada, married 4 Oct 1924 in Everett, Snohomish co., Wa. to Adeline Leota Christianson. They had the following child: Elaine Marie Smith born 12 Sep 1920.
Adeline was married twice.
NOW, if you have a connection to these people or the family that I identified in the previous email from Census research, contact Angelwings with YOUR INTEREST.
