Iam researching my husband's family Pashalidis or as it should be spelled Paschalidis his grandfather Christos Paschalidis was from Pontios Greece which is in present day Turkey any help would be appreciated.
At the same time I am doing research on both my father's and my mother's family.My mother's is very difficult because she was adopted and I haven't been able to find records.She was born Letha Inez Mixon in 1908 ,adopted by Herman and Lillian Knittel.Herman was a baker by trade from Germany and Lillian Trousdale was a nurse,they lived in Waco,Texas , San Antonio,Texas, Laredo,Texas and Galveston,Texas.
When my mother applied for Social Security she could not find birth or adoption records the only records she could find was for a school in Waco when she was 6 years old.
My father's is much easier I have found everthing from both his father and his mother's side.
His father's family is decended from Isaac Rogers and Eleanor McDonald married in Boston,Mass.11 Nov 1752.
His Mother's family is decended from John Berry Sr. and 3rd wife Hannah Devore married 8 May 1830.
