HerNameIsBuffy posted a topic in Genealogy Club's TopicsLet me preface this by saying I have no knowledge and even less interest in the family trees of the fundies on here so I'm strictly going by name but in the last few months I've made some progress on my trees and discovered that I am both Bontrager (Penna Dutch US line) and Arndt (Germany) adjacent. But the reason I am posting this is last weekend I found a Gotthard. It was a first name, not surname and had the extra T....but if any of my kids ever go mining the old family tree for baby names I will delete that one before letting them log into my ancestry account. Fun fact....my Gotthard was Catholic. I bet David Waller felt a shiver right down the pleat of his carefully pressed khakis at the thought of a Catholic Got(t)hard.
My husband's dad died in 2000, at a very young age. I have searched online to no avail to find his obit through Ancestry, Legacy, and other obit records. I DID manage to find his obit-through a Facebook group. It was a group remembering grads from the high school FIL went to, and one of his classmates had pasted the obit on there, and made it public. I am curious if anyone else has had such trouble finding obits on Legacy etc? My FIL had one, or else it wouldn't have been up there. I just find it strange.
