We have some great new Family Resources on our Free Databases that might just help you in your research.

We start with Roger Blocks’ Block and Eaton in 2009: A Family History. This 876 page document contains an exhaustive account of the Eaton and Block families in Europe, early America to modern day, with tables of unique surnames, places where family members were born, photographs and an excellent bibliography.

Ancestors of Charles Salomon; Descendants of Charles Salomon in the 20th Century by Judith Trinklein Cunningham includes a hand-drawn family tree and the family of Charles and Martha Rahdert Salomon family of Fort Wayne.
Eden
Here we have a photograph of Frank Eden (1866-1961) and wife Mary (Myers). Frank was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana and became a Unitarian minister. He served churches in Kansas and Oklahoma before moving to California, where he died. We also have Alfred and Sarah Walker photographs, including the reverse sides of the photos.

Jackie Weeden and Ruby Nelson began collaborating in 1989 and both encountered Whaley records that did not necessarily dovetail into their direct lines, but might for someone else. The nearly 1,000 family group sheets of the Weeden/Nelson Whaley Family Group Sheet Archives were forged from their diligence and generosity. Both Jackie and Ruby are now deceased, but their research lives on at The Genealogy Center’s website!

Michael Lutz has donated seven new items to the free Family resources, starting with From Benjamin Franklin to Mary Morell Folger to Scottish Royalty to Carmen Linda Lutz which follows the line from the Folger family through the Colemans and Cathcarts to the Luce-Lutz family. Next is From Charles Martel to Charlemagne to Carmen Linda Lutz, which follows the Trowbridge-Prowse family to the Lutz family and From Colonel Israel Angell to Joel Burlingame to Carmen L. Lutz  which includes Burlingame, Hinman, Luce and Lutz families. From Eli Willard Benway to Carmen Linda Lutz covers the Benway, Ratliff and Lutz family, and From Rev. Roger Williams to a Lot of Angells to a Couple of Luce Women to Carmen Lutz (Another Angel), which covers the line from Roger Williams to the Angell family and then to the Luce-Lutz family. From Judge Bowling Green, Abraham Lincoln's Friend and Mentor to Carmen Linda Lutz connects the Green-Batchley family to the Benways, and From Mayflower Ancestors to Carmen L. Lutz connects the Cooke, Warren, Taber, Earle and Baker families into the Burlingames.

Finally, we have two new Ewing photo albums and three additional sources in Ewing Legacy Images. Few of the photos are identified in the two photo albums. The other sources include a Memoranda book containing addresses, "Recollections of Malvern" (England), containing sketches from in and around Malvern, and the Enfield Public High School Class of 1901 graduation program from Hartford County, Connecticut.

As always, we greatly appreciate all of these wonderful donations!
