Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I haven't been on the genforum sites for such a long time. Sorry I didn't see this before now. This is very interesting...
My husband's line goes like this, starting with him. Arthur Henry Oakes, b 1937 in Flint, MI; His father, Russell George Oakes, b 1911 in Mio, MI; His father, Henry Otis Oakes, b 1888 in Marlette, MI; His mother, Catherine Alberta Murdick, b 1866 in Marlette, MI; Her father, Henry Murdick had to have been born around 1840's either in NY or Canada, I'm not sure where. I show Henry's wife as Mary Sanford but that's not for sure. I've just ran across that information somewhere in all my searching. Don't have definite proof or anything. Do you know where your Murdicks lived or where they came from? Would sure like to hear from you again. Thanks for answering....
