Treasure Chest Thursday
Now that the holidays are over I am going to focus more on my family tree. I am going to go through my family history book and see what documents I am missing… birth, death, marriage certificates, obituaries, etc.
The one particular person who is driving me crazy is my great great grandfather Mathis Knaus. I have bogged about him before see link http://tracingdescendants-blog.blogspot.com/2009/11/madness-monday.html
I do not have a death date just an idea of when he died. I sent away what information I have on him to the N.J archives hopefully they will find a death record on him.
He is number one on my list.
