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
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.

The Gentlemen of the Building Committee of the School. A real treasure. I would just love to know the story of each of them... Dapper gentlemen. Best wishes on your search.

Keep these ancestor stories coming!
