Interesting Family Update

After my mother died last November I needed to go through a lot of her paperwork.  Some of what I found was old letters.  One was from a friend of my parents.  He wrote that his wife left him and took their daughter with her.  He want my mother to contact his daughter.  The daughter was my father’s god daughter.

I have no idea if my mother ever did, I was kept in the dark about a lot that happened in the family.  Back in December I did some searching online, Facebook and other social media.

Turned out I got a hit.  It took awhile but she got back to me.  Her information matched up but there was a lot new.  I found out about my father’s friends including a third friend beside her father.

I also learned my father was hit by a truck and broke both of his legs.  That was the one year he only visited her once.  He usually visited more.

I have no idea what happened between my parents but he never visited.  Maybe someday I’ll find out more.

Where do I start DNA

There is a lot of information out there on using DNA for genealogy.  Sometimes I think there may be too much.

There are multiple blogs, books, and videos that explain what to do and what to looks for in your research.  But I have not seen much on what to do from the beginning and good steps to follow after that.  I think that most of the experts were brought up in the infancy of DNA and each stumbled through until they found what works.  There is good and bad to that.  Good that they were able to use their skills find a way to use DNA.  Bad, because not all had the same level of skill and weren’t able to translate those skills to a chart that others could use.

Or somewhere out there is exactly what I’m looking for but I can’t find it amongst the thousand of pieces or information available.

A simple chat showing an order on how to start researching would be nice. Start with where to read up on the legalities of DNA testing.  After that:

  1. get tested
  2. get local copy of DNA
  3. upload to other sites. list of sites that are free
  4. here is where I get lost.

When do you try triangulation?  What do you need?  What is the importance of DNA painter?  How do you choose matches to contact?  Is it worth contacting a 5th cousin or higher?  What information should I save for from each contact?

Each new piece of information seems to go over my head more and more.

Lucinda Alice Noice (born McLaughlin)

My great great grandmother Lucinda was born In Fairfield, Ohio on October 14, 1857. .

In 1860 she was 2 years old living with her parents in Pleasant Township in Ohio. Ten years later she was going by Alice. Still living in Ohio, now with her brother Cassius (age 9) and sister Nancy (age 8) added to her family.

She was single and listed as a domestic in the 1880 Census.

Two years later she was married. On November 2, 1882 she married George Noise. Noise is sometimes written Noice.

Lucinda was married to George for 18 years in 1900. They lived at 151 West Mill, Lancaster Ward 1, Fairfield, Ohio. They had eight children aged one to sixteen living with them.

They were: Carrie A Noise 16, Perry C Noise 15, Elmer E Noise 18, Franklin Noise 11, Della Noise 9, Lewis Noise 8, William Noise 6, and Flo Noise 1.

The farming family of five in 1910 were living at Refuge Road in Walnut, Ohio.  Lewis, William, and Flo were still young enough to need to stay with their family.  Lewis 18 and William 16 were full time home farmers.

Flo North, her children Max C North 1, Charles G North 3 months, were living with Alice and George in 1930.  Still on the farm in Fairfield County, Ohio.  I don’t see a father for Flo’s children but it was 1920 and he was probably in Europe for WWI.  In the following census it appears he came back for a little while.

George and Alice were living on a farm in 1930 at 16 Pleasantville Rd in Pleasant, Fairfield, Ohio. Living with them was their youngest Flo North now 32 and her four children. Max C North 11, Charles G North 10, Betty J North 8, and Armoletta North 6 grew up on their grandparents’ farm.

Now in their early 80s 1940 found George and Alice living at 405 Agara Avenue, still in Lancaster, Fairfield, Ohio.

Alice Noice died February 25, 1942. She was buried three days later at section g3 in Forest Rose Cemetery in Lancaster, Ohio. George joined her two years later.
