Thank you all for coming to the Webinar presentation of Genealogy Research Stories on Friday January 4th! The link to the recording of the webinar is at the bottom of the post, for those of you who would like to review or share the presentation. I will also add the recording to the Recorded Webinars page of the Genealogy Research Guide. I hope you had a great time hearing some neat stories about my research. I just wanted to quickly provide you with some citations for my research materials for the stories, in case any of you would like to see any of the original materials.

Clara’s death record was found by searching the 1916 death records under her last name “Madden”. (Remember, New Jersey Death Certificates from 1904-1948 are organized in alphabetical order by last name within the calendar year.)
Here’s a Find a Grave page for Alice Randall, her husband Charles, and Emma Rayner, who died in 1929. Ada Crist may be Alice Randall’s aunt and Emma’s sister, as one of Clara’s daughters was named Ada.
