It was a very rewarding month for my family history research. Thanks to Doug Wallace I now have much more information on my two uncles, William Earl (Billy) and James Gilbert (Buddy) Varner, families in California and Nevada. The tree is growing larger. I have been in contact with my cousin Howard. It is good to finally "meet" the family there.
Now that I know the names and places to look for gathering the source documentation is not such a challenge. For the most part I've been able to find what I'm looking for on Ancestry, find-a-grave, the SSDI and California death records.
I am planning a visit to Teays Chapel and Clinton Memory Gardens cemetery tomorrow (Monday, Dec. 5, 2011. I have 8 photo requests on Find A Grave that I need to take care of. Hopefully the weather will clear off so that I can get some decent pictures.
