Genealogy

If your walking stick purchase has a name and/or location engraved on the handle or collar, it may be possible to trace. Some websites to search include:
www.ancestry.com (paid subscription, 14-day free trial)
www.genealogy.com
www.rootsweb.com. Rootsweb is searchable without a paid subscription.

Another recommended site, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints site, which is free, at:
www.familysearch.org.

Another excellent site which offers more than 200,000 links to genealogy sites most of which are free, is:
www.cyndislist.com

County historical societies, local libraries and museums are other avenues worthy of genealogical pursuit.

There are many websites devoted to genealogy searches.  Let me know your favorites.
