Waiting

I am currently waiting on source material to arrive in the mail. Hopefully some of these copies will open up new avenues of research on various family lines. The first big package which will hopefully arrive any day now is a copy of my great-grandfather Plutarco Campuzano's alien case file. I ordered this last month from Citizenship and Immigration Services. Since I replied immediately and used the tracking number provided I am hoping it will get here this week. The USCIS website does warn that while requests usually mail out within 3-4 weeks, it can take up to 90 days.

After finding the will of Michael Braun and marriage record for Christian Brown and Eva Welch in the records of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church via the Lebanon County Historical Society, I wrote directly to the church to see if they had other records on the Braun family in their archives. The church archivist is working on my request, so I'm interested to see the results.

The Muskingum County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society is sending me pages from the Biographical History of Muskingum County on my Davis, Conner and Pollack ancestors before the moved to Guernsey County, Ohio between 1812-1820. I'm expecting the package to arrive this week as well.

I will have updates on the results, hopefully soon.
