A Little Bit On Genealogy

Genealogists study family trees and ancestry to establish an accurate family history for a particular family. Most people considered to be "genealogists" are people from the general public who are interested in their ancestors, family history and origins. After speaking with a reference librarian, I found that most genealogists who visit the Newberry are in fact regular people out to solve the mysteries of their ancestry.

I am both a genealogist and the 5th cousin 6x removed of Walter Loomis Newberry. We are related through my mother's family, the Hoisingtons that also go back to early Connecticut.
