Genealogy is Everywhere, and often Right Under our Noses

After hiking along the Passaic River, my dog and I took a break on the Stanley Avenue bridge. Not a place that I would expect to find some genealogical material, but the plaque from when the bridge was built in 1929 offered several names, including the engineer and contractor.

So, I did what any genealogist would do. I took several photos, transcribed the names and posted it on my web site.

There are probably similar relics around your town, and you are welcome to take photos and submit them to me to be included in the wiki area of Genealogy Today. The names will get indexed by our search engine and shared with any Surname Tracker followers that match.

Let's see how many local items we can get documented together!
