Here is the timeline that I made for the 2010 GeneaBlogger Games and the Carnival of Genealogy. I chose to plot out the life of my great grandmother Alice Susan HILLIS and interweaved her life with that of her siblings and children. I am missing records from her later years as censuses are not available yet. I need to go through city directories more and find out more about the family. It is interesting to see how both families moved around the Cincinnati Tri-State area. I will be writing more articles about Alice for the COG and linking them to this timeline. Look for those next week.
