Mystery Monday – Closely related to Madness Monday only these missing ancestors might not cause madness! Mystery Monday is where you can post about mystery ancestors or mystery records – anything in your genealogy and family history research which is currently unsolved. This is a great way to get your fellow genealogy bloggers to lend their eyes to what you’ve found so far and possibly help solve the mystery.
When one begins to blog on family genealogy, there are suggestions for daily blogging to keep one from getting too overwhelmed with where to go/write, etc. One of Monday's suggestions is "mystery". Well, here's one of mine.
My paternal great-great grandmother is Marie Ursula Marxer, born in Liechtenstein in 1863. My husband's first cousin is married to a Marxer. She can trace the Marxer's back to the 1550's to Alsace, France. I can follow a line back to 1640's but still stay in Liechtenstein. The only common factor we think is that we both can trace relatives to Montana! We figured we must be related but can not find a connection. Cousin Kathy is now retired and can spend more time researching so she's taking this line on. "I'll report, you decide."
