Digging for Dusenburys

Scholefield Family Tree

Actually, the digging wasn’t too stressful. They sat right up and waived their hands frantically so I’d see them!

I have officially hit the jackpot during this “survey previous research” stage as I check works that have been compiled by others. The following places are those places that I search to determine if previous research has been completed:

The first is World Connect. People can post their GEDCOMs and they become searchable for free. I won’t restate all that I found there, but we’ll leave it at the fact that this tree traces the Dusenburys back several generations.

Another is just a general Google search. Using keywords ‘”Henry Dusenbury” Ogden’ leads me to additional information about the Ogden line at this site. Google also wanted me to correct the name so that it would read Dusenberry.

And, of course, FamilySearch.org has quite a bit of information that has been submitted about these older families.

The best thing about being able to get back this far is that usually someone else has “done the work.” (Though keep in mind that their work may be riddled with errors — but it is a good place to start.)
