About

Welcome to the Mr. Gen Wish List blog!

My name is Tina Lyons. I live in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have been working on my own genealogy since the spring of 2008. When I found brick walls in my own family tree, I turned my attention to my husband's genealogy and was happy to find relatives that I liked and that liked me back (even if they were dead). This blog will be a place to share my research and connect with others researching the same lines.

My husband's family tree has its roots in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. His ancestors came to Toledo from many of the northern counties in Ohio. His family also has been found in Montgomery County and Butler County, Ohio. Beyond Ohio, his ancestors came from Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany. You can see more details about his ancestors on the Surname tab above.

The goal of this new blog is to write one post each week about one of the family groups in his family tree. Then I will add documents and other information about that family over the course of the week. So far I have written about two of his families. The first was the family of Lewis ZIRGER and Regina DANNEMILLER. I included the passenger list for the family in another post. The second family was George HAUSMANN and Victoria ZIRGER and I also added their death certificates.

If you find a connection, place email me at genwishlist@gmail.com. I look forward to working together to further the family lines.

My hobby has turned into a profession. You can learn more about the genealogy services and lectures that I offer on my website (http://www.genwishlist.com).
