Today’s post subject has been a long time in coming, and it is finally here. A real historical document from the town of Stockton with real genealogical information provided by people who actually knew this lady while she was alive.
Of course it is still subject to error – because to err is human.
Just like most of the documents I get excited about discovering – it raises more questions then it answers.
Today I have yet another little treasure contributed by our friend Randy Blood.
Today I am presenting another wonderful treasure shared by Randy Blood as a result of his resent visit to New York State. A photograph of Charles & Nettie Dodge.
Today’s post will cover the cemetery card from Stockton, NY showing the plot information for Eli and Kate Moulton. I am grateful to Randy Blood for sharing all the wonderful items he photographed during his recent visit.
Today’s post has no new information to add to my research project, but it is always nice to have our own copy of items. While visiting in New York, Randy Blood stopped by the Stockton cemetery and snapped this nice photo.
Our friend Randy Blood shared some wonderful photos of the family records contained in a bible story book he recently found while visiting with relatives in New York State. What a treasure!

My friend, Randy Blood, has been visiting in New York State and collecting documents for this Kanistanaux family. My next two documents are cemetery cards provided by the local historian (name unknown, age 91).
Today I will introduce a new family member.
In June I hired a researcher using the genealogyfreelancers.com service to retrieve records for me. They are now starting to dribble in. So, today I will take a break from the Paris Expo series to post the first of my new records.
Today I am posting the Death Register entry for Isaac Henry Kanistanaux.
I am so excited to share the following image with my readers.
I have located and acquired images of U-ta-wa-un and his “wife” while exhibiting at the Paris Universal Exposition in 1867. The image originally appeared in an 1867 French newspaper.
Ne-Do-Ba acquired the image through Le Hinchet Books & Prints of France. I would like to thank them for their very prompt service and for making this historically important print available.

I recently found a single sentence in a book (written in French) which could be of great interest to the Kanistanaux project. The topic is, of all things, the 1867 Universal Exposition in Paris, France.
Guess who was there? Yep, it’s him He’s baaaack —
