Our Genealogical Helper for Ostrea Lake ...
We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:
- That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
- That it also helps us to understand the community which surrounded our ancestors and that was part of their daily lives.
By learning about Ostrea Lake (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us insight while doing our genealogical research.
As we organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Ostrea Lake. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.
It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.
