A couple of days back I opened my e-mail as I do every morning and found 5 e-mails containing obituary/death notices that had been published in the Baltimore Sun, relating to people in my database.  I was very surprised.

 

The e-mails were sent by Greg Burton,  Well I e-mailed Greg back thanking him for sending me the information.  I was also curious as to Greg's possible connection to anyone in my database, so I asked him in the e-mail how he was connected.

His response is quite amazing and here it is in his own words;

You are welcome,  I am not connected.  I have a TNG site also, and am a Maryland researcher.  I searched for TNG sites and then checked to see if there were Maryland people.  I have access to the Baltimore Sun via the Baltimore County Library and other Maryland records.

Many people have helped me build my family tree, providing records for other researchers just returns the favor. Truly a random act of generosity!

Hi Darrin,
Thanks for the comment on my web site. Would you be willing to help fill in some of the missing information about your grandfather and your family line? For example could you provide your grandmother's full name, date of birth and where she was born. Would you know the names and dates of birth for all of your grandparents children?

Here's my direct e-mail contact address

My Great Grandfather was named Dr. George Benjamin Gittens who was born in the 19th century and he was a prominent dentist in the Carribean. Does anyone know about his parents and where he was born? Trinidad or Barbados? Photos are appreciated.

Hi Michele,

I only have one person with the name "George Benjamin Gittens" in my database. He was baptised 29 May 1887 in Barbados. Seems he had one brother Charles Augustus Gittens, baptised 27 Jul 1882.

Their parents were John Henry Gittens and Rebecca Ann Cummins who married 29 May 1882 in Saint Andrews, Barbados.

I don't have any further information on the family.

Hello Nick,

Here is a link to an ancestor chart for Olto Marshall which shows three generations of ancestors.

http://gittens.info/pedigree.php?personID=I3192&tree=1

If you click on any name in the chart it will display any information that I have accumulated on the family.

Although I show Olto Marshall as the name, I believe it is the person you are looking for, Otto Marshal.

Ho
