Tracking My Ancestor

I couldn’t sleep the other night so like most genealogist would do I logged onto ancestry.com and did some research. I decided to look through Birmingham, AL city directories to see if I could locate my Great Great Grandmother Minnie Whiteside and her son Charlie Beck who’ve I lost track of after the 1910 U.S. Federal Census. After looking at several directories I found a Minnie Whiteside and a Charles Beck living in the same place in both 1912 and in 1913. I immediately did a happy dance while laying in my bed (don’t ask me how but I did). I am planning on taking another research trip to Youngstown, OH  to see what new discoveries I can find on Minnie (she moved there from Birmingham around 1917 with my grandma and great grandma) and her daughter, my Great Grandmother Georgianna. I’ll be sure to post any pictures I take.
