Sifting through my father’s papers

Well, it’s taken me a little more than one year, but I’ve completed an initial sorting and organization of my father’s genealogy files.  He had quite diligently collected several bankers boxes of important information about our ancestors, narrative history, reference information about the places they called home and correspondence galore.

My initial objective for the organization was to sort through all the information he had about William Louis Boulden.  Our direct Boulden line seems to begin with his birth in 1792.  Who were his parents.  We know the Bouldens settled in Virginia in the 1600’s.  We can trace the first four generations thanks to the scholarship of Katherine Harbury.

The gap between those first four generations and William Louis Boulden can’t be more than one or two generations.  Where should one begin?

I was also quite surprised by the wealth of information about other Boulden descendants, including Joseph Louis Boulden, Annetta Cunha and many others.  I’ll begin posting that information for others to see while I attempt to solve the mystery of William Louis Boulden’s parents.

Do you have any information that could help?  Are you looking for information about your Boulden ancestors?  Please reach out; I would love to hear from you.
