Nicknames are one of the most common genealogy research speed bumps that researchers come across.
I am a namesake for my mother’s paternal aunt, Carrie Jamison. She was the wife of my Grandfather’s half-brother. She lived in West Virginia where my Grandfather’s family lived in a rural mountain community and I only had a few opportunities to meet her as a young child. She passed away at the age of 76.

We all leave a legacy behind. What will your legacy be?
