Query: Chamberlain & Hellrigle - Rcvd: Feb 2020
In 1820, four Chamberlain brothers left New England to work along the Gatineau R., Canada. Josiah and John stayed. Leonard vanished. Thomas (1799-1868) settled in Dayton, married Catherine Hellrigle (or Helligler). Thomas and Catherine's children were: Robert (aka Rufus), Andrew, Thomas A., Noble, Mary, Jacob and Parker. (Robert, Andrew and Noble served in the Civil War). Many grandchildren. Thomas Sr. and Catherine are buried at Woodland Cemetery.
There are 56+ Josiah and John descendants, affectionately calling ourselves "Chamberlain Descendants...Chasing History." We need to find a Thomas descendant to help us solve a history mystery -- finding proof of who the parents were of those four brothers. Family Bible notations and cemetery records lead us to Merrimack, New Hampshire.
Do you have Chamberlain/Chamberlin, Hellrigle or Kritzer on your family tree? Please contact Laurel (1-604-980-7429) or firstname.lastname@example.org

Query: EMMONS - Ebenezer and John - Rcvd: 27 Aug 2019
1820 census records for German Township, Montgomery County show Ebenezer Emmons and family. Ebenezer was born in NJ and returned to Monmouth County NJ in 1821. He served in the War of 1812, however, it does not appear he had bounty land when he resided in German Township with other NJ families. There is potential that he and his family accompanied NJ REV WAR soldier John Emmons, perhaps his father, and returned to NJ in 1821 when John Emmons died.
If you can please share any information and detail regarding relationships between these former NJ residents it might help us resolve whether Ebenezer was a son of Rev War John Emmons.

Query: Seeking Copy Photo Advise - Rcvd: 18 Apr 2019
I am copying a good deal of information on paper by photocopying, using a camera and copy stand.
I would like to learn the best method(s) for lighting the material which is laying flat on the copy stand. Currently, I am relying on light from a northern window, but would like supplemental lighting for gray days and evenings. I have some small spots with 5,000K bulbs that came with a cheap photo/light tent. They do not put out enough light and brighter lights would require diffusers. Are LEDs better than incandescent bulbs?
