I'd just like to add to this thread that there is a long-time FARNSWORTH researcher. She participated on the Lists and Boards for many yrs. while she lived in RI. She moved to another state, and I don't know if she still participates now.
Also, there is a great more information at www.familysearch.org
now. And, there is more information on-line. Sometimes I have luck searching for just the name, especially if it is an uncommon name. I just searched for "Alonzo Farmsworth" (in quotes) and find his gravestone:http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=80...
And, there seems to have been another man with the name, so I changed the search-term to "Alonzo Farnsworth, Maine" and found a discussion on the FARNSWORTH Message Board at www.genforum.com
(There is good information at that web site, and has been for many yrs.)http://genforum.genealogy.com/farnsworth/messages/1062.html
I do not have this surname on my family-tree * .. I was just offering it as an FYI.
Betty (near Lowell, MA)
(on Lists and Boards for 12 yrs.; now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)
* I have been researching my KIDDER ancestors for 20+ yrs., and around 1800 they started being along the border between St. Stephen, NB, and Calais, ME. I research all their spouses, so I also research WILKINS. Some of the spouses are very much brick-walls.
P.S. The long-time FARNSWORTH researcher is found in many postings. I just searched her name, and was reminded that she also spent many yrs. transcribing genealogy and history books - and putting them on-line.http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GenMassachuset...
