My name is Rex Bertram.  I am a professional genealogist, who has been researching professionally for over 10 years.  I began researching my own ancestors about 15 years ago.

I live in Redkey, IN; about 50 miles away from the world’s second largest genealogy library, in Fort Wayne, IN.

    I have a picture of “Mr. & Mrs. Sherburn” found in my grandmother’s box of old pictures in Portland, Indiana. If anyone is interested in this picture, I’d be happy to give it to you.

      You might consider giving it to the Jay County Historical/Genealogical Society in Portland.

    Rex, Haven’t seen any posts or other correspondence from you in a long while. Is everything OK?

      Hello Mike. I keep thinking; on a regular basis; that I really need to post in my blog. Just haven’t gotten to it. All is very well with me. I have had steady (but not overwhelming) genealogy business coming in; and have been spending at least 2 full days a week at the library. I will try to post something worth reading in the blog soon.

    Hi Rex, just read your information on search deeds. Maybe I will join one of your group sessions to just listen. I have been trying to find my great, great grandfather who owned a general store in De Soto/Caddo Parish, LA. I have a succession document on him, and now maybe I can search a deed for that particular store. Haven’t had much luck with him, but I’m not giving up.

      Hi Jo Ann. You are welcome to join any of my future sessions; and are welcome just to sit back and listen if that is what you prefer. Best of luck in your search.
