Mahaffie House Entry In Wikipedia

My "Mahaffie" Google Alert turned up a new entry on the Mahaffie House in the Wikipedia on-line encyclopedia this morning. I had to have a look, and -- since Wikipedia is an open-source, anyone can edit it, collaborative space -- I had to add a few things.

Along with some text, I added a link to the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site and a link to a Google Maps aerial image.

The Mahaffie House was started by my great-great-grandfather (there may be another "great" in there), so I take an on-going interest.

Part of what I've been doing with this blog has been tracking the "Mahaffie-ness" of that area and Mahaffie family history in that area.

More connections!

I’m also a history/genealogy buff and find old pictures and facts about family history to be fascinating. Since my family has lived in one location (Southern Delaware or Eastern Maryland taking into account changes in state boundaries) for the past 200+ years I assumed finding records would be a snap. Wrong, I’ve struggled to find linking documentation of family members back past the 1870’s for the past several years. Frustrating work, but always fun. Congratulations on finding this new and exciting information about your Family’s history.
