Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about Diana’s 52 ancestors post with the prompt “out of place.” She chose to write about her maternal grandfather, Edward Raymond Kelsey. After high school and a few years working at the railroad, he decided to become a hobo. This was about 1905. He stayed in hobo camps along the railroad lines and traveled throughout the northwest on the trains. Join us as we study the family stories, photos, and historical context of our ancestor, Edd Kelsey, and his time as a hobo.

What an interesting story!! Thanks so much for sharing. I have been trying to write stories about my ancestors based on what I learned from my research and this was a great model.
Nicole & Diana,
I’m enjoying the stories you tell about your 52 ancestors. They remind me of stories I need to write about my ancestors. I appreciate how timely all your podcast are to what I need. I listen to them over and over again.
In my family we have a tradition of a stowaway that was in America and went back to England. I haven’t been able to find any records on stowaways. It would be appreciated if you could podcast about stowaways. If not that’s ok, I’ll continue to look.
Thanks for all you do. You two keep me moving forward.
