I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from. I am proud to be a genealogist. I also have a criminal justice degree so the detective in me just has to search for all those treasure's out there.

She married Joshua Bliss who was married 29 Apr 1818 in Preston, Chenango, New York and died 17 Jun 1883 in Willet, Cortland, New York. They Had five Children: Mary Jane Bliss George Washington Bliss Rudolph Bliss William N Bliss Delos Bliss I imagine Eliza my 4th Great-Grandmother wearing the following fashions which were popular in the 1820's
I can see my Great Grandmother sitting in a rocker sewing a hole in a sock dressed like this.
Looking at the fashions of the era your ancestor lived helps to see how they may have looked.
