The website that I began my research on was FindMyPast.Com. This website allows you to enter in the names and approximate birth dates of family members (or anyone you may be curious about for that matter). It then pulls up any historical archives it can find on said person and allows you to view them. I started my research by looking for every known relative on my mom’s side of the family. I was able to do this by using the names and information I obtained from my interview with her. I was first able to find a 1910 US Census on the household of my great-great- grandparents on her mother’s side. This census told me that Henry was born in 1985 and Effie was born in 1987. This confirmed my the information learned in my mom’s interview. I continued to search for my relatives on her side but wasn’t able to find anything except for a death index for my Grandfather, Jerry Anthony Turpin. This told me that he was born in 1936 and died in 1970.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
