I hit a dead end with my great grandfather William H. Gleason. All I know according to census records is that he was born in Canada in 1848 and met my great grandmother Emma Treat in Laingsburg, Shiawassee County, Michigan during the late 1860's. They apparently had two children, Jennie and Fred. Fred is my grandfather and he was born about 1874 in Laingsburg, Shiawassee County, Michigan. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Private User Thanks for posting all the relevant census records for my grand father Frederick Treat Gleason and my great grandfather William H. Gleason. I am very familiar with the census records that you attached (I attached them to my tree on but I don't know how to attach them on How did you attach them? I would like to attach the 1930 Census out of San Francisco, California to my father Fred Treat Gleason -- he was living with his mother Gwendolyn Gleason (Carlson) and his brother, William Sage Gleason. If you can, please provide me with a link on how to attach census records and other public documents. Again, thanks a million for your generous time.

Private User -- Dear Mr. Prins:

It is my understanding that you specialize in Spanish Surnames.

Are you still a research volunteer? If you are, I was wondering if you could perhaps help me with a couple of dead ends. My 3rd great grandfather José Joaquín Aguiluz-Chavez (DOB: Abt 1800) from Spain and my 3rd great grandmother Manuela Calderon de La Barca (DOB: Abt 1800) from Spain. They are both buried in Comayagua, Honduras. It is my understanding that the Surname "Aguiluz" is most prominent in Latin America and that it probably derived from "Eguiluz" which is most prominent in Northern Spain and Southern France. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

My research involvement in that area has been focused on the project

I have also provided technical support on merging to various users in the Pros please merge discussion.

Volunteers who may help with research may respond here as Victar did already, and may again. Also see regarding curators who are active in specific areas.

Enrique Treat Gleason (Gleeson), Esq., my pleasure. It's a tough one. The 1890 census would have been key for you.

Btw, it would be helpful if you include links to the profiles in question when posting a request.

Yep, Aguiluz is likely from the Basque surname.Egiluz, from egi "hillside" and luze "long". Please feel free to join the Basque diaspora project!

It would also be helpful if you could include what sources you already have for the Aguiluz family. You can do so as I did for your Gleason family (in the about section), or upload them to the documents section.

Geni-users in the Netherlands, Europe, started a special place for what has been called: 'NAAM-oudsten' where especially users with ancestry in these regions can give their DUTCH-profiles an -as I hope temporarily- residence:


Every user with Dutch-Ancestry is WELCOME to 'store' their relatives there, so others in the Lower Countries of Europe can help them discovering fathers & mothers again.
