On the search . . . .

For many years now I've been searching my past in an endeavor to unfold the tales of my family. I've traveled (via the internet) to England, Denmark, Norway, Ohio, Nebraska, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. I've spent time personally visiting historic Boston and their wonderful cemeteries and, or course, visited my ancestors right here in California. My ancestors have touched the world in many places... and I hope to enjoy some of their experiences. I want you to join me as I travel through my past... and uncover their stories..

Surgeon's Certificate ~ Sheridan Dean

I find this diagram posted here very interesting. The fact that we even have a copy of it I think is amazing. My Booth family cousin found it online and I haven't seen one like it before.  

I'm having a difficult time reading it and determining why this surgeons certificate was needed. 

One thing I do know is that Sheridan Dean, the subject of this Surgeon's Certificate, is my 2nd great grandfather.  

Warm regards, 



  1. That is pretty cool. The writing so small I can't help you figure out why it's needed. But it's a fascinating find.

  2. Hi Devon - I think it's a fascinating find too. I can't find another one like it on the web to compare the writing with but I'll keep searching. :)
