Genealogy has become a hobby for me over the last 10 years. For me, it's like a puzzle, I love fitting the pieces together. But over the years, I've researched a lot that does not pertain to our family lines. Some for extended family, some for close friends, and some because I was trying to rule out lines to figure out where our line went exactly. I do not want these notes on my Heather's Genealogy Notes blog - because they are not our lines. But I do like to share all of my research, in case it benefits others. That is what this blog is for - research I have done that does not apply to our own family lines, but may be helpful for someone else.

Mervin E. Aikey 1928-

My mom brought me the obit for Charles H. Aikey (1949-2013) and asked how he was related. She worked with him at Chef's and remembered that he was related to us.  This post is to answer her question. (Note, Charles Aikey married Sandra I. Oberdorf - those Aikey's and Oberdorfs married each other A LOT!)  The answer is : Lewis, William, Harry, Hugh, Mervin, Charles.  We are related to Lewis Aikey through his sons Lewis & Robert (yes, we are related to both of them..  both are brothers to William), so the connection is distant.
