Great idea, +Randy Seaver. Yes, contact everyone you come across who is researching the same people. #genealogy #research #strategies
I think that we all have that question in our heads - and this one:  "If there are other genealogists who are researching this ancestor, why haven't they contacted me?"  But then I realize, "You know, I haven't tried to find ...

The tree on the left is the magnolia I have loved since childhood. It used to have a friend, the one right behind it. I wonder when it was lost. I can't imagine that Grampa would have pulled it out.  Jennifer Shoer aka  ScrappyGen Reconnecting Relatives, LL...

May 1965 in the Garden - Staging the Scene
Grampa loved a good scene and would arrange photos and movies to appear spontaneous. Here he appears to be whipping my aunt and uncle as they turn the dirt in the garden. The big clue to the staging is the grin on my uncle's face. I would love to see my aun...

May 1966 - Grandma's Smile
I love that Grandma posed with rollers in her hair. I am sure Grampa thought she was just as beautiful with them as without them. You can see the chair where Grampa takes care of his daylilies.  There appears to be laundry hanging on the line to the right t...

May 1966 - The Unforgotten Side Yard
The side yard would not be forgotten. The chimney had not yet been built and there was a door entering directly into the living room. You can just see the tail end of an old car whizzing by on the road. Of course, they whizz by quite a bit faster in 2015, a...

I can relate to this author. Stay at home Moms do get asked to do everything! And sure, we are usually eating bon bons, right?
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of genealogy information being "thrown" at you these days?  A sense of being totally overwhelmed by the "information highway"?   It seems like everyday there is some new technology, ...

What are relatives? They are who you make them. Siblings of the blood or the heart.
Man, life can really throw you some twists and turns, especially if you’re a genealogist with genetics thrown into the mix. You see, things don’t always go as planned, nor are they always as they a...

My passion is Reconnecting Relatives!
Introduction
Hi, it's Scrappy Gen. In the real world, I'm known as Jennifer Shoer.

After 22 plus year as a stay at home Mom, I have embarked on the ship mid life metamorphosis and am stretching my professional wings as a genealogist. In 1987 I graduated with a BA in Russian from the University of New Hampshire. For fourteen years I taught part time in our local Hebrew school. My formal genealogy education began with the Boston University genealogical research course in the spring of 2009 and I continue to broaden my professional knowledge by attending genealogy conferences and events.

I am located in southern New Hampshire and can easily access records in Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. If you have any questions or need assistance with your own research, please email me at jshoer@reconnectingrelatives.com

You can also find me in a few other places;
