Something to think about...#familyhistory #genealogy
The New York Times reported on 24 June 2015 that the PBS genealogy broadcast “Finding Your Roots” will suspend the airing of their third season until staffing changes are made. Why the suspension? There are allegations Ben Affleck pressured producers to withhold details of his slave owning ancestors in his October broadcast on the show last …

Story
Introduction
Hi! I'm a mid-life  woman with a high stress professional job that I sometimes love; I'm a bookworm who doesn't have enough time to read; I lean left politically; I'm a liberal Christian (yep, we exist), and an insomniac. My newest passion is family history. I love researching my ancestors and finding out their stories; I'm not only collecting names. I've also started a blog to keep my family informed of my research, help me analyze my research,  make new friends, and possibly find new cousins. ; ) Climbing My Family Tree - http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/.  Stop in and say hi! And I'm on Twitter at https://twitter.com/JoAllisonHenn
