I'm back! And here is my latest edition of Noteworthy Reads for interesting stories, articles, tips, tools, and resources. #genealogy   #Familyhistory  
For me, Noteworthy Reads are articles, websites, or blog posts I found recently which are fascinating, interesting and/or helpful, and occasionally “wacky” or “wonderful” will likely sneak in as well. When I have the time I’l...

Vertical Pedigree Charts for my paternal grandparents - 1 each -  (to the extent I know now)
While I was visiting family this summer, I realized that I had never posted my direct line ancestor charts for the paternal side of my family (to the extent I've found them). I thought I had for my maternal side but when  I l...

Too cute! If you live in Virginia and are wanting a kitten, read this. If you just like cute kittens, read this.
Hey y'all, I'm Ruth. Yes, I'm a girl. Yes, I'm an orange tabby. Yes, I'm unusual. Now we've got that out of the way, lemme tell you, we've got an unusual life here. It all started when we were born...

Vertical Pedigree Charts for my maternal grandfather Charles Weldon Snyder (1910-1984) and for my maternal grandmother Mabel LeRe Erwin (1910-1990)
As I explained yesterday, I thought I had previously posted the direct line ancestor charts for my maternal side, to the extent I've found them thus far, but when  I looked for them, I only found one side posted and I'd screw...

Image from Pixabay.com Now I'm having genealogical nightmares. No, not brick walls. Nightmares. Since they were obviously genealogical nightmares, I thought I'd share.  I got virtually no sleep last night (Thursday night) b...

I have inadvertently named living people. But I just edit them out once I know. It's all I can do. (Last one was born in 1912 & I guess I just assumed she'd died. Oops.)

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
