A great read to start off my morning on a happy note! Want a feel good read? Read this!
During my lifetime, I have worked in a shoe shop, in various residential, nursing and ‘mental health’ facilities, taken care of people in their own homes (for a variety of reasons), worked in annuities, as a research chemist and heaven knows what else. I am probably one of a rare breed who can honestly say that [...]

Thanks Lewis, for living to an elderly age. Not that you didn't accomplish a whole lot in your life, but I appreciate that you lived long enough to be enumerated on the 1840 census. You provided me with an ancestor that utilized the "Revolutionary War Pension" and exact "age" column.

Fascinating post - I learned a lot!

I wish there was a place to comment so I could tell her that I've included it in my  NoteWorthy Reads post for this week: http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/2015/04/noteworthy-reads-9.html. But maybe she'll see this or someone who knows her will see it and tell her how much I enjoyed it.
After the Civil War, everything changed. The American landscape was flush with important social issues. It was a new age, and people were realizing the possibilities. Both Helen and William came fr...

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
