IMO, all peoples have a right to know their heritage. Their medical heritage, their lineage, their quirks. They need to know who they look like, where their traits come from. This is one of the many reasons I do #forensic #genealogy . #dna

In honor of Black History Month: Anita Florence Hemmings
In 1897 Anita Hemmings became the first black graduate of Vassar. But because she was passing for white, when her race was discovered she almost wasn’t allowed to graduate.

Oregon Burial Site Guide available for cost of shipping. It’s a wonderful book. If you would like to have it for your society, just follow the instructions below. #genealogy #oregon  
 
Press release - Oregon Burial Site Guide We are losing our warehouse space the end of July. So the boss said to offer the Oregon Burial Site Guide, Compiled by Dean Byrd, Stanley Clarke, & Janice M. Healy free. We will send a hard back copy to everyone for the cost of shipping and handling. Prepaid $20 post marked not later than 1 July 2015. Those of you with Non-profit status please add your tax ID number. Any questions contact me. This book sold for $125 each. This book is about where the cemeteries of Oregon are located. Not lists of who is buried in them. Those are only listed for the small sites on private property with 12 or less burials. The book is 8.5" X 11" X 2" 1,200 plus pages and weighs in at about 8 lbs in the shipping carton. Fully alphabetical by county and site, each county is indexed. Black and White photos for a general idea of what monuments are in each county, with a state wide index in the back. This is a must for those researching Oregon using death certificates. We tried to pick up all the ‘also known as’ names to the sites. There are about 2500 burial sites in the 36 counties of Oregon. This material is updated and corrected, not like the material from the old ODOT book that has been put up on the web. So no this is not on the web. Make checks out to: Stoney Way LLC PO Box 5414 Aloha, OR 97006-0414. Questions to: Janice M Healy Secretary/Treasurer Stoney Way LLC Mailto:jmhealy1@comcast.net

If you or your organization have an interest in Oregon cemeteries this might be a good book for you or your organization to have on the shelf.

We live in amazing times! I have tried to gain a firm understanding of DNA and how it relates to our history. Today I learn I can recreate my mother's DNA with a little help from other DNA kits. Very cool!
