My Grandfathers family were strict Northerners and my Grandmothers family all came from the south. My mother never met my Grandfathers family because she was a "Southerner" The hate is still around

[TGP] I'm thinking about doing a free "Bring Your Own Questions" webinar on marketing, business development and social media as relates to genealogy professionals of course. Would anybody be interested in that? The concept would be, you ask the questions and I'll answer them.

So instead of contacting people ahead of time and using them as examples in a formal webinar, this would be focused on addressing all the questions you have on the spot. Let me know if there's any interest in this

I lived in Savannah for a few years and the homes there are gorgeous. So much rich history to be found there while walking around downtown along the river.

They used DNA testing in this story to check whether one of the orphans was related to a potential family. Don't watch without a hanky!
