When the Kelly triplets were just 4 days old, their mother died from complications of the birth. Almost three years later, their father was shot. The triplets and their older sister were divided up among living relatives. The triplets have reunited 60 years later and are trying to discover their family history.

Do you have a tradition of going to your grandparents’ home for Sunday dinner? Wayne Amos, who has fond memories of eating at his grandparents' house each Sunday, says “the house” (as it became known in the family) represents much more to him.

Some name their cars after heroes, pets, or celebrities and then take “ol’ Jezabel” around the country. Did you name your first car? How did you pick the car’s name? Do you remember the name of the car you first toured the country in?

Used Google back in my college days. Happy to see the techniques I learned used for family history as well. It cleared up a few of the countless mysteries surrounding my lineage!

Though quilting was in her DNA, when Roberta Farmer was growing up, tied-top quilts were made not for art, but out of necessity. Farmer was raised in a small town with gravel roads—she didn’t see a "hardtop" road until she was a senior in high school. When she was nearly 40, she turned to the craft and art of quilting as a hobby and is now an award-winning quilter with around 100 handmade quilts under her belt. What hobby do you share with your ancestors?
