No "family reunions" for me unless you want to see the police, national guard, ATF and other groups breaking up the fighting. Not sorry about it either as it seems to run in the family history. Best if some things are left taboo.

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.

“I’ve spent so much time over the years searching through Dutch genealogy records, it feels good to be able to contribute by helping to put more Dutch records online!” - Nancy Van Kesteren Helis of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Nancy was a first time indexer who decided to help others the way she had been helped by indexing records she frequently searches. Let's give a HUGE THANK YOU to all our indexers who worked hard to save #theworldsrecords ! http://bit.ly/2a1iVai

It's more fun when you do indexing with a friend! Makes me wish I had friends instead of people who are trying to screw up my family history.

A photographer adorned his family home with over 80 personal photos from the 70 years it was in his extended family's possession before it is demolished for a new development. Do you have a place that is historical to your family? How would you say goodbye to it?
Artist Gary Sweeney has adorned his family's home with large-scale memories (ahead of its March demolition).

During Black History Month, The Times published dozens of never-before-seen photographs of various people, inviting readers to submit their own unpublished images of black history. Now they are inviting students to answer how much they know about their own family history by responding to the following questions on an interactive site:
— What do you know about your family’s history? How did you learn it?
— Do you have a parent, grandparent, or relative who likes to tell stories about the past?
— Do you have any old family photos? Do they reveal anything interesting or surprising about your family?
— Describe one particular photo that says something about your family’s history.
Do you have any old family photos? Do they reveal anything interesting or surprising about your family?

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!

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. 
Wayne Amos’ grandparents’ house was always the gathering place for Sunday dinner — his grandmother, Hilda Labbe Voorhies made an unforgettable chicken fricassee — and family get-togethers, he said, but
