F is for Faith and Family. In our family we have a variety of beliefs or some that do not believe at all. One side is totally Catholic based in their religious beliefs. The other side is Protestant in their beliefs, yet even that has a range from Congregational, Methodists, Baptist Free-Will, Baptist- Southern, Baptist-Born again. The younger generations range from Atheist, Native American, Celtic Mother Earth and Wicca in their beliefs. Myself

I choose to believe in the existent of God everlasting support. I support each family member in their choice of belief system as best I can. If they need clothing, money for missionary work, healing energy, hugs, prayers it is provided within my ability to do so. Sometimes is is a donation for a fundraiser of a frame photograph, collection of food and clothes to be sent and starting a prayer line with my friends on Facebook.

It seems that my ancestors were almost as diversified as our more recent family members. I have to add Quakers,  Seven Day Advents and Mormons to the mix. My ancestors had to move to continue practicing their faith. Some cross the ocean to Colonial America, others crossed the wilderness America from coast to coast, north and south to Canada and Mexico.

It doesn't matter who we are or what time, Faith and Family were connected to how we lived#

Tea and Crumpets anyone?

A VISIT WITH QUEEN VICTORIA: 

The April 21 meeting of the Merrimack Historical Society will feature a Living History presentation by Sally Mummey. This is made possible through a grant from the NH Humanities Council.  In 1837, teen-aged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed, intelligent young woman, whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign.Using Queen Victoria's diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Sally Mummey performs this history in proper 19th Century clothing complete with Royal Orders. 

The program will begin at 7 PM at the Adult Community Center in Merrimack. It will be preceded by a brief business meeting at 6:30. Refreshments will be served.  It is open to the public at no cost.

This is what I found today while researching William Munroe. Ancestry.com hint for Mary Ball 2nd wife to William under the New England Marriage pages. Three wives? Okay I don't have a problem with that, but check out the born dates. I'm I miss reading them?

No either after or before. I can't remember.. When you look at the b before the last  date it looks like a birth but it is the marriage date. I was just a bit confused. I stepped away and when I came back. It all became clear. Birth  of a marriage not the person.

I would strongly recommend anyone with early New England roots to go visit. I felt a kinship with the struggles my ancestors went through. 

From living in this type of home while building a more permanent one, to a village and finally the foundation of a nation.

The wifi does work at the convention center. Just be patent with it. Don't try to rush it. Everyone you see says hello. It doesn't matter which conference you are going to.

+Fran Kitto I store in Evernote. I was thinking of trying Scrivener, but I like the 5x8 size, I don't know if Scrivener uses the larger notes.
