1925 Wiscasset, Maine Heading to The Arctic
I found this photo of The Peary, the expedition ship leaving Wiscasset Harbor on it's way to The Arctic with MacMillan and Byrd. Capt. George F. Steele (my grand uncle) was the captain of The Peary, and you can see The Bowdoin's banner on the left. There is...

There are alternatives!
 
Does anyone use Evernote as a word processing program? I added it to my list because you can include a .wav file. If you do, I'd like to know in what instances.
You don't have to use dole out a lot of money any more for a good word processing program. Check out these alternatives to Microsoft Word.

A Wedding Anniversary
So when you post on one family's blog, you must post on the other family's blog. An earlier post on The MacDonald Family blog highlighted photos from my parent's wedding day, 68 years ago. But they were photos of the Steele Family. Well, I guess it was the ...

Finally starting my Shanks Family genealogy blog.

All evidence points to this small town (village?), Luokė in Lithuania. The strongest evidence I have are WW One and WW Two draft registration cards, completed when Grampy Martin registered for those drafts as a young man. I went up on Google Maps and grabbe...
