I have often wished for several of your suggestions in my database program. Duration of an event would certainly be helpful, as would the ability to see everyone connected to a specific event.
The Event is one of the most undervalued entities in a family-history (or any history) collection. Excessive emphasis is usually placed on the Person entity, and virtually none at all on the Place entity. Read how the Event i...

I didn't blog very much in 2011 but due to Olive Tree Genealogy's blogging prompt for today, I'm beginning 2012 with a blog - Sharing Memories 2012 - My First Memory. http://dmbr622.wordpress.com/2012/01/01/sharing-memories-2012-my-first-memory/

It's been awhile [please note understatement] since I've done a post to my 'Notes From the Journey' blog. Kay and I were talking yesterday about a talk I gave on 'The Power of Words.' I decided to add it to my blog: http://travelersjournal.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/the-power-of-words/

I did the Sunday morning version of Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun because I was already having genealogy fun on Saturday researching family in South Carolina. You can see my blog with both pie and bar charts at http://goo.gl/EQ076.

None of my currently known direct line has Kentucky roots; however, some of my earliest ancestors' siblings headed west just after we became a nation or the beginning of the 19th century and either landed in or spent time in Kentucky - and they were from divergent lines (Willis, Keithley, Blakeney, Collins, Foster/Snell and Little). So far, I've not done much research in Kentucky other than record digitally available census, land or probate information but I suspect research on the Willis and Keithley Kentucky roots would net clues to identify as yet unknown progenitors. Thanks for inviting me.

Since most of my circles on Google+ are of the genealogy type, I thought I would post a link to the blog I did today, which illustrates the importance of analyzing the data you assemble rather than just plugging in names on the family tree - "Why Analyze Data?" http://dmbr622.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/why-analyze-data/

Fun! I'm so glad for central air. One of the things I remember was our trip to Six Flags or Galveston (not sure if that was the same trip or not) in the Renault Dauphine and we borrowed Grandpa's cooler for the car. I thought the our 'baby car' was going to tump over with that cooler in the passenger window.

My circles for those are family, distant cousins, genealogy. Then go to http://www.findpeopleonplus.com/ and use the term genealogy or just use your email contacts and maybe you'll recognize a bunch.
