great post Thomas!  Lots of positive thinking to start the new year!  One thing that puts a damper on my own research is doing so much volunteer work for my genealogy society that I don't have time or energy for my own research.  I'm going to work at finding a happy medium between them and me :)

Getting To Know You  - 
 
Hello folks,
I've recently downloaded the free version of Legacy and have only just begun to use it so don't really know much about it.  I have to say that I do like the way Sources are entered (compared to FTM which I've been using forever) and will probably purchase the full version soon.  I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada - born and raised in Windsor, Hants County, Nova Scotia Canada (about 50 miles from here).  Most of my ancestors have been in Nova Scotia since about 1750 so I am lucky to be able to find original records here.  I work about 4 blocks from Nova Scotia Archives and can visit there on my lunch, Wednesday evenings or Saturdays.  If anyone is starting their search for Nova Scotia ancestors, send me a message and I may be able to provide some guidance.  I am a member of two Genealogy Societies - West Hants Historical Society in Windsor, Nova Scotia and the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia in Halifax - I am currently the editor of their publication.

Hi folks!  Thanks for the invite.  I haven't really embraced Google + so I can't promise to do more than to drop by now and again.  I don't seem to have enough hours in the day to post and check in all the different types of social media.  That just about kills me because of my curious nature :)  I am interested in technology and am glad to see that this forum covers tech tips for those of us who don't have iPads or smart phones.  Would be interested in participating in a hangout if it's evening or weekend.  Hope to see you often!

I just read this on my sister's fb wall and had to repost. Positively brilliant!


To B(urn) or not to B(urn) that is the question.... On her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura: Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination .... End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them. 1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians? 2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her? 3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense. 4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them? 5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it? 6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination? 7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here? 8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die? 9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves? 10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14) I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging. Your adoring fan, James M Kauffman, Ed.D. Professor Emeritus, Dept. Of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education University of Virginia (It would be a damn shame if we couldn't own a Canadian).

The Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia office is open to members this afternoon from 1:00 to 5:00. Hope to meet some new genea-peeps and work on doing an inventory of a recent large and varied donation from a member. It'll be a good afternoon!

How Do I Do That?  - 
 
Hi folks,
I realized the other night that the source issue that paralyzed me when using FTM hasn't gone away :)  I need some help figuring out how to enter a source in Legacy.  I visited a cousin last week and gathered 3 generations of names and dates.  I want to enter the source and connect it to each piece of information.  Can someone walk me through that?

Does anyone know of a reputable, online, vintage/antique map dealer? I used to see ads in a newsletter that I got years ago, but can't remember the name.

We had a great day in Windsor today at Dill's Pumpkin Patch and watching the parade and regatta. Well done folks! It was fun and whoever ordered the weather deserves a raise :)
The headmaster of King's-Edgehill School has won the 13th annual Pumpkin Regatta in Windsor, Nova Scotia.

I only began visiting Kempsters in the last year or so and it's now one of my favourite places to eat. The portions are good sized and the service is fantastic! If you like coconut cream pie, then you will love it here. It's the best I've ever had.

Bought a small donair there yesterday. Worst donair I've ever had. Meat was more like meatloaf/hamburger. Will never buy there again

The West Hants Historical Society has a fabulous genealogy room that is packed with research resources. The mostly volunteer and some student staff are friendly and helpful. Membership is only $10 a year for an individual and you can't beat that. If you're looking for you ancestors in Hants County, this is the go-to place. And, if that's not enough, they have a wonderful museum. Great place to visit - you won't be disappointed.
