I was able to make a loan to a tech entrepreneur in NYC today from my KIVA repayments. A good day!
A portion of the loan helped a member to purchase modules and programs for computer classes, and fund advertising efforts for her electronics store

Exactly! This is how we honor America.
 
Happy 4th Of July America! Let's Take Back Our Country From The Super Rich And The Corporations: Mayday.US

I don't care if you are a republican, democrat, independent, socialist, communist or whatever you MUST agree that money has corrupted the political system in the US and the politicians only care about who has the most of it to give them.

Politics today is more about doing what the lobbyists want them to do then what the people and the country need. We all know that and can see it in action in all of Washington, DC.

http://Mayday.US is a SuperPAC to end SuperPACs. They are raising money from me and you to use that money against politicians who love the bribe money they get from the super wealthy and big business. It's the only way we have any chance of getting a government that cares about the people more than who's putting the most cash in their pockets.

Watch this video, it explains WAY better than I can and take action. MAKE A PLEDGE OF SUPPORT for this TODAY. The goal is to raise $5 million by today and if we do that money will be matched dollar for dollar and come fall we can do some good.

PLEASE, watch and share this or create your own post about MayDay.US and get the word out and take action TODAY.

Schwanky! Wehrenberg Theatres plans new theater complex in Shrewsbury—the complex will include Five Star Lounges and Suite Seats, which both include heated leather recliners, and servers who offer food and drink service. http://bizj.us/w00k9

A cousin, to be sure. But what kind of cousin (besides much loved) has yet to be determined.
Frank Popp was another of my grandfather's cousins who emigrated to the United States. He was a storied cousin to my father and his siblings, living a glamorous life in Los Angeles and sending photographs to them of beaches and Rose Bowl parades. Several years ago I was fortunate to be able to ...

When Jonathan Godwin died in 1791, his widow, Rachel, was allowed to keep his estate in her possession. No mention, however, was made of what was contained in his estate. In 1792 Richard Godwin took an inventory of Jonathan's estate which included only one tract of land containing 50 acres.

This is that once in a blue moon moment when I ask you to consider a donation to a cause I hold dear - campaign finance reform. No ribbons, or walks or charitable auctions. Just a request to think about how our elections are funded and how representative our government truly is. This is a creative way of addressing the problem. 
Our democracy needs an upgrade.

I agree and think this is the only way we can clean up this mess. Just looking at all the money spent in elections today that comes from unknown donors in protected PACs - there should be truth and transparency in advertising. Thanks for sharing this +Susan Clark - will do.

I heard a lovely, brief interview tonight on WAMU with Prof. Amy Clark. Scots Irish, Appalachia, family history, and writing. Check her out.
Nearly a third of college students in the United States are first-generation—meaning their parents and grandparents didn't go. For many of these students, entering academia can feel like moving to a foreign land. Lee Ward (James Madison University), author of First Generation College Students, ...

I shall probably have to edit this next week. A whole new circle of cousins seems to have appeared as I researched John. The joys of families where both parents share the same surname....

This like it a great tool to work with. Just the thing I need to put the lessons +Lisa Louise Cooke taught us last month at the Midwest Genealogy Center into practice.
There is a 3 ½ minute video on how to use this tool. It uses control points to connect the historic map to a modern map. If you've ever overlaid historic maps on Google Earth, you know it can be challenging to get the overlaid map to be the correct size and orientation to correlate to the ...

Yes - mapping technology and the ability to use it with genealogy and family history is really taking off. Thanks to early enthusers (those tech cheerleaders and teachers who told us we could do this) like +Lisa Louise Cooke we are all over Google and OpenStreetMap. Thanks for catching the post at NGS +Susan Clark and sharing it here.

Distant cousins have the same photograph. Only problem is we have it labeled as different people...
Well, well, well. A mystery has unfolded. I was roaming through Ancestry's shaky green leaves a few weeks ago and found a copy of this photograph on someone's tree. A photograph of my 2nd great-aunt Barbary Sawyer Proffit I posted on the blog back in 2010. I assumed it had been taken from the ...

Story
Tagline
Addicted to family history, genealogy and research.
Introduction
I am a lifelong family historian, descended from generations of family historians. Sifting though archives and microfiche has always been one of my most favorite ways of spending time.
Bragging rights
In 2010 I began blogging about my family's history at Nolichucky Roots. I write about my mother's East Tennessee family, my father's Rusyn roots and my husband's maternal Maryland and Virginia ancestry. At some point I hope to include his paternal lines, as well.
