Dad Would Have Been 70?
Have you ever run into someone you know and haven't seen them in awhile and realize they have aged. You know mentally they have aged, as have you, but in your mind you picture them from the past not the present? Well, this year it hit me full force, my dad ...

Y'all, this service was incredible for helping me finish my #memoir  project. There is a free version that is robust and the premium version made sense because I homeschool my kids and they'll make more use of it along with me. We're learning more grammar skills with the upgrade. So... if you're struggling with spellling, grammar, and word usage... give Grammarly a try.
Bill WinterbergJournalist, AtlantaThe service goes beyond the basic spell check and grammar check built into the word processor, as Grammarly can identify correctly spelled words that are used in the wrong context.55

Memoir Writing  - 
 
No one told me that the writing process with the goal of printing the final product was a lot like being pregnant. I'm in the final stages of a personal memoir (formatting and submit to printer). This feels like I'm anticipating the due date of a sixth child! Wow! +Lynn Palermo, can you relate?

Top Five Then and Now
Summer is a GREAT time to slow down and reminisce. School is out. Vacations are filled with making memories. And your priorities can really snap into focus. The New Year comes on the tail end of the busy December season and I'm always lacking clarity. But t...

Wedding Wednesday: Happy 96 Anniversary Victor Zumstein
Don't you love a great love story. That's what Robert Victor Zumstein and Clementina Comfort had. Their stunning wedding photo from the 1920s is a treasure and a snapshot of that love. They were childhood sweethearts living in rural Ontario, Canada. Victor,...

Should I believe the paper tree?
A few years ago, my cousin sent me some information from Germany. He had contacted a researcher in Germany and asked for some information on our Mack relatives and their friends the Puseckers. He received a wonderful letter in response to his queries. A swe...

Writing a Compound Reason Statement
FamilySearch is a great online research service where you can build your family tree and attach records and memories to the leaves on your branches. However, there is one kind of record set that you need to be aware of. Index to Kentucky Death Record on Fam...

My Indexing Contribution, Request for FS Engineers
Online genealogical databases do not function without some sort of indexing program in place, be it machine or persons. If we want to find records for our ancestors using search engines rather than in-person trips to far away libraries at great cost, we sho...

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile, I'm finishing a personal history project. It should go to print next week if all goes well. After having 5 kids, this feels like a 6th pregnancy.

Glimpse Into the Buckeye Past

Frequency of Exposure Leads to Discoveries
Every year, or month even, more records become available online. This deluge of records has greatly added my research to ancestors primarily in Franklin County, Ohio and Ontario, Canada. As I encounter a new place, I can quickly access additional records wi...

Genealogy Hack: Hunt for Neighbors
Ever have trouble finding an ancestor in a record collection, such as a census? I have a little genealogy hack that you have to try. German names are quiet challenging to find English language records. My 3rd great-grandfather Joseph Geißler  has at least s...
