I'm struggling to be excited about the probate indexing. The Ohio collection says that it's not completely  indexed and to browse by county for what's available. I've attempted a few dry runs with the Ohio specific search and the county I'm searching doesn't seem to appear. 

We're often told to look at the record description to know what may be in a collection. However, the description lacks in details to ascertain that information. Thus my excitement is very much tempered. Should this be the case? Anyone else feel the same?

Often when a collection first comes out it takes a bit to get used to the tricks of finding what we are looking for. Excitement is often rewarded with patients.

The Townsends of Ohio my Brick Wall. I'm working through the Townsends for in the 1880s US  Census in Franklin County, Ohio in attempts to find connections. Do you have Townsend relatives in Ohio? #genealogy   #brickwalls   #genealogy

Have you checked the FamilySearch.org tree for your ancestors? Chances are, if there are many copies of your ancestor on other websites, they are already on the Family Tree. All you need to do is link to them and then you're off! #familysearch   #tipsandtricks   #genealogy

Fab Find Alert: This Proud 2B Canadian kit was perfect for my Canadian Vacation project. The red/white combination has also worked well for other scrapbook layouts. This kit is well designed and worth picking up!! #digiscrapbooking   #fabfinds

+Devon Lee I LOVE playing with making new DigiScrap things. I haven't tried scrapping that way yet, although I do collage sometimes to challenge myself as an artist. To me scrapping is a just another type of collage, and all of you scrappers are artists, too.
Enjoy!
Mary Connor's inspiring designs have pushed me in a different direction just by being inspiring. I am about to offer a new leather leaf set. NEW--as in, bigger, hopefully better and also russet in color like the maple leaves of autumn from my girlhood days up north.
These probably will not match her set at all, yet that is not the goal. The goal today is to make leather look like fall leaves, and possibly vice versa.

The LDS church is doing it's part to help leaders lead on family history. It's up to leaders to learn and pray to know how to incorporate this principles. 
FamilySearch.org is the source for many valuable family history resources, but LDS.org is the source for information about the interaction of the members and family history within the Church organization. LDS.org does not dup...

When my motivation has stalled, perhaps I need to check out a new record collection.... http://nancysfamilyhistoryblog.blogspot.com/2014/11/when-motivation-has-stalled.html
nothing does it like finding a new website to search. Yesterday evening I was looking at photos posted on my hometown's Mineral Ridge Historical Society Facebook page. As I scrolled through the entries I noticed that someone had posted a link to Niles newspapers. Niles was the nearest larger ...

Red/white is a great scrapbook combination. I used the Proud 2B Canadian kit for a recent trip to Canada and had everything I needed to complete the project quickly. The BEST part of this kit is that the red/white combination works with so many other layouts as well. It's a great kit and would be a great addition to your collection.

BTW... I did not get paid to promote the kit. I really want to praise the designers whose work has really helped accomplish my goals.

I'm still hunting for scrapbook kits to purchase that fit a new project that I have coming up. I found a color scheme that I thought represents the character of the project.

Does anyone have tips on how to search for digi kits with a specific color scheme in mind?

Does anyone happen to know of a kit that you can share a link to that has these colors in it?  

If you have a kit that are these colors, please let me know. I've very interested and eager to start scrapbooking!!!

I am actually making a few things that might be of use. I feel inspired! And all because of this discussion we have been having.
:)
Plus, I love those colors, and always will.
I will shortly be posting a few 12 x 12 backgrounds, along with some 8.5 x 11 ones that you might choose to use, all matching your colors.
By tonight, they should be ready!
:)
I attribute routinely, as we have to obey copyright laws, but these can be a royal pain to figure out. Some countries require one thing, while others require something else. Royal. Pain. That's why the Studio's blog tries always to keep it simple for the guests.
Obsidiandawn.com has some really wonderful brushes, as does Brusheezy.com, but we still need to keep people's copyrights. It can get rather complicated, can't it?
Be on the lookout for new things, all inspired by our chat!
And thanks!
:)

I'm in need of ideas for 80s kits that are available for purchase. I liked the idea of the "Before I Was Your Mom, I Survived Teens" because o the different embellishments that were noted in the 80s. I didn't like the color scheme, but I might be able to change it a bit (tone down the vibrancy to fit the tones of the photos I have). 

Any ideas y'all have would be SOO insanely helpful

Introduction
I love three things: genealogy, scrapbooking, and my family. Okay, I love more, but the major point of this blog is to share my genealogy research and how I take that research and turn it into something my children can enjoy.

I am a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in business and a minor in journalism. I have been doing family history work since the 90's.
