We need to do this.
I have considered this before back in 2014, but due to circumstances of age, losing loved ones, and time, it has come to the forefront of my mind again. My mom and her twin sister who are the last of their core family of 13 ...

I love to read about families and their histories, even if they are not my own. Some people do not want to hear about people unless it is their family. I think that is kind of selfish. I try to think about others, as well as myself. I have worked on my family history since 1987, and I have over 12,000 people in my RootsMagic database.
Thanks, for sharing about your family and you help give me the motivation to continue with my writing, even though none of my family seem to care at all. My mother lived with us for the last six years of her life, and I picked her brain, because even though her short term memory was not so good, her memories from the past were excellent. One of my sites is http://texastudors.blogspot.com
God bless you, Sally from Texas, U.S.A.

What is your experience or opinion? #genealogy  #truth #Worldwidegenealogy
Many genealogists before me have sounded the warning to only use Find a Grave memorials as a tool and not always as pure fact. Those that have headstones are considered by many as valid evidence of the death and burial of the...

Joy in the ordinary... #beautiful
Well, you said you wanted an adventure he said faint hint of a smile around his mouth. Not like this, I muttered as I slipped into the stream of shoppers headed with undue haste towards the door, large white flakes contrasting against my dark hoody. It was cold and we were acting like a herd …

Excited and open to help. #History  and #Genealogy  together are so much fun. #WWgenealogy

Love and Covenants are a forever choice.
One starry night on October 24th, 1970, a couple professed their vows to love and cherish each other, and she took his surname as hers to honor. In their toast to each other, it was made mention of a “toast to their love to...

Thanks +Jill Ball  Great blogs I had not seen yet. Wish I had the time to join. My blog suffers. :-)
I'm a survivor! Last month I blogged about my rash decision to join the 2016 Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I am pleased to report that I crossed the finish line on time last Saturday with around 1300 other bloggers. It was ...

Great mixture of genealogy and history. #Maine #NewEngland #genealogy
Pam Beveridge originally shared:
 
Fascinating! There's so much gold waiting to be mined in the many manuscripts and other jewels resting as yet undisturbed in libraries, societies and private hands. Glad there are devoted people making tapestries of many pieces of plain cloth.
If it had not been for a notation in Rev. Seth Noble’s diary, this shipwreck might never have come to light.

Good show. Right there with you, Myrt
DearREADERS, Perhaps Melissa Barker said it best: "I wonder how things like this post effect people who are thinking about blogging or just started blogging, I don't want anyone to be discouraged." She is referring to "What is the future of genealogical blogs?" posted today in James Tanner's ...

The store only honors appointments. If you are traveling find a different store even a Wal Mart who will see you instead of waiting until the store is closed to take care of your tire. I sat in the store for 2 hours and 30 min. When asked why they were taking so long and why I was the only one left in the store the young man said we honor all our appointments first. Then I found out if you are in the area they go on their apps and say I am coming in and they are automatically given an appointment even if someone else has walked in that is traveling and given preference over them. Totally not the place to go if you are traveling.

The employees are helpful and hard working. The out buildings, a blacksmith shop, log home, and storage of the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show were clean and authentic. The museum and tour was informative and interesting. My grandchildren love going there.

Based on my several maintenance visits... I bought my Elantra 2011 here in Feb. 2012. The sales staff was courteous and helpful right through the time I drove it off the lot. My scheduled maintenance visits have always been exceptionally well handled. They have been quick, courteous, and kept my car in shape for my road trips. Thanks.

Dr Little was very professional, but personable too. He was interested in my family as people not just as patients. His expertise is readily apparent. He uses the best methods for diagnosing treatment plans and will work with you if it is costly. His emphasis is on prevention, but uses the best techniques for repair. I am very glad to have found him for our family treatment.
