Decided not to do the Family History Writing Challenge
I really thought it was possible to work on the Do-Over and do the challenge but find I'm feeling pushed and not doing a good job on either. So the Do-Over gets my full attention. Bit the bullet and ordered the birth certificate for my dad. Interesting, I c...

Week four - Genealogy Do-Over - Really? Can't we agree on a date?
With the citing of sources and learning the process, it has become very clear that it is no longer possible to ignore the birth dates differences for my father and my grandfather. My dad, Ernest Rhea and my grandpa, William Rhea, La Brea Tar Pits, October 1...

My grandpa was not a Redneck, at least not by the 1920's definition of the word. 
The phrase "You might be a Redneck", popularized by Jeff Foxworthy and defined by Merriam-Webster as a "a white person who lives in a small town or in the country especially in the southern U.S, who typically has a working-cl...

Pulling out my already thinning hair! Do-Over day one of week one is much bigger than I thought.
The magic email from Thomas MacEntee arrived in my email at 9:00 pm last night. That must mean he's three hours ahead of me. I am in Southern California. I read through it and then read it again. No problem, I got this! Jumping out of bed this morning, I he...

Changing families for the Do-Over
Thomas McEntee started the  Genealogy Do-Over .  I was instantly in, planing to do the Yeakley side of the family until today. I know it needs work and it is missing sources. I was pretty excited. Today while waiting for the Do-Over to start, I read through...

Day 1 - FHWC - Decisions - Genealogy Do-Over versus the Family History Writing Challenge
It's day one of the Family History Writing Challenge and week five of the Genealogy Do-Over . The Genealogy Do-Over headed by Thomas MacEntee had us setting all our previous research aside and starting over. Apparently I am not the only one who felt that my...

Genealogy Do-Over - Week Three - What I learned from the "Real" Genealogists
I have played with everyone's research logs. Some I like, some I find difficult, and some have great features I wish were all incorporated into one. In the many (many, many) years I have worked with my family history, I have never tracked anything. The Do-O...

Week two of the Genealogy Do-Over - My car history from 1966 to 1968
As part of the Genealogy Do-Over , we were to write our personal history to use as a starting point for research. I started mine but got sidetracked. I have boxes and boxes of slides that I wanted to scan but had misplaced (read meaning "husband lost") the ...

Valentine Cards for "In-Be-Tweens"
The perfect Valentine's Day craft for tweens.  Valentine's Day for tweens is fraught with uncertainty. They are slightly too old to buy packaged Valentines to give to their classmates and yet, still want to be involved. They are slightly too young to have a...

Genealogy Do-Over Week 1
It's January 1, 2015. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to my great grandmother who was born on January 1, 1848. I have chosen her as my focus person for the do-over. I know a great deal about Martha Jane McCollum and yet, many of the facts still allude me....

A Day Without Genealoogy Is Like a Day Without Sunshine
Introduction
I am a California native, born in Los Angeles, Much of what I write is about California and camping. I am a grandparent raising a grandchild who recently became a teenager. We spend most of our time at baseball practice and games. 

I am hooked on family history. They are no longer ancestors, they have become real people who had hopes and dreams just like me. I blog about the Yeakley/Jones family, the Rhea's and McCollum's, and my husband missing siblings (found 7, still looking for 5). He was adopted. 


Bragging rights
Tracked down 7 of my husband's missing siblings. What an adventure!

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Rojo and his service. His attention to detail is amazing and I am enjoying my new smile. I have been back for adjustments to my new partials and each time it gets better. He took the time to explain why adjustments are necessary to get a great fit and to make an appointment any time I needed it. The staff is friendly and helpful. I make a point of telling my friends that this is the place to go if they are looking for a dentist who cares.

Great food and the restaurant staff is friendly. The same family owns the El Rey Motel that is well maintained. We enjoyed our stay there.
