I just want to let you know that not all the Sheppards emigrated. Many of us remained. In fact, we're having a Sheppard family gathering this weekend in Tipperary, just a few short miles from CastleSheppard. CastleSheppard was the home of William Sheppard, the younger brother of Thomas Sheppard.
This weekend gathering coincides with the 100th anniversary of my great-grandfather James Sheppard. We are all there to unveil a memorial to him. Incidentally, my uncle and father are…Continue

With this blog I move from my father's side of the family to my mother's side. And when I say the Cox family is scattered and disconnected I mean nothing negative... just that it is. I recently met my Canadian cousin (2nd cousin to be exact) via her friend on Ancestry.com! She "introduced" me to other cousins here in the states and until now we really didn't know about each other at all. That's the disconnectedness I refer to. So with the history my…Continue

For years I have been blaming The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, whose 'Ancestry' family trees are - or were - notoriously difficult to amend, and hence never were.
This year, Millennia Corporation will be celebrating their 29th year in business, and the 17th year since they first released their Legacy Family Tree genealogy software.
Legacy is a feature-rich package that lets you chart family trees, record details about individuals, and otherwise track your family…Continue

The current availability of online databases and the mass photocopying of searchable historical documents have led to a renewed interest in genealogy, and it is now much easier to fill in the basic outline of our family trees.
Many are quickly fascinated by the process of slowly leapfrogging back one generation at a time to learn the names of the ancestors who are responsible for our existences today, and the continuity with the past that we establish seems to give our lives an…Continue

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of watching La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty), an epic Italian film in the style of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, but with more cinematic greatness achieved by the advances in technology since the 1960s as well as a more existential examination of life. It was truly captivating and I am planning on a second viewing next week as the MFAH is bringing it back for an…Continue

The first Corbett in America was Robert Corbett (1640-1695). Robert was born in Moreton Corbet, Shropshire England and came to Massachusetts colony as a young and unmarried man about 1660. Robert Corbett is my 8th great grandfather. (By the way, Corbett and Corbet are interchangeable spellings with no distinction regarding family lines... it was a matter of choice how our ancestors spelled it). Robert Corbett served in King Phillip's War 1675-1676 along the…Continue

So I came across this blog: quite accidentally. It's about sharing information about ancestors once a week and it has me spinning in multiple directions. Half the fun of researching your family history is sharing it with others (and my husband has had his ears full of hearing about my family).…Continue
