Have you heard of MapMe.com?

     Have  you heard of Mapme.com?  You may want to try it.  You can map and tell a family story all in one.

     I am working on making it work.    

     Maps are really critical keys in our research. I think I picked  up the information about it from Dick Eastman.

     But other things have happened and I did not get it posted right away.

     But it should be a lot of fun for most of you all.

Family History Day

What are you doing for Family History Day?  What are you doing for Family History Month in October?

Is your group looking at putting on a display or event? Will you be sharing data with others at the local Library?

Maybe your community puts on a big gala?  I am thankful that we try to recognize Family and History.

I hope you are too.  So maybe you should start planning for it now.

  your research.  Yes, for some it comes easier than others.  We early American downliners, have such a mixed  heritage we seldom have anything near that type of success.  

  We seem to have various religious backgrounds and changing as the time moves forward.  Having found some    genetic backgrounds are more true to the basic faith…

Puzzle Pieces, That is What They Are

Puzzle Pieces, That is What They Are

Putting together new data into my program, my mind said, new pieces to the puzzle.
