New Year is Coming, Are Your Goals Set
Oh yes, in the middle of all your hectic paced days, you should be thinking of January and what your Genealogical, Family Goals will be. You can do this mentally but make sure you write it down so as you do either a large goal or small you can cross sit off and feel more fulfilled at the end of the year.
Why you ask? Because have goals propels you to accomplish more and possibly be more organized.

In this age of technological advancements and the use of social media, searching for a long last ancestor has become much easier. But consider this, what may be a exciting find, can also be a privacy disaster.
Public records are available to anyone who knows how to search for them. A genealogical treasure trove of material is out there. But often those same public records are misused as a form of identity theft. Public records leave clues that can lead to other records and…

Since my family moved around so much, I have very little in the way of pictures or letters of my ancestors. What I do have is so very precious to me.
My mother never met her paternal grandmother, and only had one photograph of her. Her grandmother had passed away from pneumonia leaving very young children to be raised by others, among them my…

I was doing research for a family history newsletter I send out to my kin on Mom's side of our family when I discovered we have some rough characters on our kin list.
I was checking the Blanton line back and remember Martha Shepherd marrying one of my Blanton g-grandfathers (George)back in the late 1700's or early 1800. It seems Martha had a brother, James Pendleton Shepherd or Shepard as it was sometimes spelled, who moved to Kansas and he had two or three grandsons who grew up to…Continue

I recently attended my 40th class school reunion out in Southern California. There was a whirlwind of activities, two parties on a Friday night, the real reunion on Saturday night and then a brunch picnic the following Sunday morning. I didn’t attend the brunch, choosing instead to have breakfast with a small group of woman I have known since I was a very young girl. It was a good choice. It allowed us an intimate time to reflect on our lives and the past two days, and I didn’t want to…Continue

My grandpa, Henry Redeker, was adopted when he was young. No one knows who the real birth parents are. The only information I have is that his last name would have been Weber. He was born in Wisconsin in 1925. His adoptive parents are Minnie and John Redeker. After doing some research, I potentially have a match to who his birth parents are. I checked out the 1930 census and discovered there was a Henry Weber Sr. and Regna Weber with a son named Henry living together. Henry would have been 5…Continue
