After doing research to complete my presentation to the Genealogical Society I have decided to make a few notes here.
Migration happend once we were created. YDNA and genetic researchers are saying that we migrated out of Africa to the north and then east and west. New information surfacing is considering muddling those waters. When are they not muddled.
It seems the state of Georgia has some…Continue

Last week NPR ran a segment on their show, Marketplace, entitled “Coming Soon, The Cash Peters Story” which was a look into the world of video biographies spotlighting one Los Angeles firm, Legacy Flicks, that charges $20,000 to put your name on the marquee for 30 minutes.
The segment was humorous and played upon the egotistical aspect of making a movie about your…Continue

Today I've been sick, matter of fact, I've been sick for the last several days. Despite it all, today has been a good day. Why? Today I put photos on my GenealogyWise page. Photos that are vivid because I can remember when some of them were taken.
Looking at pictures of my grandmother, Maud Wise Hairston, and putting them on this site. Aiming that not only does her life continue because of her children, their children, but her name continues because I won't let it die. She died…Continue

I'm searching for an answer to a story that only I was told, or so I believe because no one else knows about it. One day in the late 60's my grandmother told me story. It wasn't a made-up before you go to bed story. It was with wistfulness and cloudy eyes. The kind that you share and it makes you happy and sad at the same time. Why me and why that day, could it had been preordained that genealogy would be my forte?
She spoke about when she was little and how she and her…Continue

I have found information on Nellie & Joseph FINALLY. Thanks to me FINALLY getting on Ancestry.com & my Grandma had their Marriage Certificate & Death Certificates. Which was a BIG help! However, Now I have found Joseph & Nellie! I know now that James & Mary Ramey are parents to Joseph Ramey & he had two brothers: James & Isaac Ramey. I'm kind of at a big stop with anything past James…Continue

I wish I didn't see things. Pictures in my mind of what a place once was, used to be. You were once here, you walked these streets. Back and forth, to and fro. Wasn't it natural that you tried to find more in life, and now I'm trying to find you.
You never questioned me. How do I know because I only think of my own children, and the children they will have. Until now, and who will I be, I pray they will remember my name. Never before had I thought of the next and next…Continue

Our language is changing almost every day and what means one thing today meant something completely different to our ancestors. Occupations are a great example of that , for example take a look at this list of 10:
Carrier – I always think this conjures up an image of Typhoid Mary when I see it but…Continue

I find dead people. I try to find dead people. It is my hope that I'll find someone who is alive that will tell me more about that dead person. In my own equation of life, I question my sanity. Looking for something/someone who's life is buried. Always asking the question "who were you?"
Tempting as it is to stop, it's hard. Could it be my addicted personality? Perhaps, but finding them helps explain who I am. My own existence is based on past ancestors, not just from my…Continue

Every genealogist must be an eternal optimist. How else would one continue the search? With a dead end around every corner, there are as many disappointments as there are corners and dead ends. I find that genealogy research is a lot like golf or bridge or any other pursuit that can never be perfected. At every attempt there is at least one good shot or hand that lifts your spirits, bolsters your confidence and makes you come back for…Continue

I didn't post anything here for quite a while now. I guess I felt like, if it wasn't helpful, why waste anyone's time? But, I think I need to also remember how important it is to stay in touch with the genealogy community, to give as well as take (or, wait until someone provides something to take, ha ha). To connect is also important. As Red Green says, we're all in this together, etc. Much of what I know about my ancestry was provided by others' research, even if just indirectly, by clues,…Continue

I have been blogging on four years now and I often surprise myself how much I really have to say about this subject of capturing one’s story, one’s history, for posterity. It is something that I have been passionate about since I started Legacy Multimedia in 2003 after seeing just how much film and photos and other bits of our past were floating off into oblivion in garbage dumps, recycle bins, vintage shops and other places where I would continue to find entire abandoned photo albums, cast…Continue
Burbank's Jamboree, had comments a plenty on Migration and Migration Routes, how to locate in census, how to locate in land files, BLM land Records and about any way you look migration can be picked up and pulled out to add to ones family history what they did, where they went and how to find if we loose them on the trail.
Leland M did a fast, packed, and paced talk on routes across the eastern seaboard coming later into the mid west to the Pacific Ocean.

A couple days ago, my friend and client Jay Steinfeld, CEO and founder of Blinds.com posted a “tweet” on Twitter (Jay is @BlindscomCEO) that read: “If you think hiring an expert is expensive, just try an amateur!”
I found myself laughing in that “I get it but it’s really not very funny” way because it’s so true. Just…Continue
