I've operated a free family history website since 2000. And, over the years I've seen many genealogy and family history websites come and go. I can understand why as it's expensive to run a larger genealogy website, and I appreciate all of those who give it a try.
What I have a problem with are those websites that claim to be a free family history…Continue

I am sure the spelling can come in a few different fashions, when it comes to William the Conqueror and his name. I am attempting to write a small tidbit of history in my own words on William, who was much loved by my family for generations and the love came into my great-grandmother Joy Harvey , who spoke of William the Conqueror so very often.
William the Conqueror was our legacy , our inheritance our my words from what my beloved grandmother would say.…Continue
It’s been a little over a month since my last blog post where I shared how I was heading out to Los Angeles to help my parents in their transition to an assisted living facility. I’m happy to report that they are settled in and making the adjustment to their new lifestyle. They have their moments of “how did we get here?” but for the most part, they appreciate the regular and delicious meals, the nurse who makes sure they each take their medication on time each day, the plethora of…Continue

Trust God more. The passage of time means things are going to change we must look forward to the change.
To look back is to defeat the purpose of the change. To have good memories is a good thing. Look forward to '
remembering the good things. Let God have the bad memories and help you move…Continue

each indentation telling a story
of a time past,
and whimsical dreams.
Indentations of tormented moments,
and life through squinted eyes.
The face once smooth
now holds wrinkles,
it can now cradle and contain
the tears that once flowed.
Happiness of birth and sorrow
driven aches of fear,
and the thrill…Continue

I am really pleased with the recent digitized records at familysearch.org. I found some amazing records for Nansemond, Virginia that had been really elusive, and just recently I found that there are some 1905 New York census records. I looked up some of my ancestors, and found them easily. Apparently there are some problems that still need to be worked out for some of these records, but I find it just so encouraging that there are as many as there are, and that they are so…Continue

I write about Frank Boyd, not just because he was my grandfather, but primarily because his family was never known by my father. Frank died in 1960, I was four. Old enough to remember that I had a grandpa. Old enough to remember what he looked like. Old enough to know that we had no relatives from his side of the family.
I write about Frank Boyd because he told that he was from Waycross, GA. I found Frank Boyd in Waycross, GA because he told that he had sister Mary and…Continue

We recently discovered a link between our family and that of a well-researched online family tree on the Ellwood family of Cumbria, England. This has expanded the scope of our Cumbria genealogy research enormously, and we have found many people with Ellwood family members shown in online trees, often with strange anomalies and glaring errors.
We have started an…Continue

A storyboard is an essential tool for laying out a video or film project to communicate the look of a piece, to show how a story or plot unfolds and to organize the sequence of scenes before any time or money has been spent on studio sets, location shoots or special effects. It serves as a roadmap for producers, directors, casts, crews, animators, audio engineers and post-production editors.
First developed by Disney Studios back in the 1930’s for their early animated films and used…Continue
