Kipp family genealogy

I recently came upon a Bible of the family surname Kipp, it is quite exhaustive with original family photos, dates and a hand written MSG. Dated 1800. It would be nice to put it in the hands of the family.

Randy's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun topic

Well, what was my greatest thing for the week in genealogy?  Number one was getting the phone tree results for people attending our Free upcoming Seminar.  

It actually was quite an affair due to, sluggish computers, lack of servers, downed systems and lost emails. No, Not Mine, but the actual people involved.  Yes, that is a first.  I may blog about it down the road.

My personal delight was linking to two more distant relatives and finding sources for five of my…

Two "Big Buts from Brentor.

I work as a kind of Secretary in this Crown Office, but one with a difference.  Just as a clock (24hr) I never seem to stop working?  Strangely, apart from my late husband (Climber) this is the only man I don't mind working for.

I like working for this person…

Photo Restoration Tips When Your Photos Are Fading

I once gave a presentation on photo restoration to a local historical group.. I stood up and said,

“It’s 10 o’clock…. do you know where your photos are?” Everyone gave a chuckle because most were familiar with that old public service announcement that used to play right before the local news. But people also laughed because they thought about their own photos, sitting in shoe boxes, quietly fading into obscurity or sitting on their computer hard-drives with names such as DSC00456.jpg.…
