Grandma Unknown generation.

Grandma Great Great Great unknown.  When I was young Grandad could name her. We did not write in the album. When older he could only remember she was a Grandma on his side and some history about her.  Mom did write data finally down in the album in  1958.  I sent copies of unlabled pictures to Hoffman/Huffman Reunion in  Iowa.  I have not known of a reunion in Greene Co. Pa ever. Though a small group of us got together in September 1993. 

Waynesburg, PA was the place and I stayed with…

SPRING IS ALMOST HERE?? MAYBE OR NOT??

  

SPRING, is it approaching, just slowly, slowly, slowly.  It is 77 Degrees and the change is so drastic  I feel out of sync.

Planted the 3 plants for the garden in pots, one will need moved to larger pot when I locate what I am going to toss that is no longer producing.  These plants are for the Butterflies and Hummingbirds we encourage in our yard. WE lost one of these 2 years ago. 

The Cherry tree is like my genealogy. It is budding on branches and…

DNA and a connection Unexpected.

  

   Jones researchers,  we had our line verified but was exciting to see DNA some how links us with a group of individuals that I am happy to learn.

    DNA wish I could grasp it better. I understand it 's workings not how to make it work.  

    We have an ancestor that is Indian and it shows.   Paper trail showed it 4 years ago now DNA somehow does.

   Teague Jones wife seems to be the link in some format.

Working on the Family Tree and What did I See?

  As I was working on my family tree, what did I see?   Something that really surprised me.

  You see bullying is something that, I have been around many, many years.  Working in the school system, we learned a

   lot  of  about bullying.  What causes it? What may prevent it? Why does it happen?

  So as I was reading an old newspaper article was surprised to see this topic is probably as old as humans now I fear.

  Why is it so hard to steer a…

       Do you have it in your genealogical file?   Have you shared the information of this day with 

       your children and grandchildren.  

      This information should be included in your time line and so it is not forgotten, in case the other 

      part of the  world wants us to forget.

     If you have forgotten much of it, or…

Researching during the Summer

  Researching during the Summer

  Yes, it can be fun, or it can be stressful. If you get to go to a AC'd library it's super. If you set at home and have only fans not always greatly desired.

   I think weather affects our drive to do research.  Do you notice if weather affects your research?  Since I was  at the Seminar in Grand Rapids many things are made more aware than before.  It was an awesome program. I hope they do it again.

A Different Approach...... Is It Needed

  

A Different Approach.... Is iIt Needed

It seems there are so many sites out there that researchers, yes even older researchers are getting a bit frustrated.

My serious concern is the loss of Rootsweb.com with their surname files and  lists for regions you can share your data with people with.  Have not heard how New York is doing with our records either. Now that is a state of major need for me on four lines.  

So reading NGS, NEHGS and…
