About Me

I was born in 1969 in St. Louis, Missouri and have lived here all of my life except for a few years during college. I am a grant writer for a 501c3 by trade, and have been hooked on genealogy research for only the past two years, though I have long been interested in my own family history.

In addition to the genealogy blog linked to above (and which you can read a few recent posts from below) I maintain a personal blog and a site dedicated to the 19th century French author, Victor Hugo.

I write poetry and perform locally at open mics

OHHH, I just found Katie's comment, way at the bottom, perhaps I haven't been looking down far enough? I will try this for the next few to see if it working the same all the time....sorry to bother about nothing! !!

John, I keep getting emails that have links to supposedly recently posted content, but when I click the link I come to the site, NOT the recent post. In other cases, the link goes directly to the new link. Here is what I just received:

but that top link does NOT take me to her post, which I can't find by going to the beginning or end of the posts. What gives?

John, your comment about ownership on the suggestions discussion was really great. Would you mind re-posting that as a new discussion in the Member Help group?

The differences between the GenealogyWise emails

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 11:20pm 0 Comments

Disclaimer I am not associated in any way with GenealogyWise or FamilyLink.

I have noticed in the groups that I created and participate in some confusion as to the emails that people are receiving automatically announcing comments, discussions, and replies. In the absence of a "help" or "FAQ" document for me to point them towards, I thought I would write up a post on my understanding of them. I spent several years in an IT environment and what seems a lifetime on computers,… Continue

For Group Admins: Disable "Send Message to All"

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 11:47am 0 Comments

If you created a Group - you are the Admin of that group


Under Admin Options you should see "Edit Group"

Click on that, and on that panel you should see "Allow members to send messages to the entire group"

I highly recommend that you uncheck that box if it is currently checked.

What happens with that option is if someone clicks on the link "Send Message to Group" the message arrives in the *email* of *everyone* who is a member of the group.… Continue

Amanuensis: a person who writes what another dictates or copies what has been written by another

Perhaps you are lucky enough to have an ancestor’s journal, or a bundle of letters they wrote. Perhaps a grandparent recorded their memories on a cassette tape before they passed away.

Have you considered scanning/digitizing these documents into your computer, and transcribing the contents?


1) Handwriting fades over time. As long as one… Continue
