A New Educational Option

Genealogy has been a huge part of my life. I have a passion for my own research and a passion for teaching others how to search for their genealogical treasures. I have friends who have been able to break down their brick walls thanks to my counseling and thanks to my education in genealogy I have been able to break down the most stubborn brick walls in my own family tree.


A new opportunity has opened for me to not only expand on my own genealogical education, but also for me…

Ancestors Connect Us to History

I have a passion for America unmeasureable to anything else in life. I'm scared that our current politicians have forgotten the definition of words that make life truly worth living, such as freedom and democracy. My passion and love for my country came in elementary school when I was taught to have pride in my country. In private school, I was not taught a party line. I was taught about the rich history of this great nation, the good and the bad. My passion only grew when my maternal…

So, with all of this and the normal day to day responsibilities (housework, playing… Continue

For My Grandparents

One aspect of my life that sometimes makes me sad is that I didn't know either set of grandparents very well. My paternal grandparents were both born and raised in a small New York town. They moved out to California after all three of their children had settled here. They moved to a small farm in Paradise and then when they could no longer keep up with the farm, they moved to Chico where they both died. My paternal grandmother died 24 Apr 1990, a day shy of her birthday. I was in seventh grade.… Continue

Check out your local library or nearby ones. They are all different, but my local library has a large section of video, audio, computer games and programs. Just an Idea.

Hi Jennifer and thanks for the invite. This has been an interesting journey on GenWise so far since I joined the other day. It's interesting also that you received so many replies about your search for gen software. They are all very informative.
