What legacy did YOUR family leave?
Don’t you just hate it when you have those “duh” moments? Maybe you don’t ever have those, but I sure do. Just this last week I was confronted with how much time I had wasted by not following one of the basic principles of genealogy. Over and over again I have read that the first […]
This morning I was sitting at my desk, going through my email and preparing to deal with the mundane chores of paying bills etc. when suddenly I was transported into another world. Into a time and place where the situations of daily life make me vow to never complain again, about anything, ever, I mean […]
Labor Day, for many, is the signal of the end of summer, the last weekend for a camping trip, the last big bar-b-que, the neighborhood swimming pool closes, no more white pants, the beginning of the football season, and [huge sigh of relief for parents, disappointment for kids] the signal for the start of school.

Have you ever had a serious case of information overload? That’s what I’m suffering from right now. FGS in Fort Wayne was amazing, but exhausting! Classes all day from 8 am until 6 pm and then off to the Allen County Library for research each evening until 11. It was actually open until midnight Wednesday, […]
FGS is only a couple of weeks away and planning for it is my biggest task right now. The question of what to pack for a conference is always puzzling . There are so many variables between what I might bring and what others bring depending upon the mode of travel. Obviously, if you are […]
The registration is long ago done, the plane tickets purchased, hotel reserved (not the one I wanted…too slow there), still need to decide if I rent a car or use taxi/shuttle combo. I’m ready for FGS coming up in just over a month. Well, not quite. The biggest decisions still need to be made. How […]
Many of you may have used the wonderful maps produced by Arphax Publishing. These are those Family Maps of such and such a county. They take the land grant information from the BLM GLO site and put it on a map so that you can place it on a modern map. Last year I had […]
I sit here on the airplane returning from Birmingham, Alabama with my brain full to overflowing after a week spent at IGHR, as the Institute of Genealogy & Historical Research is commonly known. This annual event has been held at Samford University in Birmingham each year since 1962. The Institute has changed and grown […]
The opportunity of a lifetime! That’s the only way to describe the unique synergy that will happen August 21-24 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. All of the families that I research, except my own, ended up in the West and in doing so passed through the Midwestern states, particularly Ohio and Indiana. New England and New […]
You may have noticed this emblem on the sidebar of this blog. It is there to direct your attention to one of the most exciting genealogy events to be held in 2013, Journey Through Generations, the Federation of Genealogical Societies annual conference. It will be held this year in Fort Wayne, Indiana August 21-24. Those […]
