Book about Me, Written by You

I haven't been doing much with this blog lately, however, I am participating in "the Book of Me, Written by You". Here is a link to that blog.

Updating the binders.

This is a photo of some of my research my binders. As my sister has stated, I may be crazy. I have been spending a lot of time organizing and updating my binders. I have updated their covers with personalized photos. I am now updating the dividers in my binders with a personalized, tab divider page. I am hoping this lends more authority and importance to my research after I am gone. I have also been updated my citations, so on.

Cousin bait

I have heard much from genealogy friends about "cousin bait". I never really thought that this blog would attract any attention,  however, this week I received an email from a relative on the west coast. She is my second cousin once removed. Her grandmother was my mother's cousin. Her grandma and aunt always came to visit my Grandparents and I remember spending many hours with them playing cards and actually doing some crafting. It was so nice to know that my feeble attempts at blogging actually made a connection with someone.

This is a picture of Fran of my mother, two of her brothers, a cousin of mine, and Fran's daughter.
