Matrilineal Monday - How I messed up my GPS

Why am I writing about a Global Positioning System on my genealogy blog? And how did you mess it up, Deb?

OK first things first - I'm not talking about the Global Positioning Systems that some people have in their vehicles.

Mystery Monday - Beware of those bible pages!

As genealogists, we are often overjoyed to find a bible record, because now all of our questions will be answered on a particular family. SO overjoyed we read things that aren't there or worse take the information that is there at face value. Sometimes simple math should tell us something is a miss.

Who Tells the family? Follow-up

Two years ago I blogged the question, "Who tells the family?" where I asked the question of who tells the family "back home" when a distant family member dies. In that posting I asked, "Did they (the settlers of his estate, his local friends or someone else) put an inquiry into a Kentucky paper to locate the family of Garland Slemmons long ago resident? I don't know, but I would really like to find out."

Well guess what I found!

Why am I looking for descendants of Nellie George Collins Chesney?

I love pictures....there isn't a genealogist that I know who doesn't love pictures....However, there is a limit to how many pictures I can have in my house. Over the years I have become the keeper of the family pictures. Pictures from and of my: grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, kids, great-grandparents, etc, etc.

So I have decided to let technology come to my rescue.  My Plan?
