The Carnival of Genealogical Societies, 2nd edition has listed a wonderful topic. It is “Does your society collaborate with other societies (genealogical, historical, lineage, etc.) Or groups? (Local library, family history center) Why or why not? What works or needs improvement?”
Introducing my first pic of new granddaughter, MacKenzie due anyday now. This is the best holiday gift.
(19th Edition of Smile for the Camera)
My 2nd great grand-uncle, Noah Washington Shook, had a son, Bolivar Lee Shook. He wrote the song, “Cabin on the Hill”, recorded by Flatt and Scruggs.
“Lucky You” if any of my Irish surnames matches yours! And “Lucky Me” as well. Here are my Irish surnames.
I have decided to participate in the weely blogging where we are given a topic to blog about. I chose this picture of my five brothers. I have 5 brothers and 2 sisters. We all live all over and this was one of the last times that all my brothers were together.
This is my 21 year old son Michael. This photo was taken right before we left to get his baby blessing. He was so cute. I still have this little outfit that my other two kids wore on their blessings.
This carnival is a “Show & Tell”. I have chosen a picture I found of my mom (Betty Helen Roaten Smith McKinnis) and dad (Marlow Roger Smith) about a month before they got married. This puts the photo taken about May 1960. I was even told this may have been the dress she was married in. The photo was taken in front of my dad’s house in Booneville, Prentiss County, MS. Although they are not presently married, they are still best friends and they frequently double date with their new spouses. I was born in May 1961, so almost a year later from the time this picture was taken I came into the world. Yeah…. This is the only picture from that time that I know of that has them together. I am so happy that I found it.
Are your ancestor’s from Termini Imerese, Sicily. Check out my article for more information about this beautiful place.
For the 5th Edition Smile For The Camera – A Carnival Of Images, we are to show our ancestors or family with their hats or hair. I chose my son, Michael, as he use to love to wear hats and he has gone thru some crazy hair styles.
Michael, loved wearing HATS when he was 3. During his teens, we went thru some stressful times, but he wore his Graduation Cap with pride and made me one PROUD MOM!
