Dragonfly TV is currently looking for families from outside the UK who would like to travel to Great Britain to discover long lost relatives they never knew existed. Come read more…
Randy Seaver over at Genea-Musings came up with another great FUN idea. Here is his challenge for today:
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is based on Katie O’s post You Might Be a Genealogist If … on the You Are Where You Came from blog:
Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings has posted his challenge for Saturday Night Genealogy. This week is about Genealogisms..
Kim Cattrall was featured recently on the show Who Do You Think You Are? (WDYTYA). It was a very emotional episode which examined her family’s feelings as a result of a husband/father leaving a wife and three young daughters during the depression. He had moved about three hours away, remarried and raised another family never looking back and financially supporting his first family. As Kim Cattrall researched what happened to her missing grandfather, all the emotions that had been bottled up for many years began to resurface.
A new year has started and it begins a new series of 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History. The one for this week is as follows:
Week 1: New Year’s. Did your family have any New Year’s traditions? How was the New Year celebrated during your childhood? Have you kept these traditions in the present day? This challenge runs from Saturday, January 1, 2011 through Friday, January 7, 2011. I challenge everyone to participate as often as they can and time permits.
