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.
Marcy, my daughter, has some beautiful Pins she is selling. They are for the hair and/or blouse. She is running a Holiday Special, so check it out.

I was waiting on my husband this morning during his dental visit. Knowing he would be there a while, I grabbed some issues of Casefile Clues I had not read yet. The issue that caught my attention this morning was Volume 1, Number 26 of January 24, 2010 titled, “A few Searches on Google Books”.
Clark Doan of Tennessee Genealogical Society gave a wonderful interactive lecture on Navigating Roadblocks. I want to share with you some of the things discussed that night. Each of us was given a question to answer. Below are the questions and some of the replies each group gave.
Genealogy Cruises are fast becoming the new way to attend genealogical conferences. The genealogy cruise has the speakers and lectures that we are use to; but also adds the wonderful food and relaxation a cruise can give.
