I am thankful for (fill in name) because….

I am thankful for my grandmother for all the meals she made while she was alive.  She always had 3-4 meats, several veges, all kinds of pies and cakes and much more.  The smell of breakfast cooking will remain with me all my life.  I’ve never tasted gravy as good as hers, but my cousin Jill almost has it down for which I am thankful.  My grandmother would wake up early to cook and go to bed late getting ready for the next day.  Oh, and her fried chicken was sooo good. 

So, my thanks goes to Mamma, Sarah Bonnie Murphy Smith (1915-2002)

I received this email from Barry J. Ewell and wanted to pass it along to you:

Over the last couple years, I have met genealogists world-wide through conference presentations, genealogy research, and common interest to help one another in our search for ancestors.  The focus of this email is simply to let you know that a new and exciting genealogy website will launch in the fall of 2008.

 What is is a world-class website designed to provide genealogists with how-to resources. has been two years in the planning and development.  You’ll find hundreds of knowledge-based articles, podcasts, and videos to help genealogists with their research.  

What am I asking of you?

1.    Please register your email to receive the announcement when my launches.  In addition you will be given free access to free premium content.

 2.    Please share the news that is coming with others you think will have an interest. 

Kindest regards, 

Barry J. Ewell
