Due to a very busy schedule, my Freaky Friday articles will be suspended for the time being.  I haven’t had much time to come up with creative posts.  I will possibly be submitting something for Halloween along the “Freaky” aspect of the posts.  Apologies for those who tune in to read these.  Regular posting will continue.

I’m “Heart”-ed A Lot!

I’ve once again been tagged with the “I Love Your Blog” award!  A. Spence at Spence-Lowry Family History gave me this award.  Thanks!  Since I’ve been tagged once and these awards seem to circle through out the genealogy blogs, I will do as I did before -

If you are a regular (or first time!) reader of this blog – consider yourself tagged!  Just give me a link back & go on to award to others.

Again, thank you, A. Spence!  Will be adding a link to your blog soon!

I was contacted by Christian Richtscheid from itsourtree who asked me to provide a link to all of you out there. Christian says, “I’d like to present our social networking website (and the fastest-growing social network in Europe) to you and recommend it for a review or an article on your site.” So I visited the site to see what it was all about. It’s free to register and similar to other “family building” social network sites. I clicked on “Help” to see what their privacy and security policy was.  On the question of “Is my family tree visible to all other users?” They responded, “No! Your family tree and the profiles it contains are private. Only you and the relatives you have invited can see the tree.  Furthermore, you can decide upon the level of visibility of your own profile.” 

As always when you are entering private information over the internet, I urge you to be cautious, however, please go look at the site and see if it is something you would like to use.  There are many help topics on the issue of privacy and security so please (just like a contract) – read everything before deciding on using. 

They also have a blog that you can go read to discover more information – itsourtree blog.

If anyone decides to go for it, please let me know what your experience was like and how you would rate the web site.  Or write a post and send me a link.

As a 40 something mother of four adult children and Nana to three grandsons, I’ve found that as I get older priorities change and the legacy I leave for my descendents is as important as that which I’ve inherited from my ancestors.  Writing has always been cathartic for me – enabling me to share emotions, thoughts, goals, and stories with anyone or no one.  By posting articles on this genealogy blog as well as listing information on my genealogy web site, I hope to not only leave documented information for those who come after me, but to bring together distant family members also searching for each other.

Brightest Article: The Case of Chase. A culmination of several years of research that when published, this article brought me in touch with family members I didn’t know existed.

Breeziest Article: Unusual Photos. This post shows how wacky my family can be – both past and present!

Most Beautiful Article: On The Spot Education (post for the 48th Carnival of Genealogy). A loving tribute to my mother.

I do my best to write consistently so my little place here in the blogosphere doesn’t become stagnant or boring.  Generally, I try to share my research techniques, the information I have been able to find, and make it provocative enough for you to want to read more.  Those who leave comments are generally sure to receive a visit from me and a shout out or a link to their site.  I have much to offer on my blog, so please stop by often!
