The 63rd Carnival of Genealogy (New Year’s Resolutions) is posted at Creative Gene. Once again, Jasia outdid herself with this one! And for all of the genea-bloggers whose resolutions were to “host a carnival” or show some kindness to other bloggers – Jasia is looking for hosts for this year to help take some of the work off her back.

I urge you to go visit each of these blogs to read their New Year’s Resolutions and add a comment or two!

A New Award!

Jessica, at Jessica’s Genejournal has awarded me with the Proximidade Award.  This award is for “These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time, and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming! These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends! They are not interested in prizes or self -aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

This award has been going around for a few days now so I’m not sure I’ll be able to award it to eight others who have not already been given this award – but I’ll try!

So here it goes.  I’m awarding these eight folks:

  1. A. Spence of Spence-Lowry Family History
  2. Janice Tracy of Attala County Memories
  3. Denise Olson of Family Matters
  4. Becky Jamison of Grace and Glory
  5. Amy Coffin of We Tree
  6. Ruth Stephens of Bluebonnet Country Genealogy
  7. Chery Kinnick of Nordic Blue
  8. Lori Thornton of Smoky Mountain Family Historian

Thank you, Jessica, for this award!

Laura at Life At The Home20 awarded me with the Best Friends Forever Award! I am both excited and having anxiety that I won’t award this right! The rules for passing this on are:
1. Only five people are allowed to receive the award.
2. Four of them must be followers of your blog.
3. One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

So I’m passing this on to:
1. Jeanna at Roots Reading
2. Jessica at Jessica’s Genejournal
3. Harold at Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog
4. Jasia at Creative Gene
5. Diane at CanadaGenealogy, or ‘Jane’s Your Aunt’

I know several of them have left me comments on my blog and are fellow Genea-Bloggers on Facebook. I’ve read all of these blogs and follow on a daily basis. I urge you to go check them out!

Laura, Thanks for the Award!

I’ve finally been able to catch up (somewhat!) on genealogy blogs since I’ve been gone.  Imagine my surprise and delight to see that my post Traditions was given a nod by Randy Seaver in his Best of Genea-Blogs July 13-19, 2008! Thank you, Randy! And thanks to everyone who clicked on my post from Randy’s site! Please let me know if you read my post on “Traditions”. Jasia, at Creative Gene left a comment that she had thought about using that Theme for a future Carnival of Genealogy. What do you think? I think it’s a great idea!

Thanks to Randy Seavers’ Genea-Musings Blog, I found out that the current “Everton’s Genealogical Helper” Online Edition is FREE for download (this month only!). You can go to Everton Publisher’s Genealogy Blog for the link. 

While I was scanning the online edition, I came across a link (yes, the links within the online edition actually link to a website) for Jackson County, Missouri records.  If you go to  https://records.co.jackson.mo.us/localization/menu.asp    and click the “Acknowledge Disclaimer” link at the bottom and proceed.  You can look up Marriage Records, Official Public Records and Uniform Commercial Codes.  I found the Power of Attorney of my great-great-aunt’s grandson and marriage records for more of the Given family that I am trying to locate. 

Since that gave me a little taste of gleaming information from public records, I thought I’d do some Googling to see what else was out there.  Unfortunately, my time is short right now so I didn’t find a lot of sites, but I did find a site called Your Missouri Courts which looks as if it encompasses all counties in Missouri and the courts therein.  I located some wills and divorce information.

Hope those sites help someone!

State Agency Databases website has a listing of all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. If you click on any of the states, it will take you to the page of Databases for that state. Example: from the Kansas link, I scrolled through the list until I came upon listings under the Kansas State Historical Society. One of them was for Death Notices of Members of Fraternal Orders. There I found a death date I had been looking for. Some of the states have court case searches or land records searchs. This website probably won’t have everything you want to search for, but it is another place to look for information.

I told you I’d give you tips on finding little known websites offering genealogy information!  Harold at http://midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com offers Midwestern Genealogy tips and sources.  Today his post is about Digitized Newspapers in Champaign County, Illinois.  If you are researching in that area, please go take a look at Harold’s post.

Once again, I thank all of you who are reading this blog – especially those who leave comments and leave a link to your genealogy site or blog.
