I love a good pun and I am not ashamed. Especially one involving my favorite season of Fall! This time of year is always a special one for me. The changing leaves, cooler temperatures, family events and alllllll the pumpkins, make me feel so grateful and nostalgic. I have also noticed the productivity in my own family research increases during this time. Perhaps it’s all the positive vibes I am feeling, or maybe the ancestors are calling?Continue reading “Fall into Family History with VGA’s Virtual Genealogical Conference!”
I am exited to announce the winner of my RootsTech 2019 giveaway is Jennifer Henrickson!
October 2018 has been the busiest Family History Month yet! I was able to giveaway a DNA kit, and attend the Arkansas Genealogical Society Fall Seminar and meet speaker, CeCe Moore of DNA Detectives! I have also just about completed a lineage application for the Mayflower Society and two other DAR supplement applications. Throw in some great pumpkin patch outings and it has been a wonderful month!
October is not only the best month of the year (at least in my opinion), it is even more special because it is Family History Month!
It’s no secret that I adore my home state of Arkansas. In addition to the wonderful people, there is so much great history! As a 7th generation Arkansan on both my mother and father’s sides, I am particularly proud of my deep roots in the state and try to research there every chance I get. This is why I am very excited to highlight the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies!
National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double helix in 1953. This year marks the 15th Anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project and is a day that many in the genealogy community look forward to. The DNA testing companies generally offer great discounts during the week, and it is a great opportunity to buy your first DNA test, or to stock up on kits to test family members.
This post is a bit overdue. Okay, way overdue. Because life, bronchitis, a full time job and young kids sometimes get in the way of best laid plans! To be honest, I have also been quite intimidated thinking about all the things I need and want to include in this post!
