It’s been a Long time

Long time no post. I have missed writing to you all. 2020 was an eventful year to say the least. Besides living through a pandemic, our family re-located from New York to Arkansas. We lived in a rental from October 2020 until May 2021 when we moved into our forever home. So Genealogy was onContinue reading “It’s been a Long time”

52 Ancestors – Week 48 – Thief

Bass was born 24 June 1886 in Warsaw, Duplin County, North Carolina. The son of John William Rufus Bass and Emma Faison Best Bass. The onlyContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 48 – Thief”

52 Ancestors – Week 15 – DNA

I will admit that I am not a real sciencey person. Most of it goes right over my head. In school science bored the tears out of me. The only science I could somewhat handle was psychology which is why 90% of the science in college was different psych classes with the exception of biologyContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 15 – DNA”

52 Ancestors – Week 9 – At the Courthouse

For me this prompt was tough. I haven’t been to a courthouse or a town hall in ages, that isn’t saying that I haven’t found legal documents anywhere. Right now I have a super long list of things I would like to find at a courthouse and I even have plans to visit the Surrogate’sContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 9 – At the Courthouse”

52 Ancestors – Week 6 – Surprise

I have been mulling the topic of this post for a few days.

Decoding those leaves…

  We all know about those shaky leaves on ancestry. See these leaves here they sit for a long time. These in particular because they deal with Irish Ancestry. I you look you will see a lot of Peter, Marys and Bridgets. They give me a headache after a while. Decoding a leaf for meContinue reading “Decoding those leaves…”

52 Ancestors – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Yes I am still 2 weeks behind but that is okay. I gave this one a lot of thought and there were so many people I wanted to eat with. Sarah Larkin Beardsley – I would love to know her thoughts on Medical School in the 1880s. My Grandpa Tony – What was like likeContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?”

52 Ancestors – Favorite Photo

Week 2 of 52 Ancestors is Favorite Photo. This was a tough one for me because I don’t have a lot of old family photos. Also photos take such a huge part in my life as a former scrapbooker. I would still scrapbook if I had more time. Priorities. As I thought of a photoContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Favorite Photo”
