a great NEW family history success story (not my own)


Happy Sunday!  As many of you may know, I adore doing family history research.  I also adore listening to genealogy success stories.  So here’s one for you: The two elderly sisters above were separated at birth in England and then reunited 78 years later.  Isn’t that great!  You can listen to the story HERE.  Their story goes from the 2 minute mark to the 4 minute mark into this program…(just a tip, so you don’t have to listen to all the other business :o)

And here’s a family history quote to ponder today:

“If you don’t know history, you don’t know anything. 

You’re a leaf that doesn’t know it’s part of a tree.”

–Michael Crichton, Timeline, Knopf

Have a great day!  Do something NEW!




a NEW photo of my week #54 and some great advice


I took this photo of these two sisters so quickly that I’m kind of shocked it was even in focus!  I just thought they were SO cute, but I get SO nervous taking pics of strangers…especially children with their parents close by …(cuz I didn’t ask permission or anything…ya know?)…sketchy-scary! So I was trying to hurry and capture this image while their Mom had her head turned. (I think she saw me though)…Whew!  I’m so glad she didn’t confront me and tear my camera off my neck and throw it into the pond!  :o) Haha!

Anyway…moving onward…please enjoy some great advice from a great lady:


Happy Sunday!  Have a great Sabbath and do or learn something NEW!
