Two Cool Things

Just a quick post today so I can go care for my family that has been blighted by some sort of zombie producing virus. They've asked for brains for dinner. Send help.

Cool Thing the First:

On Wednesday we got the youth from our church signed up to start doing research on their family histories. I promised to come to each families home with cookies to get them started on learning to research and fill in those family trees. that was really cool in itself, but what was even cooler was yesterday when I was talking to the Young Men's president after a church function where someone mentioned a relative. He had pulled up Family Search on his tablet and was super excited to tell me about this grandmother who had named one of her children Jesse James. Apparently she had danced with the notorious outlaw several times. Who said family history isn't cool?

Cool Thing the Second:

Now that I'm writing my own genealogy blog, I need to learn how to pimp this thing, yo. DearMyrtle is offering a webinar on Monday February 20th (yes, tomorrow) on using Google Reader to follow blogs and kee track of them. You can sign up here.

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and left a comment. I really appreciate it. I hope you'll keep coming by!


  1. The best way is to utilize the geneabloggers site for subject ideas; then peruse all the different genealogy blogs to stimulate your creative brain :-)
    Most important: Have fun!

    1. Ha! My poor little brain can use all of the stimulation it can get. This has been a fun experience so far. I'll be keeping it up!
