Genealogy In Action

RESEMBLE ANYONE YOU KNOW?

Most women will appreciate the many problems that arise while shopping for clothes. Men wonder why we take so long to shop, yet have no idea what we have to go through to look and feel our best.

THE HUMBLE LETTER

Generations from now, letter writing will become obsolete. This saddens me, as I look over the many letters sent to me by various extended family members from all over the world; rural routed up until 1998.

MURDER IN THE FAMILY?

Most of us will find in our genealogical journey, a string of law-abiding ancestors that worked as farmers, labourer and such. We might even find the occasional death by a disease such as Tuberculosis or Diphtheria or accident.

TRIPS TO GENEALOGY PARADISE

This past year I have made several weekend trips in order that my daughter can attend various Ringette tournaments throughout Ontario.

LOST IN LINE & THE INTERNET

Last week I attended the funeral of Hub Fedeli, a long time family friend of my husband’s family.

THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING NAMES

My ancestors call out to me to find them one by one and sometimes the demand to find more then one name can be daunting, especially if that ancestor is a woman.

Good Old Standby

How does one even begin researching their family History? I recommend that you start with yourself and work backwards; you might be thinking at this point why? Well if you start with yourself first, you will have a less likely chance of getting lost

WHERE DO I BELONG

Oh where oh where do I belong? My arms are short and my legs are long. Eyes of hazel and hair turning grey, I search for my ancestors where they lay. Some show up two by two, while others go missing and make me blue.

SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING?

Looking for anything when you are not sure where to look can be very frustrating.
