Follow Friday - Elyse's Genealogy Blog

For Follow Friday, I am selecting Elyse Doerflinger's blog at  Elyse writes with knowledge and enthusiasm.  At Elyse's blog you will find research and organization tips, as well as ways to use technology in new ways.

I watched Elyse participate in the Blogger 1 seminar at Jamboree and was very impressed with her knowledge and willingness to share information.  (But then I guess that's true of all genealogists isn't it?)

Elyse's blog has received several coveted genealogy blog awards.  I will keep reading Elyse's blog to better educate myself and watch her grow.  Won't you join me?

Genea-Musings: Some SCGS Jamboree 2010 photos

Here is a link to Randy Seaver's photos from Jamboree 2010.  Read his posts regarding the 3 days of Jamboree to get a feel for the event and you will be packing your bags to go next year.  That is what happened to me!  Last year's participants made it sound like so much fun I decided it was something I needed to do.  Did I have a good time?  I'm already planning for next year!

Treasure Chest Thursday - Renewing Friendships

Treasure Chest items are not always physical, sometimes they are the memories we hold in our minds and hearts. What a treasure! Meeting a cousin I had not not seen for over 50 yrs. Mary Alice Hardie Sjogren and her husband Bill took me to dinner on Sunday evening followed by a car tour of Hollywood. It was great to visit as if the past 50 years had not happened. For me it is pure treasure to seamlessly connect with family after many years.
