I am new to the blogging community but, as my family tree has grown, I decided that this is the best way to share my findings and make new connections.
I have been interested in genealogy in about 30 years and have worked on it off and on during that time.

It's been a week...

Well, I haven't posted here in a week because of illness in the house. Hubby and I have been sick and I have not been up to doing anything. But feeling better now and hope to get back into research mode.
Tomorrow is genealogy day; first a local group of friends get together to talk research, etc. Then on to the FRECOGS meeting in Frederick, MD.

Society Saturday

I am a member of the DAR, thanks to my paternal grandmother. She worked very hard in the early 1970's to become a member and I was then able to join using her research. I am working on another ancestor through my mother's line, too.
I am also a member of the DUV-CW and was able to make that connection on my own. It was quite satisfying to be able to discover information that our family had not known before.
Currently I am working on an application to the Mayflower Society.

Funeral Card Friday

I have pictures of several old funeral cards. The originals were my grandmother's and now, I believe my mother has them.

Question to Bloggers

Since I am new to this, I have been surfing around and looking at many other blogs. I see lots of interesting links, icons and widgets and am wondering how those work and where you find them! Thank you for any help you can offer.
