Welcome!

Welcome!
I realized quickly, with the lack of records for my family, that I’d really have to “think outside the box”. I LOVE to interview people, and ask about "the older days" in Mecklenburg. I also study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try help preserve some of those memories people share with me. Feel free to sign my guestbook stating surnames you are looking for, who you're related to etc. Always a work in progress, a work that I truly love!

A friend of mine writes a food blog. I test her recipes. I have food allergies, she does all allergy friendly recipes. Sometimes it is hard for me to visualize things though. Her family talked her into doing video clips on her blog. I found them immensely helpful. I have had several friends tell me I too should post some videos about my work in digitizing and research. I will try to brave it like my friend. A few years ago (Sep 2009) I did a test and made this video clip with just a webcam on my computer. A few people said I should post it on my blog. I will try to start a video page. Not sure what all video clips I can get. Maybe I can get some video clips of my grandparents telling old stories, or video clips of finding things? So here starts an experiment.
