Welcome!

Welcome!
I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

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.
