My thoughts on many things, especially family history and the search for my roots.

Summer is here again!!

WOW! I feel like I've been in a time warp! I feel like the school year had just started and now it's over already. I've been off school for a couple of weeks now and have been trying to get back to my genealogy and other hobbbies.

I have finally been able to make my application to become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution or DAR for short. I have documented my fathers family all the way back to the beginning of the United States. Since today is Flag Day I just wanted to take to opportunity to mention all the members of my family that have served in the military for our country in defense of that flag. Take a visit to my family web site at Rootsweb to see the information about them. Here's a link:

During the time I was documenting the patriot that I am using to enter the DAR I was able to find three other direct ancestors that were also in the Revolution. I've been able to do that thanks to the kindness and generosity of other people researching the same family. So I'm also publicly thanking them now as well.

Well, I need to get back to my cleaning. As you can tell from my previous posts it is a never-ending job. Today I'm cleaning up my computer files. I have a tendency to create MANY documents and JPEG files but never take the time to file them correctly so I can locate them again. I am taking several hours out of my day to fix that mistake. Hopefully I can become more organized. HA! Happy Flag Day! See ya!
