I "Heart Your Blog" Award

Much thanks must go out to Becky at Kinexxions for taking the time to read my blog and then nominate me for the I "Heart Your Blog" award! I started my blog all because I enrolled in a Library Web 2.0 class at my job in January, 2008. Creating a blog was a requirement of the class and because I am "addicted" to genealogy, that's what my blog is all about. So, I am still relatively new to blogging and to be nominated for this award is truly an honor. I too have many Hoosier relatives, some lived in Claypool, Kosciusko County, Indiana, so thank you Becky!
I was so happy to see that so many of the blogs that I follow have been nominated for this award. However, this forced me to go where I haven't been too often....visiting more genealogy blogs...some I have visited a number or times and some are new to me.
In the very near future, I will be nominating seven more blogs (per the rules!) and will link them to my blog.

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Genealogy Pox, author unknown


SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places. Patient has a blank expressions, sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, except feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses.
Has a compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn't leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote desolate country areas. Makes secret night calls and hides phone bills from spouse. Mumbles to self. Has strange, faraway look in eyes.


TREATMENT: Medication is useless. This disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he/she can be alone.

REMARKS: The unusual nature of this disease is that the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
