Is it just me, or are the weeks just flying by? I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing much, but I’ve been busy working on preparing for the next year of homeschooling. I will be teaching kids who are 12, 9, 7, and 5 – and trying to keep my 3 yr old busy and out from under our feet. The key to success is being prepared and organized, but this of course takes time.
Here are some of my favorite finds from this week:
- Head over to AnceStories this Sunday for June’s Scanfest. I really should join in, but we’re usually busy doing family stuff on Sundays, so I don’t have time to sit down at the computer for long. I have a stack full of mostly documents that I need to digitize. I will eventually get around to it. Maybe when the kids are grown.
- I always find it so interesting to hear how people from different places pronounce things differently. Valeria over at Begin with “Craft” had a great post entitled “I Can’t Understand You!” I miss the southern accents in Savannah….
- Heather Kuhn Roelker, over at Leaves for Trees, had a great idea about starting a Geneablogger database - so we can easily find blogging cousins. I like it!
- Lisa Alzo, the Accidental Genealogist, is giving a free webinar hosted by Legacy called “Ready, Set, Write! Share Your Family’s Story”. I’ve signed up! I am very interested in putting all of these names and dates into a story someday.
- I had a very simple DNA test done on my brother about 3 years ago (it was free with an Ancestry membership). I have been thinking more and more that I would like to do one myself though – and another more in-depth one on my brother. I was interested to read Ginger’s post about her DNA experience so far.
