I posted a letter I received from Spark People concerning their improvements to our Spark Pages along with a link where you can tell them what you think. But in case you just jumped to the chat thread, here is the link

Thanks, Sandy.

This could be about anything. My mother at one time was reading all day and also at night time. She decided she needed to get off the couch and do something else after realizing she was spending so much time reading.

Some good advice.

I have been getting some kid's books on genealogy and picked up another one yesterday at my library.

Take care.

That is one thing I miss about going to the library and wondering around looking for books, microfiche then finding an open reader that worked. besides the people you met

I just found this article & at first I thought it was a silly title, but the title.....Is Genealogy Dangerous to Your Health?..... is what caught my attention. It is a very serious article with some great SP-sounding advice.

Maybe I just notice it more, but to appears genealogy has become popular. Just so many people want to do it the quick and easy way and think your nuts when you tell them they should research things, but the work is done I just have to down load it.

Hello all,

I have not been on this team much lately but we are discussing genealogy a lot on the Over 70 team.
I have been working at it again and finding information.

The grave yards are normally grass and kept mowed. Since the island was pretty much destroyed and they are rebuilding, old grave yards are way down on the list. I guess the wildflowers moved in. By state law you can only mow fields of wild flowers during certain seasons. These aren't blue bonnets or an endangered one, but seeing them conpleatly cover the grave yard was something.

Finally found my Welsh, but still no Irish. I have about 3 months left of my paid membership on Ancestry.com to find them, but so many branches!!!

Is that weird to let the flowers grow? I thought all grave yards were mowed, but guess each one has it's own rules.

I dove past an old grave yard that isn't mowed as often as it should now it is on a list not to be mowed till later in the year. The grave yard was a sea of yellow wild flowers. There were just a few grave stones sticking out go the sea. I really wish I could have gotten a picture for you. It was so so pretty. The area the grave yard is in is trying to get the wild flowers reestablished and for them to have taken over the grave yard, means the grave yard can't be mowed till after the flowers bloom. Just no one is going to be able to do any research there this time of year.

I have the two pantries, but it's not like it sounds. They are very narrow & one is in the hall outside the back door to my apartment. Better than none.

I'd like to have a pantry too. Ok, maybe a bigger kitchen too. Oh wait, maybe a little bigger house.

My kitchen is very small (8x13) and no dining room. I've got one upper cabinet and one corner cabinet for dishes. Cabinet above the sink for baking and spices, knives, etc. One bottom cabinet for pots and pans. Under the sink. And then an upper cabinet that is so small it is useless. Along with three small drawers that the utensils don't fit in. Previous owners cut a small cabinet in the hallway between studs which has misc bathroom and kitchen stuff and towels. No hall or bathroom closet. Tiny cut out in bathroom wall for stuff. My food sits on the stairs going to the attic bedroom.

One day I'll move. But we said that when we moved in 30 years ago too.

I just wish I had one pantry. I have said if I ever move i want a butler kitchen for a pantry. Having canned goos on the shelves in the dining room is getting old.

I'm really tired tonight, but it's the good kind of tired. The kind that happens when you accomplish something. I have two pantries - one has grocery products & the other has cleaning supplies, medical supplies, etc. For a long time I've wanted to switch them, but just kept putting it off because I knew how much work it would be & what a mess it would make while I was doing it. Yesterday I took all of the cleaning supplies, etc. out of the one pantry & started recovering the shelves. Today I finished covering the shelves & moved all the food products. That one is finished & looks good. The other one is now empty & ready for me to clean & then put all the "stuff" on the shelves. That's my project for tomorrow. I'll be glad when both of them are finished. I like it better already.m Got lots of steps in too, going back & forth moving the stuff.

Ancestry is adjusting the formula they use, so that will add more people to your DNA matches. You may lose some distant matches.

Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) also has their DNA tests on sale for $79.00. I will say that I really recommend that you test with Ancestry & then transfer the results to FTDNA for $39 to get matches there also.

Then I recommend uploading your DNA results to Gedmatch (free) for even more matches.

For anyone interested in having their DNA tested, Ancestry has the test on sale for $79 until Tuesday. That is 20% off the regular price.

They could be showing the wrong ancestors on their tree. You would still be DNA related no matter who they show in their tree. DNA is based on your inherited genes, not what you write or type as a family member. Example -

My cousin & are are related through our mothers, who were sisters. We happen to work together on our trees, so they show the same ancestors. However, we have another cousin who is the daughter of another sister of our mothers, but she thinks our 4th great grandfather is a different person, so her tree is different from that person back. Our DNA still shows the three of us as first cousins, even though one of the people shows different ancestors on a direct line.

PS: I know the two of us are right because our DNA match goes back a number of generation past the 4th great grandparents, but the other cousin just refuses to discuss it or look at our proof.

So often when I looked at the 5 and 6th generation cousins on the DNA site, their trees were so messed up, i didn't trust they were related at all

Tax season is over and the next one is a couple months away, so I'll try and get caught up with posting

Yeah....he'd be a skeleton for sure.

I've found some records on Family Search trees where they have the parents younger than their child.

You wouldn't think there'd be so many men with the same name marrying women of the same name.

I've found more than one Thomas Galloway marrying a Sarah Ghost Galloway. One is Irish, but not mine....figures, since that is my goal, to find my Irish. . I think they had some similar children names though.

Census records say my Thomas is from Va. Grandma said his dad came from Ireland, but census rec say his dad was from Va.

Still can't decide if I want to post the Monkland Arthur to my record on Family Search and Ancestry tree or not. I can make corrections on Ancestry, but not so much on Family Search since it is a global tree and it will be on others tree info. Hate for someone to blame me for putting him there and be wrong.

Oh my goodness, I have 182 pages on my DNA to star check. I did get all my 4th - 6th cousins but now 5th to 8th. Weird that it doesn't go from 4-6 and include the 5th, but it has 5th- 8th .

Thanks for the information. I find so much confusing information. Sometimes it is an addition thing. I have one ancestor that came on the Mayflower. His wife dies a year later, and then found 3 records that said he was a Captain in the revolutionary war.

I haven't been around for a while, but started back working my family tree. I'm glad I logged in in time to see the post below! Thanks. I think I'll star everyone on my DNA matches.

I'm in a quandry and could use some advise.

I have a 2nd great grandfather: George Arthur, his death cert says dob is 1839, census records say 1839 and somewhere I saw July 19, 1839. Parents on dth cert say John and Barbara (no maiden name)

Family Search with dob as 1836:
George Arthur - Mar 1836
Christening11 Apr 1836,
New Monkland, Lanark, Scotrland
Residence: 1836New Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland


PARENTS: John Arthur & Barbara Russell

How much of Family Search can we trust?

Another record shows
birth: 1839 Scotland
residence: 1910 Steubenville, Ward 2, Jefferson, Ohio, United States
immigration: 1880

I know he didn't immigrate in 1880 as his son in my line was born in US in 1786. All of his kids were born in US. I found somewhere that his immigration was, his arrival 19 July 1858.

I'm so confused what to do, George's parents is one of my brick walls.
I have more on George's wife, Elizabeth Douglas.

You'll find lots of new matches because people upload their results from all three of the major DNA testers - Ancestry, Family Tree and 23&Me.

You can also upload your test results to Family Tree (FTDNA) for $39.00 & they will give you lots more matches.

I did my DNA at Ancestry several years ago. My main reason was to confirm the tree I already had made, which it did. I do use the DNA matches as clues to follow, the same way I use the trees on Ancestry. Clues only, not proven facts until I prove them for myself.

For more matches, you should ypload your results to Gedmatch.com (free).

I had mine done at Ancestry. All the close ones I already knew about. So many of the others had their trees so messed up I didn't trust anything they had

Objects in the mirror will get thinner than they now appear

Ancestry.com had a special. Regular price is $99, but I think it was 20% off. Quick results. And 783 possible cousins that did their DNA test through Ancestry.com

Where did you get your DNA done?

Did all of those 'cousins' have their DNA done as well?

Today the Wii Fit told me I was doing better & would continue to improve with practice. One time I was doing something & not paying attention & my instructor told me I wasn't paying attention. Wonder how much they really know????

It's ironic you post that..I am 90/10 and favor my right leg! My left leg is literally half the size of my right which my right has been carrying the weight for so many years now. My goal is to get to my target weight and (hopefully) have good upper body strength for when they amputate my left leg.

It will take a little while to recover because of my age..but I am healthy otherwise..So I should bounce back quickly enough!

I had back problems and the Dr had me stand with a foot on each scale. The scales should read the same. Nope, I had 75% of my weight on one leg. The Dr told me to do the wii fit balance games and about once a week have them check my weight distribution. That lady kept telling my no one could be that unbalanced. I got to hating that lady, but it worked I'm 51/49 now.

Took me twom days, but I finally have my Wii Fit connected & set up. Tried it out briefly today & it informed me that I don't have really good balance. I knew that, but it was strange hearing it from an electronic fitness program.

I think my Scandanavian bits come from the Viking invasions and their settling into Britain.

I believe absolutely in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
My personal motto is that a day without learning something new or finding something to laugh about or be grateful for is 24 hours wasted.
