5 Steps to Searching Your Family History

Ever had one of your relatives say to you, “Oh, you look so much like your (Uncle, Aunt, Father, Mother, etc) when he/she was your age.”? Ever look at the old family album and wonder about your relative(s) during that period of time? Who are/were these people who you are related to?

Or, how about…

Where did I come from? How did I become who I am? Who are my people? All of these are just a few of the questions I was asking myself just a few years ago. And so I had to begin a search which has become more than just a hobby, it is an obsession. I have discovered that finding out about my family’s history can be both exciting and just a bit scary.

Your family history, or better known as Genealogy, will be unique to you and no one else.

If you have any interest in researching your history you might want to check out my new lens on Squidoo at 5 Steps to Searching Your Family History It can be interesting learning about your history.

National Peanut Butter Day

Whether you like it in your candy, cookies, as a sandwich, as a sauce or straight from the jar, January 24th is your day to celebrate your favorite form of Peanut Butter. Smooth or crunchy, January 24th is National Peanut Butter Day.

I have created this as a lens on Squidoo to celebrate one of America’s favorite foods, peanut butter. If you like or love peanut butter check it out. I have some recipes you may also like to try to satisfy your peanut butter desires.

One of my favorite Authors, Horatio Alger, Jr

I find it interesting that one of the most prolific American authors of the 19th Century is not well known today. Ok, so he wrote over 100 years ago. Have you read any of his stories? I feel that anyone trying to survive in these trying economic times could profit by reading an Horatio Alger story. But, before you decide against the idea why not just take a look at my new lens about Horatio Alger, Jr.

If you find some interest there you can down load one of his stories from Project Gutenberg for free. If you do that please send them a donation as that is how they support themselves.

Merry Christmas to one and all.
