Valentine's Day Podcast

Hi Everyone!

Today on my podcast, since it is Valentine's Day, we spent some time talking about love and marriage. I shared a couple of stories from my own genealogy, highlighting the kinds of things we can learn as we research our families. One story stems from a picture of James Orson and Minnie Mae (Harper) Brownell taken on their wedding day. It's so fun to know that Minnie was standing on a box! You can read more about them HERE.

This week, February 13th through the 19th, MyHeritage is offering the opportunity to search marriage records FREE! Registration may be required, but there is no charge. Take a look. You never know what you might discover. You should be able to get to their collection HERE

Happy Searching!

What About Cemetery Websites?

There can be great value in locating our relatives, or relatives of our relatives, in the various cemetery sites available to us. One of the most popular sites is Find a Grave. Here is a little info to get you started.

Find a Grave's mission is to help people from all over the world work together to find, record and present final disposition information as a virtual cemetery experience.” (Find a Grave)

Powered by volunteers, Find a Grave was Initially created in 1995 by Jim Tipton who liked to locate graves of famous people. It has grown to include people from all walks of life and is an amazing source of information about some of them. Find a Grave became a subsidiary of Ancestry® in 2013. A quick look at the collections available through Ancestry® yields a total of nearly 220 million memorials! This site is free, easy to use, offers iOS and Android apps, memorial search, cemetery search, and other options. It is absolutely worth becoming familiar with Find a Grave. You never know what you might find to assist you in furthering the information about your family.
