Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Who's to Blame?

It is Saturday night and Randy Seaver has put up our mission. Join in if you like and link up over at Randy's site http://www.geneamusings.com/2010/10/saturday-night-genealogy-fun-whos-to.html

Your mission, should you decide to accept it is to
:1) Read Brenda Joyce Jerome's post Who or What Do You Blame? on the Western Kentucky Genealogy blog. She asks these questions:* Can you identify person or event that started you on this search for family information? *
Did you pick up researching where a relative had left off? *
Did your interest stem from your child's school project on genealogy? *
If you have been researching many years, it may be hard to pinpoint one reason for this journey
.2) Write your responses on your own blog, in a comment to this blog post, or in a note or comment on Facebook.

1. My interest first started with my Aunt Alice ( Dad's twin sister) visiting us and showing all her charts of relatives. I remember a white window shade and she opened it and had written on it a family tree. Clever idea since they traveled with a motor home and she could easily roll this up. She also shared with us a book on one line. It was full of information and wonderful old pictures
Years later a distant relative wrote a book on my mother's side and my family bought one book to share between the three siblings. I would look at this for hours and all the old family pictures.

I have picked up where these books leave off with the other family lines. The Internet, http://www.ancestry.com/ and even my own blog have helped with my search. Because of this blog a very distant cousin has contacted me and mailed me the information his father gathered over a three year period before he passed away. This was on a line that I had only to my great great grandfather. I now have information and research from Donald Lines Jacobus who was one of America's greatest genealogists linking this line to the Mayflower.

My goal and prayer is to pass this information and love for the hunt of family and the wonderful history behind them to my children and grandchildren and their children.

Thanks for stopping by and take a moment and hop over to Randy's and read other's postings. Grace

Treasure Chest Thursday ... Old Family Photos

Treasure Chest Thursday - Old Family Photos

The New England Historic Genealogical Society's weekly newsletter includes a survey. This weeks question was regarding how many generations back (starting with parents) do you have photographs, portraits, or other visual images of at least one person in your direct line?

My answer is 3nd great-grandparents. This is one of those things that I never really thought much about but sure am glad I took the time to day to gather this information.

Like most of you, I have pictures of both of my parents and all four of my grandparents.

I also have pictures of all of my 8 great-grandparents and 11 of my 16 gg grandparents and 8 of my 32 great great great grandparents

There are people with more photos but this seems like it might be better than average numbers.

Almost Wordless Wednesday Daddy Serenading Mama

Wordless Wednesday... Almost never can be totally quiet.
Here is an adorable picture of my parents. This would be mid 1940's somewhere in Texas. Probably in the San Antonio area where they went to Bible College.
Dad ( Arthur Zion ) is singing and playing his guitar for Mama ( Muriel Day Zion).
I think they are adorable. This would be early in their marriage. Before us kids or mama getting Polio.
Thanks for stopping by... Hope that you will check out some of my other Wordless Wednesday postings. Grace
Here are a few to start with...
