You may want to.......Document your Thanksgiving........

You may want to document your Thanksgiving.  No idea who will or won't be with us in the next year.

It is the season to think of others, yes it is.  So will you remember each guest with a passing comment of will you take some pictures or maybe write a poem?

Maybe you will write a synopsis of your day or the week leading up to Thanksgiving.  It surely will bring many thoughts to the forefront.

How did you decide what vegetable to have, what type of dinner roll? Do you do Ham and Turkey for those not able to eat turkey? Or do you do a roast or goose?

You see there were many choices you made whether it was consciously or not.  Do you do mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, yams or sweet potatoes?

In doing all this are you leaving a trail so that your grandchildren can go back and remember what they were not sure of what they did?

Home made Cranberry sauce or store bought with or with out whole cranberries. Or did you plan a Cranberry salad made as a jello dish?

Remember in the spring we discussed using a plain table cloth and have all the guests sign it in memory of the year and it gets past down to a younger family member for future memories?

So many ideas so few time.  I hope you at least do some of this for your future generations.

Native American Ancestry, ??? Fold 3 Has Free

Having come in from brunch and was able to read this. Hope it excites you as much as it does me.

Free Access to the Native American Collection

Do you have Native American ancestry? Or are you interested in Native American history? Then explore Fold3's Native American Collection for free November 1-15.
Have you found an ancestor in Fold3's Native American collection? Tell us about it! Or get started exploring the Native American Collection here.

It has a list of six major sources to look at.

Having one line  proven and more to go.  MTDNA proves lineage on Grandma Foulk Jones Norris side.  

We have proven on Jones side very early.  But want to see more documentation.

Talking to Family Tree dna people.  It is hard to go back earlier for one time incidents.

When the family's children marry back into the tribe then it solidifies the line better, one of the Jones or maybe two of the Jones daughters did this. Hurray, and Thanks Cousins.

This is truly a blessing to be able to see what they have at Fold 3.
