RUN OVER TO - UpFront with NGS, yes click on it.

UpFront with NGS

Click here and read some great tips to help your research.

I am doing mine via birthdays but pick a method and you will be amazed at how much it can help you organize and present your data for your family to enjoy down the road.  It also shares data with cousins that do not live near and would love to learn more about your family.

Just this morning early like 3 am I read an article about a distant cousins child's struggle to graduate school.

Reading the great report given regarding the student we here can so relate.

Genealogy to me is number one way to track down the medical knowledge we should all have for when we raise our family.  Thankfully my Mother felt that way also.  (She lost her baby brother )

 A long short story that he ultimately died a young teen do to injuries as infant that no one had control over.   We need to know if we have lung issues, heart issues, blood issues, mental health issues in our family.

 Why loose some one if it could have been prevented. I thought 23 and Me was right on  to offer medical knowledge with their tests and never understood the reason to stop it.

 O YES-   INSURANCE ;  That was it.  So our lives are not our lives any more,
such a sad shame.

So go to NGS's page for today and read their blog post. #52 stories.

Thanks, let me know if this helps you.

On my personal blog page I have started doing this via birthdays.

I wrote about Dad then my Uncle'(Aunt's Hubby) then  my Aunt (Mom's sis).

I bet you can do this too.

Migration of Humans and lots of data and maps.

Google migration maps.. and you can have fun. 



The talk was given starting in Early World and how people migrated some times slowly and some times more quickly to various regions of the European and Asian communities. Mostly in the Mid Eastern area, Starting at the Aegean Sea, Anatolia, Turks,  moving into the other regions at various times.  The Ceasar's conquering of their world moved things along and created even more interesting turn of events. The Split between the Church into 2 then 3 major church groups created even a greater division. 
Persian then and Persia today plays a major roll in the movement of peoples in the world.  

Sometimes we forget we are (I suspect) in the same throes of life that the 1750's to 1860's of the America we know.  Adjusting to influx of people and adapting and changing and modifying life.







It is generally accepted that the Bantu-speaking peoples originated from West Africa around 4,000 years ago, although there is less consensus on the exact reasons for and course of their expansion. Prior to that time, the southern half of Africa is believed to have been populated by Khoisan speaking people



Map of the world by Eratosthenes, circa 200 B.C.E. In antiquity, the names Ariana (Āryānā) and Persis were used to describe the region where modern-day Iran is found.




Much to learn here.

We are a very old planet in some ways. Humans been around longer than most can fathom.
 We are fighting the adaption worse than some did in the past, and better than others.

Depending how long the person lived in a region, (10,000 years or so)  it brings a tidbit of many nationalities one would not suspect. Exposure was given over and over for us to all be one big melting pot.

Welcome Brothers and Sisters.

Sharing Information on Washington Co. PA.



 This is a link to a lot of information in Washington County, Pa.  

http://www.ourfamilyhistories.com/hsdurbin/washingtonco.html

Many listings of at least 5 cemeteries.

 Listings of Newspapers early.

 Give it a try and  learn more about your ancestors.

Remember Washington Co. was a part of Westmoreland before becoming it's on county.
Remembering also that Greene Co. was a part there of as was Fayette Co. when
Westmoreland Co was the parent county.

Then you have to remember Virginia was part time caretaker of some of this region prior to the 1790's. Many did not recognize PA as parent state because they did not like that states laws verses Virginia's.

Some Great Tips For for Book Researchers.

 

 A site I get information from sent this information recently.   I hope you take the time to go there and learn what they have to say.

Genealogy News & Tips

Did you know that FamilySearch has a free collection of online digitized family history books, journals and other publications? We'll show you how to mine this collection for four key types of family history resources that may hold important genealogy information about your ancestors. Read More...


There are many other topics discussed at various times but I wanted to share about the books.

 I find that books carry so much information and not everything is on the internet.  

 We keep telling you that over and over.  

 Grab a book and read some of the history of the area, the Wills, Deeds, Probate Records.
 Learn what they grew for crops and how the lived.  It fills in some blanks.
