Family Affair

Welcome

This site was created to chronicle and share my genealogy research. It is also a tool for others that are searching for their family members and to see if there is any connection to my family. This is a project that is going to take years to complete. It has been a labor of love, a great deal of fun and quite stimulating.

If you are interested in the various surnames, you can start with the ones across the top of this page or you can look for them in the categories section to the right.

Please leave comments on any of the posts/articles that you read or email me using the form on the right. I do want your feedback, I will try to answer any question, and I desire your interaction. Love to know how to improve this site to better serve you,

Help Me Continue This Research and Keep the Family Tree Online

Who Do You Think You Are? Well Who?

Posted by Tonya Keitt Kalule

Who Do You Think You Are?: The Essential Guide to Tracing Your Family History is a book that I picked up when I attended my first meeting at the Southern California Genealogy Society Library.  We just gathered talked and had lunch together. I thought it would be a good way to get to know the people that are involved with this organization.  We were graced with the vast knowledge of an archivist and genealogy specialist from the local branch of the National Archives.  Kerry recommended a few resource must-haves and made me painfully aware that I have not even scratched the surface with my research, in all that I have done. So I am more than ready to move on to the next phase of this.
 I was fortunate enough to get an autograph copy of the book, Who Do You Think You Are?: The Essential Guide to Tracing Your Family History.  The Author Megan Smolenyak is chief family historian and spokesperson for
Ancestry.com
.
She is also a pretty engaging writer.

I am sure many have seen the show with the same name as the book on NBC. It has a great deal of people intrigued and getting serious about finding the history of their own families.  This is something that all families should start.  If you are not the one to start gathering and researching, then help the one that is.  We all know how quickly time goes by, so take time and just write down what you know, and put it in a safe place, so it could be found by another family member.
