family search

I'm so excited! When Jody (Liz's mom) was here she told me about helping with indexing census records. I have wanted to do it since they first asked us to help but never jumped in. Jody gave me courage to try and I'm ashamed I've waited this long! It's so easy and fun - It's a much better use of my time than TV. I'm committed to do one page a day which takes only about 15 minutes. It really connects you with the past and is so fun. You should give it a try. Go to and click on the little icon that says "index records" on the left side under the family search logo and sign up.

I'm getting the genealogy bug. All my life I heard my great grandmother, grandmother and mother talk about genealogy. I saw tons of pictures and pedigree charts. When I was in the temple the other day I realized - I'm the next in line to keep things going. With the current technology I can do things my crazy for genealogy ancestors could not even imagine. I think this means I'm getting old, I say embrace the season you're in!!
