Today will be cloudy with a 70% chance of flurries this morning. The temp will remain steady near -2 (28f). Tonight it will clear with an overnight low of -11 (12f).
The wife is really into geneaolgy. She has been putting together a book on the computer that has grown to nearly 200 mb in size. She has her family to the late 1600s on both her mothers and fathers side. She has found photos from the late 1800s and has made me scan them for her book. She has my family on my mothers side into the 1500s. She has spent 100s of hours on her book if not 1000s.
Last night she came home fom work and has decided to change the format of her research and use a commercialy availible program. What can you say. LOL

Not being brought up here she would have little knowledge of the local characters I mentioned. I know little about the TITUS side other than from Seal Cove. Can be a consuming project to say the least.

Donna's family accomplished and interesting with some of the history recorded. The narrative is the part that is being lost as the older generation moves off. Donna has great uncles at 95plus with all things going for them, interesting to talk to say the least.

Good Morning Rob
She does have narritve. In her research she not only wanted names but what they did for a living, if they had land grants and pictures of where they lived. She even checked archived court records if her search found something leading that way

Interesting project, does she have narrative from this part of the world? Lots of history on both sides, and characters both past and present. If all the generations produced like the last couple would need a computer just to hold them all.

WOW!! That's alot of work to have to do over again.Hopefully she can 'cut and paste' most of the info she has into the new program.It's lots of fun researching the trees...my mother's and father's sides have been done.Some interesting characters in them for sure.A book was just recently written and published about one of my ancestors who was caught up in the Lutheran heretic persecutions and burned at the stake in 1640.She didn't burn!!There's more about the book here.

We hit 16 above here today.Trees are budding.I noticed my rose bush has new growth and leaves...if it stays like this we'll have roses in Feb LOL.

Have a good day and weekend,Tony.
