1. [WRITING] Revision can be fun... [1]
Hello, list! I haven't seen any posts over the last few weeks, so I thought I'd write and shake things up a little. We had some major problems with our phone line for about six weeks, and couldn't get online at home. Boy, was THAT an experience! I had been spending my "free" time doing online family research, which came to a screaming halt. I'm still not back to it. That's okay, because I knew that someday I'd have to go through my autobio files and start revising again. And that's exactly what
2. lurking on the list [1]
I've been lurking on the list, in between my lecture travels since I subscribed. I'm limiting my travels this year... I will still appear at those places that we are obligated to attend. Otherwise, my daughter will be doing most of the traveling. As for me I will be staying closer to home for a while as I need to concentrate on the preservation of old records and photographs in my fathers vast collection pertaining to Bergen County New Jersey and the Village of Ridgewood in particular. Since my fath
3. RE: [WRITING] lurking on the list [1]
Laurie, Whew! I got tired just reading about the task you have at hand! I hope you feel privileged, as well as overwhelmed, by the mounds of material you have. My family passed down virtually NOTHING in the way of documents, photos, etc. Being blessed/cursed (it is both) with a strong sense of family feeling, and having an extended family that isn't at all close, I took it upon myself to try and leave something of myself behind. Thus my autobiography -- which, as far as I know, my children haven'

June, Yes, it would be nice if lots and lots of people start posting. I am always open to new ideas, even though I'm pleased with the methods I'm using now.

7. Re: [Writing Your Life Story] New to list [1]
June, I think we are all new to this list....I just saw it last week in the RootsWeb Review... I've been a family historian for 40 years now (since childhood), and am currently working on my autobiography (for the umpteenth time). I have plenty of ideas! Family history is a different subject altogether. Are you researching genealogy, or just gathering family stories? Do you have a computer genealogy program like PAF, Family Tree Maker, Legacy, The Master Genealogist, etc.? I have read a number

Hello Alma Yes, I guess it is a new list, so I hope quite a few people join it as many want to write their histories, but don't know how to start.

There is a history behind my name. Barbara is my mother's name, and Sue is the name of her father's wife. She didn't like her stepfather, but liked her blood father, so when I came along, she took those two names. I go by my middle name, and always have, as I imagine that was done to avoid confusions with two Barbara's in the house. I think it is helpful in figuring out related people in genealogy, too. I am curious as to why one of my relatives, whose name was Clotille Delafield Blankman, had a broth
19. [WRITING] Where Did You Get That Name? [1]
It has been a long time since I have posted. When my cousin was asked "Were you named for anyone?" She replied "Yes, My Mother's sister, Aunt Agnes and her brother Joe. Mother was going to name me Agnes Marie, but when I was born on Uncle Joseph's birthday, I became Agnes Josephine. It got me to thinking about who named me. I started with the story that my mother told me. The attached is the result of a little research. There is Family History in every name. Comments and suggestions requested

When I was a kid, the ads for Easter clothes showed fashionable ladies in white cotton gloves with their new dresses. At my first prom, all the girls wore white elbow-length gloves. I haven't seen anyone in gloves unless it was to keep warm or swing a golf club in 40 years!

I remember wearing gloves and hats and having matching purses and shoes. Things are verry different now- where I live, people go to weddings in pants and occasionaly I have seen blue jeans. No one seems to get dressed up like I am used to, so I do. I have a pair of gloves, but I havn't worn them in ages.

25. Re: [Writing Your Life Story] inspiring the family... [1]
Hello List, I have been interested in genealogy since before I knew what the word meant. My grandmother spoke of her parents coming to America from Germany. Grandma was the 8th of 10 children. She learned to speak English when she entered the first grade. Her father was a businessman and I'm told he was on the school board in the community. However, German was the only language spoken in the home. Great grandma wrote and spoke excellent English as well. Her grammar could be appreciated by any English
