The Life From The Roots blog topics have changed several times since I began this blog. In 2009, with my first posts, I wrote only about the family history I had been working on for 20 years. Many ancestors lived in New England so it was easy to visit gravesites and towns where they lived. I shared many photo. Years later, I was into visiting gardens, historical homes, churches, libraries that had genealogical collections, historical societies, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history. I enjoy posting autographs and photos of famous people I met or saw.

My New England roots are in Connecticut and Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire). Other areas include New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.

Please check out the labels on the right side for topics. Below the labels and pageviews is a listing of my top nine posts, according to Google. Four of them pertain to Lowell, MA, three are memorials, one about a surname and one about a discovery I made. These posts change often because they are based on what people are reading.

Bites of News -- Social, Social

As I was about to toss my issue of Smart Computing, (February 2011) issue out, the new issue of Internet Genealogy arrived (April/May 2011). As a long time subscriber, actually a charter subscriber to Smart Computing, I've mentioned the magazine before. I thought some readers might be interested in seeing what the topic of the day is.

It is no surprise that Internet Genealogy has articles about social media, every issue seems to cover something along that line. However, Smart Computing is a different matter. Their article, Get Connected, How Social Networking Can Benefit Your Business runs from pages 56 to 71, no small article for sure. Chapters includes the following:

  •  Put Your Business On Facebook
  • Get Linkedin
  • Put Social Networking To Work
  • Beyond the Big Names

Same Pattern -- Wordless Wednesday

My mother majored in textiles in college and loved sewing.
As a result, just about everything I wore was made by her.
We lived near San Francisco, so I am assuming these photos were taken in the winter.
