GeneaBloggers' Radio

Once again tonight we were able to enjoy GeneaBloggers' Radio after watching "Who Do You Think You Are" featuring Kim Cattrall. Listening to Thomas MacEntee and the show's callers, as well as many of those on the chat line, speaking/writing about the very personal side of genealogy and family history, I was again reminded of the fact that we really are a "family of humans", so to speak. So many individuals in our community have uncovered the same sort of difficult history, or histories of a similar nature, as that which Kim Cattrall has had to face in her own family. At times it is perhaps easier to notice the differences between us, but it is nice to be able to take pause and notice the similarities, and realize that maybe we are not quite as alone as we might sometimes feel.

Cheers Everyone.

Matrilineal Monday: Today is Family Day in Ontario Canada

Ah yes, thank goodness for the provincial government which is currently in power, otherwise we in Ontario might not have a holiday in the month of February. Family Day is a provincial statutory holiday, celebrated on the third Monday in February. It is observed in the provinces of Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Approximately sixty percent of Canadians observe the day.

It is wonderful to take time out to celebrate the family. This seems a holiday tailor made for family historians and genealogists. For me today will involve time with both my living family and the ancestors in my matrilineal tree, as I continue to organize records and documents germane to their history.

May you enjoy this day with your family no matter where you live!

Cheers,
Jennifer

GeneaBloggers' Radio: A great experience

It's 12:15 a.m. Saturday morning and I'm wide awake and feeling really pumped up after listening to, and participating in, Thomas MacEntee's GeneaBloggers' Radio show. Thank You Thomas for hosting the show and welcoming so many of us. It was great to hear all of the opinions about tonight's (that's Friday night's) broadcast of "Who Do You Think You Are?", featuring Tim MacGraw. Also, thank you for updating us about Roots Tech, and many other "goings on" in the world of Genealogy. Despite the fact that you are very busy I hope you know that many many many of us really appreciate all that you do to keep us in the Genealogy and GeneaBlogging loop.

Cheers!
Jennifer
