What's Up Genealogy? Google+ Hangout on Air

Just spent a very nice, productive portion of an hour with Caroline Pointer and her panel at What's Up Genealogy? Google+ Hangout on Air.

Enjoyed  the 20-minute show where they went over the news from Rootstech and shared gen-tech research tips. One of the highlights of the Hangout was getting to meet and hear from the one and the only Marian Pierre-Louis who was their guest. Marian told us about her BlogTalkRadio show, Fieldstone Common, and has totally intrigued me! I will definitely tune in.

Caroline Pointer and her panel get together for a Hangout with news from the genealogy world at 8:00 P.M. Central every Friday night. Put it on your calendar.

Caroline M. Pointer can be found at 4YourFamilyStory , on the new YouTube One channel and Google + .
She was joined on the panel tonight by Tessa Keough who works with Legacy Virtual Users' Group and the Guild of One Name Studies; Linda McCauley, who writes Documenting the Details, is the Technology Chair of the Kentucky Genealogy Society and is involved with Legacy Virtual Users Group; and Marian Pierre-Louis, the host of Fieldstone Common which airs live every Thursday at 1:00 P.M. EST.

I'm looking forward to learning more from all of these ladies.

A Gailey Cousin Christmas Tree Tradition

Most of my family reunions and get-togethers have been centered around holidays or special events. It's hard to pick out a special personality (we have several - as I'm sure most of you do) and I've thought about all of the pets we've had in the past, the special heirlooms that grandma loved to display during the holidays and I'm really having a hard time coming up with a single one.

My aunt Irene and uncle Raymond always had the big get-togethers at their house, because it was the largest, had acres of pecans trees to play under and they had the most grandchildren! Of course, all of that was later, after all six of us cousins had grown up and had children of our own.

Thinking of Christmas, my mind keeps going back to the time before I moved into Grandma and Doc's home and we celebrated at our house. I remember getting a beautiful bride doll one Christmas. Wish I still had that doll. Have no idea where she traveled to after she got married. And then there was o…

BOBBY


Bushy brows draw together as the old man draws paint Over the wood – he tried to make his shaking hand glide smoothly. Both the paint and the brush left a squiggly line, By the look of his face You knew he was not pleased with his efforts.

My Home Town by Dorothy Hansen

My Home Town

For thirty years this California town
has been the place where I have slept at night,
and shopped, and worked, and driven about.

But home is where my childhood feet
ran bare on Texas clay …
on streets that were like arteries
to all the lives I loved and shared.

Now, as storm clouds gather in November
and leaves are on the ground,
these asphalt streets and stranger’s cars
seem even more remote.

I long to live where I am known,
and my grandparents, too …
where all the folks I meet each day
know just where I belong.

They’ve known my folks and relatives.
They’ve seen me go through school.
I have a place on Texas soil
in the town where I was born.

It is my home, belongs to me,
and I yearn for a hearth that’s gone.

From Dorothy Hansen's “Cedar Berries,” her collection of poems about Texas.


Dorothy Lee Hansen wrote this poem about my home town of Mineral Wells, Texas. She was born there in 1925 and is of my mother's generation. From what I have read about her she was full of life…
