"Start your hunt"

Good Morning friends, again its a rainy day here in georgia.....I hope i have equipped u now with the tools to start your hunt and today that is exactly what we are starting.  First, i want you to get a blank piece of paper and at the top write  your name(remember, if u are married woman to put your maiden name)  that is your full name draw a line under draw a line down between your name and across like a T...on the left side write your mother's full name including maiden name and on the left your father's full name.  You can write down their dob or date of birth/death if u want.  Being we r trying to find a family to follow (if u haven't decided on one yet), keep following down with your mother's mother/father and so forth.  At this point do not fill in the children yet.  Is it getting hard???  yea, it is?  Work on this today and lets see how far u get.....Have a great day and talk tomorrow  cg

"Start your hunt"

Goodmorning!  I was going to start the tree this morning and such...but u need to get organized b4 u can start hunting.  U will need some tools.  A spiral notebook, pencil (u'll b doing lots of erasing) and pen. Decide where u will file ur information.  I use a loose leaf notebook with tabs that divide and organize my information.  This looseleaf notebook will fill up fast.  A drawer in a file cabinet will be great for extra forms.  You can go on and they have all the forms u will need to get organized and fill out for tomorrow's adventure into the back of your mind........see u there   CG

k, its Monday, March 28, 2011 and I am starting this new blog.  Hope you all will join me in the hunt!  We are hunting our relatives from 100's of years ago.  What fun we will have.  Just a little about me, I have been loving the hunt for over 30 years now when my kids were just babies and have just retired from being a OTR truck driver to pursue my passion, the love of the hunt.

Join me every day for new and exciting ways to hunt our relatives.  I am very new at this blogging, so please bear with me if I make mistakes (and I will) but we all have to start somewhere.  Today is the beginning of a new day.  Join me tomorrow, tuesday, as I start you all on this hunt.
