Leaf Twig and Stem
Blog type: Family
Retired from my teaching job of 34 years, I’m off on the next great adventure and exploring my past and my future in the blogosphere.
My blog is a way for me to potentially connect with other family members who remain “undiscovered” and to keep my extended family updated on my family research. I also share the things I’ve learned as I get deeper into this relatively new (for me) hobby.
Blog type: Family
I have done genealogy for about 12 years, am a member of RAOGK volunteers, Family History Consultant and admitted Family History addict. I am not a professional genealogist … I am the Mother of 4 boys, all of whom are Eagle Scouts … “The Offering” has several meanings. It comes from the Scripture in Malachi 3:3 in the Old Testament: He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an “offering in righteousness”. One concept of this “offering” is our books of genealogy and family history. In Latter-day Scripture Section 13 of the Doctrine and Covenants states that the Priesthood would never again be taken from the earth: “until the sons of Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in Righteousness”. This is MY OFFERING, my book, and my family’s history.
Sharing Apples from My Tree
Blog type: Family
I am a wife and mother of 3 little ones ages 7, 4, and 2. They keep me busy, but in my free time I love to write, work on genealogy and ride my bike. I am so lucky to be married to my best friend for the last 12 years. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). I am thankful to my grandma Budd who I lost September 23, 2012 who shared her love for Family History. I am so excited to learn more about Genealogy and share my stories and experiences.
