Dear Annie
http://anniebartos.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Diaries, Individual family history

My great Aunt Annie Bartos lived with her twin Uncle Wenzel until his death at 83 and then lived by herself until she died at 90 in 1983. She was a collector. One walked between boxes in her house. Among this treasure is a collection of about 700 postcards from about 1910 to 1924. It is my goal to share them with her descendants and with the world.

Annie, Wenzel, Frank, Joe and John were the children of Frances and Frank Bartos [my great grandparents]. Joe is my grandfather.  John was the traveler. He went to serve in WWI, but did not serve overseas. He worked in Colorado and died in an accident. Struck by lightning.

Blog type: Individual family history

Family History Research for the following families: Chandler, Vance, Campbell, Devenport, Buffington, Lipscomb, Pool, Ellenburg, Watkins, Thompson, Clark, Chastain, York and more.

Years ago I started my family history research to help answer some questions my grandfather had about his ancestors. He was very interested but as he had gotten older his vision was deteriorating, making it difficult for him to read. As a recent college graduate I volunteered to find some basic records about our family members. I never knew how much I’d enjoy it! My grandfather was so impressed with the research I’d bring to him that he repeatedly told me that I should write a book. After a few months of research I gathered all the information I had gathered and put the facts together in a short document titled “Papa’s Book.” For years I have continued my research and now have gathered enough information to write an extensive book for all 4 of my grandparents. I have created this blog to share some of my research with others and in hopes meeting some cousins I’ve never met.

the spirit and dust

The Spirit and The Dust: A Taphophilia Journal
http://spirit-dust.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Cemetery blogs

I’m a Yankee transplanted to the South to pick up the pieces of a life gone awry. After spending a great deal of my life in school studying history and working in the museum field, I have now settled on computers as a new outlet for my interest in history. My family’s history can be traced back to at least the Norman Invasion of England and I (with my sister) descend from kings of the Scottish Celts, Irish Celts and Norman Scots, which I have known for as long as I can remember — my history always being a part of my present. Because I grew up going to cemeteries with my parents to visit the graves of relatives, I have a long-standing affinity for burial places, whether a dolmen in Ireland or a weed filled forgotten family plot. My idea of relaxing when my mind is in turmoil is to go clean the graves of those long gone and forgotten, just to let them know that someone thought about them. My blog will be a place where I can showcase my interest in death art via photographic journeys through cemeteries and finding noted articles of interest. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having me perform any research or photograph a grave in my area for your genealogy.
