Consanguinity – Connecting The Dots

“Consanguinity: (kŏn’săng-gwĭn’ĭtē) , relationship by blood, whether linear or collateral. Primarily concentrating on my Browning family from Harrison County, Ohio — and their subsequent move to Crawford County, Illinois — but I’ve got Plymell, Eagleton, Garrard, Nichols, Swan, Nevitt, Huls, Markee, Depperman, Papstein/Popstein and Hamilton in there too. And that’s just the beginning……”

I’d Sooner Be A Graveyard Rabbit

“A member of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits discovering the buried treasures of central Oklahoma. “Lives are commemorated – deaths are recorded – families are reunited – memories are made tangible – and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.” –Author unknown”

Irish Roots Cafe

“This message comes to you from the Irish Roots Cafe, home of the Irish Genealogical Foundation on the web. We are a membership organization that publishes books newsletters and podcasts, since 1978. Our main interest here at the cafe is in Irish Family History and Culture. This blog includes shownotes from our three podcast series, including:

1: Irish Families worldwide. (The first of its kind)

2: History of the Irish in America.

3: Irish Song and Recitation Festival.

The Irish Roots Cafe has a number of firsts to its credit, including the first broadcast series on Irish Family History; the first book on the Irish in Missouri; and the first 34 book set on Irish families, covering every county in Ireland ! It is the largest collection of its kind. Sweaney will greet you at the door and Molly has another pot of Irish coffee on. Come have a seat with Mike in the corner booth. You are welcome to join us anytime at the Irish Roots Cafe !”

My New Chimerical Kit

“I thought long and hard about a name for my blog. My New Chimerical Kit seemed to fit perfectly. It says everything about me, well not everything, but it is the perfect name for me. It’s a bit puzzling, unique, inventive, and since it’s a kit that makes it well organized! Think about it, maybe you can figure out why it’s perfect.

I have varied posts at my blog including those on genealogy. I also maintain a site on Thomey/McKim Genealogy at”

Nebraska Roots and Ramblings

“NEBRASKA became a state on 1 March 1867. It is a grand state which people explored and passed through on their way to the west coast. Fortunately, some found their way back and others took advantage of the Homestead Act of 1862 and 1866 to obtain land in Nebraska. There are many Nebraska resources available for researchers. This blog will be devoted to research and resources in Nebraska. There will be information pertaining to genealogical events in the state and a lot of helpful hints and tips for doing research. Occasionally a post will pertain to a Nebraska library that has a genealogical collection. Stay tuned for more on Nebraska … home of many genealogists and home of the Big Red Huskers!!”


“The main topic will be my own roots. I expect there will be posts about my ancestors, about the places they lived, about my research, about my genealogical successes and failures. Roots will also be the place for posts about genealogy or related subjects that do not fit in the Trace your Dutch roots theme, and cemetery posts that do not belong on The Graveyard Rabbit of Utrecht and Het Gooi. In the next post I will introduce you to my genealogy research.”

The Digital Cemetery

“This is the spot to blog about all things related to cemeteries, whether it be care, monument research, questions, or to read what’s going on with the Digital Cemetery Project.”

The Family File

“Greetings from Ed and Sue, and welcome to our newest blog, “The Family File”…. we hope you enjoy the information and stories on the site and will visit again and again.

This blog will be dedicated to posts on Ed’s ancestors to include: Hartwell, Sherman, Higley, Leach, Neust and of course Edminster, plus some information on related lines.

Again, we hope you enjoy the blog.. feel free to contact us with questions, corrections, or new data.”

The Graveyard Rabbit of North Snohomish County

“I have a confession to make…..

My husband (Mr. Ed) and I like graveyards. Yes, really! I don’t know how many times on vacations we’ve visited graveyards, sometimes even when we don’t have a reason to (a “valid” reason being a genealogy research trip). Our neighbor thinks we’ve got a screw loose, and often reminds us that most people go to the beach or Disney World on vacation, but not Sue and Mr. Ed…. no, they go to graveyards! So I guess maybe he’s right, there is a screw loose somewhere, but we can’t help it… we do enjoy those graveyard jaunts and reading history as recorded on the old stones.”

Trace My Origin

“My name is Sharon Crisafulli and I am passionate about many things in my life. One of them happens to be genealogy. After all James Arthur Baldwin said it best “Know from whence you came, If you know from whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go.” In this blog I will share with you some amazing genealogical stories and finds on my genealogical pursuit. Come journey thru time with me.”
