School has started, are you smarter than a 5th Grader?

Well here we are  back to school again but it makes me wonder if kids are the only ones that should be learning? I hazzard a guess that we should all be trying to learn something new once in awhile.

For me that is some new gem about my widespread family like the long ago ancestor that lived with his family of 6 in a one room house and toiled at a job that barely paid $20 a month or the missing child in a family that you find died on the trip across the sea and was buried overboard. These stories are heartbreaking but do answer a question. It also makes us all realize how lucky we are and what a blessed life we have now.

Learning also encludes the computer. If you have not entered your valuable family research to a computer yet, now is the time. There are many great programs available and they seem to realize that not everyone is Bill Gates trained so most are very user friendly. Once you take the leap you will find the ease of sharing materials outweighs any strain of inputting data. You just have to think on the terms that Grandpa is now data!

We are always available to help with any genealogy questions. If we don’t know the answer, we can find someone that does. Now go learn something…..
