My Blogs

Sharing my family history work is something I've enjoyed doing most of my life. The creation of a blog for the families that I've done a lot of research is one way I can share. Here's the list of my blogs and a brief description of each one:
  • Aebleskievers and Other Favorites - A family blog started 30 October 2008 devoted to sharing our favorite recipes and ideas to keep the family food budget down. Share your recipes today! Add a picture too! Several family members are contributors to this blog.
  • Heart of Story - Started on 13 August 2007, This blog is dedicated to recording the stories of my ancestors and getting to the heart of the story. A moment, an event, a special trigger that caused the stories to be told from generation to generation. For me, that's the heart of the story. My own stories related to searching for my ancestors will be the highlight of this blog.
  • Benjamin Kingman Curtis - Started on 25 September 2006, this blog documents the search for the names of Benjamin's parents, siblings, and grandparents. The search was originally begun in the 1930's by his children. This blog will document the search both past, present, and future.
  • Chauncey Walker West - Started on 28 January 2008, this Blog was created to document all that has already been written about his life of Chauncey Walker West, including his wives, and children. The identification of all known sources, including websites that document his life, his family, descendants, and ancestors will be a key aspect of this Blog. Several descendants are active contributors to the blog.
  • Hartley Family Organization - On 8 March 2007 this blog was officially launched to support the survival of the Hartley Family Organization that was unofficially started in 1938 when a family reunion was held for all the descendants of George and Rebecca [nee Richards] Hartley. Those in the generation who started the reunions are gone now and the reunions continued for a few years without the founders. Today, this blog is the only surviving activity of the Hartley organization that began 74 years ago.
