Happy Days!

I apologize for not having a freebie on here recently. It seems that I am running in a huge circle and not gaining ground sometimes. I'll get there, I know I will! I wanted to share a couple of things with all of you. For those who know me outside of the digiscrap loop and as some of you are learning, Genealogy is the other love of my life. There is something about the challenges it creates and I don't think many things compare to being able to help someone trace their family tree. Many acts of kindness have fallen my way and I try to pay them forward whenever I can. Okay, you say, so what has this to do with you...

My friend Terry (withnuts) at Moo Two Designs has started to put genealogy lessons together for all of us (yep, you too) and she has posted the 1st lesson here. There is a lot of great information in the first lesson, sure to get you jump-started on that family tree! Please be sure to visit the forum and check it out. Yell with any questions.

Now, if that was not enough to be jumping and shouting about, a friend called me just a while ago. There is a huge scrapbook (uh huh, I said scrapbook) that needs to be copied and digitized. I will be leaving here in a short while to go and have a look see. He said the pages are huge, so I am thinking that scanning is going to be out of the question. Anyway, the things in the scrapbook pertain to local area folks who served in World War II. It will be wonderful to share that information with folks, via my genealogy web site Genealogy Pit Stop, and to work at digitizing the actual documents, news articles, etc. for the use of future generations. I'm not sure why I get so excited about work, but I just can't stop smiling today.

Oh and one last thing... you can buy Royanna Fritschmann's entire store (CU included) at Divine Digital for $25. I have been downloading files for 3 days!!!!

So, hurry on over to Moo Two and check out the genealogy lesson. Then stop over at Divine Digital and Royanna has some great kits for working with your heritage album. Don't forget to mark you calendars for the genealogy chat at Moo Two on the 30th at 9:30 Eastern time and I promise I will have the attendance bonus finished by then. Whew.... Okay I am done rattling now!

Hugs to all,
Jan
