All I want for Christmas...is my family history!

Family history heirlooms and memories

Create a personal family ancestry heirloom for your family this coming Christmas.


4th of July time to celebrate family

As we come together to celebrate the founding of our country, it's also a time to celebrate family.  The art of oral history starts by listening to family stories. 


Happy Mother's Day! Ask your Mom and Grandma about your family ancestry

Use Mother's Day to ask about your maternal family history. And make sure to record the conversation so you can have a treasure for years to come.


Family ancestry research and preservation

After researching your family history, it's time to preserve it!

You've done a lot of work to research your family ancestry. Now what?  Don't forget to preserve your memories and family history too! Pass it on...if you don't, who will?


Record your family history before it's too late

The winter months are a great time to conduct interviews.  Capture memories.  It will delight your relatives and give you a lot of information for your family ancestry research.


Family ancestry research and family

Connect to history through family ancestry research and visiting historic places.


Share your Family Ancestry Research stories

Preserve your family history and ancestry research.  Include old family legends (and the truth behind them) as well as the stories and people you meet along the way researching.


New year resolutions for family ancestry research

On the eve of 2013, are you thinking about your family history?  Do you want to start researching your ancestry but don't know where to start? Do you want to find out if an old family legend is true? TurtleTrove can help you get started.


Bringing family together through ancestry research

Who are you related to?  Do you know your distant cousins too?  Resolve to find them in 2013!  Be they distantly removed by time or place.  I correspond with my distant cousin in Switzerland.  Sharing information brings us all a little closer.


Family and the Holidays

Christmas and the holidays are such a wonderful time of year to reflect on your family ancestry. There are many sources to look up what your family would have done back in the home country or during the American Revolution.  Holiday traditions change a lot over time and space. What traditions do you have now that have been in the family for a long time?  What are the new ones?


Proving a new patriot.

Today I was very excited to have a new American Revolutionary patriot proven.  What makes Obededom Sanders even more special is that he also is new to the DAR Patriot Rolls, meaning I was the first to prove his service.  This means so much to me and my DAR sisters because it means his sacrifice and service has not been forgotten and he'll be forever remembered as a patriot for the founding of this great country.

I found Obed when I was looking for information on a different person. It goes to show that having a plan in your research is critical but sometimes you just need to cruise off your path because you never know what you'll find.
