You Can Search the Census for Free on This Weekend

I am a member already, but I thought this was interesting.  They are allowing free census searches (with a free account) through midnight on September 3rd.  Not a bad way to expand your marketing list.

Identifying the Artist Signature on the Mystery Family Painting

My grandma showed me a painting that an old veteran of the Civil War named Josiah E Cass got while on a train in France.  Supposedly there is a big write up about this thing in the Eau Claire Leader Telegram in or around the forties but I can't find it in any of my searches.  The thing might be worth tons of money but probably not if it can't be identified.

I don't suppose anyone has any thoughts.

Genealogy is Really a Big Deal!!!!

Seriously... I don't feel like I have ever been a part of something so important as my family.  To capture and record their history for future generations digitally has been a great undertaking but an amazing experience so far.  I know it will take years but I also know that it is worth every second.

Just a thought!
