Family Stories: Genealogy Beyond “Just” the Dates
If you want your grandchildren and great-grandchildren to care about their ancestral family, your research must include more than just statistics and historical facts. It must encompass the stories--the fabric of your family’s history.
Linda Serna has loved family stories since the 7th grade, when she wrote about her family for a school project. Since then, in addition to raising six children, she has been an active researcher, with special emphasis on individual family stories and the part they play in finding clues, interpreting records, and scaling brick walls--and especially in helping us understand our pasts.

"A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.
Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
In simple terms, a blog is a web site, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what's new. Then they comment on it or link to it or email you. Or not.
Since Blogger was launched, almost five years ago, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, shaken up journalism, and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others.
And we're pretty sure the whole deal is just getting started.
A blog gives you your own voice on the web. It's a place to collect and share things that you find interesting— whether it's your political commentary, a personal diary, or links to web sites you want to remember.
Many people use a blog just to organize their own thoughts, while others command influential, worldwide audiences of thousands. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while personal journalers reveal inner thoughts."
Why are we doing it? Why should you read other people's blogs? Why would you do it?
