Please take a look at the photos posted on this website. Most are from Gallia county, Ohio where my grandparents lived. It would be wonderful if some one could recognize any one at all here. If so, please, please contact me. Thanks, Karen

To walk on the land where my grandmother grew up

For a long time I have wanted to go back to southern Ohio and walk on the land where my grandmother lived. To see the trees that were old even when she was young. Are the wild flowers related to the ones she might have picked in 1900? What will it feel like to walk up and down the gentle hills on the old family farm that is no longer producing crops? There are some ancient out-buildings barely standing, yet hiding some old jars in the cobwebby corners. Did she play hide-and-seek with her sisters? or run after her borther's old hound dog?

How To Do Everything Genealogy

I have attended a seminar presented by George Morgan and he is one of the best speakers I have heard.  So many times the genealogist is dry and boring, but not so with George.  He gives useable hints, answers questions, and presents in an easy going conversational manner. 
He is an authority in all aspects of family research.
