Just a few things I thought were interesting.

US television networks are bidding for rights to a popular British gameshow called "Who do you think you are" which traces the genealogy of celebraties. Read more here

I checked out the Freegenealogysearchengine site but so far haven't had much luck.
It's located here

Has been forever since I've posted to my genealogy blog. I'm now attending classes at Wallace State Community College and will hopefully finish out my associates degree within a yr. Wednesday Oct 4th I will be giving an informative speech in my Communications class on Beginning your genealogy research. The speech can be from 7-9 minutes long so hopefully I will have just enough info. I know the topic...I just don't like speaking in front of people. Hopefully it won't rain as I have to hike across campus to this Communications class. It was originally supposed to be directly across from my first class of the day...not any more.

I know I'm a little late about writing about this but Rootsweb users now have the option of registering. I really like this cause it allows me to view a listing of all the areas I'm active in at Rootsweb with the exception of the Rootsweb/Ancestry Message Boards which from what I understand are going to be updated soon. I can view a listing of Post ems that I've added to others files my RSL a list of WorldConnect Files and a listing of my Mailing list memberships as well as a listing of those I admin(and a link to my tools page for those). Also for those who have PML there is a link to your PML settings page. :-)

Spent most of yesterday working on my Hale lines. I am fairly certain now that the Catherine Hale in Warren Co. in 1840 is the mother of Wm. Taylor Hale. This would mean that the two males who are living with her in 1840 are most likely Wm. Taylor and Francis A. Hale(Male b. abt 1825)

A wonderful breakthru shows that there is a perfect match of the 37 markers of the descendant of Jonathan Pitman(b 1748 NJ) to our descendant of Daniel & Comfort Hatfield Pitman. This is a MAJOR breakthru and now to find where the two lines meet.
