Bev’s Genealogical Vitals
http://bevsgenealogicalvitals.blogspot.com
Blog type: Research blog

When searching for vital information for my family, there are often many others listed who are not my family.  Those obits, marriages, deaths, etc. are entered on my blog.  I also index history (local and otherwise) books I’ve read that don’t already have an index and add these to my blog.

Blog type: Individual family history

Climbing Greenwood follows my research into my maternal grandmother’s family line.  My Nanny left me with a short family history that I mine for clues.  And I frequently find that her stories are untrue.  But for me, this is all part of the fun of discovering how my ancestors fit into the past.

My research takes me to western Massachusetts (turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century), Quebec (1638-1860s), New Brunswick (seventeenth and eighteenth centuries), the Isle of Miquelon (eighteenth and nineteen centuries), and occasionally to the present as I wrestle with research issues, false leads, and an unfamiliar past.  I would love company and suggestions as I share my adventure.

Blog type: Individual family history

I’m Jennifer Dunn and I’ve been researching my family history since I was 14. As a child, I couldn’t get enough of my parents’ and grandparent’s stories about the past. I could only imagine picking cotton, visiting those strange places called “outhouses,” or a time when girls were barred from wearing blue jeans to school. As I grew older, my rapt attention to stories of the South’s past grew into a love for history, and I have formulated my own theory that history scholars are simply adults who never grew tired of bedtime stories.

I went on to earn a B.A. in American History (in pursuit of more stories) and now I work to tie my own family’s story to the American story. Nothing makes me happier than realizing my relatives would have traveled down the Old Federal Road in pursuit of land or finding a personal connection to a momentous event, like World War I or the Spanish Flu Epidemic. (As morbid as that may sound!)

When I’m not researching my family history, I’m a writer and own Social Street Media, a digital marketing agency.

If you’re a connection, or have questions or comments about my “Big Questions” then feel free to Contact Me.
