Clegg Family

I continue to work on The Clegg Family project.  I'm extracting some of the information from the Clegg book by Blaine L. Clegg.  Some information is coming from FindAGrave.

There are links between the Clegg family and the Henthorn and Atkinson families.  I used RootsMagic drag and drop to import the Atkinson information from their file into my Charts file where I am working on the Clegg family.

At this point I have just over 200 pages of Clegg information.  I'm not certain about how much time I'm willing to spend on this project.  For the moment I'm finding the project interesting.

Clegg Family

This week I am doing some updates to my file that I call Charts.  I'm adding more information to the Clegg family of the upper Ohio valley.  I'm not sure how much time I'm willing to spend on the project or when I will be ready to share the results.

In the meantime, here's the link to a 51-page PDF for Thomas Clegg that I shared in the past.  I'm fortunate to have a copy of Cleggs of the Upper Ohio Valley that compiler Blaine L. Clegg shared with me many years ago.

Tradition can be a thread that helps keep a family close.
What are your family traditions?

Remember to honor your ancestors.

PDF Reports

I maintain a secret  Henthorn Genealogy Group on Facebook.  Membership is by invitation only. In the last few months that's where I have been sharing my genealogy projects.

Today I posted two PDF descendant reports which include name and place indices:

  • Jacob W. Mason, Jr. - 107 pages
  • Allen Arbogast - 12 pages (includes marriages to two members of the Rine family)

RootsMagic6 on Sale

The current version of RootsMagic is "7."

For a limited time you can buy RootsMagic6 for $9.95 on Amazon.  If you are on a tight budget or want to give a gift to someone now is a good time to make a purchase.

Here's an extract from the RootsMagic newsletter with more information and a link.

RootsMagic 6 for $9.95 on Amazon
While cleaning the warehouse we came across a bunch of boxes of RootsMagic 6 CDs.  Rather than throw them in a landfill, we have put them up on Amazon for $9.95.

Although it is an older version of the program, they are new (still shrinkwrapped) full version 6 program CDs.  If you just want to give a program to someone that you are trying to get started in genealogy, this could be a good option.  If they register their program they will also eligible to get future versions of RootsMagic at the upgrade price as well.

These version 6 CDs at this price will remain available on Amazon until we run out of them.

Making Everyday Sacred

We can all create sacred books and boxes -- a volume of dreams, a heart-felt diary, a notebook of thoughts, a particularly meaningful album of photographs [a family history or a genealogy] -- and thus in a small but significant way can make the everyday sacred.
