The Tuttles with A.J. Lee Brittany Haas, A Few Old Memories by Hazel D...

Molly Tuttle singing lead on this wonderful Hazel Dickens song.

I've listened to the James King version many times over the years.

Today was the first time I heard Molly Tuttle sing it.

Updating Burial Month & Year

I like to include the burial month and year with cemetery place name information.  I imported records, shared by others, that didn't include this information.  That is to say, the place and name of the cemetery was provided without date information.

I'm working on a project with my Yoho file to extrapolate the month and year from the death information and add it to the burial information.

I'm able to find the problem records using the RootsMagic "Find" command.

I search for:
Burial date is blank and
Burial place is "not" blank.

It's a tedious process that will take quite a few days to complete.  The result will be better looking reports and improve reports of burial information.

Yesterday's Wine

When I had a genealogy website on AOL I featured the lyrics to this song on the homepage.

Here's Willie Nelson singing his song. There is a copy of the lyrics on YouTube with this version.  I have a cassette tape of George Jones singing the song too.

Recording your genealogy and family history
is a great way to partake of:
Yesterday's Wine.

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.
