Santa Picture

(okay...won't post with the picture....will have to try later...you just get to read my rambling...)

Wow...it has been a long time since I posted!! You all are probably missing my pictures...yeah right...lol.

Anyway...this is Hunter with Santa at the mall. ( he is wearing his cubscout shirt...he had a thing with cubscouts at the recycling center before his picture...not the best shirt for a Christmas picture but oh well!

I hope you are all doing well...we are all doing fine now...I had a trip to the ER last Friday night...I had a migraine for way too long(had it off and on since the week before Christmas...that is why my cards were late and some presents did not get mailed) and had gone to the doctor Thursday and Friday and got shots both days but they did not help. Then Jason came home from work on Fridday night to find me sitting on our bathroom floor crying because my head hurt so bad...he said lets go...so we went. One CAT scan, some blood work, an IV, some pain meds, and a spinal tap later I was sent home...we were ther for about 5 hours or so. Then...today I woke up with another one...only lasted a few hours...thankfully!

Hunter has been doing really well medically this year...not many problems with his asthma...hopefully he stays that way. Jason, well he never gets sick! And that leaves us with the dogs...they are both fine too...when they listen that is...lol!

Have a great day... I will try and post some more pictures as I get some time...maybe even a scrapbook page or two...imagine that!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to  World War II History Network  and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at  Casualty Cards Database. Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found : On the first page it states :  While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.    Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.    To request a card, please send an email to   history.division@usmc.mil   or a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134 .    I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because

5 Tips to Break Down Your Brick Wall

Originally posted at Lost Tree Project as a guest post February 2019. Eventually we all hit a brick wall.  My first brick wall was with Joseph Thomas {my husband's 3rd great grandfather} I spent months searching.  Brick walls can last weeks to months to years.  Below are some quick tips to help you break through that brick wall. Research another ancestor for a while and then go back to your brick wall .  You will see your brick wall ancestor with new eyes. Use a checklist to see if you missed any records.  {You can find my Evernote Research Checklist in my shared genealogy notebook.} Revisit your research.  Maybe you missed a piece of information in a document.  Maybe something seemed like it wasn't important but now that you have more information you find it is important. Learn something new.  It does not need to be genealogy related.  When you shift your thinking to something else and then go back to the brick

Tag or Notebook organizing System?

Great blog post at  harmonenterprises  blog by Stacey Harmon about tagging or using stacked notebooks to organize in Evernote.  I use both.  I have a notebook for each project or main subject and then within that notebook are stacked notebooks to break it down. I use an inbox notebook where every note goes that comes into Evernote; from there I review and sort each note. My notebooks are always changing depending on what I am working on.  When I start a project it gets a notebook stack and when I finish the project I keep what I need to keep.  Those notes go to a filing cabinet notebook and get tagged with relevant notes.  I try to make sure the notes have informational titles so it is easier to search for a note if I need to.  About twice a year I go through all of my notes one by one and delete the ones that are not relevant.  I did not think I would be deleting as many as I do but a lot of them I do not need to keep.
