    Moved to be Ancestor Approved

    Thank you kindly, MountainGenealogy for presenting me with the Ancestor Approved Award. I did a little digging (ie. “googling”) and discovered that the award was initiated by Leslie Ann Ballou at Ancestors Live Here just a few days ago, 29 March 2010 to recognize blogs she appreciated and enjoyed. I have been reading Leslie Ann's blog for a while now, and it's great to see new bloggers jumping into the genealogy blogosphere with both feet.

    The Ancestor Approved Award asks that the recipient list ten things you have learned about any of your ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlighted you and pass the award along to ten other bloggers who you feel are doing their ancestors proud.

     Here's my Top Ten List

    1. Surprised to learn that  my mother's birth name was changed to her present name when she was 22 years old.
    2. Surprised to realize Great Aunt Mercy's family tree is more right than wrong.
    3. Surprised to discover my grandmother loved candy, so does my mom!
    4. Humbled by Walter G. May's service in World War I.
    5. Humbled by the Eliphaz and Minnie Kinsel's gritty determination to improve their fortune.
    6. Humbled by Arline Kinsel's religious quest.
    7. Humbled by how well my ancestors did with so little.
    8. Enlightened by Mercy's genealogy research.
    9. Enlightened to learn that Arline was a Harvey House girl
    10. Enlightened by all my ancestors efforts to pave the way to the future.

    I'm not sure where my Grandmother was serving pies, but Mom thinks it was Las Vegas, NM, even tho they were from Kansas.

    very twilight zone, I agree !
