All right, I think everything here is again in working order. If you find any problems or any images that don’t load, etc., please contact me via the link above. Registrations are still currently turned off – as soon as I turned them back on, I was getting hit with Russian spam registrations again – so if you would like an account, please contact me directly and I can create one for you. However, again, unless you plan on authoring some pages (which I totally encourage), an account here is unnecessary. Finally, if you were on the Surname Registry before 5-29-2015, you must sign upRead More →
But I’m working on it… This website has been trouble for the last several years and, to be honest, I’ve just not had the time to work on it. I’m attempting to do that now. So things may look a little funny for a little while and I think I have lost some of the most recent comments that were made to some posts. I’m looking into how to restore those as well, I should have them in a backup. Along these lines, I will probably be removing a few features of this site including and maybe not limited to the surname registry. The SRRead More →

Sometimes we think that we live in a society which is radically different from anything that existed in the past. We go about our daily lives, certain that we are unique and that there is very little that we can learn from history. Certainly, it is true that we have made unprecedented technological advances, and that we live in a society that is more globally connected than ever before. However, it’s a mistake to assume that, just because we have the Internet and can get anywhere in the world in a couple of days, that we are somehow different.

Identifying your relatives from the past can be challenging when you are looking at your local area, but if you need to look further abroad into other states or countries, it can almost be impossible. It’s incredibly important to find established and authoritative resources in the region you are looking – preferably a local genealogical society that has a long history, good resources and enthusiastic members. Image source: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3d/Rainierreflect1.jpg That is certainly the case with the Seattle Genealogical Society. The society goes all the way back to 1923, when it was founded by eight local researchers. The goal of the society was – andRead More →
Education is booming. People everywhere want to learn more about everything, thanks to the information culture technology has delivered.

Millions of Americans find themselves in the position of looking to add to their family by adoption. Regardless of the reasons, the decision to adopt is one that delivers a genuine social and personal good. While it is not always easy, it is almost universally said by adopted families that the process changed their lives for the better. Those who come through the other side couldn’t imagine life without their adopted family set-up. For an increasing number of growing families, adoption is being seen as a viable, even desirable route. This is extremely encouraging, and adoption agencies worldwide are seeing improvements in the numbers ofRead More →
