Thanks, Becky, for "One Lovely Blog Award"
I was very pleased to find this beautiful award in my mailbox last night. My good friend, Becky Jamison, author of Grace and Glory, has bestowed Tennessee Memories with this honor. She had some of the sweetest things to say about my blog and I'm so pleased that she thought of me. She described the award button as custom made for her tastes. I agree. It reminds me of home and warmth and love.
I'd like to pass "One Lovely Blog Award" on to seven beautiful blogs and their exceptional authors. When you receive yours I hope you will take the time to read some new blogs or revisit some of your favorites. Then as Diana Ritchie at Random Relatives says, "The instructions are quite simple - just to nominate 7 other blogs. Well, it SOUNDS simple, but looking over all the creativity we have out there, wow, how to pick only 7!"
When I began to publish my blog Genealogy Traces last year I combined my husband's and my families and their ancestral lines, but I have quickly come to realize it is too much for the readers of one blog. I will continue tracing my family names Richards, Puckett, Gailey, Stone, Homsley, Cook, Brooks, Brock, Rowbury, Rogers and others on Genealogy Traces but will be using this new blog to properly showcase my husband's family.
His family is from East Tennessee and points further east. Family lines I will be researching are Shubert, Davis, Burns, Delozier, Cusick, Reese, Hitch, Conner, Cofer, Cooley, Brock, Rogers, and Graves. Listed among their places of birth are Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Cardiff, Wales.
"Saving the Past and Improving the Future" is the byline for
Mountaineer Heritage Park, an area of historical significance in the educational community of my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. Blogging about the members, activities, past and present, of the MWHS 50 Year Club and graduates of Mineral Wells High School is the the focus of the Mountaineer Heritage Park blog.
Everyone calls me Judy. I live in the countryside outside of the Hillsborough / Durham / Chapel Hill area of North Carolina with my husband, Bob. This year we will have been married 50 years. We both enjoy a life filled with grandchildren, genealogy, family, and friends. I enjoy blogging about genealogy, cemeteries, and my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. You can find me doing research, writing, or making preserves just about any time you call.
