I’m a Winner!

I’ll share more information as I am able, but I just had to share the news that I just won a one year pro account at geni.com!! I have entered so many contests, and never have I won a single thing, so I am absolutely ecstatic right now!

In other news, I haven’t blogged properly in a while, but it’s that I haven’t been busy! I am currently compiling all the information I have gathered on the ancestor of my obsession, James Hamilton Cummons. I am organizing, confirming sources, and building a timeline. My hope is to get a clear picture of the gaps I have in his story, and hopefully get some direction on filling in those gaps.

I am super excited right now, because next week, I am going to visit my Papaw for his 77th birthday, and I am taking an extra day off work to go digging around Cabell County, West Virginia, the place where James settled and raised his family. I have never been to a courthouse or genealogical society to do hands on research before, and that was one of my genea-goals for 2011. If anyone has an advice, direction, or encouragement… I would love to hear from you!

  1. Hi Angie! I just stumbled across FindMyAncestor.com's blog, and in reading his archive noticed the blog about readers recommending apps. You commented that you had a Nook and are discovering things like the Centennial of Guyandotte – can I ask where you found it – were you searching Amazon, Google – how did you find the program?

  2. Ah, I just read further on his blog and found where he posted the lovely bio from you. I see you just used the Nook Store to explore and find the Centennial you mentioned – thank you for the idea – I normally go looking for books – will keep my eyes open for other items that have been “e-booked”.
