Last call for 4th Annual SHARE A MEMORY Contest, deadline tomorrow at midnight!




DearREADERS,
So Ol' Myrt is working through the entries received thus far. Previously we looked at
Carol A. Bowen Stevens' One Memory, My Best Genealogy Day, Well, One of the Best and her second entry One Memory, My Best Genealogy Day, Correct That to Read, Man’s Best.


I've also enjoyed looking at MaryFoxworthy's Big Grandma's House, including two striking photos of her beautiful grandmother. This was posted in her Photographs, Memories and Notes on a Family History Blog.

June Stearns Butka created a Google Docs slide show titled Tina May Hutchins 8 May 1874-1949. Read this to find out why Tina felt "Life is too short to hold grudges."


Janice Sellers wrote on the 54th anniversary of her parent's Miami, Florida wedding specifically for "family members who don't normally read my blog in hopes that they'll be able to identify the people in the photos I don't recognize." See Wedding Wednesday posted in her Ancestral Discoveries Blog.



Erica Madsen is doing a mini-series of blog posts about her grandpa. These include "Serious Cards" (where you can find out about who double-skunked him), "Zen Shoe Shopping Grandpa" and "Things to Look Forward To" published on Erica's site GeneaBean.org.

Linda Stufflebean has created a PowerPoint titled "Vernon Tarbox Adams "Grandfather" with parents Charles and Annie Adams." Vernon grew up in Calais, Maine. You'll get a kick out of how absolutely darling little Vernon is in his baby pictures.

One of my Photoshop tutors, Teri Chaffin, shared "My Dad" from her Yesterday to Tomorrow Blog. I didn't know your Daddy, Teri, but I also thank him for his service. Thank-you for sharing Theodor Jefferson White, Jr.'s memory with us as well as handsome grandson Carter.

Have I missed anyone's entry? Do hurry and get those entries published.
