Here we go again. I try not to focus on the (im)morality and (lack of) ethics of this company, primarily as it takes precious time away from my research, however there are some things that just can’t go without being shared/discussed. Today I have two such topics. As you’ll notice the last two posts focusedContinue reading “Ancestry”
A conversation on a mogul’s social media platform led me to look up companies under Ancestry’s umbrella. Later I returned for future reference, who not to use (yes, I admit, I’m no longer enchanted with Ancestry, but it took me 23 years to get here.. and I’m not leaving this headspace even if they paidContinue reading “REVIEW: Ancestry.com’s ProGenealogists.com”
Have you ever wondered about why Terms of Service, otherwise known as TOS, are a mile long and so confusing that even a lawyer might trip over themselves trying to explain them? I started with Ancestry over 20 years ago, back when they weren’t even a big player. Over the two decades, they’ve purchased multipleContinue reading “Ancestry Terms of Service”
It’s been a long time since I have blogged. If I told you that my first blog was actually a very successful one, viewed in 27 countries, I bet you’d laugh…. but it’s true! You would laugh even harder if you knew the context, or even how it got so big, but no I won’tContinue reading “Email”
Back in 1998 in Chickasaw County, MS I was overwhelmed when I walked into a local library and found books about MY family. Even pages that had been written by my great-great aunt, who I adored since I was a child. I’m not a huge book reader, front to back, but I dabble. Maybe IContinue reading “The library!

John R Long has been a mystery to my cousin Jim, for the 20+ years he’s researched the Longs. I suspect he has the same feeling I do about my Buchanan’s, where for 25 years I’ve been in the same exact place, with the same names, and no matter how hard I try, I haven’tContinue reading “John R Long”
I posted something last weekend re Patricia Bray Welch, Gust Canert Bray and genealogy malpractice both in paper and DNA. I rewrote/added to it some many times, I re read it the other day and realized I repeated myself a million times. So, No! I’m not changing my mind about the post, it WILL return.Continue reading “Temporary pull of one post”
Thomas Albert Sartain, a man who not only has several children, but has the easily recognizable Sartain face, especially to anyone even remotely connected to his line. Thanks to his descendant, James F Long, this personally held family photo is being exclusively shared for the first time. Thanks Jim! 🥰 Thomas is Jim’s 2ggf, throughContinue reading “EXCLUSIVE: A one of a kind photo of Thomas Albert Sartain”
Where do I even begin? I’ve started 3 different posts, and each become too long, even by my standards! Let’s try a *brief* history. 2 James William Buchanan + 2 Howard Pink/ney Buchanan (aka HP) in the same area. What are the odds? For almost 3 years, doing research in a small community for oneContinue reading “2 Howard Pink/ney’s lead to 2 James William Buchanan’s”
Birth to Grave on one of John R Long’s son, James Washington Long: B 9Nov1839 was Itawamba Co, MS.** POB as Itawamba was previously ‘presumed’ as we always thought John R was in Itawamba however, according to James’ own 1863 union reenlistment, it states he was born in Pickens Co, AL, therefore we believe JohnContinue reading “Birth to Grave: James Washington Long, son of John R Long.”
