Leslie Anderson will discuss how to apply the classic strategy of information-gathering to your research so that you can write a robust family history. She will explain how customized timelines, resource guides, and locality guides can help you with your writing.
Leslie's research began with one question: "Where was my great-grandfather born?" The answer (and the analysis) culminated in an article that won the 2013 National Genealogical Society Family History Writing Contest. The four-generation narrative "Tabitha (Bugg) George Smith (1838 - ca 1890) of Mecklenburg County, Virginia" was published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (March 2015). "It was over 20 pages with more than 10,000 words and 200 citations."
Nicka Smith is a professional photographer, speaker, and documentarian with more than 16 years of experience as a genealogist. She has extensive experience in African ancestored genealogy, reverse genealogy, and family reunion planning and execution. She is also an expert in genealogical research in the Northeastern Louisiana area, sharing genealogy with youth, documenting the ancestral journey, and employing the use of new technology in genealogy and family history research.
Once upon a time, there was a man who worked very hard just to keep food on the table for his family. This particular year a few days before Christmas, he punished his little five-year-old daughter after learning that she had used up the family's only roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. As money was tight, he became even more upset when on Christmas Eve he saw that the child had used all of the expensive gold paper to decorate one shoebox she had put under the Christmas tree. He also was concerned about where she had gotten money to buy what was in the shoebox.
Nevertheless, the next morning the little girl, filled with excitement, brought the gift box to her father and said, "This is for you, Daddy!" As he opened the box, the father was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, now regretting how he had punished her. But when he opened the shoebox, he found it was empty and again his anger flared. "Don't you know, young lady," he said harshly, "when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside the package!" The little girl looked up at him with sad tears rolling from her eyes and whispered: "Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was all full." The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his precious little girl. He begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.
In a very real sense, each of us has been given an invisible golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
On this wonderful Christmas Day in 2014, let us remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Christ. Family. Friends. May you and yours have the best Christmas ever from your friends and family at American White Hostory Month and Prepare To Take America Back!

Listen to what we're doing...what we're offering and why you and your children should join us!

Whither the Family Medical History? As a family fanatic in a "Families Only" practice, I love the FMH and use it daily- over and over again. It's rich and useful and ever changing. A JAMA Viewpoint will be the stimulus for my comments.
Food: It's killing us and saving us at the same time. Get a fork! is one of my current dogmas. Is it that simple? No wheat. More nuts. More forks.?
I'm still having fun in practice. I may be somewhat delusional since the walls are moving in with IT and EMR's everywhere. I do fear the loss of my voice as a Family Physician. I comment on my blog about the Voice of Family Medicine.

Welcome to American White History Month Radio Talk Show - where White Heritage is Celebrated. Gather up your Family, Friends and those close to your lives and join us this Sunday evening from 7-9pm CST when we will be introducing you to OUR Family....those people who ARE American White History Month and Prepared To Take America Back, AWHM's Sister Site.
Folks, this will prove to be the show that will finally and convincingly DEFINE who we really are, what we actually believe in, who and what we stand for and why it is that our family felt so strongly about these issues, that we've made it our Life Mission to finally speak out about these very real problems and these very real threats.
Allow us to dispel the MYTHS that are so prevelant about us....because we are NOT racists, we are NOT about hate or rage against other races, nor do we even want a month set aside in the year to celebrate and recognize white heritage. We seek to correct these problems by having already begun the creative development and implementation of programs which are designed to legitimize our quest for equality and freedom of expression, while urging members of ALL races to be proud of their heritage. On this show, we will discuss, in great detail, those very programs, so please tune in.
Joining me, your Host and the Voice of American White History Month and Prepare To Take America Back, James Royster, will be none other than Marshall Nicely the Founder of AWHM and PTTAB and Roxy Lady who, together, have spent the past 3 years breathing life into these two organizations. PTTAB, as this show will explain, is the political voice and sister site of American White History Month.
We'll speak with you then. May God Bless you all and may God Bless America!
