    Genealogy Research at the Amite Branch Library

    in Family

    This past Friday my cousin Edwin Temple and I spent sometime conducting genealogy research on the Temple, Vining, Harrell and Richardson Family. On the second floor at the Amite Branch Library you will find a genealogy library and archival room. We spent most of our time looking in old books and looking at photographs.
    A couple of years back, a former school teacher named Mrs. Grace Walker Perry donated a photograph album of African American pioneers, educators and other programs can be found in the album.
    Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special Edwin Temple for this upcoming discussion on African American Genealogy Research in Amite, Louisiana.

    The Importance of History in Genealogy Research

    in Entertainment

    Tonights show takes on an important Topic; of the historical backdrop in Genealogy.  Genealogy is a word used to describe a line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor to you. There are direct ancestors and others on the branch who are blood relatives. For me Genealogy is not only locating ancestors but profiling them through the historical context in which they lived. This is important especially with Native and African Ancestors whose history is mirred with movements they had no control over.

    THE AUTHORS WORDS on the World Of Ink Network

    in Books

    JD Holiday talks with the author Debbie Roppolo. She is the author of many short stories including being published in Chicken Soup for the Coffee Lover's Soul, and Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.  Klutzin’Around the Christmas Tree was the title for an anthology. In 2011 Debbie published her first children's book, Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving, Overactive Imagination which she patterned the character "Amelia" after her own childhood. In 2013, Amelia Frump...is Cooking Up a Peanut Butter Storm won second place in the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. Her book, He's My Brother focuses on how siblings sometimes feel alone after a diagnosis of autism.


    After Debbie's son, Joseph was diagnosed with autism, she felt the need to raise awareness about the disorder and become an advocate through her writing. Doing research and conversations with her older son Jonathan, she discovered that siblings sometimes feel alone after a diagnosis of autism. There is little focus on their thoughts and emotions, and they are are forced to cope alone.


    He's My Brother was written with the intent of bringing awareness to this situation in addition to supplying information about autism.
