That was certainly the case with the Irish line of my family tree. In episode 18 of my YouTube video series Elevenses with Lisa I enlisted the help of professional genealogist Kate Eakman of Legacy Tree Genealogists. In that 45 minute consultation she broke things wide open on my Irish family lines and gave me the information and resources I needed to make substantial progress. It’s the best investment I’ve made in my genealogy in a long time. They have experts in all areas. Learn more about how easy it is to . . During the consultation we spent significant time digging into Irish genealogy websites. However, I think you'll find Kate's approach to brick walls helpful and informative even if you don't have Irish ancestors. (The consultation doesn't lend itself to an audio podcast because we spent a lot of time digging into websites. ) After my consultation I updated my research plan and got to work collecting more genealogical evidence.

The guys begin Family Histoire News with the eyebrow raising story that the last Civil War widow has died! Catch the details on the show, plus the fact that her husband, who died in 1939, was already a great great grandfather. David suggests it is possible that this widow was a step FIFTH great grandmother at the time of her death! Fisher and David then talk about sharing DNA from their own fifth great grandparents who were born in the 1600s with other DNA testers. Next David notes a story about how women in Texas who couldn’t start their own business without their husband’s permission until 1968. Finally, a researcher has located a 97-year-old former World War II pilot who saved her father’s life through his skills in ditching a plane.

Living 24/7 with your spouse or family, peacefully

After all, it wasn't exactly easy in a large home when the kids were in school and we had plenty of time apart. In this podcast, we both come to the table with three ideas that may help you when traveling or getting through quarantine! To participate in the conversation, go to https://www.keepyourdaydream.com/111/ Topics discussed: * The Golden Rule does not apply to relationships * What are you bringing to the table? * Have important conversations about what you need, when you don't need it! * Creating personal space even when space is limited * Have a premeditated plan for how you will respond to avoid reacting * Focus on the bright spots Books Mentioned in this Podcast: As Trish mentioned in this podcast, what are you bringing to the table? Meaning, what are we learning and focusing on to move the conversation forward?

106.1 WJRW-FM/1340am The Ticket West Michigan's Sports Leader
The Huge Show - January 25th - Full Show
Throughout the entirety of the show today we wanted to talk about those great AFC/NFC games that came out of the weekend as the Bucs are set to take on the Chiefs in the Championship game! We also broke down some big news out of the Detroit Lions Organization that Matthew Stafford will be parting ways with the team. We talked about how this all came about, where we see him going, and who we see replacing him. We also talked about the most recent 2 week pause to hit the University of Michigan as there is a new variant of Covid-19 that the school and athletic department want to steer clear of – despite the state of Michigan not providing proof that this “variant” is really the threat they’re saying it is. In our first hour we were joined by Mike O’Hara so he could tell us everything he knows about the Stafford situation. He and Huge talked about how the announcement caught them off guard and talked about how all of this happened. In our second hour we were joined by Chris Balas to get his thoughts on all that’s happening throughout the University of Michigan as it pertains to the new “variant” of Covid. We were then joined by Tony Ortiz to get his thoughts on Stafford leaving the Lions and where he thinks Matt might end up. In our final hour we were joined by Logan Lamorandier to get his thoughts on Stafford as well. Logan told us how this caught him off guard and also said that it’s probably time for this to happen. We wrapped up the show with our friend Frank Schwab to look talk about the NFL games from the weekend and to look ahead to the big game! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
