Research Notes 2020-12-14

Research Notes

We had a wedding in our family this last weekend. Our cousin Lisa married her childhood best friend. Both of them grew up together in the Panama Canal Zone. We attended the wedding and reception via Zoom. Why? There were so many Canal Zone friends who came to the wedding that we locals gave them first “dipps” to spend time with old friends. Right now the newlyweds are enjoying a few days in North Carolina at the Biltmore.


The RootsTech Connect online conference takes place on February 25-27, 2021. There will be a full schedule of classes, speakers and events. That’s not all! After the conference you will have access to all the videos and recordings made during the conference.

RootsTech Connect costs you nothing. You do need to register so you can attend. All that takes is stopping by the RootsTech website ( and fill out the registration form. There is also a free RootsTech app available at your app store. Early next year the app will be updated to show what classes will be available so you can choose the ones you want to attend.


The Nativity in a Walnut

Can you imagine a creche inside a walnut shell? This is one of the many delightful Christmas ornaments and decorations we collected while we were stationed in Germany. You are looking at this little treasure via my Day One journal. Each ornament we brought back from Germany has their own photo and story. Thanks to Day One, I can share these treasures and other family “jewels” with the younger generation along with stories describing what makes them so special. Day One also makes it easy to create and publish a book from a selection of journal entries.
