New Genealogy Website Template

I found this cool new template (#255) for my genealogy website (kldewitt.com/genealogy) and have started to update all my settings to make use of its features.  It’s got some really nice picture handling, especially for the front page, and is super fast/responsive. Check it out if you haven’t already visited the KL DeWitt Family Research Project and let me know what you think of the new layout/color scheme. BTW, if…

Have a Vehicle You Don’t Need Anymore?

When Mom’s 29-year-old Ford decided to stop running and start costing more than it’s worth to repair, we decided to donate it to charity.  After doing some research, we landed on Disabled American Veterans.  Both of Mom’s husbands had been Marines, one of whom had lifetime injuries while serving, and many others in our family have served, so it fit our family’s sensibilities nicely. If you go to the DAV…

Wow – Just Wow…

To date, I haven’t seen the comedy series Miracle Workers. However, after catching their season 3 Oregon Trail promo showing Daniel Radcliffe dragging/vogue-ing to “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain,” I may just have to go back and binge this one from season 1.  (He’s sure kept himself in good shape since his Harry Potter days!  LOL)  And I didn’t realize Steve Buscemi was in it, too.  He’s always great!…

My New Book – Sudoku For Kids Cute Numbers Edition

I love playing Sudoku, so decided my first digital/printable book would be based on that.  I also love colorful critters, so I used cute number “characters” as the basis for the puzzles, especially since this one’s aimed at beginners.  (Or big kids like me.) The book is available on Etsy.  You’ll then get 4 downloadable PDF files, 2 puzzle ones and 2 solutions ones.  You can print 1 puzzle or…

The Bureau of Magical Things

Since I finished Lucifer Season 5B and Manifest, and will have to wait months (or forever in Manifest’s case) to watch more of each, I went looking for something to keep me amused while I work.  (BTW, I can’t wait till this Wednesday to see how Loki winds up.) Documentaries on Netflix are great, but I’ve seen most of the ones that look interesting.  Sometimes two or three times, each……

That Was Easier Than I Thought

This evening, I decided to see if I could find out more about one set of my Danish 4x great-grandparents by looking at their kids’ records.  I figured I could maybe back into some of their facts that way.  It’s worked before, finding a nugget or two in the next generation’s info… First, I tried to find marriage records for their son, Anders Peter Nicolaisen.  I know he was married…

#SaveManifest

While trying to survive the hell the Pacific Northwest turned into this last weekend, I decided to binge the TV show Manifest. I had seen the first season quite a while back when it first came to Netflix but had gone on to other shows, like Lucifer, while waiting for season 2 to drop someday. So imagine my surprise to find out now there was not only a season 2,…

Loki – Another Winner from the MCU

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:   While I wait for LUCIFER Season 6 to drop on Netflix (hopefully not too many months from now), it appears that Disney / Marvel Studios has come up with a great show to fill the time. Loki may be a lying, mischievous, back-stabbing, pretender God, but as played by Tom Hiddleston, you want to cut him a little slack.  Maybe more than a little slack when he…

Another Family Tree Breakthrough!

Yippee!  Not only did I figure out who Hans Peder Nielsen’s parents were finally, but today I figured out his wife’s lineage after close to 8 long years!!  That gives me 29 out of my 32 2x great-grandparents’ info…  Just 3 left to figure out to have my first 62 direct ancestors or 4 generations nailed down. My 2x great-grandma’s American records list her as Maren Sophie Jensen in almost…
