Saturday Night Fun Thanksgiving Memories

1) We just celebrated Thanksgiving in the USA, and many of us have celebrated it every year for decades.  For this SNGF, please share a favorite Thanksgiving memory - it can be sentimental, humorous, reflective, etc.

2)  Share your Thanksgiving memory with us in your own blog post

I don't remember any favorite Thanksgiving, mostly we went to my grandmother Kelly's house for Thanksgiving. We had turkey, stuffing, vegatables, mashed potatoes, gravy and pie. Most everyone had pumpkin, but I did not like pumpkin so my grandmother would bake something else for me, usually apple pie. As my grandmother got older she stopped the pies, so mom made the pies then, and I even learned to bake the pumpkin pie. Everyone said it was good, but I still could not eat it.

Saturday Night Fun Timeline for Hans Kristin Mikkelsen

1) Have you created a Timeline for one of your ancestors using a genealogy software program (e.g., Family Tree Maker, RootsMagic, Legacy, Reunion, etc.) or an online family Tree (e.g., Ancestry Member Tree, FamilySearch Family Tree, Geni, MyHeritage, etc.), or in a spreadsheet (e.g., Excel) or in a word processor table?

2)  If not, try to create a timeline using the program/website of your choice.  If so, create another one for the ancestor of your choice!

3)  Show us your Timeline creation, and tell us how you did it.  Which program/website did you use, the process you used, and how you captured the images to display your timeline.

Well I used Ancestor Quest  version 14 to create a timeline, just went to reports and printed to a text file which I will post below.

Saturday Night Fun Collections

1)   Most of us collect dead ancestors and relatives now - what did you collect when you were a child or teenager?

2)  Tell us about your collections in a blog post of your own.

Well I collected coins, pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, and fifty cent coins. I guess I got that from my dad as he collected postcards, and coins also, his collection is a lot bigger than mine was, and he had a lot of foreign coins he collected when he was in WWII.

Veterans Day 2014

I have posted previous Veterans Day tributes here so this year I am posting a picture of the 354 Service Squadron that my dad was in in WWII.

My dad had picked up this photo at one of the reunions he went to, he said he did not remember it being taken, or where or when it was taken. Captain Maloy was a spit and polish captain so that is why all were in uniform and ties. For a group that serviced B-17 and B-24 bombers keeping spit and polished was a lot of work. They started out at Geiger AFB and had basic training in Ephrata, Washington, then on to England, and spent most of the war in North Africa before going to Italy. After the surrender in Europe they were put on a ship heading to Japan, and were in the Panama Canal when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. They headed to San Francisco and before they got there the second bomb had been dropped and Japan surrendered. So at San Francisco they asked the men if they wanted to stay in the army or go home. They all went home. As of last count 5 or 6 of the men are still alive.

Saturday Night Fun Beards

1)  This week we're going to look for men's facial hair in our photograph collection.

2)  Find one or more photographs of men in your ancestral families that have facial hair - a mustache and/or a beard.  

3)  Show the photograph if you have it and tell us a bit about the person shown.

Well it took a while but I found a couple of ancestors with beards:

 This is my great grandfather Stanislaus Potoski Dillingham, his wife Eliza Minerva (Hellenbolt) Dillingham (sitting), and their daughter Fredalene Dillingham, sister to my grandmother Anna M. (Dillingham) Hansen.

This is Robert Forsyth and his wife Mary (Williams) Forsyth. Robert was a War of 1812 veteran and is my great-great Grandfather on my moms side.
