Are You My Cousin?: Pickles, Books and John White

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Pickles, Books and John White

Last week was an exciting week around here.  It all started with.....

Pickles.  DH found out he won the "pickle guessing" contest at the NC state fair earlier this month.  You know the contest - the one where you guess how many baby pickles are in the enormous jar.  We are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of his pickle prize pack. (Try saying that three times fast!)  I'm just hoping the prize pack does not arrive in an 18 wheeler delivery truck.

The excitement progressed onto....

Books.  I was notified later in the week that I had won a daily prize from BlogHer for participating in the NaBloPoMo.  This is the challenge I have taken to post to my blog every day for the month of November.  I am waiting for books from Penguin (Publishers) to arrive.  I love to read and am thrilled to have won books.

And then....

John White.  You knew there had to be some genealogy in here somewhere.  I was contacted by another White researcher who provided some wonderful clues to research regarding my ancestor John White of Surry County, NC.

Top all of this off with fall leaf color at its peak.  It truly was an exciting week!
