Are You My Cousin?: What I Was Up To During the Holidays

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Name:
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

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!

What I Was Up To During the Holidays

Back in the fall months, I opened Esther's Place - Heritage Gifts by Lisa.  (You can view a slide show of some of my gift ideas on my sidebar.)  I have had a lot of fun creating personalized gifts using my customers' own photographs.  I have worked with some amazing photographs and heard the fun stories that go along with them.

I stepped outside my comfort zone (way outside my comfort zone) and participated in two local craft shows.  I had so much fun participating in these shows.



I wonder what my ancestors would say about all of this.  After all, I use their photographs (copies, of course) in my samples.  Would they say "Way to go!"?  Or would they say "I can't believe you are using that photograph of me.  Look at my hair!"

A belated thank you for the wine charms - my kids LOVED them and have even asked for your information to pass on to their friends!

Great job! I love it and what I love most is that you are sharing genealogy with the non-genealogist in a way they can appreciate!
