This is the Face of Genealogy

In response to a rather insulting picture accompanying a genealogy article in the LA Weeklygeneabloggers is asking us to post pictures of our genealogy, photos of ancestors that we're proud to call family.

This is Molly (VanDyke) Stephens (22 Jan 1877-20 Mar 1944), my 2nd Great-Grandmother, who appears to be a bit camera shy:

Here's a photo of what she looks like when she's not trying to hide from the camera:

Sorry About the Lack of Posts...

I am currently experiencing blogging writer's block. I have posted much of substance in the past two weeks. If anyone wants me to write a particular topic, let me know in the comments here. I genuinely want your ideas or even just posting some questions people have been wondering about me or genealogy.

Now, some business related things:

Since closed their Expert Connect service, I haven't gotten many jobs from what I've done so far. I still haven't gotten a job yet, so I just don't have the money to maintain their monthly world service. I was afraid of this happening when they announced its closure frankly.

So, I've made the decision to cancel my subscription for the month of June as of Monday. I'm not going to stop blogging on genealogy related topics and I'm still open for people asking me about doing projects for them.

Once I have a research job contracted or possibly once July rolls around, then I will most likely get my subscription again. When I'm considering going back to school in London in the fall, I need to save every penny that comes my way from the little bit of savings I have.
