Tribulations on Writing

As the title states, I am have tribulations on what next to post about my large lineage. I want to make my writings here to sound just like me. A simple person, with simple sounding language as a Kentuckian sounds like. With having a natural comprehension problem in some areas of understanding written directions on developing my site to look like those who I follow. They themselves have wonderful looking sites with categories, drop down menu’s. At present tonight I have spent 1 and a half hours going back over all the settings, seeing where I did not add certain things and making a few changes. I am not by any means unintelligent, I am like many people who has to be shown how to do certain things. I have been writing for well over 15 years on my own on my computer prior to me seeking counseling for memories that unlocked their selves from the locked doors in my brain in 2006.

I had a 500 page book on my old Windows 98 computer and lost all of it except 100 pages. Yes, it was traumatic to me, so I hurriedly printed off what was left and it still lays there in a small box with a plastic cover to this date until I can re-type all of it again then get it published.

With starting this blog about my ever so large family tree, while still researching them plus checking Ancestry DNA and Gedmatch and even the Genetic aspect of my own DNA, well let’s just say I have my fingertips in many bowls so to speak.

Many of you know me via Facebook and previously on MYSPACE and earlier then that from the Ancestry message boards. Yes, we go back many years and you each know who you are ! If it were not for you then I would not had learned who all my father’s Taylor lines had married into or with.

Just thinking about the woman in the 1800’s having possibly 13 children, then each of those children having the same or close to the same number, in this day and age is mind-boggling.

Having to raise all those children on what little means they had or in some cases didn’t have, tells me that our Ancestors, the women had very strong backbones to say the least. And no, I will not leave out the men they themselves had the ethics, responsibilities and yes back bone to make sure their families were taken care of.

I myself can not imagine myself in their era and to tell you the truth I would not want too either. Reading was not a passion of mine until I began to find out about the olden days, and researching is something I always did when I worked, no matter what sort of job I held in Finance.

I suppose I am blessed to have the imagination and the automatic aspect of doing research in order to keep up my thirst when it comes to our Ancestors…. Till the next post……

I love to read, love to research family Genealogy, love meeting new relatives and I especially love to read beautiful little stories my friends writes. Have recently completed the Genetics aspect of my personal DNA via 2 separate Companies, Genomelink and Cri Genetics. Is most facinating to prove to your Doctors that your Genetics is the reason why medications do not work as they should and that certain aspect from surgeries needs to be done in a certain way. I was built with multiple overlapping mutations on all 22 chromosomes and my DNA I received via my parents was primarily from my father's mother's from her father's lineage. My blood type is O negative, my mother and 3 sisters are all RH Positive A or AB typing. So after 43 years of arguing with all doctor's I finally have the proof to visually show them. Life is grand and Live your Life to the Fullest as if it were your last day to live.As of today 14 May 2021 this is my update. My lineage from both sides of my parents does cross over with eachother in the mid to late 1900's.My Mother grew up in Louisville Ky and my father grew up in Bell, Harlan counties regions of S.E. Ky. Edogamy is relative on both sides of my family. 1st and 2nd cousins do fall with in both branches going back to the late 1800's for marriage and they never even knew it. Knowing where you come from will let you know if you married within your own genetic line !
