A New Year

Today I decided to keep one of my New Year’s resolutions and start posting to my genealogy blog again. If I expand the scope a bit, I certainly have plenty of topics to discuss. Let’s see how it goes in the next few days.

Unfortunately, I’ve done very little in the way of research in the past several months. My main activities in the genealogy world have centered on support for the IT department at the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) in Burbank.

One labor of love for me at the SCGS is organizing the RootsMagic software user group. We meet on the third Sunday of most months. The focus of the next meeting will be the newly-released RootsMagic 5 and early user experiences with it. My first order of business is to migrate to the new version from RootsMagic 4 and get some experience with it myself.

    My greatgrandmother was Ida Grace Holladay who married Eli Nelson Collins. She lived in Hinds County Mississippi, but sometime in the 1890’s they moved to Grant Parish Louisiana. I believe her father was Morris Holladay. Ida
    Grace had a sister Clarissa Hale (born in 1855), a brother Adam (born in 1864). Morris was born around 1839. Ida was born in 1862. That’s about all I know about her. If you have info email me at durandw@hsu.edu. Thanks

    Yes, it’s about to become active again. I’ve been pretty overwhelmed in recent months by volunteer activities at the Southern California Genealogical Society. I’ve finally managed to recruit some great help for some of the Information Technology activities which have been taking a lot of my time and energy. More later.
