Oldandancient is celebrating her birthday today.
She loves her yellow lab, so I'm posting this as part of her birthday celebration.
Correction. She has a golden retriever, so use your imagination. lol

Not to mention naming them after an object.
It's a Mad Mad Mad World.

oldandancient

Yes, Judy. Girls have boys names, Boys have girls names, both have surnames for first names, etc.

jals

Well, they'd have a heck of a time with all the unusual names people are using now.
Seriously, it is no wonder I can't remember the names of kids in our church. They are all unusuaL.

oldandancient

Also the census takers misspelled because of accents. They spelled names like they heard them.

jals

Names are misspelled and changed spellings.
For example my maiden surname was spelled with 2 r's. Evidently there was a split within the family and one brother broke off and changed the spelling of the last name with only one r.

Wow, wonderful, Donna!!! I'd love to be able to go back in time for a short while, just to see everyone.

I have seen a couple of old pictures on the website and they were the same pictures that I have of my great grandparents, their children and spouses and my Dad as a baby. So I have been in contact with second and third cousins that we never met. My older sister was so into genealogy before the internet. She would hear of people with our last name and find their phone numbers and call them. Most were not related. But she actually wrote to my Dad’s cousin in Michigan by just his name and town. He was no longer alive, but she ended up talking and then eventually visiting his son and wife. They lived on the homestead that my great grandparents built. She would send me old photos. One day she gave me my grandmother Jennie Doucette’s watch. I passed it down to my daughter Jennifer. My grandmother had 8 sisters and they all had the same pin watches. I never met Grandma Jennie. She died of a ruptured appendix in 1910 when my dad was only 7. My sister passed on to me some letters Jennie wrote to her mother-in-law about how the kids were doing. She had 6 kids, one who died a few months before she did. My Dad was the oldest.

Exactly. I had a look at some of the very old records from the early days. You also have to be able to read their writing or decipher letters that are not sharp, etc. Lots of pitfalls. But it can be a lot of fun and the history is definitely very interesting. We got a hold of some very old photos from the early days of our settlers in Canada, on my father's side. Most of our ancestors on the east coast are buried in the same Church cemetary. It's a very small town. There are still relatives there and the church that they go to. My sister even talked to people in the U.S. who were checking out members of our family tree because they thought they might be related, but they weren't. All very interesting for sure!!

oldandancient

Genealogy is slow because names are misspelled, names are the same, but the dates are not right then when you get back to the old country, it can be a real stickler. My daughter has a degree in history and is now working on her masters in library sciences. She wants to make sure she has the correct info before placing the name on the tree. I find info and it turns out she already has that info. My memory is not what it used to be. My daughter remembers everything. I have to keep asking her, “Who was so and so, and when did they move from here to there?”

InConcert35

Doing your geneaology is always fun but time consuming and can be slow moving. My sister did my mother's and it's been stagnant for several years now. My cousin did his mother's also and she is my mother's sister so they compared notes along the way. That was a lot of help.

oldandancient

How interesting, InConcert35. I don't know how common the name is. My daughter and I are doing out geneaology, but most days it's a standstill.

InConcert35

I don't have any Doucettes in my family but my ex's cousin is married to a Doucette. They live in Vancouver, B.C.

oldandancient

@InConcert35
My ancestors name from Canada was Doucette.

InConcert35

Very interesting Donna. I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec and moved to Toronto with my job in '76. Chicago is a pretty city. I've been to a wedding there. My ex, who is originally from Montreal also, lived in Saginaw, Michigan and Des Plaines, Illinois growing up. I've been to both those places to see them.
It's a small world sometimes.

@oldandancient

Same here, Judy, I love cats and dogs but can't have any where I live. It's a no pets building. I did have some growing up. I sometimes daydream of having a little Norwich terrier type. Sigh. Maybe in another lifetime.

oldandancient

Judy, I will email you.

jals

Donna,
I think so too. I bought a new Bible cover and I love it. It's a bright orange floral print. I should make it into a puzzle.
I also bought a case to hold all my colored pencils. That is really handy, instead of having to try and balance the tin box with the plastic trays. I was always dumping them on the floor.
I've been so tired the past couple days, I haven't even done any reading before bed. I turn the light out and I'm asleep.

How are you? Are you still on your beach vacation? I bet you really enjoyed that. 😊

jals

@InConcert35

I agree Robyn. He is adorable. I look at dogs and dream. Hubby does not like dogs or cats in the house. And he doesn't want the extra work of taking care of the dog, and right now I can't do it myself.
Oh well, I love on other people's dogs.

oldandancient

@InConcert35
My great grandparents came from Quebec to the U.P. Michigan in the 1880s. My grandmother was born in Michigan and so was my Dad. Dad moved to Chicago during the Great Depression. I was born in Chicago and raised in that area. Have lived in North Carolina since 1985.

My great grandparents moved to Saskatchewan in the 1920s or 1930s.

InConcert35

That dog is still soooo cute!!! lol
This picture is enough to brighten anyone's day!!!

InConcert35

Oh my gosh, @oldandancient! I'm so sorry I missed your reply!!! I don't know how that happened.
Your ancesters were from Canada? Interesting!! What part of Canada or what city/town. Where are you located in the world?
My father's father is from Leeds, Yorkshire, UK. He moved to Montreal, Quebec, Canada and married my grandmother who is from Megantic, Quebec. And my mother's grandfather is from Guernsey in the Channel Islands. He married a lady from France and later moved to the east coast of Canada where my mother hails from.

It is better to read a verse or two and get something out of it, than trying to read a chapter or two and can't remember anything you read. I know the feeling.

jals

📖
😊❤️

oldandancient

There you go, Judy. And maybe you will finally hear what God is speaking to you.

jals

Donna,
I've done that, too. lol
What I've been doing with my Bible reading, is to read a portion of a chapter, and then read the same passage for another 3 or 4 days to really let it seep into my mind.
Quality over quantity. 😊❤️

oldandancient

Many times I have to read the first chapter or two over again, if that is all I get to read.

jals

I do the same thing. Or if I start a new one, I read a few pages and the next day, I can't remember what it was about.
Maybe the body snatchers took our minds instead. lol

@oldandancient

oldandancient

Thank you, Robyn. A really good childhood friend sent me a gift of the most delicious cookies. So Holly got some and we gave her some ice cream when we had chocolate cake my hubby made. By the way, my ancestors are from Canada.
@InConcert35.

InConcert35

Wishing you a wonderful Birthday and celebration @oldandancient!! ✨🎂🎈✨✨🎂🎈✨
Will your golden retreiver be joining in? Getting a party hat of her own? Having some cake? Yum.
My cousin and her husband used to breed and train golden retreivers. They're such lovely dogs. Nice company!!

InConcert35

Oh my gosh what an adorable dog!! He's soooo cute!

oldandancient

Judy, join us ancient ones. I try to keep my brain going. I read a book and once I start on another one,, I cannot remember the last book I read.

jals

oops, Donna. I did wonder about that. lol
I was thinking that I thought she was a golden receiver and you told me she was a yellow lab.
My mind is not going, it's gone, gone, gone. Goodbye.
Everything shows up on a dark floor. My sister has one and she hates it.

You are very welcome, Donna! ❤️❤️❤️

oldandancient

Thank you, Judy. Holly is a golden retriever and I love her to bits. She sheds tumbleweeds and on a dark floor. Not a good combination. Thank you for the beautiful birthday cards.

Mary and Lyricist, thank you for the birthday wishes. Smiles all day in our house.

Hope it was a great celebration!

Lyricist

Beautiful!!!
