One morning I received an email from for a free something. I spent a couple of hours researching my family tree and it was so much fun. Sadly, I can't afford to join right now to go much further. But I will keep adding to it as I can. So much fun!

To help with all of this, my Aunt Sunny has 400 page book of that has my mom's family tree described in detail. And my cousin has also compiled a wonderful book for the native American side from my dad's side. 

This DailyOm post made me think of that today. 

 "Our ancestors represent another wellspring from which we may draw for they, too, can act as our spirit guides. 

Many entities assume the role of spirit guide. Throughout our lives, we may call upon angels, animal and nature spirits, ascended masters, and celestial guardians for aid, protection, and support. Our ancestors represent another wellspring from which we may draw wisdom in times of need for they, too, can act as our spirit guides. Since our forbears spent at least one lifetime experiencing the tribulations that are a part of human existence, the perspective they can offer is a uniquely grounded one. Ancestral spirit guides can empathize with our fears and our frailties, worry, temptation, and feelings of insecurity. Once you have requested their guidance, they will see to it that you emerge unscathed on the far side of conflicts and are well-equipped to fulfill your potential."

Kim, The summer before last, while I was not working, I began to get into my family tree. I took what I already knew and went to the LDS Genealogical Library at their church in Mountlake Terrace. They have volunteers there to help you, and what's best, is that you can access all those files from for FREE! Not to mention that they have alot more than just that you can use. I would suggest that if you go, bring a thumb drive with you. There are things you can download and take home with you to do additonal work at home. I went several times that summer, but haven't been back. One day I will go again, though! I'm in no way affiliated with the church, but it's an amazing resource. Call before you go, they have special hours.
