Working on a family tree is a labor of love. It requires patience. Today, my patience paid off. I know who my paternal grandfather is!
My progress on the family tree. I have more DNA to work with. Yay!!
When you find, exactly what you need, when you need it. Words from your father, right before Father's Day.
Koei Tecmo Games announced Dead or Alive 6 on June 8, surprising just about everyone, since no one thought there would be another installment after the release of Dead or Alive 5 back in 2012. The reveal trailer for DOA6…
I ventured outside and my lungs held up well! It was as if I was out of town. So much has changed!
Dear BTS Fans: Could You Please Stop Screaming (Outside of Fan Chants) Long Enough for Us to Hear BTS Sing? Thanks. Bye.
BTS performed the title track, Fake Love, from their new album Love Yourself: Tear for the first time at the Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs). If only we could hear it.
Shani looks so much like my sister. I am going to enjoy either playing as her or having her as part of my crew. The game seems to be developing nicely. I look forward to playing it.
I found out for sure, I am part Chinese. Paper is matching science. I also found out my ancestors were Chinese Jamaicans. And...I found out some of my ancestors were born into slavery but set free. This has been an emotional week for me.
More progress on the family tree. This time I DNA confirmed a family line to the 1830s!
I want to make clear where I stand morally and ethically on some things. When I look in the mirror, I want to smile because I am proud of what I see. Our actions, decision, define us.
Sometimes it is hard to visualize how many grandparents we have. This image shows how many. This does not include cousins!
I was asked about a specific moment in Burn the Stage, episode 3. Let's talk about Jungkook's segment of the episode.
My family tree has over 3000 people in it now. Slowly, I am making progress. Interesting: my maternal and paternal lines seem to share ancestors.
I received a DNA match from South Africa. Their family has been living there a long time. Hopefully, I will be able to figure out some of the brick walls (which are women) that I have in my tree.
J-Hope is off to a pretty good start with "Hope World" and the title track "Daydream".
I've been working on the maternal side of my family tree lately. I recently added 200 people to my tree. Genealogy requires patience.
I am blown away by what I am finding out about my family through DNA matches. I have family in places I would have sworn I didn't.
Working on your family tree is a labor of love. When a DNA match comes in like this, it makes it triple worthwhile!
Here's a guide detailing five radio formats ARMYs should focus on when requesting BTS' songs on US radio
I label all of my DNA matches. I'm glad I take the time to do that because it allows me to spot instances like this: when family lines cross.
Jonghyun's situation was one of those worse case scenarios where someone struggling with depression or a mental illness sought help and was ignored by everyone around them. Hopefully, Jonghyun's death will serve as a wake-up call to people who still think chronic depression is "just a phase".
I cannot put into words how happy it makes me when I receive a new AncestryDNA match and I already know, approximately, where their place on the tree is.
I love Sylvanas. Honestly, I love World of Warcraft lore and their cinematics. This one is wonderful.
Ancestry removed pagination for navigating through DNA matches. I talk about why I think they did this. I don't like it.
Achieving your goals can be challenging in itself. The last thing you need is someone distracting you. Keep your eyes on the price.
Warframe is getting an outside zone! Let's talk about what's coming in the next release. I'm excited for it but I have some concerns.
It's #MusicMonday, so I decided to share this soulful cover of Solange's "Cranes in the Sky".
Since EXO seems to release their music on days when there's a solar eclipse, I think I have a pretty good idea of when their next comeback is going to be.
Aaliyah may be gone, but she hasn't been forgotten in the 16 years following her death.
I strive to make my family tree as accurate as possible. I was shocked that both Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic do not handle source citations, by default, according to standard. You can make it work, but it takes work and knowledge.
