National Family History Month 2014 Geneameme

NHFM GeneamemeNow I’m back on my blogging feet I felt the need for a meme….after all, it’s ages since we had one! What better time than National Family History Month (NFHM)? Tucked away in the Top End I don’t have quite the smorgasbord of options available interstate, so this is my contribution.

Here goes, who wants to meme with me? I’ll collate the answers in a couple of weeks to give you time to participate around other events…hopefully it will be fun, easy and quick to complete.

  1. I have just got into bed with my iPad & a cup of tea. I was planning to read but thought a quick email fix…..what a great idea, I’ll join you, but not until tomorrow, the genea-girl needs her beauty sleep!


  2. Hi, me again. When ever there is a wordpress login for comments it takes me ages to get it working because I have other wordpress logins for work so sorry it posted the link to your blog as I was cutting and pasting into different browsers to try and get it to post. SORRY!!! Please delete/edit all unnecessary commenting. Thanks.

    Anyway my comment:

    Hi Pauleen, I did one. My first ever I think. Thanks for starting this, Fran


    1. No problems Fran. Great you have been able to participate in this meme…and your first too! I found your responses extremely interesting. I think we’ll see a lot of diversity across people’s responses.


      1. I see from your Meme you had problems with Gedcom imports, you can always ping me a message or ask on and with the plugins it’s often possible to bring every thing in as long at it’s in the gedcom somewhere.,


    1. I absolutely loved your fresh approach to this meme and your exuberance and enthusiasm for family history! Other readers would thoroughly enjoy Caitlin’s video on the meme – she made me smile throughout with her evident love of genealogy. Thanks Caitlin!

  3. Now that’s good timing – from Monday I’ve got two weeks off work so I’ll be able to take part then – hope that’s not too late, Pauleen. Mind you, I’m planning to catch up on sleep as well…


    1. Thank you so much for doing it too Chris, when you are so busy with Clare activities for which you are the guru! I encourage other readers to check out the Clare group’s activities and read the Clare Library site, one of my favourites for all that I didn’t mention it 😉
