Family Reunion Anyone???

So while in the process of restarting my family history research I decided to talk to my grandmother. She has not been very forthcoming with info on her family which is one of the main reasons I was determined to research her side of the family.

Well I go into her room and lo and behold, there is a program for our family reunion from two years ago.

Press pause. Rewind. Hold the phone...

We had a family reunion? Two years ago? AND NO ONE BOTHERED TO TELL ME????

Needless to say, I'm not a very happy camper right now. So I ask my grandma about it and she says, "Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about that." 


So I ask her about the people who organized it. Of course she has no contact info for them. (I think she does but she doesn't want to give it to me.) So I go online to find the myself. I Google'd Clark Family Reunion Charleston, SC. The first result... a Facebook page created to plan the 2012 reunion. It seems like they hadn't posted on the page in a while, so I left a comment on the wall explaining who I am and making sure it was the correct family. Hopefully I will hear back from them soon.

In the meantime, I am still upset with Grandma...

It has been a while...

Okay folks, it has been quite a while since I've posted, but it's time to get back into it. I am in the process of getting my records organized and finding ONE good genealogy program to use for everything. Stay tuned for upcoming posts.

By the way, does anyone have any good programs that they would recommend?
