Funky Alpha - Bits and Bobs

I'm in such trouble today as I've so much to do having spent ALL day yesterday trying to research my family tree. I joined Ancestry co uk, which after struggling for about 4 hours I finally realised how to search the data. I'm as thick as a plank sometimes. I don't know how June from Cen's Loft does it, AND does all that she does AND finds the time to create kits and freebies. June, genealogist extraordinaire, if you are reading this I take my hat off to you.

I am now the proud owner of a little family tree that goes back to 1871 on my Mom's maternal side and 1841 on her paternal side. doesn't sound very far back but I'm so pleased with my progress. I do believe that genealogy (posh name for researching family trees) and scrapping, compliment each other. After all it's all about recording the moment or moments gone by.

Today after posting I have to catch up on the housework, buy groceries for the week, fix my car, as it's been playing up and not starting ever since going through three flood a couple of weeks ago. It probably just needs a spray of WD40 on the points or carburetor thingamabob hopefully. Plus I want to send of for some birth and marriage certificates from the Records Office for my new passion.

Anyhow .... here is the final installments of my little Funky Alpha. I hope you have enjoyed my humble attempt. I have loved every comment you have left me, I can't tell you how uplifting it is to be thanked. Thank you in return for all those that did.

  1. Hi Susie!
    Thanks so much for this addition to your cute alpha! Wishing you much luck on the family tree project, I've thought about doing it, but haven't found the time. Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. Hi... this is my first time to your blog.. I wanted to thank you for the alpha. I would love to do a family tree but it is harder than I thought.. and my mother just passed and I have no one to talk to about family long ago.
