I am using this blog to keep the family (and any one else interested) updated on my family history research. As a warning to readers, I will show bias and opinions in my posts – I just can’t help myself. As I am a family historian I do not censor, (do you know what your children are reading online?), or sugarcoat anything I find regarding my ancestors, so if you don’t like what you read, don’t blame me blame your ancestors. (NOTE: I do make sure that the person of interest, their spouse and children are dead before sharing any scandalous material.)
So everyone can enjoy our family photographs, I have a FLICKR site where all family related images are free to download. I also have an instagram account under the name jenbumann, where I upload a pic a day, hashtag #jensancestors. For cool videos that might pop up check out my YouTube Channel. I haven’t really made full use of this account, yet.
Keeping up with modern genealogical research techniques I have family DNA results involved in JOHN, SHEPARD, and CAIN DNA surname projects at FamilyTreeDNA.
And last, but not least, here is my web site My John and Shepard Ancestors.
If you think you’re related, don’t hesitate to contact me as I look forward to meeting long lost cousins and sharing what I have found…as long as you reciprocate.
(The image in my blog header is of a picnic celebrating a family event. Elza Shepard and Jane (Buchanan) Shepard are at the far end of the table looking on their descendants towards the camera.)
