The Connor History

It's no surprise that along with doing our family history I also enjoy making Heritage Makers scrap books to tell the stories.

The new and exciting part is now I can share those books online with all of you.

Today I'd like to share a book that I made last year that I am so proud of. This is the story of my husband's Connor family. The Connors were his mother's mother's family. They came to California by way of Oklahoma, Texas and Arizona while working in the fields. Life was not easy for them, especially during the depression and during the time in history when Native American were misstreated since they were Native American.

So here it is. Please enjoy it. Also I have had a few of you in the Connor family that wanted a copy of this. I can order you a copy at any time, just let me know. The cost is $50.94 plus shipping.

Three more weeks!

I'll be back to my usual self here soon. I have three more weeks left of work. It's time to come back home and do what I love. Money is always tight. It doesn't matter if I work or not. By the time I pay the baby sitter and put gas in my car I have so little left of my paycheck. I don't know of anyone who enjoys working for a mere $100 a week, give or take. So I've decided it's time to do what I love to do.

I think I will be placing ads out there offering my services for research. I also plan to spend some time quilting and maybe even sell some of my quilts on ebay. I'm sure between the two I can supplement our income while still being at home with my children.

I look forward to hearing from everyone again, and getting back into the genealogy circles.
