The GOP declares, they're the Party of Lincoln.
If Abraham Lincoln was alive today to defend his good name, he would say, "The GOP acts more like the Party of S#@! Dixiecrats!"


Following the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, Southern states became more reliably Republican in presidential politics, while Northeastern states became more reliably Democratic.
"Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living."

"To get your family tree done the fastest, run for political office. Your opponents will have it completed way before the election, and then you can resign if you really didn't wish to run in the first place."
I don't understand what all the fuss is about getting vaccinated for Covid-19 during a pandemic. No one complained about getting vaccinated for the Flu, Measles, Mumps, Polio, Pneumonia, Smallpox, etc.
Think about the outcome if we didn't have vaccines to protect us.

When I was a child,
I got vaccinated.
When I joined the military,
I got vaccinated.
Before working abroad,
I got vaccinated.
Now I'm confronted with a pandemic,
I wear a mask,
I got vaccinated. (Twice + Booster)

The Recording of a Cemetery
by Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In a heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw there the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lied beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.
*When creating a memorial for a woman that's been married more than once, use the surname that's inscribed on the headstone and let the obituary supply the rest of the information. This helps locating the headstone and lessens chances of being overlooked.

*Memorials are transferred to direct relatives within four generations. This includes your spouse, siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

*Adding a newspaper clipping of the same obituary already digitally formatted in the bio, is redundant and unnecessary.

* Please do not attach death certificates, marriage, military or census records to the memorials I've created. Memorials look best when kept simple and uncluttered.

Everyone has access to these documents on Ancestry.com, Familysearch.org or Fold3.com, for their own personal records.

*Before attaching a photo to a memorial, make sure it's large enough and legible if possible, so people can view it without difficulty. No one wants to look at a photo too small or blurry to see or read.

*If it's not a headstone photo, make sure all other picture files are designated as; person, family or other.
