Here's the page and the scrapbooking process video. Enjoy. This page is about who the mother of my great grandmother, Ellen Louise Joyce, is: Mary O'Brien who was listed in my baby book or Mary Shutters who Ancestry DNA shows I'm super connected to DNA wise. I don't know the answer yet but this page gave me the opportunity to make notes so when I revisit this issue I can remember what I knew right now. Continue reading

Genealogy Guessing: Who is Ellen's mother? MARY JANE O'BRIEN or MARY SHUTTERS? My great grandmother is ELLEN LOUISE JOYCE (1886-1968) who lived in Attleborough, Massachusetts and who married CHARLES LEO FLAVIN (1889-1964) also of Attleborough, Massachusetts. Ellen Louise Joyce's father was WILLIAM JOYCE (1863-19??). According to the 1990 Census of... Continue reading

We had another un-photographed adventure with Debbie Hodge on the river which included talking up Mainahs and ill-advised jumping off railroad bridges (not it); and fabulous rope swing jumping - which Debbie lead the pack with her bravery! After leaving Debbie and New Hampshire (sniff, sniff - we had so much fun), we did the human hamster balls (so exciting) in Massachusetts and then drove through the night back to Philadelphia. Continue reading

York, Maine was delightful - I'd never been there before - but we weren't going to be able to get all the way up to Bangor, Bar Harbor or Calais, Maine (places where I grew up), so we went over the Maine border about a 1/2 hour and found a very friendly beach with Candlepin bowling, a Fun O Rama, lots of rocks to climb and a lighthouse down the street with one of the best lobster rolls of the trip. Plus! Today when I went back to work I was delighted to see that on my screensaver was the exact lighthouse that we saw in York, Maine! Continue reading

Another favorite days of the trip - this was the day that Debbie Hodge, her son, and Allison and I kayaked down the river to an island, then walked through the woods to a waterfall which we then bravely went down on our bottoms! And then a long walk back through the woods and country roads - barefoot - to her house. And we didn't even get any pictures of that adventure! We topped off the day with a trip in to Portsmouth for lobster rolls and a stroll through a cemetary where I found one of my great-grandma's graves and at the exact same moment Debbie got the message on her iphone that Two Peas in a Bucket was closing - definately a memorable moment for me as a family historian and scrapbooker! Debbie and her family were wonderful hosts and we decided to stay on for several days in her beautiful New Hampshire woods on the river. Continue reading

Ok so I think Plymouth was actually day 8 in the evening but I ended up putting the photos with Salem which was Day 9. Salem is a charming little city; Plymouth Rock is sort of underwhelming. We have family ancestor connections to both places. Continue reading

We took the ferry from New Bedford to Martha's Vineyard for another one of our very favorite days of the trip. Our family history goes back centuries on this island - and I loved seeing Allison discover it - even if she wasn't all that interested in the family history of it. We rode the Flying Horses, played with a live scallop in the ocean near the lighthouse in Edgartown, buried Allison in sand shaped like a mermaid tale and even got all the way in to the freezing ocean at South Beach and wandered around the Gingerbread Houses. It was a completely delightful day that we wished we could extend for the whole summer. It is definately on our bucket list to take a week or two vacation in Martha's Vineyard someday - and Allison says she's going to buy a house here one day. I hope she does! Continue reading

We spent the first part of the day with my aunt on her goat farm and I took lots of photos of her old family scrapbooks - she has the motherload of Fenderson and Grieve albums; and the second part of the day we spent walking down memory lane in Padanaram, Massachusetts where I spent much of my childhood.

I spent some time photographing old family treasures at my aunt's house, she will be moving soon. And then we drove from Philadelphia to Mystic, Connecticut - crazy, insane traffic in Connecticut - we got a hotel at 2 am and it took the guy one hour to check us in - long, long day. Continue reading

I'm not sure how I'll scrapbook our 20 day epic summer road trip - chances are I'll make a Shutterfly photo book and do a few scrapbook pages. I took about 9000 photos - I'll qualify that with the fact that I took thousands of photos of my aunts' old family photos - so not all the photos are of the trip - but, still, there are a lot of vacation photos. Here are some from our first day in St. Augustine, Florida: Continue reading

Thanks for the note Amy! I figured it was something like that. I appreciate the feed back. :) Katie.

Do you ever have a great conversation with family about old family stories and then wonder how to get your memories scrapbooked? So I had this phone conversation with my Aunt about a couple dozen topics - including a few stories from the olden days that I wanted to get down immediately. I did the journaling immediately after the conversation and I wrote down the story directly onto a ledger type piece of patterned scrapbooking paper. Then I made the rest of the page - this scrapbook process video shows you my whole real time scrapbooking process for this page: (you tube scrapbook process video uploading now) Continue reading

I created this family history scrapbook pocket page with printouts from the internet of my grandfather, #frankhowardfenderson 's transcripts of cassette tape recordings of This American Life style story hours with other Downeast Storytellers. They did the tapes back in the early 1980s and you can find them at www.mainething.com under Alexander. I just found that History Channel show called Downeast Dickering - and the folks in Calais have mixed reviews - they aren't sure they like it since the host is from "away" and the areas shown on the show aren't actually Downeast - more like the touristy coastal part of Maine closer to "away"! Oh Yeah, Mainahs are wicked particulah about stuff like that. Uh huh. Supplies: Studio Calico, Basic Grey, Crate Paper, American Crafts, October Afternoon, Carta Bella. I did leave that bottom bit of advertising on the red map paper because that sort of tells the story that I'm a story teller / scrapbooker too. I did make a scrapbook process video while making this page: *** Affiliate links for WICKED GOOD MAINAH stuff: Related articles Scrapbook Improv and Using What You Have Available Another Easy Scrapbook Page with 6 Photos: Geocaching The Digi Show Podcast - List of Episodes for PAPER Scrapbookers Scrapbook Replay Video Series!

I found this photo of my grandfather, Frank Howard Fenderson, ( #frankhowardfenderson ) on a group about Calais, Maine on Facebook! I was thrilled because while I have several old family photos, I hadn't ever seen this one from the 1960s before I was born. I used some older October Afternoon letter stickers that really had a retro label motif and some aged ledger scrapbook paper to give the page the retro office vibe. Plus! Check it out: Tanker Desks! I recently was a "guest expert" in the Big Picture Classes class: Organizing Fundamentals with Wendy Smedley and Aly Dosdall - and Wendy saw this photo on my Instagram feed and noticed the Tanker Desk! I think I did a show and tell video on the tanker desk - which is what I now use as my scrapbooking desk! Who knew my grandfather had a whole office full of them back in the sixties?! Tanker Desks are sturdy, economical, and indestructible - and check out the photo - they have the old heavy typewriters on that slide out tray - that is seriously strong! I have a new found love for my antique Tanker Desk which is the heart of my scrapbook space. This is the scrapbook process video of how I made this page: And this is a video about doing family history research online: *** Want to read more posts like this and support this blog without paying anything?

Here is another transcription of a recording of a meeting of the Alexander-Crawford Historical Society. Judging by the numbering of the tapes, this was probably recorded in 1981. People present at the meeting included Jane Dudley, Milly Winchler, Parks Carle, Frank Fenderson, Sammy Saunders, Kay Church, Rachel (Brown) Hamilton, Ethel... Continue reading
The next speaker was Frank Fenderson. "Well, I can tell you a story about Kaye Church's father (Bill Cushing) coming into our office, I think, the summer of 1949, and he said, "Frank, tell me are you any relation to the Fendersons in Crawford?" And I said "How did you... Continue reading
