Childhood Memory Monday – Green Machine

Monday, 11 Jan 2010 | by Mark Tucker

 

Here is something new I am trying here at ThinkGenealogy.  It’s called Childhood Memory Monday.  This is where I share something memorable from my childhood.  Sometimes I will present lessons learned or ponder why a certain memory is still “living” when so many have been forgotten.

Now, lets get rolling.

Back in the time when Big Wheels ruled the street (Did you own a Big Wheel?), a new challenger appeared…

Puzzle the Past

Monday, 27 Jul 2009 | by Mark Tucker

As genealogists we spend many hours unpuzzling the past of our ancestors.  Maybe we should spend some time puzzling it!

A great way to share the past with the next generation of family historians is to create picture puzzles of ancestor photos.  One tool that can do this is a web site called PuzzleTouch.

After going to http://puzzletouch.com/ click the Create Puzzle button in the section on the right:

Create Puzzle

The next screen asks you to upload a photo.  This is a picture of my grandmother when she was a little girl in Largo, New Mexico.  The family lovingly refers to her as the “Largo Kid”.

Ancestry.com Name Change Comic

When Dick Eastman announced that The Generations Network changed its name back to Ancestry.com, I thought of this comic.  All in good fun.

My Great Grandfather Cartoonized

Friday, 12 Jun 2009 | by Mark Tucker

Two days ago I discussed my new cartoon profile picture and talked about my interest in making a cartoon version of one of my ancestors.  One of my favorite ancestors is my great grandfather, Worth Tucker.  I have few pictures of him and what I do have is the result of too much photocopying.  The picture is grainy.

For this cartoon, I decided to do it all myself without the middle step of the Cartoon Me website.

Here are both the original photo and the cartoon version:

Bumper Stickers for Genealogists

Sunday, 24 May 2009 | by Mark Tucker

Going along on a similar car train of thought as the genealogy license plates here and here, I created some sayings for genealogy-related bumper stickers.  As far as I know these are original creations:

  • My Fred is dead. Is yours?
  • My Cherokee princess ancestor is more documented than your Cherokee princess ancestor.
  • Researching your ancestors is a grave pastime.
  • Genealogy is so much fun people are dying to help you out.
  • Slow down; you could be my 3rd cousin twice removed.
  • Genealogists are strong; they break through brick walls.
  • Genealogy is all around. Just look at the evidence.
  • I’m tops on my ahnentafel!
  • No kidding! You are also President Obama’s fourth cousin once removed?
  • Mission Genealogical: microfilm is not just for spies.
  • Citing sources is so exciting.

As a genealogist or family historian, what would you want on a bumper sticker?

BONUS:

You know when you are driving behind a genealogist when …

… the SUV in front of you has the entire back window covered with white stick-people stickers to form a 4-generation pedigree chart.

 

NOTE: I created this post a few days ago while I was still on a roll with the license plates.  My plan was to post it on Tuesday after the holiday weekend.  Then along comes Randy Seaver with his Saturday Night Genealogy Fun — Create a Bumper Sticker challenge so I’ve decided to post this now.  Technically it is now early Sunday morning (its just after midnight) but I have been working all night on an article for Digital Genealogist and just saw Randy’s post.  No time now to Photoshop bumper stickers, maybe another day.  Hopefully I can make up for it with quantity.
