National Archives
When studying your genealogy, you will need to do extensive research. You can get tons of research tips and tricks, search census and immigration records, or join nationwide workshops with the National Archives website.

Family Search
This site combs through public records to find the information you need. It will even perform international searches.
The organization has a network of more than 4,500 facilities that offer genealogical records to the public. Just enter your city, state, postal code and country to find the nearest center to you.

Ellis Island Foundation
From 1892 to 1954, more than 12 million immigrants were greeted by the Statue of Liberty as they entered America through Ellis Island. In fact, it's estimated that nearly 40 percent of all American citizens can trace at least one ancestor to the famous New York Harbor.

This site helps you create a map out your family tree. You can start adding family members manually, or upload your existing GEDCOM files. Then, you can add photos, family events and birthdays, or conduct your own research with the research tab. - See more at:

Genealogy Today
When you want to find out about your heritage, check out Genealogy Today. You can search a large database with more than 6,000 transcripts from funeral notices, school records, insurance claims, prison records and church member lists.

Family Village
Family Village is a Facebook game from Zygna that will help you discover and add new family members, much like Farmville. You can discover new family members, assign your ancestors jobs in your virtual town, or find historical documents and other records.

Hint: picture was taken in 1956.
It's a hard disk drive back in 1956... With 5 MB of storage.

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first 'SUPER' computer
with a hard disk drive (HDD).
(Computers before and after for many years used tape drives--less efficient, but much less costly)
The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a 'whopping' 5 MB of data.

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!"
His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?
The son replied, "I do know!"
"Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?"
"That's easy, Daddy..." the young boy replied excitedly," It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan Tribute -- Bel Air Presbyterian Church - YouTube

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
