"Kim Cattrall - Who Do You Think You Are? TV Show"


Tonight... Kim Cattrall stars

in "Who Do You Think You Are" NBC TV Show 8/7C.

Kim unlocks the 70-year-old mystery behind her grandfather's abandonment of his young family. This should be another interesting episode. These shows are great genealogical adventures, that shows a little of how to research and how the information is gathered. If you miss an episode, you can go to NBC.com to see full episodes for this season, as well as, season one.

Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday

Boonville Public Library...
The older Boonville library was the first library outside the school libraries that I had used. The plaque below is on the wall as you enter from the east side of the building. This building was built in 1986.
Below is a commerative plaque of the Boonville Women's Club raising money to establish the Boonville public Library in 1910.

I am at the presentation table about to announce the 2011 Glenda K. Trapp Memorial Award Certificate to Danielle Wire. This award is given annually to 4-H members who have excelled in the 4-H Genealogy Project work. The award is sponsored by the Tri-State Genealogical Society. As the TSGS 4-H Coordinator, I have the honor to present the award. Danielle could not be present... the President of her Degonia 4-H Club, Elizabeth Lewis, accepted the award in her absence. (The photo of Miss Lewis did not come out clear.)

I am dressed in my Revolutionary War Uniform to present another National Award sponsored by the Indiana Society Sons of the American Revolution. I serve as State Chair of the 4-H Youth Awards. The award is a lapel pin for Outstanding Citizenship. The County 4-H organization selects the winner based on Achievement through Community Service, Leadership & Citizenship. This year's winner was the most impressive of those I have presented in the past. Congratulations to Katelyn Mehling of the Lakeside 4-H Club.
