My Sister...the Master...


For those of you that know me, you know that I have many sisters...all of which have oodles and oodles of talent. One is a Cake Master (my hero) one is a Photography Master, one a videographer/movie-maker, one a hair and cake master (among other things), and one is an awesome artist.
Here is a story of the talent of one such sister:

Not only is Rebecca an insanely gifted and talented seamstress (you should see the blessing outfits she makes!) but she is also the Genealogy MASTER. She is a teacher at the local college in Maryland and also lectures at genealogy seminars. She came to visit about a week ago and we got to go to the Family History Library for 2 days straight. It was like a one-on-one Genealogy Conference! Rebecca is an amazing teacher with the ability to inspire, motivate and have you retain the information that you have been given. It was a blast! Who thought genealogy could be a blast?! It really is exciting. It's not just genealogy, it's American history and it's detective work. It's amazing to be able to take the clues that you have found on this person and piece them together to find where and who they were what they probably did every day.

Thanks Becca, you are the best. I wanna be just like you when I grow up! :)

That is awesome. What a talent and blessing to be so driven in the area of genealogy. I can't seem to motivate myself.

I need that kind of one on one time! I really need to get started on Paul's family.
