SONS of LIBERTY From HistoryChannel & Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors

As Americans, we study our history from elementary school through college.  It was always one of my favorite subjects through every level of study.  I even considered becoming a History teacher. 

As a reader, historical novels, biographies and auto biographies are at the top of my list.  As a Family Historian/Genealogist, my interest and knowledge of American History has increased immeasurably...thanks to the research, documentation and writing done for my Family Tree.

From the beginning, I knew I would concentrate Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors from the time they arrived in America, and was surprised to learn they were among the first Colonial Settlers in Jamestown, Virginia.  I owe so much to other family genealogist who laid the ground work and shared their research on Ancestry.com. 

Being a stickler for organization and having a background in Timeline Graphics, Creative Writing and enough technology skills to navigate the world wide web, has served me well.  Without them, I would not have known my Colonial Ancestors were active participants in the American Revolutionary War as members of the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.

You can imagine how interested I am in this months History Channel presentation 'Sons of Liberty'.
I have visited their promotional Website.  It is well worth a visit to see the preview photos, but most importantly are the Historical Topics offered.  Here is the link:

  2. When my book club read A Tale of Two Cities, I got interested in de Tocqueville and his take on America just under a hundred years after the American Revolution. I love history, too!

  3. Hi Sue,

    It is interesting to go back in time to find out where your roots are planted. (I'm a descendant of Jim Bowie!)

  4. Interesting facts to find out about your ancestors! Our oldest son Jeremy loves history and his degree is in history and communications! There isn't too much he can't talk about! I sure love seeing you here. Have a great week and thanks for this share.
