GENEALOGY LIBRARY NAMED "HOT SPOT" http://www.examiner.net/stories/021905/new_021905026.shtml "In its December 2004 issue, Family Tree Magazine named Independence as one of 11 "Family History Hot Spots" because of the Genealogy and Local History Branch of Mid-Continent Public Library and its popularity with genealogists. What makes the 12,000-square-foot Genealogy and Local History Branch so popular is that it has so much to offer: More than 60,000 books, 30,000 plus rolls of microfilm and more than 475,000 microfiche, as well some 2,000 historical maps and genealogy periodical titles."

INTERNET HELPS RESEARCHERS FILL THE GAPS, CONNECT WITH THE PAST http://www.clarionledger.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050220/FEAT05/502200309/1023 "He kept popping up, here and there, at certain moments in history, like her family's own Forrest Gump. And, each time he did, Celestine Aker could see her grandfather before her, as if he were still alive."

EVERY FAMILY'S OLD PHOTO ALBUM TELLS A STORY http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/02/19/DDGSHBDGF51.DTL&type=art "It's not hard to figure out where Duane Cramer got his talent for photography. Cramer has lovingly restored and collected photographs of five generations of his family that are now on exhibit at one of the San Francisco Airport museums. "Preserving and presenting history runs in my family's blood," Cramer writes in his artist statement."

RECOGNITION (Waccamaw Indians) http://www.myrtlebeachonline.com/mld/myrtlebeachonline/news/special_packages/10889285.htm "For more than 12 years, they have worked for it. And on Thursday, they may finally achieve it. That's what the Waccamaw Indians wait for as the state's Commission for Minority Affairs votes Thursday to recognize the group as an American Indian tribe of South Carolina."

Happy family tree climbing!
