2007 Coffey Cousins' Convention

If you have plans to attend the 24th annual Coffey Cousins' Convention from Apr. 26th-29th, 2007 in Dubuque, IA and have not yet registered, you might want to hustle it up a bit. Click on the title link for more information and a registration form.

Hostess and Coffey Cousin Darlene Clark has worked hard to bring this together and, is looking for a large attendance. All of us are looking forward to meeting new cousins.

  1. I enjoyed looking at your blog and have added to the list of interesting genealogy blogs on my own two new genealogy blogs. For the past two years I have written a blog on business applications of the web. Recently, I started two genealogy blogs to share the extensive family history research I did two years ago. At first I just shared it with my cousins. A blog seems a great way to reach a broader audience.

    One is the Ives Family History Blog, covering my father’s family going back to William Ives, co-founder of New Haven, as well as those who married into the family (e.g., Bassett, Dickerman, Yale, Atwater, Peck, Cooper, Day, Humiston, Bishop, Dunbar, Rich and others).

    The other is Sharp Family in NC covering the history of the Sharp family of Harrellsville, North Carolina. My grandmother is a Sharp from Harrellsville. It also covers some of the families who married into the Sharp family (e.g., Winbourne, Hare, Parker, Powell).

    For both blogs, I am also doing brief histories of where they lived and travel tips for the locations.

    I would be very interested in any feedback you might have. I plan to take on my mother’s side with some new blogs after I see how these work. If you think these blogs might interest your readers as examples, links to them would be greatly appreciated. Here are the links to my genealogy blogs
