A Message of Great Gratitude…and a Grand Bird!

A message of great gratitude…

The turkey is the symbol of gratitude in America—go figure.
__He sleeps in trees to escape predators;  yet, builds his nest on the ground.
__He blushes when excited or nervous—and turns his red wattle white or blue.
__He spreads his feathers into a great fan, gobbles, and struts around to attract a mate who does not gobble nor strut.
__His meat contains tryptophan, the amino acid used by the body to make serotonin which causes sleep and a general feeling of well-being.
   __Wild turkeys can fly at 55 mph; domestic turkeys have too much breast meat—the weight keeps them on the ground.

And we gather around this grand bird with our families each November, taking hands in thanks to God for turkey, the trimmings, and all the blessings we receive through the year. We load our plates with all the bounty of the earth. We revel in the companionship of relatives and good friends.

And with our tummies and hearts full—we share a moment of great gratitude…

A message of great gratitude to my customers and clients…

I want to thank each one of you, gentle readers, for the privilege of helping you discover those special, hard-to-find people in your background. Knowing full well that your search for ancestry is also driven by great gratitude; and knowing full well that I, too, benefit from sharing your ancestors’ lives—however brief a time we work together.

Many thanks, your favorite genealogist, Arlene Eakle  http://arleneeakle.com

PS  The Genealogy Library Center, Inc. will hold a security copy of all the research files for my clients–in paper for sure, and some in digital form.  Preservation of genealogy files and resources has become my life’s work.  Many thanks for that too.
