Saturday Night Genealogy Fun! September 17

I'm a few days late but I love participating in the SNGF series from Genea-Musings when I have an opportunity.

I can't believe I haven't blogged for two weeks! Sorry it's been so long. I'll blame it on homework but I can't guarantee that's true.  Lets see, where was I... I mentioned conversation club in my last blog. Let me tell you about that. Every Tuesday night many of the IES student and about an... Continue Reading →

Live in Concert

Last Wednesday was off for Veteran's Day, something France celebrates wholeheartedly (they're always looking for a day off). My host family invited me to go with them to their house in Parce-sur-Sarthe. Parce (pronounced Par-say) is a tiny little medieval town about an hour and fifteen minutes from Nantes. My family has a big old... Continue Reading →
