Trudi’s Corner: Family History & Modern Technology

By Trudi Cunningham

Recently, I was asked by a family member if I had any pictures or information about my sojourn to America. This is something I had given to a granddaughter sometime ago and a niece as well for a school project at those times. Many times, I have related my remembrances of that particular time, and it does make me feel good that people are interested. How many will remember and how many times has it been said “America is the melting pot of the world?”

For those who are familiar with a computer, may be in a position to trace back their family history. That is definitely something I would be interested in. So sorry, I don’t have one, but I do have a friend who is constantly urging me to get to that point and would help me.

I’m always being told of the advantages when it comes to banking, pulling things from the internet, such as extra coupons for supermarkets or even reading the news, instead of reading a newspaper. Last year, I missed an article about a very nice person I had worked with at City Federal Savings who passed away. Another person did tell me about it sometime later, and went back to the computer to print it out for my benefit.

I do know that my son has actually gotten involved, as it is a time-passer for him. He does send out messages to people when he reads particular releases that he may be in favor of, or disagree with the outcome of others. Communicating on Facebook, according to some I know, is enjoyable. I really like it when talking to family members personally, or reading the paper at the breakfast table.

For those who object to my views about things, that’s O.K…. as is said, “To each his own.” Need I say more?
