Week 20: Fame

I am re-posting some of my old blog posts to keep the history of my blog alive. This post is from the 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History blogging prompts series.

This post appeared originally on my blog on June 4, 2011.

My family has not been one for famous people.  I was in the newspaper a couple of times for a scholarship I received in high school.  My uncle was in the newspaper when he went into military service.

However, my grandparents and others were frequently mentioned in the Madison County Record newspaper for everything from visiting someone for dinner to taking a trip!

Other than these things, none of my family has really been in the paper much!  We are a pretty ordinary family with no really famous people but given the problems of fame today I am not sure that is such a bad thing!!
