Message Boards








Genealogy tip for the day: Message Boards

Have you ever wished there was someplace where you could go and ask questions, someplace where there are people with similar interests that might could help you, guide you or solve your mystery?

There are ways to do this for those involved in genealogy. They are called Message Boards. There are several websites that serve this purpose.  Feel free to look over these sites and see what questions have already been asked. They maybe some of yours! Then pick one, get on board and fire away.


If you don’t think these meet your needs, type in “genealogy message boards” in a search engine like google and you will find more.

Today’s Recipe

2 cups cored, seeded, diced ripe tomatoes
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup tomato juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons sriracha
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup (2 oz.) vodka or gin
Green olives for garnish, optional
Celery sticks for garnish, optional

Preparation
1. Spread tomatoes and cucumber on a rimmed baking sheet and freeze until just frozen, about 45 minutes.
2. In a food processor, mix frozen vegetables, tomato juice, lemon juice, sriracha, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Pulse until mixture is a fine slush, scraping down sides of bowl a few times if necessary. If pieces are too frozen to process, leave mixture to thaw at room temperature for 5 minutes and try again.
3. Add vodka or gin to food processor and pulse once to mix. Divide mixture between 2 glasses. Garnish with olives and celery and serve with straws, if desired.
