Family Update – 8/4/07

Monsoon season is in full swing here in Arizona. Afternoon downpours have been rolling in like clockwork. We have had a couple of gully washers that dropped 2 or 3 inches of rain each on us. The area sure is getting green. For us here, it’s been very, very humid. It actually reached 45% the […]

Family Update 7/28/07

Sorry for the dearth of posts lately, I seem to have picked up a nasty cold while in Anaheim for the Showstopper National Dance Competition. Actually, the whole family got minor colds except for me who got the doozy. We are talking serious chest and head congestion with a running nose and wicked cough. Yesterday, […]

New Genealogy Site Live

Okay, my new genealogy site is live. Give it a try and let me know what you think. As stated before, I usually my genealogy website primarily for the display of information. This new site is based on the TNG (The Next Generation) genealogy software. It seems to have a much nicer user interface and […]

Genealogy Site Update

I have been hard at work this weekend preparing a new genealogy site. To me, the current site had gotten old and out dated. The appearance was very dated and ease of use for non-technical folks was sometimes questioned. I had hoped to announce the site tonight, but I am still struggling with auto directing […]

Busy Times

I will be entering some busy times for the next week or two and may not be able to keep up my current pace of posting. Tomorrow, we head off to Phoenix for the Regional Showstoppers Dance Competition.  The kids (and Suzanne) are really excited.  It’s a weekend away from the house and they get […]

Genealogy Thoughts

A distant relative of mine, John Butler, recently contacted me after finding my genealogy research here at Mr Papa’s World. During the holidays, he sent me a big packet of his genealogy research including a bunch of pictures that included some of Suzanne’s Great-Grandfather. Today, I had the first opportunity to take a look at […]

Site Update

Once again, I have made a few changes to Mr Papa’s World. I have added a section in the sidebar for historical archives. You can search the archives by author, by date, by category or by tag. The archives section also contains an archive of the polls I have run here at Mr Papa’s World. […]

The Genealogy Updates Continue

With this wonderful vacation I am on, I have been able to find time each day to work on the genealogy research. Today, I have uploaded another update to Mr Papa’s World Genealogy. This update includes primarily new information on Suzanne’s side of the family. Once again, the new information is largely due to the […]


This vacation sure has been nice – didnt I say that before?  Anyways, it would have been a bit nicer if the kids were off of school this week, but they dont get off until tomorrow.  Usually, we get a couple of weeks off together at the end of the year.  They actually get the […]

McDonald Surname Upate to Genealogy

Today, I have uploaded another update to the Mr Papa’s World Genealogy research. The main focus of this update was to the surname McDonald. Suzanne’s Mother, Anne Pechuls, maiden name is McDonald. The majority of this new information comes from Anne herself who kindly responded to a request for some information on her family which […]
