Some of my favorite Christmas Carols are those from the play Forgotten Carols by Michael McLean see www.forgottencarols.com for more information. During the play egg salad sandwiches are mentioned and the DVD says to go to the afore mentioned website to get the recipe. Last year I searched for the recipe and came across a youtube.com video with Mrs. McLean demonstrating the recipe. Today I searched for that video and was unable to find it. But last year I took notes!The following is the recipe for Dr. Halifax's Egg Salad Sandwiches (in the video she attributes the recipe to Michael's mother):

It seems like the thing one is supposed to do when starting a blog is to tell a little about myself and why I am blogging. My husband, Michael, and I have been married for 27 years and raised our two daughters. Both of our daughters are married to wonderful young men and live out of town. We have three adorable little grandchildren. Like most of the blogs I have followed, mine is for the intent of keeping in touch with family and friends.

Ever since I was in high school I have been interested in family history or genealogy. I have collected a lot of information on my own ancestors and on those of my husband. I have a tree on ancestry.com onto which I have uploaded as many generational photographs as I have been able to find or have been given by other genealogists. It is my hope that this blog may help others to find me and be able to exchange information to further our research.

Who knows what this blog will eventually become? It will take me some time just to learn how to navigate this site and create the blog.
