Important Notice!!!

Praise the Lord! After 6 weeks or so of dealing with medical facilities, we are finally back in our own home. David's foot is looking much, much better. There are still a few hurdles to cross, but he'll make it.

Please bear with us as we get adjusted to being home again and get back in the swing of blogging again.

Thank you for continued prayers!!!

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up since YouTube has decided he is unworthy of monetization since his isn't a huge channel, please subscribe to his YouTube channel and watch the videos. That would really make his day! He has to have at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 minutes of watch time within 30 days in order to be able to keep the monetization option.

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

http://www.geneamusings.com/2016/11/saturday-night-genealogy-fun-your-first.html



This week's questions from Genea-Musings:

The 2016 Presidential election is this coming Tuesday.  When did you vote in your first Presidential election and, if you choose, who did you vote for?  What about your parents?  When did they first vote?

My first presidential election was in 1984, the year that David and I got married. We voted via absentee ballots as we were going to be on our honeymoon on election day.  

The main candidates were Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale. I had to look up the Democratic candidate because I couldn't remember who it was.  I will never forget Ronald Reagan.  David and I were blessed to see him in person when he came to the University of South Carolina while we were students there. Mr. Reagan was the best!

The voting age when my parents came of age was 21.    My daddy turned 21 in December 1962.  His first presidential election would have been 1964 (the year he married my mother)The candidates were Lyndon Johnson against Barry Goldwater.  My mama turned 21 in March 1965, the year that I was born.  Her first presidential election would have been in 1968, the year that she had my little sister, who was her 4th and final successful pregnancy.  There were three main candidates that year: Richard Nixon, Hubert Humphrey, and George Wallace.  I do not know whether my parents voted in the first elections in which they were eligible to vote or not.

The 26th Amendment, lowering the voting age from 21 years of age to 18, was ratified by 3/4 of the states and became part of the Constitution on 1 July 1971.
