While the main web site of Old Hippie’s Roots is where the main articles telling of our ancestors individually are located, the Facebook Page is a place where family can discuss day-to-day family stuff — without all of the other weird Facebook postings on politics and religion, aches and pains, complaints and gripes, etc.
This is the appropriate place to share old family photos with a short description, link to ancestor history, photos from a big family event, and any other appropriate discussion of family. The page is organized in chronological order by month, and only displaying a couple of the most recent posts; so if you hadn’t visited the page for a while, be sure to click the More link at the bottom of each month.
Please, if you have a Facebook account, look over in the right sidebar for the Facebook RSS for this site — and click LIKE. This will get the Family posting on your newsfeed, and get you access to the Family Roots page on Facebook.
The page is currently open while we encourage our family members to click LIKE and participate — but at some point it will be closed to the public and private only to the family members who had clicked Like. The Facebook page is NOT intended to replace this web site, the purpose of which is to develop a documented history of all family members. The intention of the Facebook page is to better promote this site, share more history of our ancestors, and more of the day to day family discussions.
Please participate if you belong to the Schultz, Castillo, Francis, VilleMonte, or Lyon(s) families.
at this moment 30 years ago — we were celebrating my wife’s 26th birthday by driving my new 280ZX the 45 miles (much of it 80MPH on the shoulder through Rush Hour Traffic) to the hospital she and her mother were born in — so that our eldest daughter could also be born there.
Happy Birthday to Deb and Danielle. Man couldn’t ask for a better wife or Daughter. Actually, and man couldn’t ask for a more kind and generous family.
Some old family members no longer with us have a Christmas Message to y’all. So here is Burrito, Fang, Maxine, Shotsie and Sooooweeeee.
Dallas Schultz received his trophy in the mail yesterday. Thank you to those who voted for him.
Generation 1 would be the generation of my, my siblings, and my cousin’s parents. Few remain, and they include both my parents, Aunt Willie, Uncle Bud, and my 2nd cousin Howard.
It is important to the documenting who our family ancestors are to future generations — that the Generation 1 members take a little time to tell us about their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and other Generation 1 members. This is also their opportunity to tell of their “Life & Times” to their descendants.
To view what has been written so far on an ancestor, simply click the Family Tree link in the NavBar, slide down to the Surname of the Family, and the existing pages will display.
If have a memory to add about that family member, please feel free to submit it. The FAQ page has more detail to do so. If you have questions or comments — please do so in the Old Hippie’s Roots forums.
The Old Hippie’s Roots project is a collaboration from family members of the Schultz, Castillo, VilleMonte, Lyon(s), and Francis families to document it’s ancestry history, so that it might passed along to future generations. This is done in the Family Wiki, of which there is a wiki telling the story of each ancestor, and their descendants.
You can learn more about the site by reading the FAQs, and the posting below.
If you are in any way related to the Old Hippie, you are asked to please help with the collaboration of this family history.
Also check out the Old Hippie’s Roots on Facebook. This is where we have a day to day conversations regarding family. There you can post old family photos, update family with events and announcements, ask questions and read about our ancestors.
