A family group is determined by the marriages on the pedi-gree chart; parents and each set of grandparents account for three family groups; great grandparents add another four groups. Family Record Forms generally contain more information than the pedi-gree and allow for entry of infor-mation about all the children in a particular family, not just those who are direct ancestors. The Fam-ily Record also provides a place to record sources. Note that the sub-ject of the genealogy appears as a child on the family record for his/her parents. Linda Peters Family record forms are avail-able, free, from a variety of online sources; they are also available free at the Centennial Park Library, 2227 23rd Ave., Greeley, (970) 506-8600. If you need help com-pleting the form, contact the li-brary Monday through Thursday, 9 to 4 p.m. when the Genealogy desk is staffed by volunteers. Even if a genealogy database program such as Family Tree Maker, Legacy Family Tree, Re-union, etc. can be used, I recom-mend starting with the pencil and paper approach. This "old fash-ioned" way of doing things is an aid in understanding how/why in-formation is recorded and verified as well as allowing work on a fam-ily history without simultaneously learning how to use a computer program. v Linda Peters, ljvhp@comcast.net, is the Genealogy Desk Coordinator and also teach beginning and inter-mediate genealogy classes at Centen-nial Park Library in Greeley, CO.2010 Weld County 50+ Health FairThis year's "Pit Stop to Health and Wealth" 50+ Health and Job Fair Expo will be held on Friday, Oc-tober 8 at the Island Grove Exhi-bition Hall, 525 N. 15th Ave. The Health Fair will be from 7:00 am - noon.

With any paint job, the right preparation is more that half the work. The prep-aration techniques vary according to the surface to be painted. First replace or repair anything that is damaged. This applies to all surfaces, including wood, metal, masonry and stucco. Thoroughly clean and wash the surface to be painted. A garden hose can be used, but a pressure washer makes a cleaner surface. Al-low the surface to dry completely. Remove chipped, cracked or blistered paint with sandpaper or a scraper. Use a drop cloth to catch any loose pieces of paint. Patch nail, screw holes, cracks or gouges. Use caulking at seams, corners, on door and window trim and any-where the trim and siding meet. A good rule is to caulk anyplace one material meets a different kind of material. Use an epoxy filler to repair any major problems with wood. Use a stain blocking primer on dark stains. Areas with mildew can also be covered with a stain blocking primer. When using primer on mildew, there are primers with ad-ditives to treat mildew problems. Sand all glossy or smooth sur-faces so that the paint adheres properly. Remove any dust after the sanding has been completed. Cover light fixtures, electri-cal covers, and plumbing outlets. Remove window screens, as paint stains screens. Use a drop cloth to protect anything that you do not plan to paint. Apply a quality primer to un-painted surfaces. Be aware that there are different types of primers for different surfaces such as wood, metal, etc. Let the primer coat dry, then apply at least 2 coats of quality ex-terior paint Be sure that you fol-low all recommendations from the manufacturer. A brush should be used to paint all wood and a spray-er or roller for the rest. Kick back and enjoy the re-sults of your labor. By using qual-ity products, such as those found in the paint department in Big R, your exterior painting project will be a joy for all to see.Fort Lupton Trapper Days theme: Tips & Tricks For Exterior PaintingHometown Heroes
