NW Okie's Journey

As seen on my weather-cam in Alva, Oklahoma, it looks like our Southwest Colorado Rocky snowstorm has reached into Northwestern Oklahoma on this Saturday (12/17/2016) with a bit of snow flurries and chilly temperatures. Don't worry, Oklahomans, wait three days and a change will come.

Electoral College

What are the qualifications to be an Elector? The U.S. constitution contains very few provisions relating to the qualifications of Electors. Article II, section 1, clause 2 provides that no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector. The 14th Amendment provides that state officials who have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the Untied States or given aid and comfort to its enemies are disqualified from serving as electors. This prohibition relates to the post-Civil War era.

Patronymics, Naming of Dutch Children In New Netherland

In searching through genealogy information we came across this interesting little tidbit of the naming of Dutch children in New Netherland. In the 1600s and 1700s, if you were looking for the parent of a person, the patronymic would tell you the father's given name, but not the last name being used. It was in the 1700, surnames became fairly firmly established so things got easier.
