Today we was in different city and there is one Church, there was little girl, and when the priest seen the girl he say are you baptized and she say no, then he say you cannot go forward in the church, this is the law.
He didn't let her enter the Church because she wasn't baptised? That's weird, I've heard about the non-baptised being actually led out of the nave after the dismissal of the catechumens but only that.

He said "forward in the church," not "enter the church," so I'm not convinced you have developed an accurate picture of what happened.
I did, my mistype though, I should have asked if he didn't let her enter the nave.

According to Tesla’s account of the crash, the car’s sensor system, against a bright spring sky, failed to distinguish a large white 18-wheel truck and trailer crossing the highway. ... The company’s statement deflected blame for the crash."Among all vehicles in the US, there is a fatality every 94 million miles," the statement said.

It seems I'll work on the Olympic Games as an OFA. That's short for "someone important and his family's handyman" (which can be in a wide range from the Prince of Monaco to some sports chairman from Central Africa). It'll certainly be fun, but maybe I shouldn't have told the committee that I speak German in my interview, since I'll definitely work with some German speaker because of that. I do know German, but I have few actual practice so being supposed to conversate in the language for three weeks straight is a pretty horrifying idea. They will turn me into a Bratwurst! I also told them I'm Orthodox, however, so there's a chance they put me with some Eastern European tycoon since they want us to work for similar people.

Well, I am very pessimistic about the Olympic Games, the situation of Brazil is quite chaotic and Rio de Janeiro is bankrupt and immersed in violence and crime. I don't have to many hopes for this country, a lot of people I know decided to leave, to Canada and USA or Australia. I hope one day Brazil desintegrate in a lot of countries in a peaceful way, the bureaucracy from Brasilia is a vicious cancer.

Yeah, so I just blew an entire Friday evening chasing down my g-g-grandfather's daughter's line, since I inherent X intact from father, just looking around and seeing what's going on. 

Probably nothing to do with me since my line appears to come through his son, but she innocently married a simple farm guy in 1875 over in Missouri, they had two children and died young.  Their young lady married, had a daughter who married into the Leach family.  The Leach family tied into the Dixon line through Jane Dixon, who handed off a full X chromosome to her son, and the Dixon's carried on back until about 1637 when Rose Ann Harlan came from Northern Ireland to the Americas. 

That's the Harlan family from England, who picked up the line from the Seamon's in 1620s through Deborah Seamon who passed an X to her son, back to the Langely family, who carried from the 16th century English Hungerford nobility, then the Heytesbury, the DeQuincy line, including Saher IV deQuincy 1st Earl of Winchester, Magna Charta Baron b. 1155

back to Lady Matilda Maud Huntington of Scotland who is the daughter of Waltheoff II Siwardson Earl Huntington, b. 1046, son of Ulf Thorgilsson
son of Thorgils Sprakaleg Styrjornsson, Styrbjorn the Strong King of Sweden Olafsson and Thyra Haraldsdottir of Denmark, from Harald I Herbastus Bluetooth Gormsson de Crepon King of Denmark. 

Styrbjorn is son of King Olaf II Mitkg Bjornsson, son of King Bjorn III of Sweden "the Old" Eriksson, son of Erik "King of Sweden" Edmundsson b. abt 849 in Uppsala Sweden

who presumably crawled out of the dirt somewhere? 

and what is with all the women folk going off to Y, Somme, Picardie, France to die?  Even after they became English nobility some of them were still going off to die there.


Seems like all the people so proud of their English heritage really come from either France or the Netherlands.

Anywhoo, happy to see my kid has at least double Revolutionary War lines, Civil War Union, WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Gulf War, and a woman survivor of the Salem witch trials.

That's awesome. My family researches have been unfortunately a bit inconclusive. There is my great-great-grandfather Francisco de Sá, born in the early 1880's and dead in the 1970's, there was his father whose name I don't recall but I have some documents belonging to him regarding his farm, and, well, my family among Francisco's descendants claimed to descend from the original Sá family who founded Rio de Janeiro. Well, it seems former governor of Rio de Janeiro, Salvador Correia de Sá (d. 1631), gave land in Volta Redonda (the city where my Sá ancestors were from) to one of his sons, whose name I forgot too. Browsing a genealogical site, I found out the Sá family who founded Rio descended from marriages with Portuguese nobility, making us all descendants from Afonso the Conqueror, first king of Portugal, who in turn descended from Fernando the Great, founder of Spanish monarchy, Hugh Capet, and, in turn, from Charlemagne!


Someday I may recover those documents and rediscover the missing links, let's see. :)

Yes!  You should definitely develop and preserve all that, especially take care with primary documents.  It's only through people taking care that we have histories of families.   Here we have historical societies that will keep documents in perfect climate conditions for preservation.

I don't know if you have children, but this is something to pass on. 

Nowadays genealogy is so much easier with computers.  There are software programs for entering family trees.  I was steered toward one called Magic Roots which has a free level that can be upgraded.  That program can be uploaded into a GEDCOM for comparison with others' ancestry.

It's a little clunky, but not as difficult as some of the genetic analysis sites, like GEDMatch.

Just imagine the outcry that would result if Catholics or Orthodox were using this sort of entryist "stealth ecumenism" to reel in Protestant congregations (or each other's congregations)....

Hmm, actually, is there any historical precedent for doing this sort of thing? Not that I'd personally endorse underhanded tactics or anything.

Ironic how "safe sex" in one sense expired with the generation that coined the term: In our grandfathers' or great-grandfathers' day, it was very unlikely someone could die from even the most licentious life; then came legalized abortions and AIDS, and many sexual choices became very unsafe, indeed, life-threatening.

Just imagine the outcry that would result if Catholics or Orthodox were using this sort of entryist "stealth ecumenism" to reel in Protestant congregations (or each other's congregations)....

Hmm, actually, is there any historical precedent for doing this sort of thing? Not that I'd personally endorse underhanded tactics or anything.

How do you decide what deserves its own thread and what should just be thrown into Random Postings or in some other thread?

I'd rather see you command a Moratorium on all posting for 40 days and 40 nights.

What's the #1 rule of OC.net? Is it "Do not talk about 'Random Postings'"?

I have been working on it. I've grown to hate the internet, yet I still am drawn to it.

I'm so sad for something that I heard in work. Some intern was hitting his girlfriend inside the office. Instead of calling the police or simply banning him, they just changed his jurisdiction.  >:(

New judge, new public defender, probably new prosecutor... not sure how this works in the US. He's still in the same floor of the same building though, which is quite frightening. I just don't get it, people have been arrested there for much less. People heard her screams and saw her hurt. Lord have mercy!

Hmmm...underhanded tactics... :D
Maybe you could put out a sign where "BAPTIST CHURCH" is in really large letters and "St. John the" and "ROCOR" are in really tiny letters...though they would see the icons and walk straight back out. Darn. Guess you would have to make those really tiny too...and disguise the royal doors...and not use the usual vestments...

This won't work, will it? :(

The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

That's awesome. My family researches have been unfortunately a bit inconclusive. There is my great-great-grandfather Francisco de Sá, born in the early 1880's and dead in the 1970's, there was his father whose name I don't recall but I have some documents belonging to him regarding his farm, and, well, my family among Francisco's descendants claimed to descend from the original Sá family who founded Rio de Janeiro. Well, it seems former governor of Rio de Janeiro, Salvador Correia de Sá (d. 1631), gave land in Volta Redonda (the city where my Sá ancestors were from) to one of his sons, whose name I forgot too. Browsing a genealogical site, I found out the Sá family who founded Rio descended from marriages with Portuguese nobility, making us all descendants from Afonso the Conqueror, first king of Portugal, who in turn descended from Fernando the Great, founder of Spanish monarchy, Hugh Capet, and, in turn, from Charlemagne!


Someday I may recover those documents and rediscover the missing links, let's see. :)


We have a carolingian in the forum, what a honor!

You are the carioca version of the 'quatrocentões' from São Paulo, wich I am descendant.

Cool! I think most people would find these awesome links if they had the tools though.
