Family Genealogy Queries: GARNER GARDNER GARLAND (Southern Genealogical Research) by R. Stephen Smith

Contents of this volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed GARNER (with 19 queries total), GARDNER (GARDENER, GARDINER) (17 queries), GARLAND (8 queries), or GARDENHIRE (GARDENSHIRE) (3 queries), as well as GARARD, GARDER, GARMAN, and GARCIA (with 1 query apiece).The focus is on families in the southern United States.Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although these queries were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you’re working on the same names or lines.Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family.

What Kind of Thinker and Learner Are You? (Permission Granted Today) by Virginia Reeves

It’s important to continually stretch your mind to move past current limits; it’s worth the effort to learn new strategies. There are 5 primary thinking styles: Synthesist, Idealist, Pragmatist, Analyst, and Realist. It is important to consider your outlook on life. Does it come from a base of “How can I lose” or “How can I win” perspective? Discover several behavior patterns based on your point-of-view.

This short, easy-to-read book offers a variety of suggestions to remind you that lasting brain power seems to lie not in learning a lot of facts but rather in developing the complexity of your thoughts.

The basics learned in classrooms can sometimes be boring but it’s the ability to take that knowledge and apply it elsewhere that is the foundation of a positive and creative experience. People who view learning as being energizing and enlightening are generally very good at seeking alternatives and solutions not only because of how they think (bigger) but also how they live (broadly). In order to nurture creative thinking we need to train people who can think ‘ sideways ‘ (across conventional boundaries and in-between the lines).

The need to continually reinvent and be innovative is imperative for any kind of growth. Initiative and incentive are top qualities of those who enjoy learning. They take pleasure in expanding their own base of skills and talents along with providing the same benefit to others. Learning improves how we lead, govern, interact, teach, and how we live our life overall.

When you squash the incentive to use the imagination you strip away the desire to learn and comprehend what is going on in the world around you. Questioning is what produces new answers and moves a person towards forging into new realms of activity and relationships. Act like a scientist and explorer, think like a child, and enjoy seeking new ways to stimulate your mind and senses by living a life filled with curiosity. Discover 7 basic types of empowering questioning techniques.

Engaging in different types of ‘smart’ learning styles will allow you to have a more productive and effective life. They are: word, logic, picture, body, people, self, music, and nature.

Another chapter lists a wide variety of descriptive words to help you better determine your dominant thinking patterns and outlook on life.

Social intelligence is also discussed because your ability to interact with others influences you a great deal.

A chapter is devoted to developing more intuitive practices.

In the Build a Better Brain and Memory Sharpening Tools sections you receive more tips.

Mental flexibility is critical: you need to forgo automatic perceptions, reactions, attitudes, responses, and opinions. Open-mindedness requires you to take the data you have and inject a variety of possibilities into the equation. When you do so you also step into the realm of attracting ideas and resources you might not have otherwise considered.

Another important element of a creative thinker is to treasure intuition, insights, hunches and a gut feeling. A primary method to changing how you think and act is to visualize what it is you would like to accomplish and who you want to become. There is a theater in your mind and it is on call 24 hours a day. You are the director, producer, and star of your unique life.

This is one of many books in the series Permission Granted Today. All take an in-depth look at a specific topic which gives you an immersion from different perspectives. I hope you enjoy the material and discover additional methods for expanding your thinking and learning capabilities.
