My Grandmother had asked her mom to write a journal, when she passed away my Grandmother passed it to me, along with a hand written tree.

The journal is pretty interesting, as is the tree. It is not anything you would find on line. If you think you may be related to my family and have hit a road block in your tree building, or maybe the stories my great grandmother talks about may mention somebody you are related to...

Some of the last names are Burger, b1690, Howard, Edens, Arehart, (Earhart also and the story why the spelling changed) Bates

This is pretty cool. I'd suggest that you create a Blog (via blogger or Wordpress,) and transcribe Journal entries from the start. That way when people search for names and such they'll be able to find them easier, and the full entry.

I have a friend who's maiden name is Arehart (also spelled with the A) She was born & raised in New York. I must say what a treasure that has been handed down to you.
