Try going to a Family History Center of the LDS church. They have people rained to help you find ancestors.

KS or MO? - 4/24/2012

lived in both kansas city, ks (wyandotte county) and in kansas city, mo - and we preferred kcmo - there was a little more to do - besides, in kansas it's a b*t*h to get your hard earned refund if you're owed something back. The state was so broke they couldn't give people their State refund checks. sad. Either way, get ready for blistering unbearable humidity and heat, the kind that makes you go mad, hour long waits on crappy buses when all you wanted to do was go to the store, what should just be a 15-20 minute trip, can take you up to an hour or more. Ridiculous cold, harsh winters though you can be in low 20's one minute and the next it will be 80 something degrees...crazy.[read more...]

Kansas City - 8/10/2009

It is a mid-sized city. I have lived in this area my entire life (29 years). There is no public transportation and the traffic can create a problem. However, this city has undergone a transformation and downtown has been rejuvenated so there are more cultural opportunites around here. If you are smart, crime doesn't really have to affect you. I've never been worried about my safety. As for the weather, the humidity is pretty bad. Winters are cold but tolerable. This city is really spread out. You have Overland Park, which are the affluent suburbs around here. Kansas City proper is where a lot of people commute to work from the suburbs. Overland Park is a very nice bedroom community but you may find it stale if you like diversity and culture. It seems to be a pretty pet-friendly city and many apartments seem to allow larger dogs in their units, which I love, being a huge dog person. On a final note, it can be very hard to meet people here since people generally have that keep-to-themselves mentality, at least with strangers. It is not a city where a lot of friendliness abounds. I would say that people here are down-to-earth as compared to a lot of cities I've visited. A lot of people I know that weren't from here made their friends through work. Overall, a decent city but lacking in scenic beauty. We do have a lot of good parks, though.[read more...]

Not sure what to title this... - 8/26/2006

I was born here, lived in Arkansas (just don't send me the jokes; heard enough during the Clinton administration) while a child, then moved back here. Thus, my entire life has been here. I have travelled; loved what I've seen of NYC (upper east side) and the culture, loved the beauty of NJ, love the Mall of America, love the beauty of suburban Atlanta the men and the culture, love the shopping in Dallas, love the beauty of San Diego, seafood of San Francisco (and I hate fish) and NONE OF THAT IS IN Kansas City KS or MO. The cost of living is what keeps me here. It's relatively inexpensive, but if you don't have children, hate NASCAR, have grown tired of the bar scene and sports, there's nothing to do. These cities are not cities. They are large country towns. There is no metropolitan attitude and no sight of change in the near future. Overland Park KS is part of this metropolitan area, and it's noted as one of the best places to live. True if you are white, make over $100k per year. Even Overland Park has a facade of wealth; number of homes that are empty; couple can only afford the mortgage and leasing the BMW and Benz in the drive. I could go on, but what's the point. As long as the almighty dollar is ruling the country; that's every "great" city in America isn't it?[read more...]

Is there truly "a best place to live"? - 8/26/2006

I have been reading commentary mostly on Dallas/Ft. Worth and Atlanta. In light of what I've read, where I've travelled and where I live, there is no best place to live in this country. Life is what you make of it, but what have we, and I say WE because this country is made of people; what have made of this country. Everything has evolved everywhere around money. Nothing in this country is done anymore on benevolence or the good of the common man. Everything is done in support of money. So, when you choose somewhere to live, make what you can out of it, or go and try to make something out of another location. However, if you're not part of the political engine that runs the city and the money, you're not going to be happy regardless of where you go.[read more...]

The "Other" Kansas City - 8/4/2006

Kansas City, Kansas (KCK), the smaller and less popular sister city of Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO), is on the move. Few cities in Kansas cities--if any--have experienced the level of housing and retail growth that KCK has the past few years. The Kansas (NASCAR) Speedway and The Legends, a retail and entertainment destination attraction, have made Kansas City, Kansas, a major tourist attraction. Aside from development, though, there isn't much else for Kansas Citians to brag about. KCK's downtown, once lively and full of stores, is unattractive and has few stores and eating establishments. Most Kansas Citians complain that downtown is a shell of its former self. But, while downtown is surrounded by older neighborhoods, the local government IS committed to revitalizing the area--and they've done a fairly good job thus far. Several housing developments have been built in the last few years and more are underway (unfortunately, retail, which will support the new communities, has not kept pace). Most of KCK's development (Kansas Speedway, Village West, e.g.) has taken place out west in the more affluent part of the city. Lots of Kansas Citians take issue with the local government, arguing that too much attention is being paid to retail development out west and too little on residential development in the east. KCK is located in Wyandotte County, one of the poorest counties in Kansas; and it borders Johnson County, one of the most affluent counties in THE entire country! Most of KCK's consumer dollars are spent in Johnson County, though Village West has helped keep some of those dollars in the county. Most of the best jobs in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area are in KCMO and Johnson County--and, sadly, many of the best jobs in KCK are held by Kansas City Missourians or Johnson Countians! Kansas City, Kansas, is not a BAD place to live, but it's nothing special either. The development notwithstanding, it's not a city I'd recommend.[read more...]
