At the heart of The World According to Greg is the written word. Be it through a blog post, a short story, social media postings or a tweet, for me, as for Truman Capote, who once wrote, “the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music that words make.“
The posts on this site are divided into two main subject areas. One is The Story of Us, with stories, posts and photo galleries specifically related to genealogy and family history in general, and my family (and all its many branches) in particular. If you’re mainly interested in that and not all the political stuff, that’s the place to go.
On the other hand, The Truth … According to Greg is, well, everything else, the stuff about current events, politics, religion — you know, all the things you’re not supposed to talk about over the family dinner table. In fact, talking about this stuff has gotten me blocked from the Facebook pages of two cousins of mine whose stories are a part of The Story of Us and who probably won’t be inviting me to their dinner table any time soon. Sometimes the truth hurts.
This page displays some of my various social media feeds. Although it’s sometimes hard to separate one from the other, as is the case with the two tracks described above, one account @Gregory_Hile has mainly the truth stuff and can be found over on The Truth page, while @Hile Family History focuses on genealogy and family history and can be found below and on the home page.
Facebook and Instagram feeds can also be found below and on the home page. YouTube, Pinterest and possibly others will hopefully follow soon.
