Celebrate Your Name In 2013

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

How often do you think about your own name? That may seem like an odd question, but the first week of March is Celebrate Your Name Week. It’s seven days to ponder the importance of your personal moniker.

The concept of Celebrate Your Name Week was created by Jerry Hill in 1997. He encourages people to take time to learn more about their own name – and the names of others.

At PeopleFinders, we think names are very important. They are our personal titles. They help us build our sense of identity. And they help us identify, associate and reconnect with the people who share our world. So, we proudly present an updated version of our own Celebrate Your Name article, and encourage you to learn a little more about names this March.

Family Stories Month

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

November is the owner of an often-overlooked celebration known as Family Stories Month. It’s a simple thing, really. Just a time to reflect on the silly, funny, serious and sometimes terrifying stories that help define our family units.

Family Stories
These are the stories of us. They can make us laugh, cry and experience every emotion in between. Sometimes all at once. That’s because these stories helped make us what we are today.

Every family has thousands of stories. Some are epic tales that changed lives. Others are small anecdotes that bring us happy memories of someone, or some moment in time. But they are all important. And they are all worth sharing.
