-Our Mountains- Debut

 What good news. I came upon this announcement this morning on the blog Appalachian History:

"In the summer of 2014, the new program Our Mountains, which will shine a light on the Appalachian Mountains of East Kentucky, debuts on television and online. “Developed by Dean Osborne, Joel Brashear, and myself,” says Rhonda Brashear, “Our Mountains will feature positive, uplifting stories of the people and places here in the East Kentucky hills. Our Mountains is a modern take on traditional Appalachian culture, celebrating the rich history of our region while looking toward a bright future.”

Please spread the word, and support this wonderful new project.


  1. My family is from Kentucky as well Magoffin county, I am looking into my family tree, we are from Scotland...why am I telling you this you might ask,

    While searching for my family in Scotland I have run into your family surname many times...if you ever decided to wander off your own porch step, I would recommend you check out Scotland..

  2. Thanks for the comment. I have 'jumped off my front porch'. But I'm brick walled at my 4th Great Grand Father. Plus because of a NPE, we are Collins' in name only, plus the fact that our Y-DNA (male) Haplogroup is African, your suggestion might not work out. Collins is also common in England and Ireland.
