Tyus Ties Family Book

For those who didn't know, I completed the Tyus family book with zero issues spring of 2013!  Very happy with the outcome.  Everyone involved was forthcoming with information, obtained some great photos, and I was able to complete the whole project within a month.  When everyone works together, everything comes together--much appreciated!

My grandfather was Allen Tyus originally from Alabama, but relocated to Pennsylvania during a time of heavy segregation.  He had a bit of mystery about himself, so I started digging and found out that he had his mother's maiden name, but that his father's last name was Pyers.  Although this book is not available for public view, relatives are welcome to contact me if they are interested in purchasing it. 

Anyway, it was a great project, I thought I would have stopped doing family memoirs after the Growing Up McGuire book, but good things happen to those who wait!  If you are interested in talking about your family project, feel free to comment or send email to:

Peterson Family Stories

Another family book worth mentioning to those who are related to me.  I have been working on this project on and off during 2013.  I have interviewed relatives and collected various information about them. 

Peterson is the last name of my grandmother.  She was born in a family of 20.  Her father was Arthur Peterson and mother Mamie Littles of Alabama.  My motivation for putting this book together was after years of listening to the good, bad and ugly concerning this family, I thought, "Why keep the stories and life lessons to myself?"  Thus, another book has been created to pass on to my children.  To be quite honest, I just don't want any kissing cousins!  If you are interested in someone heading your family tree project, for the right price, we can talk!  See my blog pages to find out more about who I am and what I do to help individuals and businesses.  Thanks for stopping by!

Nicholl shares recordings on

With so many recordings, sometimes there isn't enough time to organize them, create something interesting with them, or even distribute them, so I needed a place to back up some of my work and then share as needed.  Voicebase provided me with such a place.  You can find some of my spiritual recordings there, feel free to listen while you surf the Internet:

From Virtual to Reality...

One day you are going to meet some of these people you see online and when you do you will be either impressed, disappointed or eager to make friends.  For me, I had butterflies in my stomach seeing some people I hadn't seen in years offline, were online and vice versa.  At times I was excited, other times not-so much, funny how memories not only show up in your mind, but those negative feelings tend to accompany them as well. 
If you would like to connect with me, Nicholl McGuire, feel free to connect with me:
