1. Sun, moon, and holy scripture.

The Jewish calendar is lunisolar, just like the Ancient Macedonian, Babylonian, Egyptian, and Chinese calendars. Corresponding with all of the lunisolar calendars means that the Jewish calendar is in sync with the natural cycles of the moon and the sun. These astronomical phenomena helped determine the length of a day, month, and year. For example, days are set by the rotation of the Earth’s axis. Months are determined by the revolution of the moon around the Earth, roughly 29 ½ days. And years, which are around 365 ¼ days, are how long it takes for our planet to rotate around the sun.

What’s unique about the Hebrew calendar, however, is that it also contains “a body of complex regulations, exceptions, and mathematical rules,” states Time and Date. The calendar “is also designed to satisfy many requirements conveyed in the Jewish Holy Scripture.”

It should also be noted that the Hebrew calendar is also a comparatively “imprecise system in terms of reflecting the duration of a solar year.” The reason is that the “time it takes Earth to complete a full orbit around the sun,” when compared “with the timing of the astronomical seasons,” is off by one day every 216 years.


Season 2 of Selena Gomez’s cooking show featuring adobo, turon premiers January 21

Eagle-eyed Filipino fans last week gushed after learning that American singer-actress Selena Gomez will cook a Filipino dish on her cooking program.

In the almost two-minute-long trailer of the second season “Selena + Chef,” Gomez can be seen preparing the well-loved Filipino dish adobo.

Filipino-Canadian celebrity chef Jordan Andino will help her prepare this signature dish.

Aside from the iconic viand, Gomez was also seen featuring the Filipino dessert turon or banana spring rolls on her television cooking show.

Meanwhile, local vinegar brand Datu Puti displayed on Gomez’s kitchen counter did not escape the eye of some Filipinos. This further fanned their excitement for the upcoming season.

Some quipped that the American artist will become the new endorser of the local condiments brand.

SELENA GOMEZ IS THE NEW ENDORSER OF DATU PUTI chz hahhahahahahaha pic.twitter.com/FM3Le0CUHg

&mdash steward little (@thoughtsofteb) January 14, 2021

Other Filipino fans shared their excitement for the Filipino dish feature.

THAT trailer. Ok can’t wait to watch you cook Filipino adobo @selenagomez

&mdash ken (@castroken) January 16, 2021

Adobo has placed the Philippines on the international cuisine map.

American cable channel Food Network has previously released recipes of adobo on its website while food blog Tasty, a brand of BuzzFeed, also shared its own versions of the viand.

One of Tasty’s viral recipes, braised pork belly adobo by Chef Leah Cohen, made online buzz last year because of the different manner of cooking the dish.

Watch party

Gomez’s “Selena + Chef” will air on streaming entertainment service HBO Max on January 21.

Lots are free. Lots are not. I have all the charging sites blocked both in search and link. Genealogy is a hobby for me and not something I need to pay for. Personally I find familysearch to be the best there is on the internet and totally free.

I fully agree with u and tree building geni.com
I enjoy family search.org unbelievable what u find

We have set up.a totally free website that you may hopefully find helpful

May I ask the name of your free website? I would love to check out your site and share it with all my friends that search.

https://www.openarch.nl/ > The multi-lingual websites Open Archives gives access to the biggest collection of Dutch records, includes phonetic search and search for two persons for free.

Does anyone know where I can find emigration records for Scotland?? My ggf Alix Greenberg left Braila, Romania some time in the late 1800s and wound up in Scotland. Also, where can I find Romanian Jewish records?? I would like to find out about my GGf’s Family. Thanks for any help!!

If you are researching English or Welsh family history, please take a look at my free site ogindex.org. It list genealogical data by place and year. It will show you which sources are free or subscription. Very rarely will data be only available on a paid site. This is my personal project of 5 years and grows all the time. Currently contains 352,000 data sets including all of Ancestry, Familysearch, Findmypast, Billiongraves, findagrave, etc. It will save you hours of research time.

These aren’t genealogy sites per se but they can be useful. As I mentioned above, many counties now put various records on-line. There are companies that provide these for various counties.

site:search.cogov.net
In the Google search results, select the county. The names are in the format Okwxyz where Ok stands for Oklahoma and wxyz are the first four letters of the county name, e.g., Cleveland County is /Okclev

Obviously above some of these sites are state-specific. But there are other companies in other states. Google (without quotes) phrases like “Harris County government records” or “Harris County Texas government records”

I signed up for some new service inadvertly. I don`t need it and want to cancel. I saw I somewhere I have until March 28 but cant get back there. Can you help?

no you can go back there if you have belive, because they will like to hear from you,

The photo of the woman holding the baby was taken near Priest River, Bonner county, Idaho in the 1930’s. The woman is my aunt, Marie Savage, The man in the middle is her brother, Arend Van Hoff, And I think the other man is her husband, Otho Savage.

Mike That picture is amazing and I was wondering who these people are. The man without the hat kind of looks like my father and having your input is quite helpful. My dad would have been too young to be in that picture, but it is uncanny how much they look alike. Priest River is not too far from where i grew up and I remember seeing many places like that and visiting some friends and family with little farms with like buildings

Looking for info re: Marie Testerman, supposedly b 1904 in Virginia. Later census data shows parents as George Testerman & Arminda (Neeley) Testerman, brothers, who were much older, Abraham & Luther. We suspect she may have been taken in by Testerman & not their natural child. Have not been able to find any record of her birth in Virginia or surrounding states. Any suggestions on where or how to search would be very, very much appreciated. Have been & continue to be an Ancestory member without success on this issue.

I am looking for a call whos birth name was Sherry, born 12/28/51 in Lebanon, Missouri.

Free genealogy records and publications containing the names of ancestors at http://genealogybeyondthebmd.blogspot.ca/

The wiewaswie website (for Dutch ancestors) has also an English search page. The transcripted information is in English, but the (if available) images are in Dutch.

Some of these sites are NOT FREE, they are connected with the LDS church. You can search for the info free, if you want to see it there is a fee.

The LDS church does NOT charge fees.

The LDS church has BY FAR the largest genealogy collection in the world–MUCH larger than Ancestry. However, LDS does genealogy for RELIGIOUS reasons, NOT as any type of favor for the general public or even for Mormons.

The LDS digitization project generates about FIFTEEN TERABYTES of new images PER DAY. They don’t just “automatically scan and move on”, they also check individual image quality, etc.

What LDS did a few years ago is they said, “If images of specific documents are available from other sites, even commercial sites, why should we provide it for free? We need to use applicable financial resources for the things that are NOT available elsewhere.” So they partnered with Ancestry and a few other genealogy-related sites.

One thing that did is it made available FREE on FamilySearch a lot of the INDEXED data that ANCESTRY paid for. The FEE is because you will NOT be seeing images from FS, you will be seeing images ON the commercial site.

Also, I can tell you that Ancestry does a LOT of cleanup of documents. Certain document sets such as the 1940 U.S. census ARE available free elsewhere. When you look at THOSE images and compare them to the ones on Ancestry, It is very obvious that Ancestry has often done substantial enhancement.

Well said Rick. There is NEVER a charge to use familysearch. The only exception is the nominal fee to order films to be viewed at your Family History Center. If the image from the film is available on-line, you will be notified and you won’t need to or even be able to order the film.

As stated, by Rick. to view an image, you may sometimes be sent to a partner site that does charge, but familysearch gets no money from that source.

As of 1 Sep 2017, you will not be able to order films.

Thanks Rick. Many sites advertise as Free, as they offer a Free Trial for a limited time only. Often one discovers this only after entering the required information. It’s frustrating!

the LDS Church owns Familysearch, which is totally free to use. Other sites may be run by member of the Church, and they may even charge for the use of their sites, but they have nothing to do with the Church itself

If your local library has a library membership to ancestry, you can go to the library and use ancestry free.

You can also use Ancestry.com free at any LDS Family History Center. The Library Edition and the Institutional Edition do have limitations that the paid subscription does not have.

I am looking for my ancestors of KELLER (other forms: KIELER / KELER / KIELLER / KOHLER ) Family from JUKÓW (or JUKOW) in Poland.

Could you please give me the names of the ancestors or a link to your family tree to look for the ancestors?

My maiden name is Keller. From the research my uncle has done we are Swedish, German, Irish, native American but he could have missed something somewhere. Do you know if any of your family immigrated to America? If so maybe I can put you in touch with my father and you can find out if our ancestors are related.
Wishing you luck in your search,
Sonnett (Keller) Reyes

Although they are not genealogy sites per se, MANY U.S. counties now have their real estate records available on-line for free and often you can even see and download copies of the documents.

Just google County Clerk , e.g., Harris County Clerk, Texas. That will take you to the County Clerk’s website, then look for Property Records or Real Property Records or Real Estate Records.

(Be careful in big states. If you google Houston County Clerk, Texas, that’s a different county–you won’t get records for Houston, Texas, the county seat of HARRIS County.) Use Wikipedia or the U.S. Post Office ZIP lookup to find out the county. (Search for P.O. Box 1 in that city and state, then click on Mailing Industry Details.)

Often you can tell relationships of multiple signers, such as husband and wife or a man and a woman with the same surname deeding the property to someone else with the same surname–most likely a son or daughter.

Looking for native american on my grandfather side it was his great grandmother my grandfather name is Charles Henry Dellinger born 1906 died 1984 his mother name was Sadie Lease Dellinger Horn married to Milton Henry Dellinger I would like to know my great great great grandmother name and what Indian tribe my dad thought is was susquenna

This is a great list! I’m always correcting people when they say researching genealogy is too expensive – and when I do show them just a few of the free sites out there, they’re amazed!

EXAMPLE FULL TEXTED: PILLSBURY The genealogy book of the Pillsbury family will appear. Use any surname. Sometimes a county book may appear for example FULL TEXT: IRWIN ANDERSON You will be Adams County Ohio. Its a great way for free answers.

I shall be awake all night now having seen these free sites. Is there any good sites for criminals and convicts . Esp uk as shipped to Australia. It’s the court records I’m after thank you for reading I take my hat off to you all for doing a fabulous job

Genealogy Trails is an active FREE website with no ads. Was sorry to see that it didn’t make the list.

I’m with you on this one, Donna.
Some of them won’t give you any information at all , unless you pay/subscribe.

Several of the sites allow you to search for a surname. But, to get information about the surname, you have to pay and join the site.

This is a free site, I that I use quite often.

Can anyone give me sites for german research that is in English. I am having trouble finding anything. Thanks in advance

Facebook group: Germany Genealogy! Just Ask! I don’t really know much about it as I just joined but I think someone there will be able to help you. Good luck!

Two of the Best Free Newspaper sites, Australia and New Zealand -you never know where your family might go,
Australia = trove.nla.gov.au AND the OCR is correctable by all registered users (millions of lines already done) and New Zealand = paperspast.natlib.gov. nz

Trove is a fantastic resource but you don’t need to be a registered user to correct the text. I urge all users to make corrections as you find stuff but remember to correct exactly as it is in the original, commas, errors and all.

I agree with you Donna, especially if it is like I do, I forget to CANCEL the free trial and get charged at some point.

Another free to search site … records can be viewed:-
National Archives of Australia – http://www.naa.gov.au/

A great site for WV birth, death, and marriage records is wvculture.org

It appears that the site is currently down, but it may be a temporary issue. We will replace the link if it doesn’t come back up within a week. Thanks for alerting us.

Trying to find my Baptismal certificate from 1966-67. In New Jersey

I’m looking for the father of Joseph Martel born in April 1825 .Baie-du-febvre yamaska QC Canada. Joseph wife was hermine Alliar.

Thank you for all the hard work you do and for making this list. I use many of these wonderful free websites, and will add a few more I use.

I would also like to say that the Ancestry message boards are free to use, and have volunteers that can help you. http://boards.ancestry.com/

Also, when you are posting for help, please post birth dates, death dates, burial locations, and locations your family lived in. If it is a female, please post the maiden name, and married name. The more info you can give, the better help you will receive.

Thank you so much for the African Amercian site. The “African Heritage Project”, which is number 20 does not work and with your help hopefully I will find what am looking for.

Anyone know of Bohemia website – don’t know where in Bohemia/Austria and a Polish website to find records?

Czech Genealogy Society International is a free site: http://www.cgsi.org/
It has free on-line records for Czech, Bohemia and Slovenia records. You must know the district and village name to find the church for your village to find the records. The Eastern District did not do their own microfilming but had the LDS film their records. Districts vary as to the amount of records now online.

Go to familysearch.org, Hold your cursor on “Search” at the top of the page. Click on “Wiki”. Type Bohemia in the search box. This article tells how to search for records, what records are available, and provides links to records, indicating free or cost.

When you click “search” and a map comes up, click on the area you want to search, ie Bohemia.I do this for Croatia and a list of towns come up, click on the town you want and see the sources available.

Here is a link to include with the Seventh-Day Adventist obit index site. After they find which paper the obit is in this site has most of them for viewing online. (Also Free)

Thank you for this great list. I have bookmarked many of them.

Thank you all so much for this information. I wanted you all to know that I truly appreciate all of the hard work you have done. You are all amazing!

I would love to find some records from Ujak, Austria-Hungary. My Grandma was Julia Zavatsky, born in 1894.

Was Zavatsky her maiden name or was that her surname after she married your grandfather?

I whole like to have 󈬢 Free Geneology Sites…” sent to my email address. I find it most valuable. Please send it to me.

Thanks to all who put this together…..Trying to find the Pomerantz family from Galica, Austria


January 21, 2015 Day 2of the Seventh Year - History

Scott Dixon topped the speed charts at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. (Chris Owens photo courtesy of INDYCAR)

By John Sturbin | Senior Writer
RacinToday.com

A pragmatic Scott Dixon drove Chip Ganassi Racing to the top of the speed chart during Wednesday’s open practice for the 105 th Indianapolis 500, stealing the Day 2 headline from a pair of Ed Carpenter Racing teammates.

Dixon, the six-time/reigning NTT IndyCar Series champion, posted a best lap of 226.829 mph around the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway as track and air temperatures climbed compared to Tuesday’s Opening Day. The 2008 Indy 500 winner, Dixon led three CGR drivers in the top five.

“Yeah, it was definitely pretty interesting,” said Dixon, driver of the No. 9 Honda. “I think as most will say, the big times don’t really mean much. You just kind of get a bit lucky and throw them up, but I think our cars definitely have good speed, all four in the top eight there, which is good to see.

“I’d rather be knocking out a lot of quick times at ease than being down on the bottom and scraping the barrel. I think our cars in the past have had decent speed in race-winning configurations, but it doesn’t really do you much good in the race. You need to be able to stay close, be able to move through the pack if you have any upsets or mistakes or if you even start a little further back at the initial start of the race. So yeah, it’s definitely all about making sure you can stay close.”

Dixon, a native of New Zealand, added he actually felt more comfortable Tuesday, when his best speed was 224.988 mph. Recall that Dixon won the season’s first oval race on Texas Motor Speedway’s high-banked/1.5-mile layout in Fort Worth on May 1.

“Once it gets a bit hotter, I think everybody has a bit of washout, and it’s harder to stay closer,” Dixon said. “We’ll see with the race, but it looks right now like the race will be pretty cool, which will definitely make for a pretty robust race for people to watch. It’s going to be tight.”

Green flag for “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” is Sunday, May 30.

Meanwhile, Ed Carpenter Racing claimed the second and third spots on the speed chart. Conor Daly was second-fast at 226.372 mph in the No. 47 Chevrolet, while team-owner/oval specialist Ed Carpenter was third at 226.103 mph in the No. 20 Chevrolet.

“The speed charts don’t necessarily mean a ton,” said Carpenter, echoing Dixon’s remarks. “Those are more representative of just getting a bunch of cars in front of you with the right gap and putting up a time.

“I mean, it’s nice for the team, depending on the time sheets. But I think more importantly we’re all feeling pretty good and making progress with the cars. Soon we’ll find out what we have for speed, too.”

ECR is surging during the Month of May, as Rinus VeeKay of The Netherlands won the GMR Grand Prix on the IMS road-course last Saturday.

“I think the team has done an incredible job, obviously,” Daly said. “Both of our cars were fast last weekend, which is great, and I think our cars have a lot of speed here, as well. I know my own journey with the team has probably been a little bit more difficult, but I think we’ve definitely rounded a nice corner for sure recently. I think they’ve done a lot for me personally because my style has required a little bit more work with this generation car.

“If the team is winning, that’s great. Know what I mean? I think it’s good for Ed, it’s good for all of our partners, it’s good for everyone involved. I would also like to have a trophy, though, too. I think that’s why we keep trying every day, we keep showing up and ready to do the job.”

Carpenter deadpanned: “We’ll get you a trophy.”

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Marcus Ericsson and Tony Kanaan rounded out the top five. Ericsson, a native of Sweden, was fourth at 226.007 mph in the No. 8 CGR Honda. Kanaan _ the 2013 Indy 500 winner, 2004 series champ and native of Brazil _ placed fifth at 225.774 mph in the No. 48 Honda.

“There are so many competitive cars out there, so, as always, it’s going to be a very tough race,” said Dixon, the current championship point leader. “Happy all the Ganassi cars are fast. Nice to see the No. 9 up top.”

The speed chart showed the unpredictable nature of this year’s field, which features nine 500 winners. Australian Will Power, the 2018 Indy 500 champ who led practice Tuesday at 226.470 mph, was 15th Wednesday at 224.785 mph in the No. 12 Team Penske Chevrolet.

As was the case Tuesday, all of Wednesday’s top speeds were the products of aerodynamic tows in heavy traffic, as 34 drivers combined to turn 3,326 laps during the six-hour session. Alexander Rossi, the 2016 Indy 500 champ, was the fastest driver running alone, turning a top no-tow lap of 221.114 mph in the No. 27 Honda fielded by Andretti Autosport.

“We had a good car yesterday from the get-go, but overnight we worked on trying to get the car a bit better in dirty air and in a big group, and that’s been a big improvement,” Ericsson said. “I feel like I can stay on the throttle in big groups, and that’s the key around here.”

RC Enerson completed Phase 2 and the speed requirement for Phase 3 of the Rookie Orientation Program in the No. 75 Top Gun Racing Chevrolet in a special session before the track opened for practice. However, Enerson did not participate in the open session.

Practice is scheduled to run from noon-6 p.m. (EDT) Thursday. It’s the last day before boost levels are elevated in the engine turbochargers for the “Fast Friday” practice and qualifying on Saturday and Sunday. The additional horsepower will raise speeds while establishing the field of 33 starters.

The traditional final practice _ two hours on Miller Lite Carb Day _ is booked for Friday, May 28.

Live Race Day coverage will be carried on NBC and the INDYCAR Radio Network beginning at 11 a.m. (EDT), on Sunday, May 30, with the green flag set for 12:30 p.m.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in Ontario, Canada focusing on health-and-safety measures, organizers representing the Honda Indy Toronto and IndyCar Series have jointly announced that this year’s event, originally set for July 9-11, will no longer be a part of the 2021 schedule.

“The NTT IndyCar Series race around Exhibition Place and Princes’ Gates is a hallmark of our summer schedule,” Mark Miles, Penske Entertainment Corp. president/CEO, said in a statement from Indianapolis. “To have that void for a second straight year is heartbreaking. We deeply miss our fans there and urge them to remain safe during these unprecedented times. INDYCAR looks forward to a high-powered return in 2022 and for years to come.”

The festival atmosphere on the Streets of Toronto has been a staple of INDYCAR since 1986. The list of champions includes legendary names including Bobby Rahal, Emerson Fittipaldi, Al Unser Jr., Michael Andretti, Alex Zanardi, Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon.

INDYCAR is considering various scenarios for the remainder of the 2021 calendar as it relates to cancellation of the Toronto event.

The current mid-summer portion of the schedule will resume Sunday, Aug. 8, for the inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville, with live coverage on NBC Sports Network.

That event is the first of three races on consecutive weekends, with the Nashville race followed by another historic NASCAR/INDYCAR weekend Saturday, Aug. 14, on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road-course followed by the oval at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Ill., on Saturday, Aug. 21.

NTT IndyCar Series point standings: 1, Scott Dixon, Chip Ganassi Racing, 176 2, Alex Palou, Chip Ganassi Racing, 163 3, Josef Newgarden, Team Penske, 148 4, Pato O’Ward, Arrow McLaren SP, 146 5, Graham Rahal, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, 137 6, Rinus VeeKay, Ed Carpenter Racing, 135 7, Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske, 130 8, Scott McLaughlin, Team Penske, 123 9, Will Power, Team Penske, 118 10, Colton Herta, Andretti Autosport, 117.

From their first show as the Warlocks at a pizza place in Menlo Park to their farewell stand with three sold-out 50th anniversary shows at Chicago&rsquos Soldier Field stadium, here are some key dates on the Grateful Dead&rsquos incredible journey.

May 5: Warlocks play Magoo&rsquos: Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron &ldquoPigpen&rdquo McKernan, Dana Morgan Jr. and Bill Kreutzmann play at Magoo&rsquos Pizza Parlor in Menlo Park as the Warlocks, an electric band that took shape at Dana Morgan&rsquos Music Store in Palo Alto.

June 18: Lesh on bass: Phil Lesh, recruited by Garcia to replace Morgan, plays his first show as bassist for the Warlocks at Frenchy&rsquos in Hayward.

Dec. 4: Can you pass the Acid Test? The group becomes a staple at author Ken Kesey&rsquos Acid Test parties. Kesey and his fledgling group the Merry Pranksters, which included Neal Cassady, hosted these legendary counterculture gatherings as public experimentations with LSD. It was the dawn of the San Francisco hippie era, and the Pranksters set the psychedelic scene.

Dec. 10: Fillmore first: The Grateful Dead, still known as the Warlocks, perform at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco for the first time, as part of Bill Graham&rsquos S.F. Mime Troupe Appeal Party II. The lineup also includes the John Handy Quintet, Jefferson Airplane and the Mystery Trend.

December: Grateful Dead born: The band changes its name after learning of another group called Warlocks. Garcia spotted the phrase &ldquograteful dead,&rdquo which the band later discovered to be from an Egyptian prayer, in a dictionary, and it stuck.

Jan. 22: Trips Festival: Kesey brings in the Dead to play the Trips Festival, held at the Longshoreman&rsquos Hall in San Francisco&rsquos North Beach. &ldquoThe truth about the Trips Festival is that it was a three-night, weekend-long rock &rsquon&rsquo roll dance with light effects. When the dull projections took over, as on Friday, it was nowhere. When the good rock music wailed, it was great,&rdquo wrote Chronicle Music Critic Ralph J. Gleason, who went on to become a founding editor of Rolling Stone.

Feb. 11: Stanley amplifies the Dead: Owsley Stanley, an early financier of the band, becomes the Grateful Dead&rsquos sound engineer. &ldquoWithout his technical innovations &mdash he was one of the first people to mix concerts live and in stereo &mdash the band might never have emerged from the San Francisco scene,&rdquo Rolling Stone wrote in a 2007 profile. Known on the West Coast as &ldquoMr. LSD,&rdquo Stanley also mass-produced acid when it was still legal. The Dead&rsquos song &ldquoAlice D. Millionaire&rdquo was inspired by newspaper accounts that described him as the &ldquoLSD millionaire.&rdquo

May 19: Avalon Ballroom: The Dead play their first show at Avalon Ballroom, located at Sutter Street and Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco. They played a total of 29 shows, and recorded two live albums &mdash &ldquoVintage Dead&rdquo and &ldquoHistoric Dead&rdquo &mdash there.

Dec. 31: Working for the man: Grateful Dead signs with Warner Bros. Records.

Jan. 14: First signs of the Summer of Love: At least 20,000 &mdash including some Hells Angels &mdash gathered at Golden Gate Park&rsquos Polo Field for the &ldquoGathering of the Tribes,&rdquo the prelude to the Summer of Love that came to be known as the &ldquoHuman Be-In.&rdquo &ldquoThe tribes gathered early in the day. Some came in their 20th century teepees, old school buses, caravans and VW buses, and lined the embankment, overlooking the field. Tambourines, drums, flutes and chiming bells appeared and the air was filled with the buzz of voices and the sound of music,&rdquo wrote Gleason, who affirmed that &ldquothere were no drunks.&rdquo

March 1: First album release: &ldquoGrateful Dead&rdquo: The Grateful Dead release their self-titled debut album on Warner Bros. &ldquoThe Grateful Dead have recorded for Warner Bros. an album which has everyone excited,&rdquo wrote Gleason. &ldquoThe Dead are the most consistently excellent rock group around, their instrument work is beautiful, they swing like angels and Warner Bros. has apparently gotten this wonderful feeling on the tapes of the sessions.&rdquo

June 18: Monterey Pop: The Grateful Dead play the Monterey Pop Festival, in between the Who and Jimi Hendrix (who famously sets his guitar on fire during his performance). &ldquoThe Grateful Dead did a fine set with some marvelously exciting and interesting guitar solos by Jerry Garcia and a great demonstration of their tightness and swing,&rdquo Gleason wrote.

Sept. 29: Hart beats: Bill Kreutzmann invites Mickey Hart to sit in with the Dead, making the band a sextet with two drummers. Two drummers! The pair become known as the Rhythm Devils.

Oct. 2: Hashbury bust: Band members and friends are busted in a pot raid at 710 Ashbury St. Rock Scully (the long-haired group&rsquos long-haired business manager) and audio engineer Bob Matthews were fined $200 each. Pigpen and Bob Weir were fined $100 each. All were placed on probation for a year.

March 3: Live on Haight Street: The band plays a free show on the back of a flatbed truck for thousands assembled on Haight Street. &ldquoA four-block stretch of fabled Haight Street yesterday was voluntarily surrendered to thousands of hippies and hippie-watchers. And the hippies did what they do best they transformed the street into a sunny arcade of pleasure, celebrating the now with unqualified exuberance,&rdquo wrote Jerry Carroll in The Chronicle on March 4, 1968. &ldquoThe Grateful Dead&rsquos full-throated roar drowned out a monotonous burglar alarm at one end of the street the Tracy&rsquos Coffee and Doughnuts people rolled their jukebox out on the sidewalk and countless trios and quartets formed and dissolved in between.&rdquo

July 18: &ldquoAnthem of the Sun&rdquo: The Grateful Dead release their second studio album, the decidedly psychedelic &ldquoAnthem of the Sun.&rdquo With this recording, future bandmate Tom (T.C.) Constanten contributes on keyboard, Dan Healy becomes sound man and Robert Hunter provides the lyrics to &ldquoAlligator.&rdquo

June 20: The Dead release &ldquoAoxomoxoa&rdquo: With &ldquoAoxomoxoa,&rdquo a hugely expensive studio album, the Dead bring keyboardist Constanten and lyricist Hunter on full time with the band. It includes the live staples &ldquoSt. Stephen,&rdquo &ldquoChina Cat Sunflower&rdquo and &ldquoCosmic Charlie.&rdquo

Aug. 17: Woodstock shock: The Dead give a famously poor performance at Woodstock. Among other complications, the rain caused the band&rsquos electric equipment to malfunction. Garcia and Weir have said that their microphones kept shocking them.

Nov. 10: &ldquoLive/Dead&rdquo out: &ldquoLive/Dead,&rdquo the first of many live albums by the Grateful Dead, is released. Compiled from concerts recorded in San Francisco between Jan. 26 and March 2, 1969, it remains one of their career highlights.

Dec. 6: Deadly Altamont: The Dead are scheduled to play the infamous Altamont Speedway Free Festival. The poorly organized event was meant to be the &ldquoWoodstock of the West.&rdquo Instead it turned into what some fans call &ldquothe concert that ended the &rsquo60s.&rdquo The Dead were supposed to play before the Rolling Stones, but never took the stage. They left before their set after learning that a member of the Hells Angels, who were &ldquohired&rdquo as security guards, knocked out Jefferson Airplane singer Marty Balin during his performance. Other violence during the concert resulted in two deaths. &ldquoIn 24 hours we created all the problems of our society in one place: congestion, violence, dehumanization,&rdquo Gleason wrote.

Jan. 30: New Orleans bust: Police arrest 19 people and seize LSD, marijuana, barbiturates and &ldquodangerous narcotic and non-narcotic drugs&rdquo in a raid of a French Quarter motel. Those arrested include Owsley Stanley (who identifies himself to police as the &ldquoKing of Acid&rdquo), Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir.

Feb. 23: Winterland bailout: A benefit is held at Winterland with Jefferson Airplane, the Quicksilver Messenger Service, Santana, It&rsquos a Beautiful Day, and Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks to help raise money to cover the $37,000 bail charges racked up in the Dead&rsquos New Orleans bust. It raises $15,000.

June 14: &ldquoWorkingman&rsquos Dead&rdquo: &ldquoWorkingman&rsquos Dead,&rdquo recorded at Pacific High Recording Studio in San Francisco, marks a turn from psychedelia to a more country-rock sound, influenced by lyricist Hunter and the band&rsquos friendship with Crosby, Stills and Nash at the time. It is followed only five months later by &ldquoAmerican Beauty,&rdquo another classic studio album.

Oct. 19: Keith on the keys: Keith Godchaux plays his first show with the Dead as keyboardist.

Oct. 24: &ldquoGrateful Dead&rdquo: The Dead&rsquos seventh album, known as &ldquoSkull and Roses,&rdquo includes a callout to &ldquoDead Heads.&rdquo The album&rsquos sleeve included a message to fans: &ldquoDead Freaks Unite: Who are you? Where are you? How are you? Send us your name and address, and we&rsquoll keep you informed. Deadheads, P.O. Box 1065, San Rafael, California, 94901.&rdquo It was the beginning of perhaps the best-known fan club in music history.

March 25: Donna Godchaux adds vocals: Donna Jean Godchaux, who was married to keyboardist Keith Godchaux, joins the band on vocals.

March 8: Pigpen dies: Ron &ldquoPigpen&rdquo McKernan, the Dead&rsquos beloved keyboardist and vocalist, dies of liver failure in Corte Madera at age 27.

Oct. 16: Dead at the Winterland: The Dead play a five-night stand at the Winterland Ballroom.

Oct. 20: Dead take a break: Fans line up to see the Dead play at Winterland before the band takes a 19-month hiatus from touring.

July 12: Together again: The Dead perform their first official Bay Area show following the hiatus at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. &ldquoMusically, the band sounded as fresh and inventive as ever, if not more so. Although the band took the predictable long breaks between songs, many of the tunes were stitched together end-to-end, as the Dead played as tightly as a soul band,&rdquo Joel Selvin wrote in The Chronicle. The sold-out show was in such high demand that it was broadcast on KSAN-FM.

July 27: &ldquoTerrapin Station&rdquo: After 15 albums on Warner Bros., their own Round label and United Artists, the Grateful Dead release their first album for Arista Records, &ldquoTerrapin Station.&rdquo Arista remained their label for the rest of their recording career.

Sept. 14: Alive in Egypt: The Grateful Dead begin three days of shows at the Egyptian pyramids. &ldquoThe Great Pyramids of Giza have survived all kinds of visitors over the centuries, from the Roman legions to Napoleon. . So it was perhaps a matter of time until the stately pyramids would be wired for sound by an American rock band,&rdquo the Washington Post wrote.

April 16: Mydland joins on keys: Keyboardist Brent Mydland replaces Keith and Donna Godchaux.

July 23: Keith Godchaux dies in car crash: Keith Godchaux dies in a car accident in Marin County, at age 32, about a year after leaving the band. The sports car he was riding in struck a parked car.

Sept. 25: Dead for 15 years: To celebrate the band&rsquos 15th anniversary, the Dead open an 18-date run at the Warfield theater in San Francisco.

Oct. 31: Saturday Night Dead: The Grateful Dead make an appearance on &ldquoSaturday Night Live.&rdquo Tom Davis and Al Franken go backstage, asking the band to introduce them to the audience. In 1982, Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir appear on &ldquoLate Night With David Letterman.&rdquo

April 13: 20 years Dead: The Dead marks its 20-year anniversary with a three-night run at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley.

July 10: Garcia in a coma: Garcia collapses at his Marin County home and falls into a diabetic coma. A statement issued by the band said: &ldquoJerry Garcia is in a hospital receiving treatment for the sudden onset of diabetes and a general systemic infection as a result of an abscessed tooth and exhaustion following a road tour.&rdquo The band&rsquos publicist denies that drugs are involved.

July 6: &ldquoIn the Dark&rdquo LP: The Dead release &ldquoIn the Dark,&rdquo a comeback album featuring &ldquoTouch of Grey,&rdquo &ldquoHell in a Bucket,&rdquo &ldquoWest L.A. Fadeaway&rdquo and &ldquoThrowing Stones.&rdquo

Sept. 26: Dead reach top 40: &ldquoTouch of Grey&rdquo enters the Top 40 charts. It would go on to peak at No. 9, putting the Dead in the Top 10 for the first &mdash and last &mdash time.

Jan. 31: Dylan and the Dead: &ldquoDylan & the Dead&rdquo CD by Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead released. &ldquoTwo old war horses here &mdash one who can&rsquot sing the other who can&rsquot play &mdash captured in live performances from six 1987 concert dates together,&rdquo wrote Chronicle Music Critic Marty Racine. &ldquoAltogether, it&rsquos a pleasant enough affair for the Geritol set. One wonders, though. If this is the best from their tour, what can the outtakes sound like?&rdquo

July 26: Mydland overdoses: Mydland dies of a drug overdose in Lafayette at age 37. &ldquoDuring his first few years with the band, Mydland played in the shadow of the other more famous band members, but in recent years, he had come on as a stronger presence,&rdquo Kevin Leary wrote in The Chronicle. &ldquoNews of Mydland&rsquos death spread quickly through the close-knit Deadhead community, which follows the band&rsquos every move. The Grateful Dead Hotline, which provides information on concert dates and tickets, was besieged with calls by early afternoon,&rdquo Leary wrote.

Sept. 7: Vince Welnick joins: Vince Welnick, formerly of the Tubes, joins the Grateful Dead on keyboards after Mydland&rsquos death.

Sept. 15: Hornsby helps: Bruce Hornsby joins the band as a regular guest on keyboards.

January: Garcia neckties: In addition to slinging a guitar, Garcia, who briefly studied at San Francisco Art Institute, painted abstract works of art. Beginning in 1992, his works make an unlikely appearance on a line of neckties. &ldquoMr. Garcia, whose signature look is a black T-shirt and coordinated jeans and &lsquowho probably never wore a tie in his life,&rsquo laughed when he recently received a box of samples,&rdquo said Irwin Sternberg, the president of Stonehenge Ltd., which launched the ties. The neckwear, nonetheless, became popular with the 9-to-5 set.

August: Garcia cancels tour: Garcia cancels an 18-date East Coast tour scheduled to start in August after he collapses.

Jan. 19: Hall of Famers: The Grateful Dead are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the institution&rsquos ninth annual induction dinner.

Summer: Tour from hell: The band&rsquos summer of 1995 tour would become known to Deadheads as the &ldquoTour From Hell.&rdquo At the time, Garcia was having issues with drugs and had also been receiving death threats, according to &ldquoNo Simple Highway: A Cultural History of the Grateful Dead.&rdquo To make matters worse, thousands of fans crashed a gate at one of the band&rsquos shows in, prompting the cancellation of the subsequent show because local police refused to work it. &ldquoWant to end the touring life of the Grateful Dead?&rdquo an Internet message board post from the band read. &ldquoAllow bottle-throwing gate-crashers to keep on thinking they&rsquore cool anarchists instead of the creeps they are.&rdquo In St. Louis that summer, the deck at a campground where many fans were staying for a Dead show collapsed, sending 108 people to the hospital.

July 9: Last call: The Grateful Dead perform their 2,314th &mdash and final &mdash concert at Soldier Field in Chicago. The last music performed by the entire band is a medley of &ldquoBlack Muddy River&rdquo and &ldquoBox of Rain.&rdquo

Aug. 9: Jerry dies: Jerry Garcia dies at a drug treatment center in Marin County at age 53. He had checked in two days earlier. What started as a sunny day in the Haight turned dark and somber as people learned of Garcia&rsquos death. &ldquoPeople like Jerry Garcia aren&rsquot supposed to die. The head Deadhead is immortal. Now he&rsquoll be gone for a long time, this lovable, huggable bear with the twinkly eyes and the best of vibes,&rdquo wrote Chronicle columnist Herb Caen.

Aug. 13: Deadheads pay respect: Garcia is celebrated by family and thousands of friends in Golden Gate Park.

After the band splits up, the band members form several (sometimes overlapping) side projects, including RatDog, Bobby and the Midnites, the Other Ones, the Dead, Furthur, Dark Star Orchestra, Rhythm Devils, Missing Man Formation, Move Me Brightly and others.

June 2: Welnick commits suicide: Suffering from depression, Welnick takes his own life. He is the fourth Grateful Dead keyboardist to die.

Feb. 4: Deadheads for Obama: Ahead of the Super Tuesday primaries, Lesh, Weir and Hart perform together at the Warfield theater in San Francisco in support of candidate Barack Obama.

Jan. 16: Raising the Dead: Surviving members &mdash guitarist Weir, 67, bassist Lesh, 75, and drummers Kreutzmann, 69, and Hart, 71 &mdash resurrect the Dead with a final tour to celebrate the band&rsquos 50th anniversary. The 2015 &ldquoFare Thee Well&rdquo tour includes shows in Santa Clara and Chicago, with with Phish singer-guitarist Trey Anastasio and keyboardist Bruce Hornsby along for the band&rsquos final ride.


Vikings Franchise Timeline

FRANCHISE FOUNDED— Minnesota was granted an NFL franchise at the league owners' meetings in Miami on Jan. 28, 1960. The team began play in 1961. The founding group consisted of Max Winter, E. William Boyer, H.P Skoglund, Ole Haugsrud and Bernard H. Ridder, Jr.

ROSE NAMED GENERAL MANAGER — In late summer, 1960, former Los Angeles Rams Public Relations Director Bert Rose was named the team's first General Manager.

TEAM NICKNAMED — In one of his first moves with the team, Bert Rose recommended the nickname "Vikings" to the Board of Directors. The name was selected because it represented both an aggressive person with the will to win and the Nordic tradition in the northern Midwest.

FIRST HEAD COACH — Norm Van Brocklin was selected as the first head coach in franchise history. He retired as a player in 1960 after 12 seasons in the NFL as a Hall of Fame QB.

FIRST COLLEGE DRAFT — On Dec. 27, 1960, RB Tommy Mason of Tulane was taken with the 1st overall choice and the first-ever draft pick utilized by the Vikings. Also selected that year were QB Fran Tarkenton (3rd round) and DB Ed Sharockman (5th round).

EXPANSION DRAFT — Following the 1960 season, the Vikings were allowed to select 3 players from the roster of each team after each team was allowed to protect 30 of their 38 players. Dallas was exempt from this process. Among the players selected were OL Grady Alderman (Detroit) and RB Hugh McElhenny (San Francisco).

ASSIGNED CONFERENCE — On April 12, 1961, the NFL assigned the Vikings to the Western Conference. Minnesota joined Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the conference.

FIRST GAME — In the first game in franchise history, the Vikings played the Dallas Cowboys in a preseason game in Sioux Falls, SD, on Aug. 5, 1961. The Cowboys defeated the Vikings, 38- 13.

FIRST HOME GAME — The Minnesota Vikings played the Los Angeles Rams in preseason action at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, MN, on Sept. 10, 1961, the team's first game in the Twin Cities. The Rams defeated the Vikings, 21-17.

FIRST REGULAR-SEASON GAME — In a stunning upset, the Vikings defeated the Chicago Bears, 37-13, at Metropolitan Stadium in the Vikings' first NFL regular-season game on Sept. 17, 1961. Kicker Mike Mercer scored the first points in team history with a 12-yard field goal. Bob Schnelker scored the team's first touchdown on a 14-yard pass from Fran Tarkenton. In his NFL debut Tarkenton came off the bench to complete 17-of-23 passes for 250 yards and 4 touchdowns.

FIRST PRO BOWLERS — On Jan. 14, 1962, RB Hugh McElhenny and WR Jerry Reichow became the first Vikings to compete in the Pro Bowl. They were part of the Western Conference All-Stars who beat the Eastern Conference squad, 31-30, at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

FIRST ALL-PRO — In 1963 RB Tommy Mason, who was the team's first ever draft choice, was the first Vikings player to earn All-Pro recognition. He was a consensus pick after rushing for 763 yards and 7 touchdowns on 166 carries (4.6 avg.).

FINKS HIRED — In September, 1964, Jim Finks was named the team's second general manager, succeeding Bert Rose, who resigned in June, 1964. Finks previously had served as general manager for Calgary of the Canadian Football League for 7 years.

FIRST WINNING SEASON — Minnesota won its final 3 regular-season games in 1964 to achieve the first winning season in team history with an 8-5-1 record. The Vikings tied for 2nd in the NFL Western Conference behind Baltimore.

MET EXPANDED — A new grandstand was constructed on the east side of Metropolitan Stadium that increased capacity from 41,200 to 47,200. The new seats were formally dedicated on Aug. 20, 1965, when Minnesota played Philadelphia in a preseason game.

NFL RE-ALIGNED — On Dec. 2, 1966, Minnesota, Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay were chosen to make up the newly-formed Central Division of the Western Conference of the NFL.

VAN BROCKLIN RESIGNS — After compiling a 29-51-4 record while leading the Vikings in their first six years of existence, Head Coach Norm Van Brocklin resigned in February, 1967.
