  •  Well, I don't know where my head was. VOLUNTEERS! (5+ / 0-)

    We need VOLUNTEERS to host a Friday GFHC Open Thread.

    I should have posted this hours ago, but I apparently was otherwise preoccupied.

    Or something.

    Here's our current schedule

    Apr 19  Land of Enchantment
    Apr 26  klompendanser
    May 3   Ole Texan
    May 10 open for adoption
    May 17 open for adoption

    Hopefully some of our usual stragglers will mosey on through, see the volunteer list and raise their hand for a date.

    Right?  Am I right?

    Then prove me right!  Volunteers?

      I'm next week. Glad I remembered to check in, even if late, so I got the reminder.

      I've been working through a big project. Last summer, I visited several old cemeteries in New England in conjunction with the Netroots Nation trip. I have finally started to process it all. I've found things to add to my tree, back to 6th or 7th great grandparents.

      But, also, I just zoomed through the cemeteries taking a whole bunch of pictures. Any names I recognized (potentially related), anything quirky, plus things disintegrating - before the info is lost forever. Over a thousand all told.

      So now, I'm working through findagrave, uploading it all. I've had to create a few hundred memorials already, people who weren't previously listed. And I'm adding pictures to many others. Big job, which is mostly keeping me busy at the moment. Now and again, I find unexpected tie-ins to my own tree, too. It feels good to finally be getting it done, coming up on a year later. I'll be glad when it's totally done!!

      Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
