    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!!
