Looks like our "regularly" scheduled Friday Open Thread diary was MIA.  Since we don't have the Open Thread time written in stone, I thought I'd give it until this evening to put up a substitute, if necessary.  But I didn't plan on the training session I was in to take as long as it did, so I wasn't available to do this until just now.

Sorry 'bout that.

I figured you guys would see it in your stream, no matter what time it posts.  So whether it's tonight or tomorrow, we can still share our genealogy stories/discoveries/misadventures/etc.

What have I been doing this week?  Nothing constructive.  Not intentionally, though.  An LDS film came in that turned out to be totally useless.  Well, not totally, as I can scratch one theory that didn't pan out off my list.  

I posted a question on a German family group board, and they responded back to me with the same question I thought I asked them.  Hmm, ok, not fruitful.  Maybe I need to brush up on my German.  

I requested some help from familysearch.org, asking assistance with a film of a churchbook with pages where the ink is so badly faded that it's illegible.  No response.

(sigh)

So I'm looking at my brick walls.  They're look back at me.  Laughing.  I think they're taunting me.  It's a war of wills, and they're currently winning.

So, what's going on with y'all.  Anything interesting?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
