The woman behind viral Police Office Doug Barney funeral procession photo has been found, and Louise Redmond a sweetheart who suffered greatly to honor our fallen officer.
Thousands of Utahns lined the procession route on the day of officer Barney's funeral. But it was one photo of a woman on the side of the street that was shared thousands of time all over the world.

#genealogy  The site "A vision of Britain Through Time" will help find your ancestors in England. See links to records, maps and historical information about their home towns thanks to the site.   

My ancestors were married in St. Mary's Church which is located just a short distance from Major Oak in Sherwood Forest.  The family lived in Edwinstowe for many generations.  Did they know the real Robin Hood or the amalgam of personalities that later became the character with that name?

Who knows, but it is fun tracing them and their stories.

#Medicinal #Drugs used in conventional applications and operations suffer shortages all across America. The causes range from safety rules to low profits. Doctors have to choose which patient will suffer and possibly die. Is this yet another great American secret?
Such shortages are the new normal in American medicine. But the rationing that results has been largely hidden from patients and the public.

Are Obituaries a Uniquely North American Tradition?  #genealogy  *Why Do Some Obituaries Go Viral?* #obituary  
Obituaries tend to be formulaic and utterly respectful, but the tone is shifting to humorous, candid, and sometimes vengeful.

#SteveMartin and #EdieBrickell Made A Beautiful Music Video In An Elevator.  So it says on the Nerdist and I agree.  Steve's music is always full of fun and toe tapping rhythms.  Edie's voice captivates and is instantly recognizable.  

Put the two of them together in an elevator and add a collection of characters and what do you get?  Let's say it again just like many others have today @SteveMartinToGo and @EdieBrickell's new song, I Won't Go Back is a delight.

#genealogy   A Town Where the Dead Outnumber the Living 1,000 to One   #cemetery   Colma, California has many residents but most of them are dead.  
The ratio is about 1,000 deceased to each living, breathing resident.

#lds   #temple Video tour of the new Provo City Center Temple of the LDS Church.  It's a beautiful recreation of the Victorian style of the original building with many other details from other well known LDS buildings.

#genealogy  The site of my ancestor, Susanna Martin's hanging as a #witch in #Salem , MA is now home to a Walgreens.  I was disgusted when I first visited that location years ago and it's conversion to a Walgreen's footprint hasn't improved my opinion of the site very much. I have nothing against Walgreen's but as a descendant of one of those who was murdered there in 1692, wish the property had been set aside as a memorial park.

Murder In Salem - Susanna Martin Hung as a Witch.   http://www.leedrew.com/2009/03/murder-in-salem.html
Woods known as Proctor's Ledge, located behind a Walgreens in Salem, Massachusetts, have been confirmed to be the location of 19 hangings following the Salem Witch Trials in 1692.

A great future #genealogy story.  Detective #JackMook wins all the way around.  "I'm glad I let her break through that barrier and take me away from that life."  

Detective Mook's life went from great as a single man to terrific as a father and husband.

Introduction
My career has involved technology and corporate management across the spectrum.  Now I'm taking time to do things I thoroughly enjoy:
  • Genealogy research and instructor
  • Radio - Amateur Extra and VE
  • CERT organizer and instructor
  • Emergency Preparedness instructor
  • Microsoft Certified Instructor
  • Business Management Consultant
  • Church Service and Community Volunteer
Vacations have frequently involved traveling to find old family homesteads, cemeteries and records.

When not delving into dusty old records or enjoying family, I'm often on air in my ham shack.
Bragging rights
Terrific wife and family

Remember to take a thumb drive with you to the Family History Library because a great deal of the information there isn't online and / or can't be posted online due to usage agreements with the source owners. Add your name or a unique identifier on the outside of your thumb drive because many library patrons forget that they've left their drive plugged into a library computer. The collection of lost drives can be huge in the lost and found. Most of us won't remember an exact description of our drive to aid in its recovery. Experienced researchers usually have a text file on their drive(s) labeled "Owner Information" or a similar name that contains their contact info. WiFi is available to patrons of the library but image file sizes and numerous other issues are resolved via a thumb drive. Take a research plan with you to maximize your chances of research success. You may want to visit the FamilySearch Catalog at home prior to the trip and identify the books and films you want to view while in the library. Many seasoned researchers print the catalog page at home and write notes on the reverse side in the library, thus their notes are sourced automatically and can be scanned later for digital preservation. The information you discover may or may not fit on a piece of paper and it may or may not be worth the time to write on the paper, but a short note on it will create a memory entry that helps you decipher the quick notes and thoughts that you left for your future self. Lastly, take $$ change with you for use in the vending machines in the break room that is located in the northeast corner of the main floor. Most folks think that they will leave the building for lunch, yet when they start finding information, they rarely want to leave their research table or desk for longer than a few minutes. It's easy to discover that your time in the library is too valuable to be wasted in such a 'mundane activity' as lunch.
