#memorialday   #genealogy   Once again it's time for the holiday visit to cemeteries and in my case, it's also time for the cemetery soft shoe... We look forward to visiting our ancestors graves every year where we remember them, tell their stories, thank them for their military service and teach our own descendants about their lineage and heritage.
Some of my earliest memories of visiting extended family members involves adhoc meetings by ancestors graves on Decoration Day. Yes, I'm old enough to know 'Memorial Day' as 'Decoration Day'. My mother always made sure that we visited all of the graves of her ancestors and my fathers ancestors ...

#fortmcmurrayfire   Wow! Dash Cam of the Fort McMurray fire as vehicles try to escape. Embers landing on them. Homes across the street from the forest that is ablaze. Did folks have their #72hourkits  or were they unprepared for a disaster. This disaster brings home why we need to be prepared for emergencies. http://www.n7lrd.com/2010/02/96-hour-emergency-kit.html

It Wasn't Mrs. O'Leary's Cow
In 1893, Michael Ahern, a reporter for the Chicago Republican, admitted that he had fabricated the story of Mrs. O'Leary''s Cow kicking over a lantern that started the Great Chicago Fire. Chicago, Illinois - 4 October 1871 2,000 Acres of Buildings Destroyed...

#genealogy #photography  Genealogists and photographers will love the movie #findingvivianmaier   It is on #Netflix   and will capture your imagination.  Did she take a photo or photos of your family in and around Chicago or in the French Alps?  With over 100,000 photographs, the possibility is fairly high.  Good luck finding that one image that is so important to your family in her collection.
A documentary on the late Vivian Maier, a nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs earned her a posthumous reputation as one of the most accomplished street...

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.
