More genealogy data is now available on FamilySearch.org. Amazing how quickly it is being added.
Most serious family historians and genealogists are aware of the progress of the digitization of the 2.4 million rolls of microfilm archived in the vast Granite Vault outside of Salt Lake City, Utah by The Church of Jesus Chr...

We have had some recent successes. Water levels in WCA-3A are decreasing (except after rain events). The Everglades Restoration Transition Project Biological Opinion was signed. The Corps of Engineers is working on Increment 1 Plus of the Modified Waters project to raise stages in the L-29 Canal to 7.8' this year and up to 8.5' before 2018. The Decomp Physical Model test has been extended for another 2 years. Most of the properties along Tamiami Trail have been purchased so the road raising and bridge construction can move ahead. 8.5 Square Mile Area is being protected by a new levee. All of these are steps toward the restoration of the Everglades system.

I have added another post to my blog. That is five since I returned from RootsTech earlier this month. I hope everyone is getting something out of them and let me know if you have any specific requests for future posts. http://milesgenealogy.blogspot.com/2016/02/familysearch-apps-kinpoint.html
I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I have been working with our local Family History Consultants trying to bring them up to speed on all of the information that I learned at RootsTech. That could take a few weeks since ...

Federal and State partners are working to improve conditions in Florida Bay through a variety of projects, including bridging Tamiami Trail, increasing flows to Shark River Slough, and storing water along the eastern boundary (South Dade Detention Basins). But it isn't happening fast enough.   http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/25/politics/national-park-anniversary-florida-everglades/index.html

This year is on the way to being the deadliest year on record for the Florida panther. Here's one that managed to be rescued along Alligator Alley. http://www.wftv.com/news/local/trapped-florida-panther-rescued-along-alligator-alley/316005663

Story
Introduction
I am actively involved in church, Boy Scouts, and family history. I enjoy teaching people about their environment, how cultural biases influence our views of the world around us and how those views have changed over time. I also enjoy teaching and speaking on genealogy related topics. I am interested in trying out new tech toys, beta testing software and websites, and doing random research on many other topics. My current job is working on the restoration of the Everglades ecosystem.


Suggestions for Circles I would like to be involved in are Genealogy, LDS, Environment, Technology, Android Users, Scouting, as well as others.

Family names I am researching are Westerheide, Bielefeld, Wesner, Walker, Meyer, Mescher, Garman, Wise, Coker, Stueve, Bruns, Lexow, Reeder, LeBoeuf, Vickery and many others.
Bragging rights
I have a wonderful family who are involved in church and Scouting. My son earned his Eagle and Order of the Arrow at the age of 14.

Working with David Rome and Ted Busetto on our purchase of a Chevy Volt was a great experience. They gave us the time to test the vehicle and answered all our questions. We had been looking at several other cars and decided to try the internet sales department at George Moore instead of just getting the first sales person that saw us drive up. That was the right choice to make and resulted in less pressure from the sales people. David was prompt in responding to our internet request. One of your fellow dealers took about a week to respond to a request that was sent at the same time. We worked with Nate Bailey on the financing and payments. That took several days to finally get a correct contract. There were always numbers or math errors that could not be explained. We eventually got to a point where we agreed upon the contract. Even though we had problems with the contracts we enjoyed talking to Nate and he was always friendly.
