With the Coming Cold Weather...

Sign in to follow this  


I hope to spend more time at genealogy research. This summer, I was able to devote quite a bit of time working with my Mother on a book about her Grandmother, Alta May Thomas. I am truly thankful, both to spend the time with parents (as my Dad is also assisting) and to hear all the wonderful stories, the memories that Mom has of her Grandmother. I cannot wait to see the finished product. Part of my assistance was providing research support to validate facts and also find new information on Alta. It has been a wonderful journey of fantastic finds and quality time with my parents. However, as we are nearing the end of this project, I am looking to what I want to work on next.

I have multiple things I would like to resume work on for friends and family: a story about Linda's Mum, finding Christian's heritage through his Father's line, and continuing the tree for all of Hancock County (yes, that will take me a few years). I also would love to find out what area of Ireland the John Robinson family came from before emigrating to Pennsylvania. But I only have one week! Why the rush? In approximately one week, my youngest daughter, Michele, will be heading to Ireland with her boyfriend, Alex. So my challenge is to find out as much as I can about the Irish background on the Robinson line in one week. Of course, it is also possible that Michele's travels will not take her and Alex anywhere near where our ancestors lived in Ireland. No worries, it just means another trip for her and Alex...and perhaps Ron and I!

      The Spring Slowdown


      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
