It seems that a large number of people must have organizing their genealogy files as a New Year's Resolution, at least for 2018 anyway. I have received many emails, read many articles, and observed many classes that are devoted to organizing. This is no small feat for genealogists as we accumulate a variety of types of artifacts and these all come in one or both formats of hard-copy and digital. I consider myself to be organized but admit to being overwhelmed at times. Ancestry.com posted a Blog that provides 7 steps to getting organized. I especially like number 7, "Make it a Habit". Ready! Set! Here we go with #2...because doncha' know, I've got #1 down already!

      Winter is coming

      12/08/2017

      No, not the Game of Thrones.  I wish though.   Just thought that my primary genealogy season is usually the winter and early Spring.  Not sure what time you have available, but this works for me.

      The Spring Slowdown

      04/23/2017

      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!!!!!
