Monday, April 30, is the "Blogging Day of Silence" in honor of the Virginia Tech shooting victims. A genea-blogging free day? Probably not - some won't get the message, I fear.
Thursday, May 3 - Linda and I fly to Massachusetts for my Aunt Gerry's memorial service at 11 AM on Saturday in Leominster MA. I will have the laptop with me, and will probably have Internet access at the hotel, but I don't know how much genea-blogging I will do through Saturday.
Sunday, May 5 - we fly home this day from Massachusetts. And get ready to go to Santa Cruz on Tuesday for a week with the grandsons.
I'm not sure if I will get much genealogy research done in Massachusetts due to the compressed schedule. I want to get more pictures of family homes in the Leominster area - I have several more addresses now. I also want to go up to Ashburnham again and see if I can find my Aunt Marion's grave there. Then there is the library and school yearbooks, newspaper articles, etc.
There is a possibility that I will become the "keeper" of my aunt's family papers and photographs. If I am, then I will scan them all and share them on CDs with my cousins later in the year. Another task to do - but exploring the family treasures is always FUN!
