Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your Genealogy Research Trip

It's Saturday Night - 

time for more Genealogy Fun! 

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

1)  Have you taken a genealogy research trip and/or vacation to see relatives, research in repositories, walk the ancestral property, etc.?

2)  Tell us about it in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook.

Here's mine:

In May of 2004,  Linda and I had a two week vacation to the Northeast.  We flew into Baltimore, and drove to Easton, Pennsylvania to attend my cousin's 50th anniversary party there, and then we stopped in Newton, New Jersey to do research there; we visited Cooperstown, New York to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame;  then it was onward to Watertown, New York to visit the Watertown area libraries and visit the Ranslow Smith homestead in Henderson; then north to Ontario, and along the north shore of Lake Ontario to Toronto and visited the CN Tower; we stayed two nights at Niagara Falls; then south through Buffalo and Erie to Mercer County in Pennsylvania to do Carringer and Feather research; onward to Maryland and DC for sightseeing and a library visit; and back to Baltimore;  all the while doing genealogy along the way. There are 4 blog posts:
