Ol’ Myrt is happy to report that she AND her “new” luggage have arrived safely home from the marvelous 2008 Legacy Family Tree Baltic Sea Cruise. After five hours sleep, I am bursting at the seams to blog about my experiences with some 200 other genealogy researchers (including a few others who joined our class sessions having heard about the Legacy group while on the cruise.) And for those who were curious, YES, I did find Megan Smolenyak was on the same cruise, which was a tender family retreat honoring her deceased mother.
WHILE I WAS GONE, FamilySearch.org changed it’s main page, so go visit it. More is sure to come later on this topic. See www.familysearch.org.
JUST SO I CAN REMEMBER what came to mind for blog topics when I awoke this morning, Ol’ Myrt here will include a few notes so I can expand the list into individual blog entries AFTER the 14,736 emails download. Our Facebook friend, Megan was correct when describing this as a “tsunami of emails...”
Ol' Myrt here has been impacted of late by the deaths of dear friends and fellow genealogy researchers.
Plans are set in motion for the August Share and a field trip to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers historian's office.
Gee whillikers! From the looks of that list I certainly have enough to talk about. (And I haven’t given more a cursory glance to the genea-blogs yet!)
‘Nuff said for now... I am off to swim a few laps to work out the kinks from yesterday’s monumental plane trips – Heathrow to JFK, JFK back to the terminal (due to an incapacitated passenger), JFK to Salt Lake City.
PS: I’ve also got to trace my “OLD” luggage, which played hopscotch throughout Europe and the Middle East whilst I was learning about the history and culture of Copenhagen, Rostock (Germany), St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Tallinn (Estonia), Stockholm and London.
Looks like I am getting used to the use of the term "whilst".
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
