Notes from the past…

The Stephens-McCullough Family is online!

I met a new “cousin” online a few days ago. She had responded to a post I had left on another website about a couple of tin-plate images I have of some of my ex-husband’s family. So, we began sending emails to each other, asking for and exchanging information.
Well, I realized I need to add the work I have done on his family to my website, where my new “cousin” and anyone else who needs it can find it. So, that has been my project for this weekend. Only problem is…when I added all that information to my FTM, I was being lazy and didn’t put in all of the sources!

Now I gotta go back and add all that in.
But that’s ok, cuz I’m glad I met someone new!

A new look!

My cousin Susan made this great template for me! Matches my website perfectly! Thanks Susan!
I got an email yesterday about my other research project, my ex-husband’s family. Hopefully, this lady may be able to give me another piece of the puzzle!
I don’t have that family online, yet. That will be a big task for another day!
Back to my family now. I have gotten a lot of info recently that needs to be added to my database (and documented, of course!). I’ve been so busy playing with this blog and moving to, and combining and updating my website at RootWeb, that I have neglected the bottom line!
So, quit playing and get back to work!

The grande tour!

A very exciting day! I got up at 6AM and sped off to Hill County to photograph and index the Graham-Mason Cemetery. I arrived at the cemetery gate only a few minutes ahead of the folks, Frank & Judy, with the key to the cemetery gate. They quickly arrived and we introduced ourselves. A very nice couple! I began to photograph each stone and as I went up and down the rows, Judy walked with me and “introduced” me to each person buried there. She and her husband Frank were both very kind and very helpful. After about an hour, I was finished, so Judy and I went back to Hillsboro while Frank completed his job of “weed-eating” the cemetery. Judy and I then visited The Old Jailhouse Museum in Hillsboro. An absolutely fascinating place! Several rooms are filled with relics, photos, documents of Hill County, Texas. A historical treasure chest! I didn’t find any of my “target” ancestors, but still thoroughly enjoyed the museum tour. Frank met us at the museum and we all went to lunch, and talked more about our mutual passions for genealogy and cemeteries.
When I got home, I uploaded all the photos and the information to my
Bluebonnet Country Genealogy website. A very productive day indeed!
I also emailed photos of some of the ancestors that we share to Frank & Judy.
A funtastic day!
