Notes from the past…

Last week’s research activities

Leave a comment

A pretty good week with a total of 9 ancestors “processed” (research/review/update), including another murdered ancestor in San Saba, Texas! San Saba was a rough place in the late 1800s-early 1900′s. The actual murder total may be 3, but the third man needs more research. Maybe next week…:

  • Research and document my findings for
  1. Elmore Franklin Bennett
  2. Irene Bennett
  3. Sue Bennett
  4. George Bennett
  5. Earl Littlechild
  • Complete the Week 16 task for 31WBGB
  • Update both my Freepages site and WorldConnect database
  • Add 2 direct-line ancestors to my research wiki
  • If 31WBGB continues on hiatus, then I need to complete the task of adding inscriptions to the headstone photos at my 2 cemetery sites, Chatt-Jessie and Graham-Mason. Say, 25 per week.

It seems 31WBGB is suspended, so I’m taking it off my weekly list for now. I hope Tonia will start it up again soon!

Both sites have been updated, and I emailed a backup of my RootsMagic database to my Gmail account, snug in the cloud (until the next time Google forgets to pay its electric bill…).

Added 3GGF James Bennett, Sr and 2GGM Mary Lavina Bennett to my research wiki.

Inscriptions added to all headstones (22) at Graham-Mason Cemetery! This was the lesser task, as Chatt-Jessie Cemetery has over 100 headstones to update…

I also tweeked this site a bit. The Footnote icon/link needed to be changed to Fold3. I get what Fold3 means, kinda cool, but it’s still a weird name for a website. Also added a Find-A-Grave icon/link and uploaded a bunch of headstone pix to the site at 3am this morning. Couldn’t sleep, might as well get some work done… :)

Plans for next week:

  • Research and document my findings for
  1. Henry Clay Bennett
  2. John W Bennett
  3. James Bennett, Jr
  4. Albert Bennett
  5. Millie A Armstrong
  • Update both my Freepages site and WorldConnect database and email a RootsMagic backup to my Gmail account
  • Add 2 direct-line ancestors to my research wiki
  • Continue to add inscriptions to the headstone photos at Chatt-Jessie Cemetery
