What event(s) do you have coming this month? Vacation? End of school? Graduation? Wedding? June is a big month for lots of reasons. What’s one thing you’re anticipating this month? How ready are you for it?

We have lots of birthday’s coming up, so I’ll be planning a few parties as usual. I’m thankful, no weddings on the horizon; that’s a good thing. I do want to start meeting with my daughter Brandy once a month; just a little get together with the girls. All the kids are all growing up so fast. I still want to take the kids kite flying this month, that’s been on the list. Lots of little things to do as well.

I’ve spent the last two days looking over my family tree, trying to fix any mistakes that I may have. I’m sure there are many. Just when I’m convinced that I have the right person, I find something wrong with the dates. Today, I almost stopped working because, I thought, this has to be wrong. No one agrees with my findings, then I found a census with all three generations living under the same roof, it doesn’t get any better than that. I knew I was right. I wanted to take a few minutes and email everybody, then I thought, nope… they can look for it themselves. Its always been the thrill of the hunt for me. I love it!

I do want to share a few finds this week. A man by the name of Richard Schultheiss posted the headstones and their obits for many of my Mom’s people, like my Grandpa Odis LeRoy Stump & Grandma Elvia Mae Fugate Stump on the Find A Grave. I was so excited to see him link them to their parents & grandparents. What a wonderful way to see them without having to have a subscription to anything. I do wish more sites were like this. I don’t have any idea who he is, but can’t wait to interview him. I’m going to have to get in touch with him very soon, even if it’s just to say, “Thank you” for all of his hard-work and for sharing it with all of us. I did find about 50 more 1st cousins 5 times removed today, not sure where I want to stop, but as for now, I’ve rekindled the flame. I love hunt!

Goodnight, Everybody… I’m signing off. Welcome to all my new friends and thanks to our old friends. I appreciate you all, the nice comments y’all leave. I hope everybody has a wonderful relaxing weekend.
