Tennessee Breakthrough

After climbing back in the saddle over the weekend, I began to explore some of my old website haunts to see what I’d missed in my absence. A fellow family site (who has sadly pulled her site down in recent days; hope to see it come back, but I get how life might get in the way) posted a link that helped me source more than a dozen death and burial dates and locations on Sunday morning. The Familysearch.org beta site has really moved forward in the last few months. Several of their libraries including, Tennessee Death Records, 1874 – 1955 have proven invaluable.

If you haven’t been there in some time, pay them a visit. They provided several wonderful hours of discovery for me.

Toe in the water….

The last 6 months have been quite a journey. New city; relocation. New and bigger job. Lost close family member (and great friend). I cautiously say we are getting back to the “new normal”. I’m attempting to get back into my research and this outlet; as time and energy permit. In a funny way, all of this, the good and the bad, have led me to believe my efforts are more important than ever.

I was sharing some of my research, related to members of my family with military service experience, with my son (under 6) the other day. It was great to have this resource to show him what came before and why its important. He was actually pretty fascinated with the pictures and some of the stories. This is definitely,….defintely worth it!
