Saturday Night Fun Datafile Statistics

Your mission this week, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  If you have your family tree research in a Genealogy Management Program (GMP), whether a computer software program or an online family tree, figure out how to find how many persons, places, sources, etc. are in your database (hint:  the Help button is your friend!)

Ok I have 2065 people in my database, 791 Marriages, places???, Sources 0 ( I do not use that feature, I put my sources in my notes).

Saturday Night Fun Fathers Day

1)  Sunday, 16 June, is Father's Day.  Let's celebrate by writing a blog post about our Father, or another significant male ancestor (e.g., a grandfather).

2)  What are three things about your father (or significant male ancestor) that you vividly remember about him?

This was on his 95th birthday, and he had 6 more and was close to number 7 when he died.

  1. Pop could fix almost everything, he worked as a mechanic starting in the 1930s, during the war he ran the motor pool for a service squadron that serviced B17s and B24s.
  2. He was good at building things, from our lake cabin to a riding lawn-mower-snow blower.
  3. He was always reading, newspapers, books, magazines, etc

Saturday Night Fun Fun Week

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

The writer of Saturday Night Genealogy Fun is having too much fun at the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree this week and is unable to think up something fun for YOU to do.  So I'm going to rely on that old standby of:

What Genealogy Fun Have You Had This Week?"

September 21, 2013 is our Walking With Ancestors "Remembering the Iron Horse Era in Spokane" and as a guide this year I am to guide people to this monument where the remains of several railroad workers were buried after a big explosion killed them on September 6, 1890.

I did not know for sure where this monument was, just at the end of a dirt road near the hill, so I stopped by the cemetery on my way downtown going to the library. Took this horrible picture of the monument, and then went to the library and looked up the newspaper article on the explosion. So now all I need to do is dress up as a railroad worker and guide people to the monument.
