Countdown to my 2014 Genealogy Road Trip

In 8 more days I will retire and hit the road for a 'little' 2600+ mile genealogy road trip through the midwestern United States.  I have spent the past year trying to prepare, but there is still so much I could have done.  It has forced me to review all the basic information I have for my ancestors and my attempts to fill in the tree down from the known ancestors.

In January this year our pastor (who is amateur/hobbyist photographer) spoke to our genealogy group about how to take better pictures.  He said he starts all of his days of photography by asking God to surprise him.  I told him that is NOT what I want to happen when I am in a cemetery photographing gravestones!  SURPRISE!   NOOOOOOOOOOO!  :-)

Looking forward to small town cafes and interesting stories along the way.
