Finger Lakes Mystery

My first mystery novel - set in the Finger Lakes
This is what has distracted me from my genealogy research over the past year. The book is finally published and can be found on Amazon.

I have started the second Caitlyn Jamison adventure and this one will include genealogy research that will be critical to solving the murder. Can't wait to work out that scenario.

Happy Thanksgiving and White Friday

Sitting around the table last evening for our holiday eve dinner, I realized once again that the most important thing in life is family, friends, and good health. In our small family gathering last evening, I knew that we were blessed with each.

I enjoyed a recent Dick Eastman blog post featuring The Heirloom Registry's suggestion that people participate in White Friday. White Friday is when a family sleeps in, has breakfast together, then goes around the house looking for items with a history. The registry has a downloadable form if desired, but the object is to document the family heirlooms. For larger items, the documentation can be attached to the back; for smaller ones, the documentation can be filed with other important papers - maybe your will?

Enjoy and cherish the family time, and have a fun-filled White Friday!
