Hey Seaver! Here I Am.

Randy Seaver over at GeneaMusings is having his regular Saturday Night Genealogy Fun party. He really means to have fun this week. I don't want to spoil it so head on over and check it out yourself.

Seaver also asks where I've been lately. How nice to be missed. Not missed enough to call out the National Guard or put my face on milk cartons though. What's up with that?

I haven't blogged in some time and I feel just awful about it. The reason, I am thrilled to say, is that business has picked up and I have been working my tail off. I will share what a typical day has been like for me in a future post. The post I wrote about starting a new genealogy business was so well received so I have more on the way.

I also took a week (an entire 7 days) and went to Rio del Mar. For those who are not familiar with California, Rio del Mar is a little town on the northern California coast about 8 miles south of Santa Cruz and about 40 miles south of San Francisco.

I spent 7 days doing absolutely NOTHING! It was heaven.

I am also participating in what I feel is a very worthwhile and interesting project. LowCountry Africana has partnered with Footnote.com to index estate inventories from South Carolina for the years 1732 to 1872. This database is a free one at Footnote. Some of the inventories are so detailed it makes you feel like you are there. They have put out a call for volunteers to index just 10 pages. If enough people did 10 pages each, the project would be finished in no time at all. AND there is a reward! On top of feeling good for giving back to the genealogical community you will get this groovy badge to place on your blog.

And finally, here is someone who is truly showing me some love!


  1. Hey Fenley,I See You...

    LOL...ROFL...senior moment, can't remember what those mean...let's see, LOL is my granddaughter's initials...

    Glad to see you survived Rio del Mar (River of the Sea?) - how did you spend 7 days without any Internet or chatting or whatever?

    Glad your business is working out for you - keep it up!

    Cheers -- Seaver

  2. Sheri, you are just tooooooo cool!

    I thought of you when I was at the DAR library in Paris, KY.

  4. Well it looks like the face on the milk carton worked - you showed back up! Love the milk carton AND the tatoo. It's good to hear business is good for someone these days!

  5. Sheri - You sure started some fun with that awesome blog post that helped us all make creative genealogy images!

    I love your tattoo image!


  6. Pleased that business is going well for you and that you had a lovely Chill Out. Love the tattoo :-) Welcome back

  7. Wow! You have been busy! Thanks for the link to the LowCountry indexing project. I've already signed up and can't wait to get started. I'm interested to see how things are getting done. Maybe I'll get some ideas to help out with my own project!

  8. Interesting info! I enjoy reading these types of posts.
