Genealogy Road Trip

Wow, the day has finally arrived. I am headed out on a short road trip. Stop one, D2’s house. I have some grandchildren to see. I have been wondering how the new school year is going for them; this is my opportunity to hear what they have to say. I am also looking forward to a visit with my daughter and son-in-law, who I do not see often enough.

Day two, and the first part of day three will be spent in a courthouse over in Western Michigan. Because I have been disappointed with the amount and quality of information I have found on my last few research trips, I have set my sights pretty low. I have one film, for one estate record, on my list. If I am able to get a good copy of that record, I will consider my trip a success.

Just in case things go really well for me, I have a long list of deed records to look up. Since sorting my family out from among others with the same surname has been a challenge in that county, the land deeds have been a good tool for me.

Friday night and Saturday, I will be at the West Michigan Genealogical Society Seminar, “Got Ancestors?” I am excited about the opportunity to see the great speakers what West Michigan has lined up for the Seminar. I hope I will see some of you there!

    Got Ancestors! What a great name for a lecture. Just keep at it Granny and I’m sure you will find the information you need. Plus road trips are great!


  1. Thanks for the comment, Janice. I won a year’s subscription to Ancestry World at the conference. Talk about good luck!
