Genea-Journal - Tuesday, 15 October 2019

This was my father's 108th birthday.  He's been gone 36 years now.  He would have loved my genealogy research!  And told me stories about his childhood and youthhood, and his siblings.  

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1800 U.S. Census Record for Joseph Oatly Household in South Kingstown, R.I. posted.
