The time has finally arrived. Thursday morning I head out from Mason, Ohio, for parts Down East. Yes, I am driving; have done it many, many times. Have my audio books to keep me company, plus I like to be in control of my schedule with my wheels on the ground.
Of course I am looking forward to seeing Mom, who is back in South Portland, at the Betsy Ross House, but I have lots of trips planned with regard to genealogy.
First off, there's the Boston Family History Day on the 16th. I have been looking forward to this since I first heard about it. As it turns out, I have made plans to pick up Christine Morrill on the way, and we are going to meet, and attend the conference together. In my August 22nd post, I published Nettie's story. It is the touching story, written by Christine for Ancestry.com, of my great grandparents Clarence and Nettie Seavey. Christine is a descendent of Joseph Trumbull, who married Nettie after Clarence passed away.
I hope to also drive up to North Conway, to North Conway Cemetery, to take pictures of some headstones, revisit the Sandy Creek Cemetery in Bridgton, Maine, look for some Leighton gravesites in Cumberland, maybe drive down to Rye and Greenland, NH, and take on my first FindaGrave photo requests, as part of my genealogy networking efforts.
I know that Dad would be proud of me, and glad to know I am keeping the record of all those Seaveys that came before us. I miss him so much!
