Filled with Turkey and basking in the glow of mailing my Christmas Cards, I eased back into work this morning by organizing the genealogy publications that have been piling up in my magazine basket in the living room. This must be done as some of the "stuff" in my living room needs to move to make room for the Christmas tree.
Next, I posted Hoxie gravestones to my Flickr account as another researcher is going to help me sort them out as they fit into her tree too. Wow, that will make it faster. Still it took two hours to label them correctly and start putting them into my tree at Ancestry.com.
With that started, I went back to work on the Jenckes family of Rhode Island. I already had a Catherine Jenckes married to a William Turpin and the line worked down to Eliza Bicknell who married Jabez Champlin Gardiner. I worked at Find a Grave for a while only to discover that RI Historical Cemetery #9 in Pawtucket RI is lost!
And so, it is back to turkey. I made a casserole out of the leftovers. My local grocery store sells this type of thing year round and they call it "Pilgrim Pie". Appropriate for us Mayflower descendants, huh?
