Ah, Michael… Seriously what music video can you say, 25 some odd years later still entertains you? Is there any wonder I like to muck about in graveyards?! Hehehe…

Well it’s about 10:15 and I’m in dire need for coffee, but almost all my baking is done and we’re geared up for a great day tomorrow.
We were hoping to borrow a slide scanner this weekend but it’s going to have to wait until next weekend. I can’t wait to see what’s on some of those old negatives from the Keffer – Diceman side. All in all, there should be some big developments on the Keffer side in the next few weeks. We’re going to follow up a few leads, get some permissions and what not… Good times!

We got in touch with Patrick Boylan this week, we’re going to give him a call and see what we can scare up on the McKenna side next week. The Lequyer tree has grown in leaps and bounds for days now but I really need to cut back on my research time and focus on costumes or everyone’s going to be going naked for Halloween this year 🙂
Once the weather hits it’ll be time to sit with my tea and sort through the ton of information and general ‘stuff’ we’ve been given this year. I left off this morning trying to hunt up some more information on some of the earlier Lecuyer generations. Lots of documents poorly written in old french. I’ll post when I come up with something solid.

Of course there is work going on elsewhere… Off the top of my head… Jake’s headed to Edmonton to do a few cemeteries in mid October. I know they’d talked about archives and whatnot, but there will be developments on the Baker and MacDairmaid trees soon. Maybe the mystery of who Minnie is on the 1901 – I think it’s the 1901 – Census will be solved. Jake’s writing a personal history page for Thomas Davidson Baker. Oh and we have the Cox family joining us on Sunday night, that’s going to be a great time, always is… We’ll see if there isn’t anything we can get from them as far as new leads too. We were waiting on an Aunt to get a few hints from down south… We’ll have to tap her in a bit and see what’s come up.

So that’s all I can think of for now. There’s always more to come 🙂
