101 Tillery’s on the Wall!

Topic: 101 Tillerys! Take one down and pass it around… Oh, but we should be putting them up, not taking them down… Maybe this song doesn’t work for that. Progress report, general babble and a bit of a rant.
Family Name Associations: Tillery, Durnell, Miller and Brown
Location: Barrie, Ontario, on my bed πŸ™‚
Mood: Tired, but productive in a good way.
Music: Stevie Nicks – Landslide

So I spent today going through the Durnell Chaple Cemetery in Missouri on with Jules, Mark and the tree… There have to be 200 people in their that are ours.
Its all just a matter of making the connections and sorting them all out.
Gotta love the knotted dead people!

It was a super productive day. At this point, we have Babcocks to add, and then all the document linking to do… And we’re semi-done.
It’s all just details!

Jim’s putting text on crests right now, we have tomorrow together to get into all sorts of nonsense… so we’ll see what we can come up with. May 1? Sure, no problem… LOL
We’ll see. I mean, it’s not set in stone, it’s just my fondest wish… Or one of them at this point.
Right up there with lotteries, goverment grants, mac book pros and a live in maid πŸ˜‰

Still no luck with getting more family information on the Millers. That makes me sad. I was really hoping some family could pass on some good information verses me going digging, but it looks like digging is going to be it.

It’s the same with some of the other stuff too… Really, if people were smart, they’d be helpful, and not just saying this as a genealogist… But if you’re scared of what I’ll find out (Which I think is silly because who doesn’t have a million crazy relatives? There’s a reason we’re Closet Skeleton Genealogical baby!) then the best way to make us aware of a sensitive situation is telling us about it verses letting us dig it up on our own…
And if it’s about people just being cranky, well, guess what??? This record is going to be around a hell of a lot longer than us… LOL New genealogy blackmail… Be nice or we’ll write you in as an ogre!
Really, I just think the more we work together, the more will be left for our children. We all know I’m in it for the future generations though πŸ˜‰ It’s my standard rant.

Okay… Bed now, work tomorrow. Night everyone!
