Update… Well, since going live we have corrected a few hundred small errors. I’m right about to go in and fix some pdfs the Captain loaded by mistake… We’re aiming to not use adobe at all, it’s a big pain and one of my personal pet peeves.
After that I have some Keffer work to do, we’ll see how far I get.
I still have to make a midnight run to Walmart for supplies for tomorrow. It should be a good day! Grave hunting, grilling meat… Good friends, a couple of good dogs… Playing happy kids, that hint of summer in the air. I love group meetings up north πŸ™‚

We loaded the storm pics – Jules finally found them in her 8000 photos on her hard drive. They’re in the Odd Gallery. We have other images, LOL Somewhere. We’re getting there. Really, we’re doing pretty well with getting everything together. Considering how easy it is to be unorganized.
Mark’s talking GPS today… We got a new card for my camera that throws us up to a 2 Gig ability. I can’t wait to fill that puppy up. Anyways, it’s a possibility our American parents might bring us some new toys to make our hunting all that more entertaining. I mean, who doesn’t need GPS? LOL

So we’re hoping to hit Saint Joseph’s Black River Cemetery on the way through Washago in the morning and check in on our Lequyers there. I have some cute little things I wanted to put up there and some fake flowers. I hate the fake flowers usually, but this time of year everything looks so dead, a little colour won’t hurt. And I always think poppies are good fake or real πŸ™‚
We might hit the Saint Joseph’s in Bracebridge too. We found one Lequyer in there before, and I’m really thinking a walk though wouldn’t hurt anyone… It’s a pretty big place, oh… And I could use a shot of the gate. I hate loosing the gate shots.

Mark had a great time last night linking up that St. Vrain family in New Jersey… All of that and the records are getting posted up. That family is honestly huge. Just when we think we have them all! LOL They’re like the Keffers. Speaking of which, Mark’s talking about doing a little leg work in Maple within the next few weeks so I’m hoping for some grave updates there. We’re still missing Michael. We know he’s there somewhere! I’m so there on the GPS… See, so much of my issue is that I can find these places once! And then I loose them again πŸ™

McDairmaids… Oh, the Captain has huge leaps and bounds on them. Really, they’re almost up to par. Anyone who hasn’t seen the picture Joan scanned and sent over has to go see it. It rocks.

Eng… LOL Oh dear. Seriously who gets into trouble like we do??? No one, let me tell you.
Okay, so one of our trees is a little… Complicated. Okay, so they’re all complicated. But this one really is. We have a Chinese man who married a French woman, they lived in Canada… And he has a Chinese marker on his grave. So we call in a favour and ask a contact to translate the stone… Yeah, that didn’t go so smooth.
Apparently his whole family freaked out over the bad omen and now we’re out of luck completely. We’re going to call in a few other markers. LOL Geez Louise who has issues like we do???
We’ll see what goes on when we get stuff in from Edmonton and Taiwan… Someone somewhere will do it for us. The more information we get, the more likely a trace is possible. I’m still betting he was a political problem in the revolution. It’ll be interesting to see.

Ooohhh… Jules is super cute on Everyone should check her out.

Alright… Midnight at Walmart shopping trip for supplies!!! Can’t wait to leave in the morning πŸ™‚
