I’ve been able to get my blog pointing back to http://blog.spence-lowry.com. I don’t know what I did to my DNS…but I jacked it up. Now it’s back working..WOOHOO.
So, new developments. I’ve been asked to be editor of the Family Research Society’s quarterly newsletter. I’m currently the webmaster for their site. But, being editor..WHOA. I know I won’t have the time. So, the president, Sharon Gable, suggested being co-editor with the current editor. Hmmm..that could work.
Family research has been slow lately. Kind of hit roadblocks with every turn. I hadn’t blogged about them because I keep hoping for the ‘AH HA’ finding to write about…so sad.
Planning the family reunion is TIME CONSUMING to say the least! I’m doing it alone and there is alot to do!
I know I’ve missed several of the Carnival of African American Genealogy!!! Ugh!! I hate that! I swear I can’t find time in my day *cries*.
About Mount Carmel Baptist Church. My first thought for the church was how upsetting!! That has been the church that many of my ancestors and current family members were raised. I have uncles and cousins who are deacons at that church.
Then on the flip side, the family researcher in me just kept thinking..WHAT ABOUT THE RECORDS????? *sigh*. Unfortunately, when I spoke with the secretary last year, she said that she didn’t know about any records. I was hoping to find information about Great Great Grandfathers sister, Cora Alphenia Howell. She got married in that church in 1955 and hoping to find more information about her. I know she had children and one daughter was named Inez. *sigh*
Who’s ready for the 2012?? I’m ready to see the 1940 census!!!
