Can you believe it is already 2009?
I started my New Year's resolution yesterday and began making sure that all the ancestors and kin in my PAF file were sourced and were correct. I even went to FamilySearch.org and matched Texas ancestors with their death certificates. If you haven't used it, there are many digitized and transcribed records at Family Search. Just go to their website and then click on the link to the right for U.S. and U.K. Census. Click on the map where you are researching and you will be shown a list of link for various records. This is all part of the big indexing project that the Mormon church has been working on.
Today we are going to a Cub Scout activity. Was someone in your family a Boy Scout? Some of the earliest Boy Scout troops started in America around 1910. Some clues to having someone in Boy Scouts might be from small badges and medals, old uniforms, and pictures of activities like camping.
