Thankful Thursday – Going to Missouri Again – Twice!

on November 10, 2011

This has been a great year for me for travel. Have I gone any place exotic? Well we did take the boys on a cruise over spring break. We sailed on the Oasis of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. That was fun. The rest of the year though I have gone to Gary, IN for a client, twice; Springfield, MO to house sit for my parents and hang out with my baby niece; Jefferson City, MO for a client; Rolla, MO to see my best friend; and Springfield, IL – repeatedly for research and the FGS conference. In fact I just came back from a two day research trip in Springfield, IL last night.

I get to go back to Springfield, MO very soon for a short visit for my niece’s 1st birthday. On that trip I hope to meet up with a woman named Sharon who is a cousin of a close friend. We are going to talk about the genealogy research I have done for my friend, specifically about Civil War Pension Files. I am hoping to also meet a friend from Twitter who lives there.

Then in December I get to spend 10 days down there house sitting for my parents and babysitting my niece. If you know I have a house full of boys you understand that spending a week with my 1 year old niece will be heaven, even if I have to change diapers, which I will. LOL!

In December I hope to use the Ozarks Genealogical Society Library to do more research for my friend and visit the main branch of the Springfield library. They have a nice collection too.

It will be great! I am very excited to go. I’ll post about my research while I’m there. Maybe I’ll learn something new or find something great on my visit.

    blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    topic. You understand so muchh its almost touggh to argue with youu (not that I really will

    which has been discussed for a long time. Great
