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.
