    1. Gene Pool........time for a summer dip
    2. Shirley Fergus
    3. Hello Everyone I would like to thank Kathie Harrison of the Lancaster Co., NE GenWeb Project for the following. I hope everyone will take time to read it and remember it. Shirley List Mom Since we are fast approaching summer and many of you are out there enjoying vacations or trips of a genealogical nature, please be sure to share with us, your new found cousins, family history and research tips or plans. The lists tend to get a bit quiet this time of year and there are also many who can't travel or otherwise research outside the home. We are more tied to our computers for that research and friendship in our family history quest. So...........I think it would be great to take this opportunity to post something. Who is your most elusive ancestor as in connection to this specific list? What are your goals? Do you have tips to share? A genealogy web site, perhaps? A flair for writing and sharing a family story or tradition with us? I will try to prod the list from time to time for some good posts to keep our list alive and kicking. Please jump in when ready, just as if you were jumping into the pool....the Gene Pool. ;-)

    1. [ADMIN] Caretaker - possibly List Owner - needed for this List.
    2. Vic Brocklehurst
    3. Hi Listers: Several months ago List Owner Diane asked that I caretake this List for her for a short period. This is the normal procedure when a List Owner (or Administrator if you prefer) is going to be off-line for more than a few days. Usually everything runs smoothly, and the List Owner returns as planned. In the meantime the Caretaker, having the List password, attends to any subscription or other problems on the List. Unfortunately Diana hasn't returned and attempts to contact her at her last known address have been unsuccessful. The time has now come to make fresh arrangements for administration of this List:. As a "stranger" I'm unable anything to the List beyond "mechanics". I can't promote the List topic, or answer any queries! Is there anyone on the List who would be willing to Caretake on the understanding that if Diane does return she has prior claim to the List? If Diane does not return then you will probably inherit the List by default. No pay of course - it's all voluntary "work" done out of love for the hobby! If someone volunteers who hadn't managed a List before there's plenty of help available from Rootsweb, or I'll help if need be. Interested? Contact me at vb@kuchena.co.uk and be sure to put the name of the List in the subject. Diane had a lot of List's that I'm still caretaking and now seeking to hand over! Vic List Caretaker.

    1. Halloween
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. In the spirit of Halloween, from now through Oct. 31 please feel free to post any spooky tales related to your family research. Found a grave with the help of that ancestor? Tell us about it. Share a family tradition with us. What did your ancestor's do for a holiday? A special family recipe? Get your creative juices flowing and share with us today! It works every October and is fun for many list members who may have been afraid to post before. It tends to get them talking anyway! I set the time limit for this topic so that after Oct.31 we can get down to some really good researching... Diane (List mum)

    1. A website that you might be interested in
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. This is from your list mum, Diane FYI -- To those of you with England-based lists, I just ran across a resource which your lists might like to know about if they don't already. Harvard Law School has a collection of English deeds in their library, and these deeds are described on their website, including all names and locations contained therein: <http://www.law.harvard.edu/library/collections/special/collections/manuscri pts/deeds/> There is a small search box on the left-hand side at the bottom. If "HLS website" is clicked, then entering a search term in that box and clicking on "Go" will search those deeds for you (and probably any other pages on their site as well). Some of these deeds mention land in America, but most of them are for land in England. They go back as early as the 1300's and go through at least the latter 1700's. It doesn't appear to be possible to search on just the deeds, so a search on a common name like Lewis will get way too many hits. Adding the term "deed" to your search will help, but there may still be irrelevant results. The deed descriptions are also browseable in the event that the name search isn't fruitful. Please feel free to forward this message in whole or in part to your list(s) if desired. Diane
