Root Digger Daily Journal: Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Today, I had a slow start.  My phone had died, and I had to buy a new one.  I turned in my Blackberry for an I-phone.  I should receive it via UPS soon.

After spending two to three hours on the phone this morning, I went straight to the computer to do some blogging. I posted a blog on Thomas B. Reid, an individual whose photo collection is in my possession.  I am really enjoying looking through his photos and investigating more about the background of them and his family.

I posted on the Hairston Blog about Shober Hairston: Part #2.  I am so pleased that Pat likes the way I am presenting the documents for her.  It is great practice for me and it is very helpful for her.

I also posted the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery pictures I took when I went to Lake Village  Chicot County, Arkansas in April 2012.  Can’t believe it took me so long to post.  I need to post the other photos I took on my visit.

I received my DNA results back from Ancestry. I was somewhat surprised by some of the results and pleased by some of my ancestry.  I have hopes that I will fully understand the results.  There will be an upcoming post regarding my DNA.

I have been thinking about my Birth Mother lately.  I have no online communication with her right now,and I am hoping that we will talk soon.

I did not write today as I had planned.  When I say that, I mean that I needed to write at least an hour on one of the books that needs to be published in the New Year of 2013.  I hope that I will get to that tomorrow.

I almost forgot..I wrote and posted a photo of my Cousin Richard C. Cully, who was the first African American Deputy Fire Chief in New England for Wordless Wednesday. I am amazed that he was an African American First, and then I am also amazed that he also is a product of his ancestry.  I am not sure that he knew but a generation or two before him, his Uncle’s had been dedicated to the Service occupations.

Well this is all for now…See ya all tomorrow.
