Follow Friday - 6 May 2011

I am drafting this (for you to read a week from today) on an interesting day... Royal Wedding, Space Shuttle didn't go up, aftermath of tornados in SE and flooding here, NFL draft and lockout foolishness, NBA playoffs, Trump F-bombs, etc.

Two highlights, for me, however, were, first, via our early involvement in WikiTree, finding I am a 5th cousin, twice removed from one of my favorite GeneaBloggers, Randy Seaver of Genea-Musing in San Diego. My 4th great-grandmother, Hannah Healy (married William Preston) had a sister Joanna who married John Underhill in 1741, Randy's sixth great-grandparents. Small world! [Common ancestors: William and Mary S. Healey] Don't we actually look just a little bit alike?!?!  ;-)

Second, and most important here, Randy has a great post, today:
"Hank Jones - 'When the Sources Are Wrong'" Few of us get to attend society meetings such as the one Randy reports, especially not with this kind of outstanding speaker. Randy give a great, brief review, and includes eight quotes from Hank that are worthy of book, on their own. Enjoy, and learn.  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
