52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 9

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 9

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy 2012 prompts suggested by Amy Coffin; thanks, Amy!

Week 10 – Genealogy Road Trips: No two genealogy road trips are the same but they’re always fun and meaningful. Describe a memorable trip in your past. Where did you go? What did you find (or not find)? Did you meet any new cousins? What did the trip mean to you and your family?

This challenge runs from Sunday, March 4, 2012 through Saturday, March 10, 2012.

This was our trip to Maryland, where my KINNICK ancestors first appear in the USA. Based on this first visit and the research that went before and since, I am still preparing to write a family history book about 5 times Great-Grandfather Serg Major William Kinnick, my 'primary' Revolutionary War ancestor. This set of four web pages was created in Aug 2001, shortly after the visit.

This trip was completed just two years before I completed the (multi-year) work (900+ webpages - including contact with nearly 100 'cousins') on the update of the 1953 KINNICK Family Genealogy Book as an online interactive book:

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. My genealogy field trips tend to coincide with trips "home". I enjoy combining visits with family with a little research.

  2. Thanks, Sheryl. Sounds like a good reminder! ;-)
