Genealogy Bucket List . .

Well, it seems like everybody always talks about bucket lists – they either have one, are making one or have done one.

I don’t know if my bucket list is about life, genealogy or research.

    Visit everywhere my family has lived – Sweden, Finland, Ireland, England, Australia, all across Canada and the US
    Find the marriage record for my Grandparents – I am beginning to believe they lived in sin — Oh my!!!
    Find the time to add all the names that I have – about 10,000 into my database
    One day, have pictures of all of my family – including long gone family
    Visit the graveyards where family is buried
    Find someone that I can leave all the information to and they will carry on where I left off
    Visit all my living family – whether they are cousins, distant cousins or very distant cousins

I guess that actually most is a dream that will probably never come true though the new family in Victoria seems to be helping fill in quite a few spaces.

Who knows, maybe some of the bucket list will be filled up one day.

New Family Branch Member Found . . .

So, a few days ago, I got a updated to this memorial — Emma Dicks

It was mentioning a son, that I did not have on the memorial and the person mentioned that he was their Grandfather. Cool.

The person was not a member of findagrave (it happens) so I emailed them and told them who I was and how I was related to their Grandfather (he is my cousin 3 times removed). I figured what the heck, the person might reply == a lot of times they don’t.

But they did!!!!!

She lives on Vancouver Island, is married with 5 daughters and 7 grandchildren. She also has boxes of pictures as she just moved her Mom from the old Family Home (R.E. Dicks) to Winnipeg. She is going to start going through them and then send me copies along with more information on the family.

Yeah!!!! Happy Dance!!!!
