March 15 Update and New Immigration Records
- Hi everyone
Spring is back! We are having beautiful 50' weather, it's
sunny and most of the snow has melted. Our chickens and
guineas are happily pecking around in the fields and yards
looking for bugs. They are inside all winter and getting
out is a treat for them. In the non-snow weather they range
freely and can roam wherever they want.
I hope your weather was as enjoyable today (or better!)
Here are a few genealogy items I talked about on my Olive
Tree Genealogy blog last week.
