Scott Research Mix Mash Mulligan in Orange Co. VA

As I am watching the early film THE FUGITIVE I spent my time scanning early records that were posted on usgenweb.org. I did not find much but some tidbits that sent me to rootsweb.com to find queries that

people have posted over the last ten years.



It appears an old friend is going to link in again to another line. It also appears I may have found where

Event Researching Calendar for Genealogists

Seems many are commenting on what we are going to do for the New Year. So thought I would post some of my in the past not written agenda for the year. I find this works well and may help others to be more on top of items and topics they want to tackle.
