Genea-Musings: Saturday Night Genealogy Fun (SNGF) - The Date Your Father Was Born
Genea-musing's Saturday Night Fun. My father was born on Tuesday, October 31, 1905 in Jersey City, NJ. Teddy Roosevelt was president and a 1st class stamp cost 2 cents. On this day in 1846, the Donner Party was trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In 1941, Mount Rushmore was declared completed.
Other people born on Oct. 31: Chaing Kai-sheck, Dan Rather and John Keats. My father seems to be the most important thing that happened on this day in 1905. Halloween seems to be a day when the world doesn't want to irritate the spirits or they are trying to figure out what to wear to the Halloween party.

I am looking forward to some quality Massachusetts time. Since I have been involved helping other people with their research, I haven't had much time for my own. I have so much work that I did in the beginning that needs updating. My husband & I will be attending Judy Russell's visit to Worcester at Holy Cross for the Massachusetts Genealogical Council and we will try to get in 2 days at NEHGS. I will spend most of my time in the manuscript room. The rest of the time will be family time with our 2 beautiful great granddaughters ages 3 and 1.
