Saturday Night Genealogical Fun

So I haven't done this in a while, but I really like this idea. Randy Seaver's SNGF post today is a good one:

1) What is on your Genealogy Bucket List?  What research locations do you want to visit?  Are there genea-people that you want to meet and share with?  What do you want to accomplish with your genealogy research?  List a minimum of three items - more if you want!

2) Tell us about it in a blog post of your own (please give me a link in Comments), a comment to this post in Comments, a status line or comment on Facebook., or a Google+ Stream post.

So my big three, in no particular order:

1) For travel, there are two main places I'd like to visit: Denmark (especially Copenhagen) and Wales (particularly Merthyr Tydfil where my great grandfather was born). I'd love to see where my ancestors lived, and get help finding birth and death records for the most immediate generations there, at least. For a more complete (if not perfectly accurate any longer) list of where I'd love to go, see here.

2) I also want to write a book about my great-grandmother Oline. It's in the early writing stages now, but I really want to see it published. I think it will be wonderful, and I think it could help others find their own roots.

3) I would love to make a living as a genealogist. I keep putting it off, though. I need to call the ones currently working in the area, see if I can help them, and try to get into a genealogy class and actually get a certificate.

So those are mine. What are yours?

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
