Hello again

I realize I haven't been posting much, but I've been a bit distracted. The last month has suddenly made me itch to play with my genealogy again, so I'm back. I think I have finished my Matrilinial Monday posts, but I do have a couple of the Brick Wall People posts left to put up. I also have a little something I found that I need to write up, so hopefully I'll get those all queued this weekend for you all to read.

If you're still out there reading, and you have anything to add to anything I've posted, please feel free to drop a note. Comments on posts old or new are welcome.

I hope you will enjoy what I have coming up, too. I've been inspired by my friend Foodie's cooking blog, Persnickity Cookery. She's been doing posts about her Saturday meals; doing one meal for each state in the US, and she posts stats and mini-histories for each of the cities she chooses for her meals. I'm going to do an offshoot of the idea, doing a series of posts about the places my ancestors were born, starting with my grandfather, Sam Hillinger. I'm calling them Hometown Histories. Some of my ancestors I won't be able to do, because I don't have locations for, but I have enough that this should be very interesting. And nearly all of the cities are outside the US, so that will be that much more interesting.

So I hope you all stick around to see what I have to post!

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.
