Ah well so much for our big winter storm. It started out looking like we were going to get hit bad. The winds were strong all day Tuesday and by late evening we were getting a lot of freezing rain. It kept up all night and changed to snow early this morning. But since it was above 0C it was melting just about as fast as it was coming down! lol That’s fine with me.
Still being quite icy out it was a good day to say inside and get caught up on things. This afternoon I watched a live webinar by Legacy Family Tree. I just love their webinars and watch most of them live or in the recording. The one today was about Annie Moore, the first immigrant to come off the ship at Ellis Island. It was an excellent overview of this history surrounding this event, and showed how an error in research or the lack there of lead to the wrong Annie Moore being credited with being the same person. The webinar is up on their website free for the next few days if anyone would like to watch it. I’ll be re watching it again with the kids this week, as I think it’s a great history lesson. It is also a great lesson in doing proper research!
