On the Road Again

By the time you read these words, I should be in en route to Anchorage, Alaska, to be a tourist for a few days and then to make presentations at the Anchorage Genealogical Society meeting on Saturday, April 30.

As usual, I will be traveling with an iPad and a laptop computer along with other gadgets that should keep me in touch with the newsletter. Connectivity should not be a problem but available time is usually the biggest impediment. I suspect I will be busy from before daybreak until well into each evening so you probably will see fewer articles posted here than normal in the next few days. However, I do hope to post a few new articles in the midst of the travels.

If you are in or near Anchorage next Saturday, April 30, come join us at the Anchorage Genealogical Society meeting. See http://www.anchoragegenealogy.org/eventListings.php?nm=120 for details.


I do HOPE you are/were caught of guard by the HUGE SURPRISE waiting for passengers as they walk along the one hallway in the Anchorage Airport
.. It truly has a lasting impact !!
My 1st visit to Anchorage was in 1972, on my way to a year’s isolated duty on a US Coast Guard LORAN Navigation station on Unimak Island, out the Aleutian Island chain .. that sudden surprise set the tone for the rest of that year!
(If you are not sure what I mean by HUGE SURPRISE, you may have missed it or it is no longer in the airport !! .. I’ll give it away if I say too much this soon)


Dick, don’t miss the beer-batter fried halibut at F Street Station (local’s pub within walking distance) – enjoy!


The seminar is Saturday the 30th not the 20th – typo lol
