Do not "toss the baby out with the bathwater."

Everybody seems quick to disregard the posted online trees as undocumented rubbish. And maybe too many are. But hold your horses. I'm working on a tree for a friend in Florida who knew nothing about his surname line. Imagine his delight when I found that somebody had posted a picture of his great-grandmother to accompany their online tree matching into his line! 
Is sorting through all the might-be-trues to find a gem like this worth the time and trouble? You decide.

Something New for YOU Has Begun

Filling the capable blogging shoes of Kris Krell will be a challenge but this post is to announce that I shall try. Try to share with you timely tidbits, historical trivia and just plain "can you believe this?" items. Serendipity, if you will. If you like what you see, please click to subscribe and future posts will come right in to your email box.

Let's start off today with a bit in The Spokesman back on 10 April, "Alternatives to Burial and Cremation Approved by House." Apparently, Gov. Inslee is studying a bill that, if approved, would bring Washington a big step closer to human composting.

Human composting is also known as natural organic reduction or alkaline hydrolysis, both approved options for the final disposition of human remains.

With a bipartisan vote of 80-16, the House sent the bill to Gov. Inslee. What are YOUR thoughts on this idea??
