@Pip, "... tarter this and tartan that ..." ... okay
CALIFORNIA -- SoCal fires a cause of concern ref relatives I cannot get a response from but I figure with 1000's and 1000's evacuated and all things considered with flames springing up and devouring the environment, it will be another few weeks before they can respond ...
GENEALOGICALLY I have been testing the entry of explanatory commentary (The Box on a Profile) that will show up in Family Feeds ... timed out a few times so I suspect that "frequent saving" anxiety is NOT going to be allowed to rule me.
I discover anew that while it's easy enough to profile one or two children when I'm looking at and processing more than five of them, transcripts in the biog, and sourcing .... even the mouse begins to sag in fatigue ... it's certainly challenging ... so I do one complete (I hope, barring any Category stuff) and roll over for food, rest, renewal and then tackle the next one ...
Currently updating the Pemberton files I'm related to. MIND YOU, it's JUST the kids for this couple and NOT (yet) the spouses and grandchildren.
If I've discovered any new cousins, it's lost in a blur of fatigue.
INVITATIONAL - "BE MY GUEST" -- DID get a query about the Longley ranch, Campbell Longley and 1st spouse Sarah. Sarah is the only one buried in one cemetery (of the Longley) but the cemetery was removed to Caddo, TX, when Authority decided to construct Stillhouse Hollow resevoir etc c1955/62. Campbell married second but I don't recall issue at this moment. QUERY was about the LOCATION of the ranch. Well, Bell County, TX of course, with a prior land purchase in Washington County (later some part of another county), etc ... I think they want the GPS of it, barring the fact it's under water. The man making the query is a writer, a historian, traveling, gathering materials, etc. (Must be a lot younger than I am). Profiles in question are Campbell Longley-1009 and his 1st Sarah Ann (Henry-9077) Longley AND if ANYONE wants to contribute to Bob Boys (the Querent) information contact me and I'll send you his email
I went ahead and adopted Campbell & Sarah, and added some URL stuff in the biog box on Campbell's profile. On Sarah's profile I entered some materials from her FAG about some of the children. I may go ahead and profile the kids, but anyone who has an Idle Moment (LOL) is free to do so, both files are OPEN
Campbell's horrid son William P. Longley, was notorious and totally bad -- of course if YOU want to do a Black Sheep on him, fine by me. I won't. You'll be overwhelmed by Legend and Rumor and have to be careful in construction -- William IS in Wikipedia I think so you've got a double whammy going as a Notable and a Black Sheep ...
I see that ONE child is profiled by someone, Elizabeth (Longley) Walton, that needs SOURCES by crackey that whole line of descent is "Ancestry.com" which is not acceptable.
avoir, mes amis
I THINK we can say with confidence that Pip and Spouse have worked wonders, or at least I have spent a lot of time WONDERING ... I have to give them major kudos for Herculean Labors on the renovation and repairs they have made
PS / I contacted someone who contacted someone who contacted one of the unresponsive family members who said they are "fine". I'd love to know if fine means sitting in a refugee camp or at home ... but I'm lucky to find out that much. LOL (well, he was an Eagle Scout, so a refugee camp wouldn't present too much difficulty for him)
