is Rumored to be Here ...
to the calendar Spring began abut mid-day here in Delaware. If you live here,
however, you could be excused for doubting it.
few years back Delaware's winter weather has tended to hang on for longer
than usual. This year, as this is being written we are experiencing our 4th
Nor'Easter in a row. For those not familiar with this term, a Nor'Easter
Google describes it as a storm that moves along the East Coast of North
America . It gets is name from the Northeast movement of it winds that
are usually from the Northeast. Left untold by Google is the fact these winds
are a kind of one-two punch. Very cold air moves down from the far north
and encounters warm and very moist are coming up from the South. The result
is a kind of cyclone effect where all this wetness gets quick-chilled, turns
into snow, sleet and ice and blasts a wide geographic area. Our local weather
people are expecting up to 10 inches of snow from our current storm and suggest
this may not be the final storm for this season.
or three weeks ago the crocus plants in our front yard made their appeance.just
in time to be coved by a Nor' easter. They all survived and I was planning
on updating the picture above for this years page but right now the weather
is far from ideal picture taking conditions.
There's one more oddity headed our way which we can share with
everyone in the nation. For the first time in my memory Easter will fall on
April 1st the day traditionally reserved for April Fool's Day. I've still got
a week or two to figure out how to handled that one.
one of its snowiest winters in a long time. In
just two major storms, hitting just before Christmas and then again in
January, we had over 6 feet of snowfall. Temperatures stayed below average
in those snows remaining in place fro months. And just to keep things
interesting we had a few lesser storms filling in the gaps when some melting
to happen. After a few years of mild winters, the snows are back and
so are the freezing temperatures.
An old saying
notes March comes in like a Lion...and this year that saying is rather accurate.
As this is being written we are expecting a storm which will yield six to
twelve inches of snow in less than 24 hours. Good thing I have extra gas
for my snow blower. Just yesterday, though, with the last snows finally melted
away I noticed out on our front lawn the crocuses are popping up along the
sidewalks and in our lower land. Here's hoping they don't get discouraged
by being covered up once more.
If the weather
where you are is anything like the weather where I am this would be a good
reviewing any genealogical programs you may have holding your family data.
Have you made any new discoveries over the past
few months that may have changed any basic data for one or more individuals?
Have you discovered some formerly unknown family members or possibly even
a new branch on the family tree? Well, these days, weeks as we transition
into warmer weather are good times to make sure all the information you've
recently found is corrected entered into your genealogy program.
As those of
you who have visited this site over the years known the genealogy work appearing
here is a joint effort. My cousin Robert Stockman helped tremendously with
the large amount of family data he had collected, then - through this site-
we both met a relative we didn't know we had - Diana Sutor who has been a
powerhouse of a researcher. She has located some information about my great
grandparents that clears up some unknowns and an uncertainty. Diana located
death certificates for George and Katherine Sutor. These provide dates of
death for both of them. They also show that while Katherine knew information
about her parents and passed it on, George did not know or choose not to
share such information. In Katherine's case the uncertainty over the first
name of her father is now clarified. I have a photo of her father that has
been passed down through several generations. My father had printed the man's
name on the back noting it was Alonzo. Research done by Bob and Diana refuted
this finding no Alonzo but instead finding Lorenzo. And there on the death
certificate is the confirmation. His name was Lorenzo.
promise of spring is in the air here in Delaware, if you are in a part of
the country were it looks like spring is still 6 months away consider curling
up to a nice warm computer and wading into making all the adjustments to
your genealogical program you've postponed.

Diana Sutor runs a great web site loaded with information.
Here's a link to it:
web site is now in its 14
year on line. Over these years we've had a small but loyal
of regular visitors and a number of visitors who have stopped
by occasionally. We'd like to be attracting a much large
of regular visitors.
been wondering if
some of our occasional visitors
may not be aware of everything that is available on this
site. So we created this article as a brief overview
of what's here and
it can be found.
PAGE The items on the home page mostly speak for
themselves. There are two items, however, that could use
a little explanation. The links and the menubar.
throughout the home page are links that will take you from
the home page and onto other pages in this web site. These
links are printed in blue and
are underlined. Sometimes the link
will be the continuation of a home page article or, in
the case of the date book,
the link will take you to a profile page that lists a bit
more information about an individual - sometimes even including
their picture. All of these links appear in a window that "floats" above
the home page. The window has a close box allowing you
to close it and return to a full
view of the home page.
The menubar is
located at the top of the home page just below the banner.
If you move your cursor over the items in the menubar
you will see each respond by changing color. Each of
these menubar items are sections of this web site. Each
contains specialized information. We'll explain these
sections a bit later in this article. For now, you need
to know two things about these menubar items. First,
menu button for the section you are viewing will have
orange colored text and it will not click (since you
are already on that page). For all the other menubar
buttons, when the button changes color, you can click
it to be taken to that section of the web site.
of the main pages of the various sections display that
same banner as the home page and the menubar so you can
freely move about the web site. The first page of a section
is a kind of home page for that section telling you the
kind of information found there and providing links to
allow you to access whatever you wish.
