is Condica Sutor - a moth. This little thing really gets around. If you
search the web for information about it you'll discover that Condica Sutor
can be found in such varied places as Jamaica, Belize, Arizona, Florida,
North Carolina, Great Smoky Mountains, Maryland. New York and Canada. Like
many other moths it can be destructive. Normally we think of those wool
eating moths that appear in so many cartoons but this one likes celery.
It lays its eggs in celery plants then the young do quite a bit of damage
to the developing plants.

Spring is coming
... they say
years back Delaware experienced 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 resulting 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
managed to happen. After a few years of mild winters, the snows
are back and so are the freezing temperatures.
old saying notes March comes in like a Lion...and this year
that saying is reather 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 showblower. 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..
is the March edition this seems to be a good time
to mention an important event that happened just
a few days before the new month started. On February 26th
my wife and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary. .My
wife was 20 years old when we married. We noted that with
this anniversary she has now lived with me more than twice
as long as she lived with her parents. And it is true, time
does fly when you're having fun. Yes we've had some tense
moments, mostly due to health issues, but they have been
good years and they gone by so quickly it doesn't seem possible
it was almost a half century ago that we started this adventure.
does, indeed, move quicker than any of us expect it would.This
provides a good segue into talking about genealogy.
any more time moves by, consider 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
on the family tree? Well, these days, weeks as we transition
into warmer weather
are good times to make
the information you've recently found
corrected entered into your genealogy program.
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.
the 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 10th year on line. Over these years
we've had a small but loyal number
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 menu bar.
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
located at the top of the home page just below the banner.
If you move your cursor over the items in the menu bar you
will see each respond by changing color. Each of these menu
bar items are sections of this web site. Each contains
information. We'll explain these sections a bit later in
this article. For now, you need to know two things about
these menu bar items. First, menu button for the section
you are viewing will have orange colored text and it will
click (since you are already on that page). For all the other
menu bar 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 menu bar 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.
this Site This section is an expanded version
of this article. It contains in-depth information about
each section of the Sutor.Org web site as well as background
information about the creation of this web site and a number
of articles to assist those visitors who would like to
write materials for posting on this site
Almanac This section is an expanded version of the date book.
While the current month's notable dates always appear on the home
page, the Almanac section gives you access to the full year. Found here
are year long listings (month by month) of all the birthdays, anniversaries,
and in memoriam notices in the files of Sutor.Org. Like the date book each
listing is a link to a particular persons's profile page where you can
learn additional information about this person.
