Wordless Wednesday

This is a 4-Generation picture of the Bionaz/Boche side of my family. My 2great-grandparents Peter and Charlotte Boche, their daughter my great grandmother Orpheline Boche Bionaz, my grandparents John and Elizabeth Hawke Bionaz aand the little girl is my mother Elizabeth Joan Bionaz Baker.

This picture was taken about 1934. How I dated it was the little girl in the picture is my mother and she was born 4 Aug 1931 and her sister was born in 1936 and their mother, Elizabeth Hawke Bionaz does not look like she is pregnant.

The drawing was sent to me by my Sister-In-Law Lisa. I do not know who drew it, but it is a lot easier to tell who is who. Especially when the picture is of a large crowd.

Well it has been about 2 weeks since I posted a list of goals for the week. I post from Wilson L Starkey's mother's pension record, I have been indexing at least 700 names each week, this past week I finally started updating the citations for the information I received from my cousin (I even did several short FGS), but I still have not got back to Second Life. I worked a little on the research plan for Delaplaine Ridgway and I did some research using and entered the information with citations into RootsMagic (the genealogy program I am using)
I really do need to get organized and busy.
This week I am going to try and
1) Continue indexing at least 700 names during the week
2) Post at least one other blog
3) Type up what I have so far for Delaplain Ridgway's research plan
4) Re-evaluate at least 1 land deed and try to finish the transcription of it. (I have 1 very long land deed, it has to do with the partition of an estate, and 1 or 2 others, that I think are almost done. Possibly needing just a final proof read)

I think I will go with that and if I get into second life it will be a plus.
