Misson Accomplished!

The invitations for the 60th Wedding Anniversary are ready to be mailed!

I created an invitation and a postcard to be returned for the R.S.V.P.. Tomorrow Chuck will go to the post office, buy the stamps for the postcards, insert them in the envelopes and then mail the invitations.

Next I'll buy the name tags!

A Wedding Anniversay -> Another Genealogy Project!

My in-laws, Chuck and Shirley Schultz will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary in August. Such an occasion deserves a celebration and their children decided to have a party. While I had planned to attend, I didn't think it was going to be a 'project'.

I was wrong....

I mentioned to Chuck that it would be nice if we set up an area where people could be 'interviewed' and tell a story, memory, etc about his parents. We could record them (video preferred) and then edit it and make a nice dvd. He mentioned to his brother Billy, who was tasked with sending out the invitations. I told Chuck I could do a short write up that could be included in the invitation so people would have a chance to think of the story.

Today I found out I'm now in charge of the invitations! So, tomorrow it is off to Office Depot to find stationary and envelopes. Then I'll be surfing various sites for an appropriate template for the invitations.

Just another day in the life of a genealogist.... Oh, and while I'm at Office Depot I think I'll pick up name tags, since I can't quite place a few of the people on the guest list.

I'll keep you posted!

The Beginning

This is my first post!

I just finished sending out cd's of my Uncle Kenny's stories. He was quite the storyteller and it was quite a treat to listen to them. I'm just sorry I never experienced them in person.

Look for more posts, especially about my 'top secret' genealogy project.
