I leave for my research trip on Friday so this week I am making final preparations! So far I have researched Find A Grave for Wabash county and made spreadsheets for each of the cemeteries I hope to visit. I’ve looked up the hours for the Wabash Public Library so that I can squeeze in some research time on Saturday. I’ve pulled maps with GPS coordinates for all the cemeteries I want to get to and also for the library. (I love my GPS!) I pulled all the research notebooks for the families in Wabash County to take with me and I’ve located all the camera cords I will need to upload my photos to my laptop.
Tonight I want to put together my “cemetery bucket”. I plan on including gardening gloves, knee pad, pruners, a small hand shovel, a whisk broom, Off, sunscreen, and a spray bottle with water. I’m open to anymore suggestions of items I should include.
I still have many misc. items on my “to do” list including getting the oil changed in the car, which is way past due, and deciding what clothes to pack.
My major concern right now is the weather. The extended forecast is calling for rain on Saturday.
Maybe I should add umbrella to that list……..
