Where did September go?

It's hard to believe October begins on Tuesday. I'm still catching up from September. The previous week we were in Indiana visiting family, then I flew on Tuesday for a week of meetings in Los Angeles. While I was out, a large package of records arrived from the Warren County Genealogical Society in Ohio, and I received a zip file of articles from the Willard Library in Evansville, Indiana. So I have some catching up to do.

I now have the files to verify the Lambert family was in Indiana before it became a state, as well as Ohio. Descendants of Josiah/Josias Lambert can qualify for both the Territorial Guard Society of Indiana (if you're an Indiana Genealogical Society member) or the First Families of Ohio program. This is on my to-do list in the next couple of months, along with my long delayed documentation for First Families of Tennessee status.

I have a big trip to Bali, Indonesia later in the month and some major projects in my primary field. I'll try to bring some other intriguing stories from my wife's side of the family to the blog too.
