I am starting a new process of blogging each Friday or Saturday on my genealogy findings and updates for the previous week. I am going to include my thoughts on what I find and how it helps me to understand or question my previous genealogy research, the current statistics for my website (to allow me to look back at the end of the year and see how my website information has progressed throughout the year), and one or two of the new items I added to the website during the previous week.
I have been busy for the past week or so. I am getting all my data converted to Legacy Family Tree and cleaned up. I have several things on the website now but the amount of data on my website is only a small fraction of the information that I have. The website only includes the cleaned-up data on my ancestors with all living people excluded.

One of the more interesting items that I have recently added to the genealogy website is an article on Mr. and Mrs. Euel F Thompson and Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Thompson families. One couple was celebrating their 50th Anniversary and his parents their 78th Anniversary!
Thompson Anniversary Celebrations
Mr. and Mrs. Euel F. Thompson of the Alabam Community celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary July 10 with a reception hosted by their children. The couple were married July 1, 1933 at Qualls, Okla. They have seven children. Honored guests at the event were their parents, Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Thompson who recently celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary.
Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Thompson celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary on July 9. The couple, married in 1905 at Whorton Creek, have children: Leon Thompson, deceased; D.L. Euel, Milt and Alford, all of Huntsville; Jewell Thompson of Fort Gibson, Okla.; Olen Thompson of Kamas, Utah; Ireva Winner of Downey, Calif.; Lillian Cookson of Long Beach, Calif., and Vivian Ballew of Tahlequah, Okla. They have 33 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.
