I ran away from home last Monday. Day 1 I drove from Tucson to Guyman, OK. I stayed at a Holiday Inn with great beds. After a good night’s sleep, I began day 2. I drove from OK to Madison,WI. It was a long drive but I made it! Day three started with some scrambled eggs before hitting the Wisconsin Historical Society in downtown Madison.

|Such a pretty place to be!|
I searched microfilms and pulled a bunch check of books. I left at 6 pm. I didn’t even stop for lunch! I located marriage, birth and death records. I also found quite a few obituaries in Milwaukee’s Polish newspaper.

Now I just need to translate them. I met some great genealogists in the library and really enjoyed walking around downtown and on the University campus. Good news, I got my 10,000 steps in and I enjoyed every step of it.
Tomorrow I head to Concordia Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois. I plan to tramp among my relatives and view a wonderful old German Cemetery. I’ll check in soon…
