What are you searching for??

It’s always interesting to me to see what people are searching for when they find my blog.  Sometimes I think that what I have on my site is probably helpful to them – especially if we have a common ancestor or area of interest.  There are other times though that I can’t help but think that these people must have been disappointed to find me….

I got this idea from Amy over at the wonderful We Tree blog:)  Head over there to read her interesting searches.

War of 1812  
This is probably one of the most popular search terms that brings people to my site – and that scares me.  I have no expertise and little advice on War of 1812 research.  I do have an ancestor who I think served, but I have yet to prove that.  Sorry.  I guess maybe I should do some more research and study so that I can write a proper post about this war since everyone seems so interested!!

Where Hungarians lived when they immigrated to America
I am so sorry if you came to my site looking for information on Hungarian research. I’m not sure why you were directed here, but I have NO Hungarian ancestors and no knowledge of Hungarian research.

Drank himself to death
I do have an ancestor that appears to have died of drink.

Book-a-holic website
I am a book-a-holic for sure.

I am sorry you have lost a branch off your family tree.
How sad. How on earth did you lose a branch off your tree??  I’m sorry too.

Setting of Don Quixote.
I do have an ancestor who lived in the region of Spain where Don Quixote was based.

Where is Niagara Falls located on a map.
You are much better off using Google Maps for this question.

Vapor Bath 19th Century
I did in fact mention vapor baths in one of my Shopping Through the Ages posts.

The building where cookie monster lives
I’m not kidding. I don’t ever recall talking about cookie monster. Or where he lives. And he’s definitely not in my family tree – although I do really like cookies.

Old West Mini Roulette
Sounds like fun!

Greek Family Tree including Atalanta
I don’t have any Greek roots (that I know of) and I definitely am not related to the Greek Gods.:)

Hmmm. Is this an 11 yr old diaper or an 11 yr old in a diaper? Either way, I’m not sure why google sent you here.:)

    I was trying to research a lizard I’d seen this summer, and I googled, “Franklin Mountains lizards” and I found the photograph of myself on this post: http://1000milesonmyowntwofeet.blogspot.com/2011/05/high-on-mountain.html Ya, that was a good self-esteem boost :/ReplyCancel

    I love it when I google one of my ancestors and my blog shows up. A little disappointing, though, when I figure out there’s nothing new :-(ReplyCancel
