01 JUN 2006 WARNING - Don't use regular gas in your 2 cycle engine lawn - garden equipment
My Mantis tiller was destroyed at only two years old because the news media has not covered the fact that the Methanol they started using in regular gas last year cannot be used in 2 cycle engines. Seems to me the companines that produce these instruments should have been sending out warning notices to registered buyers - they send enough marketing flyers. It cost almost as much for a new engine as for a new tiller so I bought a new tiller - $300 and the paint barely scratched on the old one. I am really annoyed that this has not been better publicized. So far I have only run across two people who knew this. Pass the word. Use gas one grade higher.

Image from an 1875 diary. The lion symbol for Leo overlaps July and August. We usually associate it with August since most of that sign in in August. This diary links the sign to the first day of the zodiacal period rather than the larger part of it. That's a mighty bewildered looking lion.

Now, I ask you, why didn't we know about this before??? 
Many people have a problem reading small text, so this is very useful when trying to read small e-mail or web page print. 

If you hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and turn the small wheel in the middle of your mouse, the print size will change - it will either get larger or smaller - depending on which way you turn the wheel. Try it - you'll be amazed at the difference!

Please pass this on to others who may find it useful. I'm sure glad somebody told ME!!!

Note from Joyce, I am corrected to 20/12 vision and like a smaller, neater type. So for those of you who have trouble with the size 12 font I normally use, this may be a good tip for you. Actually I tried it and did not get the result that is described.

Happy 4th Joyce,
It just dawned on me that no one notified you that the Erin Historical Society's Museum in Erin opened for the season on June 4, 2006. We will be open every Sunday from 2-4 PM until September 24th. We are located on the village of Erin, on NY RT 223 and corner of
Rodbourn Place.
Researchers are invited to call Pat Wainwright at 607-739-1642 to set up
an appointment for research.  They can come on Sundays but I might not have the time to work
with them and it  can get a bit confusing.
The exhibit featured this year is RELIGION IN ERIN, featuring church and family Bibles.
Two of our most popular exhibits and favorite questions are the railroads and schools. 
If there are an questions feel free to contact Pat Wainwright, Curator & Librarian at
rodopat@juno.com

1870 Canton Township & Alba Borough Census
All of you who use my site know I do not often link to other sites. BUT this one is so good and the person who has done it so very charming that I am adding it. Charles Page , now in his mid eighties, has written of his early years in Oneida County NY. He writes beautifully and tells the story of rural life wonderfully well. He gets to the heart of a person's life story. Be sure to visit Charles and listen to his tales.

Use the Drop Down Window to search selected areas of site for Obituaries and other slected information

These represent directories in the site's structure. Clipping section includes scrapbooks of obituaries, marriages, gossip, etc. It also includes new obits where the cemetery is not identified. The Obit by cemetery pages are by county BUT obits may be on an obit by cemetery page OR in the Clipping - scrapbook section. Check both. Also remember that people are often buried in a different county than the one in which they lived or died. Another point to be aware of is that some of the very small cemeteries that have few obits will have the obits on the cemetery listing page. They will be missed by this partitioned search of just the obituary directories. They will show up on the search which covers the entire site or the burials.
If you do not click the drop down list, you will think this is just the same form of the search engine we have had for several years. It is NOT - It is a major enhancement of its utility which I will develop further depending on positive feedback I do or do not get. At this point it partitions the obituaries and cemetery listings only. While obits are added daily, the search engine in not reindexed that frequently. Added obituaries will only register when the search engine is reindexed.

This first version allows searches just for burials and obituaries

Site Search by PicoSearch


Below  is an expanded version of the above with even more categories to narrow your search to individual sections of the site - It will be accurate as soon as I index the PICO again. Note this allows you to search individual directories of the site. if related information is in a different directory, this search will not find it - example - If military information is included in the family directory, it will not be found searching the military directory. Some pages that are older have not been relocated to the appropriate directories yet, so not finding an item where you expect does not mean it is not on the site.

If you do not take the time to press the drop down list, you will not have a clue how this works. Here is the gift. It is up to you to use it. Don't assume this is just the same old PICO we have had for several years. The number of Thank you notes I have received incdicates that fewer than 1% of my guests have even looked at this or recognized its value.

This Second Version includes above sudivisions and several additional to narrow your ability to search by category.
