Tonight I finally posted the Searings on the Internet – January 2009. Only two more months to get caught up in this category. My methodology is to set up a Google Alert for as many permutations for ‘Searing’ as I can think of, as in: Searing family, Searing author, Searing funeral. And let it bring internet entries to me. I’m not sure how well the Alerts work, but it will find my blog entries within a day or two of my entries. Very few of the ‘finds’ are about Searings…most are deleted by me because they are about searing as an adjective or noun (once I got enough entries for my Searing as a Part of Speech page..see the Pages list). Then I research the entries, checking the sites, finding the date and reporter if its from a paper and edit the text, trying to provide enough information so a reader can find the entry on the internet. I write or place the text in a Google Doc, and copy it to the blog space. I’m certainly not adept at entering/editing text! But it seems to work. Why? Because I like to see what Searings are up to, and I am still amazed at the power of the internet to provide a wellspring of information about our family members. Dan
