Looking For Searings II

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Last April 2009 (see below) I wrote that there were 30 some Searings on Twitter….I’m happy to report that I just counted 80 +…obviously some are more active than others..:).  but it shows an interest in this brand of social media.   Twitter is still working on a ‘group’ function.  There is a ‘My Last Name is Searing’ group on Facebook….where a search for Searings will show over 500 rough ‘hits’.  There are 53 Searing wish lists on Amazon.  If there are other sites to aggregate Searing names, please let me know.  Anyway, obviously you can see the Twitter Searing list just by searching for ‘searing’, but if you want a copy of the Twitter names, I copied/pasted the list as of today (9-21-09)  I have a Google Docs copy I can send you.      Contact me through the blog, or at           Dan

Genealogy IS Warm and Fuzzy

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Last summer I was contacted through the blog by an expert genealogist whose great grandmother was a Searing, and who has taken a deep interest in researching the Searing family.  She has been extraordinary in assisting myself and a number of others with Searing family data.  Several months later I was contacted by another person who also had Searing relatives.  I put the two together and after a lot of work/research, a grandfather’s lost daughter was reunited with her niece…both had been searching for each other for 30 years…and it was genealogy research that united them!  As author of the Searing Family blog I was delighted to help!  Who are you looking for?

Catching Up

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Summers over.  Time to catch up with the blog.  Not a lot has happened..we’ve had a few Searings on eBay, some have shown up on various internet Google Alerts, some genealogy events have arisen, and most gratifying to me….some folks have sent me material to post on the blog.  Twitter Searings continue to grow, and there are even more Searings on Facebook, although the Searing group, My Last Name is Searing, continues to need some support!  So keep checking out and submitting the news.  I continue to look forward to Searings ‘checking in’!  See the About page for my email address.
