International Searings

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

One of the greatest things about the internet in my mind is the ‘range’ it provides in communications.  My personal example is the number of Searings I have met and communicated with from literally around the world.  Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Great Britain, Germany….and I hope there will be more in this coming year.  We are literally a small but international family.  Look for yourself on the internet and find your pen pals!

More Searing Artists

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Over the last several months, primarily on Facebook, I have discovered more Searing artists.  They are quite talented.  I am beginning to think there is a Searing artistic gene.  We will try to put some samples and more info in this arts section.

April Happenings

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Genealogy things..It is hard to find time…but there are things happening.  I explored using other genealogy programs, and tried to dig into the ones I have.  I often wonder if I’m more interested in the workings of exploring genealogy tools rather than researching family members.  And of course my fixation is trying to work out the whole Searing family..while still doing work on my own branch.  This month I also joined two new Facebook groups, Technology for Genealogy and The Organized Genealogist (I certainly need that one!).  The questions in the Technology one are basic but interesting.  I also bought a fascinating Searing item: a large picture embedded in some sort of early plastic…several gentlemen in front of a sign that says ‘Searing Pleasure Club’.  No one has been able to ID it so far.  A pic and more details are in the group My Name is Searing on Facebook.  If you want more details, please leave a comment.  We will try to find more information.

Let’s Get Started Again!

OK…OK…I admit it….my poor blog has been sadly neglected.  Rather than go into a whole lot of reasons… bloggers know what they are….let’s just jump right in.  I’m sorry it’s been so many months since there have been entries.  We’ll try to fix that.  We still want each and every reader of these posts to come back for more.  We hope we can encourage guest comments in greater numbers.  A lot has been happening in the Searing world that I will report on in the coming days/weeks/months.  For example:  the My Name is           Searing Group on Facebook has expanded considerably; two more Searing Facebook groups have started; I took an Ancestry DNA test and got some interesting, if not unexpected, results; one of the new Facebook groups resulted in the discovery and meet ups of long lost cousins; I bought another Searing painting on eBay and may be on the trail of finding out more about Searing artists; I also bought a very old ‘spirits/medicine’ bottle that still needs a lot of detective work; at least one new person has checked in by finding this blog and then following it to Facebook; we have expanded our Searing inquiries to Australia and the UK and Europe……just a sample of the exciting things happening in the Searing world…    And now it’s my challenge to report on these and make them interesting to our readers.  This I will try to do!
