Time for a few last minute updates to squeeze into Feb. First is an article by Daniel Searing, MD (not me, ha). I would like to feature him in Notable Searings if I can find sufficient information. Here is a link to at least a summary of his article: http://bit.ly/fUOsl6. Don’t forget to check #searing on Twitter if you are so minded. I have tried to tag Searing contributions and retweet them with the hashtag as I find them and as appropriateWatch for an entry on the Searing Quartet, which I am still working on. Although not a ‘family’ business they were very open and friendly and in ‘all things Searing’ they deserve a mention. Also, please check out the group My Name is Searing on Facebook and leave a mention! Also, I take any and all suggestions and ideas!

Posted today on Facebook by Michael Krenzer (Donna Searing Krenzer’s grandson) is a wonderful blog reference about how small our ‘broadcast bubble’ in the Milky Way is: http://blog.jackadam.net/2011/the-tiny-humanity-bubble/ Great short post, great comments. Astronomy and our place in the universe has always been an interest of mine, and it’s Searing related, so I wanted to share it. But it also fits in another context. The Searing (and relations) bubble is also small. The family hasn’t (yet) multiplied into the 10′s of thousands other families have. That makes ‘us’ easier to keep track of and to explore the past lives and present accomplishments of family members according to our time and interests. I hope other Searing family members will point out things to post!!

Just happened upon mention of Echoes of Other Days, by Elsa Searing McGinn and Howard Glyndon, who of course is Laura Redden Searing. Ms Mcginn is her daughter. The best reference to the book is: http://bit.ly/hEheYk A Google Books reference. It can also be found on eBay, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, to mention just a few possible sources. I know nothing about the book and would appreciate any information. At some point I would also like some information on Ms. Mcginn, and will research her when time permits.
ATTN: Searings! there is a wonderful musical instrument by Burge Searing on eBay for only another day….search for:Earl Burge Searing Signed Numbered Hammered Dulcimer So far the price is pretty reasonable. See blog.searingfamily.com for more details on Earl Searing. These hand made instruments don’t come up very often. I am NOT the seller…:). But it would be great to have a Searing own this item.
Ouch…a whole month without an entry! I wondered about that and sat down to do a quick entry so I would have a July archive entry, but got sidetracked. Perhaps that’s the story of July 2010. Not that I haven’t accumulated material for entry: eBay results and postings, lots of entries on health care by our Adam Searing, some notes about Searing athletes, some Facebook and Twitter entries. But, hey, it’s summer, it’s HOT out here in the East, lots of other things to think about besides Searings on the internet. But now it’s August…the Dog Days (of searing heat? perfect for searing food on the grill? cf my page on Searing as a Part of Speech). Time to catalog some of my saved entries and share them with you.
In follow up to my May 24 entry, re our blog being listed in Geneabloggers http://www.geneabloggers.com/ special mention was made of the Searing Family Blog in the list of new genealogy blogs at http://www.geneabloggers.com/genealogy-blogs-29-2010/. Thank you very much Thomas MacEntee, who authors High-Definition Genealogy (see his comment to the May 24th entry below)….again, this is a direct result of exploring Twitter. Tom is ‘hidefgen’ and there are lots of other genealogy folks on Twitter, most of whom I have not had a chance to explore. But I certainly can recommend Tom. I continue to believe that Twitter is a very young resource whose possibilities we have yet to even start exploiting. Our mention in Geneabloggers has already resulted in a nice note from Sand Dune Books about their offerings. (Google for their info) I realize there may be more advertising contacts than Searing information from these mentions, but ‘bring’em on’. I am happy with any additional word on the blog.
