PROMPT: “Cousin bait” is a term used to describe the ways we try to attract the attention of others researching our families. It could be things like blogging, having a public online tree, or leaving comments on a FindAGrave memorial. Have you successfully set cousin bait or got hooked by someone else’s? (You could also take a more literal route and talk about fishermen in your family tree.)
Having been vaccinated and anxious to go out into the world, I have been traveling and away from my desktop and, thus, have some catching up to do with regard to my 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge posts.
Therefore, in the interests of expediency, my belated posts may be a bit more succinct or in this case, consist of a photo.
For “Cousin Bait”, I submit the following photo of my granduncle fishing–probably somewhere in Crawford County, Kansas. I don’t know about you, but I think he seems awfully dressed up for a fishing expedition! I love the photo, however.
For thirty years, I have been a member of the oboe section in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. I am a New York Mets full season-ticket holder.
My site Perfect Pitch explores the intersection of Major League Baseball and playing for my own team at the MET.
On my site Talking Leaves, I profile my progenitors and genealogical pursuits.
