Tombstone Tuesday ~ Guy Daniel Rogers

 Guy Daniel Rogers was the second child born 3 March 1922 to John Robert & Ollie Minnie (Laymire) Rogers in Rowlesburg, Preston County, West Virginia. 

Guy spent his early years in Rowlesburg with the family.  Shortly after John and Ollie were divorced, John took Guy and their other son Richard to Rochester, New York.  There he grew up and enlisted in World War II. 

Guy served in the Asian Region.  During his enlistment he wrote letters to his sister, Ruby.  Unfortunately, Guy never made it home to the U.S. Guy drowned in Manila, Philippines on 9 February 1944 and is buried at Fort Bonifacio, Philippines.

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - "I Like It"

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - "I Like It" from Randy Seaver!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  A Facebook meme for women went viral this week - the "I Like It" meme which garnered responses like "I Like It ... On the Couch" or "I Like it ... on the Table."  The subject was "purse" - where to put their purse.  The mind boggled for awhile with some of the responses from supposedly proper genealogy ladies.

2)  Please write an "I Like It" post on the theme of "I like doing genealogy research" someplace, and why.

3)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, in a comment or note on Facebook.

I like to do genealogy at Special Collections in the Akron Summit County Public Library, Akron, Ohio!  
Special Collections, Akron, Ohio 
They have the best Librarians, who are very knowledgeable and helpful.  They can track down just about anything you are looking for!  You can tell they really love their jobs.  They also have an awesome collection of not just Ohio, but other States and Countries.  They are always working on new projects and love feedback from their researchers, casual and professional.  There is always something new to read and check out. I love Special Collections!

Where do you like to research?
