I'm ba-a-ack!

It's been over a year since I last posted, but it's not for lack of things to post about or lack of interest in the Donner Party. During my sabbatical of wrestling with boring offline, real life stuff, I've continued to research and correspond about the Donners, so I have a lot of news to share about all sorts of events, places, and people. For example (in no particular order):

  * John Snyder's grave
  * French book about Mary Graves
  * Canadian article about John Baptiste Trudeau
  * Selim Woodworth
  * Charles Cady
  * California Trail Interpretive Center
  * Threat to Hastings Cutoff
  * Patty Reed descendants
  * Genealogy
  * Article by Elitha Donner Wilder descendant
  * Donner Party songs
  * Donner Party musical (!)
  * and more

Over the next weeks I'll be writing about these and other topics -- stay tuned!
