Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun – A “Bucket List” Meme

Each week on Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings blog he has a post for Saturday night Genealogy fun. Because of the time difference, I have called my series Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun. This week’s mission was:

1)   A “Bucket List” meme went around Facebook several years ago where you put an “X” in the box if you have done it!  

2)  Copy and paste it into your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or on Facebook and fill it out (erase my entries and insert your own).

3)  Put a comment on this blog post to tell me where I can read all about you!
