September 22 - Enjoy the nice autumn weather

September 22 - The autumn weather's nice, so think outdoor genealogy: cemetery visits, walking tours of ancestral hometowns and similar excursions.

This time of year is perfect for traveling. It's not too hot, so you won't melt in the car. Most of the bugs are gone because it has cooled down a little. A lot of the foliage is dying off, so finding hidden cemeteries is easier, in the spring the ground can be so soggy. Plus kids are back in school, so parks are less crowded, I usually plan a picnic lunch in one of my ancestral hometowns. I can even talk my husband into visiting ancestral hometowns and walking the old neighborhoods, visiting the some antique shops, and going to the park for lunch is always a hit with him.

If you don't want to pack a bag lunch or you are on vacation, take your fast food order to go and eat in the park. Don't forget to leave the area cleaner than you found it.
