- I'd like to find more information about my relatives. That is the purpose of genealogy research in general and, by ignoring these resources, I'm ignoring a lot of information.
- I'd like to expand my knowledge of these different research tactics in general. Part of the reason that I haven't try these research methods is because I don't quite know how they work. Once I try them, I'll have more knowledge of research strategies.
- I'd like to challenge myself to step outside of my comfort zone. This applies to my entire life, not just to my genealogy research.

- To find a wave, type "with:public" and your search term. For example, "with:public Genealogy" will find the genealogy waves.
- When you create a wave, add 'email@example.com' to the wave. Google recommends adding 'firstname.lastname@example.org,' but I couldn't get that to work.
- Waves show up in your "inbox" just like email messages. When there's a new post, a number is added next to the wave's title. You'll have to click on every post (AKA blip) in a wave to get this number to go away, or click "read" at the top of the wave. Easily navigate each blip in a wave by utilizing your up and down arrow keys.
- You can expand a wave to take up the whole screen by hitting the maximize button on the top right of the wave's box.
- Also, you can click the minimize button to send the entire box up to the top of the screen onto a toolbar like area. It'll work like a pull-down menu now.
- You can add maps, photos and gadgets to blips. Start a new blip and then utilize the options on the toolbar that appears.

One of those musicians was Christopher Allen Bouchillon. Chris was born in Oconee County, SC on 21 Aug 1893 and is credited with originating the "talking blues" style. He recorded a number of songs with his brothers as "The Bouchillon Trio" and as a solo artist. Chris married my Great-Great Aunt Ethel Waters, sometime after 1920. It was the second marriage for both of them.
