I knew this was going to happen. Between work and trying to organize my CG stuff, my blogging has fallen behind. But the clock has started.
It sounds like a lot of days, doesn’t it. HA!
I’ve chosen my three couples for my Narrative Lineage and organized the outline of that paper. They are my grandmother’s family and I did them early on. Oh my goodness. What sloppy, sloppy research. But I think I’ve cleaned it up and identified the families and am in the process of creating my initial Research list.
I’ve ordered more books. Turns out my library doesn’t have as much on Smyth County, Virginia as it should. And my husband is giving me those “how many genealogy books does one human being really need?” looks. Do you know those looks?
I’ve got my conflicting evidence problem picked out. And the research is done, it just needs to be written.
My transcript arrived and it doesn’t look too bad. The handwriting was fairly readable. I believe we aren’t suppose to give any details on those, so no more on that!
I’ve picked out a delightful Chancery Case that deals with gambling debts because I would like to delight the reviewers with something different than the same old wills and deeds I’m sure they see. It’s either that or a bible page I have, but I can’t figure out what half of it says at the moment.
A few of you sent me some good case studies, as did a friend, and once I get the rest of this in order, I will respond, I promise!
It all seems doable.
I’m also going to Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana next week to meet with librarians. It’s a work trip, but I should be able to squeeze some research in, so I’m pretty excited about that. I’ll try and post from the road. I’m doing a presentation for patrons while I am there, and once I give it I’ll post the PDF of the presentation on my How To page.
