Back to Work

It's been way over a month since my last post, and high time I was back to work.  Blogging isn't my best skill, but it's definitely an important one in this world of genealogy.  If I didn't know this before, I found it out a week ago, when I was contacted by an unknown, distant relative for the first time.  She had seen the blog, and an entry for our common ancestor, and emailed me.  And now, I'm the recipient of a new genealogy friend. 

She's been researching as well, and found other family members in Pennsylvania who hold a treasure in family photographs. She also has old photos of the family, and has shared some with me.  It's so exciting, seeing a picture of someone I've been researching; in a way, it brings them back to life for me, if only for a few minutes. 

So now, I'll be working on sorting through all that information we collected over the summer (no, I still haven't finished that).  And now, it's been long enough, that when I review a scan, I'm surprised all over again.  Procrastination does have it's (few) rewards.
