Today is the day I tackle the next big project. My grandpa, my father’s father, spent years compiling a genealogy of his side of the family. (My mother’s side was already done.) No one had dealt with these masses of loose papers and letters. Many of the envelopes have been unopened since my father’s death, and in only one or two have I glimpsed the contents.
I had lent my LDS sister in law much of this collection…the family groupings of diagrams, dates, and corroborative letters. I know how much this sort of research means to her and thought she might like to enter them in the LDS Database. Several years ago, I took the immediate family lists back thinking I would make a start on them at that time. Instead, I got sidetracked by the family photos rotting away down in high acid folders.
Now that all but two of the photos are scanned, today I’ll dig out what folders I still have. If I have to go to Costco to buy one of those white plastic work tables, I will. A small four footer will fit up here in the computer room. Later today, after roasting a chicken with fresh rosemary, I will sign on to Ancestery.com.
- Himself: Working too long at the computer without moving around. I worry.
- Herself: A busy happy day. Swim, work, drive down, a fish taco, meeting with a 17 point slice of birthday cake, then with G in charge we watched “Salt, MIB, and Baseball” all at once.
- Reading: A book about books. Really a list, but I was glad to see she had Cadell and Stevenson listed in her important books list. Me too.
- Balance: Making the Nook work. Yea!
