I'm slow at writing my pages. You ask why??? Well I have this problem. I can't help myself. I start working on a page then my mind wanders and I stop what I'm doing and start looking again for more information about my ancestors.
Something will trigger my thinking and then I have to look at another avenue to try to find answers. My brother has said I would make a good detective. Well I want to know the answers. Sometimes it consumes me........and I want to know more. I want to get into the head of my ancestor. Why did he move on? Why did he go that way instead of the other way? Just like a small child always asking mommy why.
I never would have thought I would have this drive to want to know more. Maybe it's because it's about my family. Where ever the drive comes from, I have it....... bad.
Thus far there have been times where the information fell into my lap. Laptop that is, while I was searching for something else. Then when I followed up on the information, I found it to be true. What a wonderful surprise. You ask why do I have to follow up. Well let me tell you. When I first started out looking into my ancestors past I was told by a genealogist always follow up with the paper work. Don't take someones word for it. Put that piece of paper in your hand that tells you yes, you are correct.
A good bit of advice I've followed and I will continue. So it's off to look in another direction.
