Brenham, Texas 2010
Things have been really busy here lately, genealogically speaking. Unfortunately what I'm doing doesn't make for good blog content.
I am slowly making my way through my genealogy goals which I drafted in December.
The organization goal is off and on, but I'm back on the horse. I'm scanning documents again and making my way through the first of three notebooks.
My quest for my 16th great-great grandparent hit a stall. Someone from Austria contacted me, but never replied to my response. The person wanted information from me, but I kept explaining that I needed to know how my Cecelia fits in the Jost tree. Language barrier or someone not interested in collaboration? I don't know. My next step is to gather email addresses from a special website devoted just to this region of Austria. I'm going to email them all and see what happens. I just need to set up a research form first so I can keep track of the correspondence.
That writing goal I had? Yeah, it's out of control. It's almost 17,000 words and starting to look like a full fledged book. This is the real reason I haven't posted much on this blog lately. All I've been doing is writing and editing. This is not exciting reading, so I don't write about it.
All this moves slowly because there are still client requests, cat requests, child requests and laundry to do. So far I've been able to balance it all but it would be great if we could extend the day by 25% or so.
