Love of History
For the last few days, I have immersed myself in my Love of History to deal with my emotional pain. I have added so much data to my Family Tree that is is somewhat mind boggling.
First thing I did was work on my side of the family adding facts about Uncle Charlie and his family, the latest was Angi's details.
Then I saw lots of hints and I followed all kind of trails to gather information. I even added stories from Cousin Conn's letter of 1981. I used the information from the little book "Reminiscences of Thomas B. Wilson" to add other important time lines.
I had gathered some of Uncle Albert's photos and newspaper clippings from his boxes which I am sure have not been disturbed since they were packed (Due to the amount of Dust Bunnies) and found a copy of his wedding invitation to Aunt Zue (no I did not spell this wrong) In ink it had 1899 written on it but the info on the web said it was 1900. I figure the hand written number was correct.
Santa brought me my very own computer (all others I have had were hand me ups from Puppy and the one I was using had become very slow) however, my new one is fast and if you hover long you will be taken to places you did not intend to go. L0L I told you this so you will know what I am doing in case I do not respond. Also, I need to learn how to scan old documents and photos so Puppy has a full time job educating his Mother how to complete things which were second nature on the old machine.
Going back to family history, my SIL said "That is a lot of WORK."
The Kitty Justice is it is work I do not mind completing and someday, someone will truly appreciate my efforts.
