Back to Work

We arrived back home from North Carolina last night after a thirteen-hour drive punctuated by rain, sleet, and snow from West Virginia all the way to Michigan.  Oh, the joys of Spring.  I took not one, but two notebook computers with me for our five day stay.  One was from work, so I could prepare better to teach the RSS class online for the first time this week.  That one I opened once.  The other was my personal computer with my Legacy genealogy software installed.  I had hoped to meet with one of my husband’s cousins who has been doing the family research for almost a half century.  As it turned out, she had caught a cold at the funeral of my husband’s brother-in-law and couldn’t see me.  Instead, my sister-in-law gave me a notebook with all of this cousin’s research in it.  I opened it with great anticipation and was so disappointed to find a number of incorrect dates and names.  This person is a retired librarian and I thought the information would be as accurate as I would expect of myself.  This has made me even more determined to double-check my sources and dates with each tidbit I enter into my database.  On the positive side, I took my trusty digital camera and covered four family cemeteries in the space of two days.  I can’t wait to put them on my computer and work with them, but I still have that RSS class looming large on the horizon.  Hmmmm…. I might have to wait until NEXT week to play with my photos!
