Reflections and a Resolution Update

This entry is part 253 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Today marks the last post in Belle’s box, archival book two. Two down, one to go! The third book had fewer transcriptions and more photos. I don’t know the names of each person in the photos, but I will continue to post each item. The entire series will end before the annual reunion of Belle’s …

Piles of Piles of Genealogy Research

OK, I admit it, I made a genealogy post on my other blog.  If you have piles of items you have not had time to file, waste a little more time checking it out.

I’ve managed to move my genealogy posts to this blog. I lost a few tags, not sure if I also lost those posts. I’m going through them to figure that out. I’m expecting to produce a perfectly somewhat possibly organized blog about my research and results. The problem with blogs is that they seem to …

Good Old-Fashioned Hard Work???

If you’ve been retired for a while, and I have, it gets harder to focus and accomplish tasks. At least it has for me. That is because time is available. Lots of it. It is easy to forget that it (the time, that is) continues to march on, even when nothing is done. And, there …
