    Wow, Pam—you are doing some amazing research. I confess to being totally overwhelmed by it (research). I love learning about my ancestors and reading their stories, but I don’t have the first clue about doing research. I really admire you for what you do–and how you share it to benefit others.

  1. Thank you, JoLyn. I love the stories, too; and I wish I knew more of them. I am a total history nut, and I enjoy putting the pieces together. It is the mystery of my own family’s history! I do not need TV or radio, just real places and people to discuss it with. Of course, I access some information on the internet, my fourth favorite way to learn things. My first three choices: 1. Real people and family members. I have learned more from listening than any other way, although you would never know it to hear me talk. 2. Real places, courthouses, cemeteries, libraries, historical societies, museums, and more. 3. Books.

    Thanks for the comment,. Oh yes, and also: never be overwhelmed by the thought of doing research. Just take a small step, and record it. Then, some day, take another one, and record it, too.
