Notes from the past…

What have I been doing lately…

Not much genealogical research, at least not in the traditional use of the term…
The here and now is always more important. By that, I mean… my living ancestors! My dad is doing very well after his triple bypass of a month ago. I went to visit him in Louisiana the weekend before Thanksgiving. I went to physical therapy with him one day, and was very impressed. He walked on the treadmill for 18 minutes at a pretty good pace, then rode the stationary bicycle, then a bit of work with weights, all under close supervision, of course. The next day was Saturday, and he didn’t go to PT because of the weekend. So we went for a walk instead. As we walked up a hill heading back to his house, he asked me, “Am I walking too fast for you?” This from a 78-year-old man who is one month post triple bypass surgery! Anyway, he is doing great, and I am very thankful!
I have been very busy with Thanksgiving and watching my granddaughter this past week, so I haven’t done any research. I continue to check my Bloglines account daily, keeping up with reading all those genealogy blogs. They are a fantastic source of inspiration and ideas for research!
Other than the above, I have continued to work on the Lampasas County Marriage transcriptions. And I am always on the look-out for any new clues or pieces to the puzzle!
I may not get much more work done from now until New Years, as this is such a busy time of the year. But, you never know…

Haven't done much research lately…

I have been so busy for the past 2-3 weeks, that I haven’t had time for much of anything!
My Dad had a triple bypass last week, so I spent several days with him. He is doing great, though, so I’m not so worried about him. He is currently in a rehab facility and expects to go home in a few days!
While I was at the hospital with him, there was a lot of time spent in the Surgery or ICU Waiting rooms. I am so glad I decided to bring my laptop with me, as I was able to complete the work on the Limestone County Marriage Records. When I got back home this past weekend, I emailed the spreadsheet back to the Ft Worth Genealogical Society, and now I have started on the Lampasas County records. They are typed and are a lot easier to read!
