Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

…downloading Dr John F Kennedy’s NARA file to my hard drive, along with all the other goodies I have found on Footnote in the past several days. Why? You see, it’s like this….(remember the Saturday Night Live skits about Wayne’s World? The part where Wayne and Garth fade away into their day dreams (usually about Heather Locklear!)? Remember the strange sounds as their imaginations take over? Well, those sound effects can be heard right now!)… I originally had a free acount at Footnote and I had bought and downloaded a couple of death certificiates from them. The items I bought were supposed to stay in my “account” online, available to me forever more. Problem is, when I actually went to a paid subscription, those items disappeared from my account. So, now I make sure I download everything to my hard drive (which I had already done with the 2 death certificates, anyway), for when someday I don’t have a paid subscription. Just in case…

Anyway, the plan is to create ebooks out of these new-found yummies. Might be a little while, cause I have been pretty busy at work, plus it is so hot in Texas right now that I just don’t feel like doing anything, genealogy or otherwise.

But I’m sure I’ll get back to research soon enough. It’s hot in Texas 5-6 months out of the year, and I’m not fixin’ to waste all that valuable time, believe me!
