I had every intention of sitting down and wowing everyone with my humor and wit with this one.
Oddly, though, when I sat down to do that, I remembered that I had forgotten something I’d meant to do. I’m in the midst of an indexing project that might eventually turn into a book project (remains to be seen) and I had some broken links at the site I was working with , so I went back to try and see if I could guess the correct urls for those missing pages. Well, some I found, some I didn’t. While I was doing that, I remembered something else I had wanted to check out on Ancestry. I played around there for an hour or so, which led me to the Delaware Archives site to check their probate index, newspapers on GenealogyBank and Google, and a relatively quick Footnote check. One of the things I found needed to be entered into the database, so I spent quite awhile in Evidence Explained. Something in that caused a forgotten synapse to fire and off I headed to FamilySearch…and we all know how much of our lives can be lost there. Then I remembered that I was supposed to be working on that indexing thing and went back and worked on that some more.
Looking up at the clock, I see that it’s quite a bit into Sunday already. I completely missed Saturday night and its genealogy fun.
I got the GOCD bad. I got it real bad.
