Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been mostly consumed with the time-intensive task of job searching in an economy without too many jobs. But today I decided to take some time away from the grind to go to my local FHC in Kirtland, OH and look through the films I ordered (Cumberland County, PA Deed and Estate indexes). Imagine my surprise, when upon signing in, getting my first film, and walking into the reading room, that all of the available readers were taken! Maybe it’s because most of my research has traditionally been done in the winter at night, but that has never happened to me. Even though it was a little inconvenient, it was great to see that there were that many people actually doing genealogy!

A Little Legalese
