Finding unexpected family history connections is great and makes me want to research as far as possible in the new line. Who knows what unexpected jewels can be found? Doing research is like a cross between reading a who-done-it and putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Come to think of it, I like doing both of those things.
What I want to do here, though, is to write about social history which will be of general interest while also tying into the research I am doing to put my family in their historical milieu. Work is currently ongoing on a new topic which will be in my next post.
