I’ve now reached a total of 6,700 ancestors in my genealogy research. People ask me what I’ve been doing lately or in the past few months. I sort of fumble for an answer and then only after the conversation has moved on do I think of how I have spent my days – GENEALOGY RESEARCH.
And this work has sparked a great interest in reading history books. the last is Alison Weir’s The Life of Elizabeth I. A bit of a slog but well worth it in the end.
