I find myself making printed copies of the various pieces of information I’m finding about my ancestors. All to be pulled together at some point into a cohesive whole publication. Meanwhile I’m supporting the printing and paper industries. And I’m getting diverted down side lanes and avenue – but of course all to do with the genealogy. e.g. I’m currently reading a book about Laura Ingalls Wilder. Well there’s a great diversion! I love it. A frontier woman and a writer.
