Yesterday was Robert Burns birthday. I could not find Haggis anywhere. What good is lifting the 21 year old ban if I can't buy it in the grocery store.

Another great Craig post. This one has led to a research to-do. Read about haggis. Dad told me to always rid any remnant of the lungs in food preparation. Lungs are key to haggis; thus the research to-do.

Introduction


Years ago (it was 1966) I found a piece of Scott Hunting Tartan and that began a journey. For years, although I saw people sticking their heads inside microfilm machines, I did not realize they were organized. I found, after meeting some of those people, that I was a hatch, match and dispatch kind of person with very thin floating ancestors. I actually did not know any better. So in 1985 I began to learn how to research and then there came a point at a place in Alabama in a course that is special (in 1993) that I learned how to think as a genealogist. It was a catharsis. And the journey continued. Today I teach in that course. And a few others. I am passionate about sharing my thoughts in hopes that I can convince you that the journey is not about being a hatch, match and dispatch kind of person, but a genealogist with fat ancestors on the ground with garlands of citations around them and the aura of sources about them.
