Unfortunately, things haven’t slowed down at work at all this week … if anything, the work (and stress) has increased.  Thankfully, about 8 inches of snow got dumped on Chattanooga last night, so today (Thursday) I’m playing catch-up. Objective: Conduct…

My experience at the library can be classified as very productive and pleasant.  With the exception of a few people who could use some fine-tuning in the etiquette department (speaking loudly on their cell phones on the 3rd floor, etc.), the patrons were all relatively docile, and (for the most part) the workers were helpful.  I am looking forward to scheduling another trip soon.

It is unknown when or in which paper this article was published.  I believe it to be 1929 or 1930, as I think Alan Conor was Mayor until 1928, but if the articles are in a somewhat chronological order in the scrapbook, one has to wonder about the timing…

I have been a complete and total slacker this week.  Even though it’s just a 2-hour time difference, traveling to Salt Lake City and back has wreaked havoc on my internal clock.  I think next time I go out there, I’ll leave myself a 2-day buffer to…

Thanks - now I don't feel so bad. It was just a busy couple of days and the amount of walking at the Salt Palace (between #fgs2015  and #rootstech2015  sessions certainly got my day's goal for walking in with no problem!). Going through everything I brought back and then getting caught up (especially on my sleep) means that this week was done in a bit of slow motion. Buffer is a good idea for the next time +Jenny Lanctot. But so much fun that it was worth it!

I’ve had a subscription to Audible for a couple of months.  I’ve discovered that listening to a book while I’m driving makes me WAY less stabby and rage-y, so I figure it’s money well spent.   [amazon text=Not My Father’s Son&asin=B00HU5F3UU] by Alan…

The book featured on Radio 4 a few months back, read by the author.  A good listen.

In continuation of the accolades received from thwarting the escape of three hardened criminals, several articles appeared in the paper over the days following.  This is one of them.  Thank goodness these men were locked up without a moment’s delay.…

Story
Tagline
I want to connect with other people in the genealogy world. However, if you add me to your circles and I can't view your profile, chances are ... I won't add you back unless something about you says "genealogy."
Introduction
Paralegal by day, but my alter ego is a Genealogist.  I have been working on my genealogy in fits and starts since about 1990, when my grandfather passed away and I inherited his research. I have just begun working through the NGS Home Study Course, well on my way toward genealogy certification. You can contact me at lostancestors [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am a member of the Kiva Genealogists for Families team. Please consider joining the team and make loans to help alleviate poverty worldwide and create a new family tradition at the same time! 
Bragging rights
I completed my AAS in Paralegal Studies at Chattanooga State in 2011 - summa cum laude, no less ... and survived.
