I've been researching my family history the last couple of weeks. It's something I do in spurts—a whole bunch for a month, and then maybe I won't touch it again for a year. I've been blessed this session to find a lot of resources from distant cousins who come from different branches of my family tree, and I've been able to find several faces to put with names.
I love being surprised by a photograph in my research.
I've found several entries in Google Books for two family members, one in metalworking journals and the other in Brown University alumni magazines. I never expected to find information there. Thank you Google! I love that so many old records are digitized.
