Yup, I am behind. This week can’t blame Thomas or his tiaras. Instead have to blame a lack of caring on my part. Winter has hit the Deep South, schools have been closed, having a hard time finding motivation to work, clean house, do much besides watch the snow and pray for spring….

I have been doing the Go over now for 7 weeks and I admit that this week, I haven’t even read Thomas’ email. For one, the deep south has been anticipating this: And so, I have been busy watching the weather and preparing… Okay I have been doing what ever southerner does when 3-10 inches… Continue reading Genealogy Go Over-The Epiphany…..
