Whew, that was quite a holiday break I took! You would think I went to some crazy, out of the way place in Wyoming, bought 14 books about genealogy/historical methods/editing, drank barium for a CT scan that was remarkably good, gave up carbs, crashed and burned because of lack of carbs, and cleaned my house from top to bottom just because. You would be wrong! Because I did NOT clean my house. Random vacuuming is alllll I have the patience for. And, yes, you can see (just slightly, really) kitty paw prints in the dust on my coffee table.
I was inspired by Jenna at Desperately Seeking Surnames who remarked that her surname page was a high traffic page. We all know one of the goals of blogging is as “cousin bait” (along with sharing the treasures and joys of our research and promulgating genealogical and historical research methods, blah blah blah).
So here’s a quick list done by hand. It includes documentally-connected families and all of my current theoretically-connected families. Before you think I have awesome information on, say, my family connections in Germany, think again. Overseas research is like vacuuming. I have enough awesome American ancestors that I can stay pleasantly busy with just those while avoiding household chores.
