I recently sat back and considered my family tree. I was pleased with how far back I had gotten, and the proof (documentation, sourcing) that I had acquired. Well, thought I, I think I’m done.
Considering I started on this road of research, oh, about 32 years ago, that might seem like quite a statement. And it is. But I feel contented.
At least I did. Then I happened across one of my grand-uncle’s lines that still had some intriguing question (oddly enough, I can’t even recall which grand-uncle line it was!). So there I was, back in waist deep. Well, it was a nice, if brief, retirement from genealogy.
