Hi Mike!

Well, if I had the money, I might be tempted to take you up on the
suggestion! BUT....I would make sure I was only there between March and
July, so that I could miss the cold and the heat! :)

I don't know how the folks in TX, AR, and OK make it through the summers,
seriously. I guess if you grow up there, you are used to it, but boy does
it get hot!

You sure are missing that good southern cooking, aren't you?!

Well, when one brick wall is finally scaled, then you are freed up to go in
another direction, I guess. I don't know why I have picked certain of my
surnames to pursue and at what point I figure it's time to quit with a line.

I suppose a true genealogist wouldn't quit until he reached Adam, but I
think I will probably stay with my line until I find where in Europe they
came from, and then stop there, and work on the next. By then, I guess one
could hire Lloyds of London. I have heard that they have wonderful records
on the lineage of families over there.

One thing I have often you or anyone on the list collect
everything, or just your own direct line? Do you add every person whose
related in some way? I know of some people who only collect the siblings
of their ancestor, and stop there. And then there are others of you who
seem to have every person in Izard County among your collections.

Gotta run!
