Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

I have found and saved so many documents and references (over 80 so far!) from that the documents section of my computer database is overflowing! So, I have begun the huge task of reorganizing all my files and saving them into surname categories, instead of the generic “documents” and “photographs” categories. A big job, but one that must be done. Then, I have to decide where to put all of the said documents and references. Many are just small mentions in the “society columns”, and as such don’t really merit saving the entire articles into my Family Tree Maker database. I also want to print out “hard copies” for my filing cabinet. And I still need to back the whole thing up to my usb flash drive (I’ll probably need another one!). So, I have a lot of work ahead of me!
I went to visit my dad for a few days this past week. He lives in a rural area of northern Louisiana. There are a lot of old cemeteries in rural areas in the South, and every time I passed one I just wanted to stop and explore! Guess I’m a hopeless genealogist!
