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 am on vacation this week, so on Sunday I started with some serious spring cleaning. Fortunately, I live in a small, 2-bedroom duplex, so there wasn’t too awful much to do. I mainly wanted to locate my closet, again. It’d been sooooooo long… Anyway, I finished up my spring cleaning this morning, so now it’s back to research!
I finished (for now) Dr. Kennedy’s bio at although during the process I discovered I have lost part of his obit from the Hillsboro Mirror. I have a photocopy of the obit that I got from my aunt, but I also had one that I printed out from the Hillsboro City Library’s microfilmed collection. Between the two, I was able to transcribe the obit to the bio page. But I really want the microfilmed copy. So, I’m hoping to make a trip to Hillsboro one day this week while I’m on vacation. Hopefully Thursday or Friday, weather permitting. Right now, all of north Texas is under a flash-flood warning. Raining cats and dogs out there, folks!
So, I need to make a list of items to look for when I get to Hillsboro. It’s about an hour’s drive from my house, so I certainly want to use the time wisely and get as much as I can!
