Yeah, I know that sounds pretty gruesome but it actually isn't. Really. I promise I am not using a shovel or a backhoe. Really.
My mother-in-law's side of the family is having a reunion in Boulder, Colorado this July and in between running thither and yon as the kids taxi driver (and ATM machine) I have been trying to update (in my copious amounts of free time[heavy on the sarcasm]) the genealogy that I had done for her so that I can share it at the family reunion. My MIL passed away a couple of years ago so I can not ask her all the things I now wish I had. Sigh.
So if the posts are a little light lately, you now know what I am up to. Believe me when I say that there are no zombies or coffins involved. Only a family mystery or two to solve...
If you have seen the TV show, "Who do you think you are?" I have got to tell you that it is NOT as easy as they make it look. One day, when I win the lottery, I will have professionals do this for me, but until that happy day I guess I will have to be the one to do all the dusty, frustrating and sometimes surprising duty.
