If you enjoy genealogy, you might enjoy a visit to Digging in the Dirt: The Search for My Roots. The author and I have a connection through her spouse. We made the connection while ‘digging in the dirt’ of our past on the internet. My tree is chronicled, along with most of my notes at Hughes Family Tree: The lineage of the Hughes Family from Lauren, SC. Sadly, I have all but abandoned the site, but there are still those who pass by and read the notes. I have made a little progress since I last posted and probably should up-date the site.
Rummaging in the past can be quite pleasant as long as we do not stay too long or attempt to take up residence there. Understanding those who went before somehow seems to help strengthen me for today’s battles.
