We started cleaning out the garage, and came to the boxes of memorabilia. Family fotos and documents, going way back. Enough information to try to piece together a family tree, laboriously. A copy of a will of one of my ancestors who owned 125 slaves (I am not proud of this). They were divided into six lots to be distributed to his family, along with the livestock. No indication if the lots kept families together or split them up.
Disgusting but interesting.
Found family history going back to 1645, and fotos of great great grandparents, and an interesting letter from my great grandfather, 1906.
Then there was a gap in the family tree but I was able to find it on the net. And of course, then I got interested in the other side of the family, and found a little more on the net.

Need to get back to the new book. Maybe get it published in July?
But before I get back to the book, I need to collect all the memorabilia papers that are spread out all over the dining room table.
