Not really. Just out of commission for a little while. Since my last post, I (barely) survived a week-long bout of the summer flu, which caused some missed deadlines for school (for which my instructor graciously granted some extra time), which has now caused me to play a serious game of catch-up on work, school, and housework. Needless to say, I’ve been a little behind the 8-ball.
In any case, a few nice things have happened over the past several days. I ordered the land records for my great-great grandfather and his brother from the National Archives back on July 16, and I received them this past Friday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting them for at least 60 days (according to the disclaimer on the NARA website when I ordered the records). I am having a very difficult time “ignoring” the records, but this is a necessary test of my willpower. If I get involved with them right now, I’ll never finish my last two weeks of school!
I also requested my great grandfather’s birth certificate from Perry County, Indiana, a couple of weeks ago, and received it in the mail yesterday. I was quite confused when I opened it … but I’m saving that for a future post.
I haven’t received my great great grandmother’s death certificate yet, but I hope to receive it in the next several days. I’m not in a big rush … again, only two weeks of school left.
So, my blog presence will probably be close to non-existent until after I take my final exam on August 12. After that … look out blogging world!
