Christmas in July
This is going to be a short post because I have to get the kids off to the babysitter this morning. I have to say, one of my favorite things in genealogy is when you get a surprise in the mail. Some new records, pictures, perhaps a book regarding family history...whatever it is I just love the thrill of waiting for some new treasure to arrive to me. I had taken a little break recently from doing deep research, with going away on vacation and helping out my best friend who just moved to my area, it wasn't on the forefront of my mind. And then there was an email that just popped into my in box the other day that notified me that I was about to have a bit of Christmas in July. My researcher friend who had taken pictures of the Mt Olive Church Cemetery graves in Riverdale, NC, said she went back out to the cemetery and rinsed the graves with water so she could get a clearer sense of the inscriptions. She took more pictures there and of my 2nd great grandfather Thomas Duke Harrison's home in New Bern. Oh my goodness, I want that package to be here right now. LOL. Oh well I will be patient. Have a great day everyone in genealogy land.
