They say that busy people get things done, and if that’s true I should not have any open dates in this blog sequence. But things have been happening and while they were, I’ve been accumulating a lot of stuff to share.
I’ve been going through boxes of family photos and documents, doing a little research at Delaware Public Archives, and brainstorming with family members and friends in the community who share a common interest in local history. Along the way, I’ve met a lot of people with whom I’ve shared my story and taken the time to listen to theirs. I hope that some of what appears here down the road may be of interest to you.
Finding old things in my surroundings and studying them in a historical context is a favorite past time and I’ve come to call it attic archaeology.
Family history is likewise important to me and I just had the opportunity to contribute a chapter to a recently published book on the Carey/Cary Family.
Having taken over my family’s picture framing business two years ago, I added a lamp repair service, and I have been very pleased with the response, in both cases.
Now, getting some of the results of these efforts into an interesting and presentable form has become my goal for the year ahead.
Be back soon…
