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.
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…
