Genealogy ~ When Records Fall In Your Lap

You know you are having a good day when you open an old hand-me-down novel and find an old folded and worn note that lists dates for your ancestors. 

Who wrote it?  When?  The paper is so old and fragile, I’m putting it under glass before attempting a hi-res scan but here is a quick low-res photo.  The ink is so faded that the original is hard to read but a few tweaks brought out the text.

How will I store the original?  Don’t know yet.  I have six or seven other old notes in the same condition all stored vertically in archival sleeves “in a cool dark place”.

Leave a comment if you have a good storage solution.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
