OK, so you may have noticed a lack of posts on this blog in recent weeks. My apologies for that. My ongoing genealogical adventures which you can read about here have taken up much of my time and energy, but on top of that some other things came up: church work that had to be completed by a deadline and ongoing remodeling and renovation in my apartment. The church work is completed and in the rear view mirror, and I hope the renovation project will be done by the end of this week or some time next week at the latest. There may be one more period of “radio silence” yet to come when my carpeting gets torn up and replaced with tile. After that I hope everything will be back to what passes for normal around here and I can get on with the rest of my life. Until then, please bear with us.
