New Year, New Decade
New beginnings mean new starts. So of course, I resolve to do better than before. My resolutions include:
* First of all, posting more.
* Solving at least one mystery of my family's ancestors.
* I intend to visit Featherstone Castle in Northumberland County, England. This castle may have some connection to my Warren/Featherston roots. It will be mostly a trip of curiosity. I do not expect to have some profound epiphany while there.
* I hope to go to Mississippi once again but this time I will venture into the county courts. The trip to the state archive was monumentally disappointing.
* I will make at least one pilgrimage to one of the genealogy libraries, probably Fort Wayne, although I would love to get back to the Tennessee state archives and the national archives in D.C.
I realize resolutions are often broken so I'm trying not to reach too far beyond my grasp.
