Greetings and Salutations from one happy student...That's right, I got back into university for one semester. Things feel so good right now, being able to really take the first step in my path to becoming an accredited researcher in genealogy...it is truly happening!
However I did happen to have a doctor's appointment today during class that I could not reschedule. Oh well, no genealogy researcher goes unprepared when they carry a bag or purse regularly. Therefore, I talked to my professor, whipped out my voice recorder, gave it to a friend to record the lecture for me, then headed on my merry way.
The best part? There is a painting in the classroom of the Ellen Maria, a passenger ship that only made three voyages in the 1850s, carrying Saints from Liverpool to New Orleans, one of those which happened to be my 4th great grandfather and his family.
