The weather was delightfully pleasant. I didn’t need the sweater. Today, a lot of “impulse” buying. I don’t “need” three more vases… but they will look nice on a “bottle tree.” I don’t “need” some of the items from CVS but they were “on sale.” I don’t “need” Gaterade (from the market) but it was in the “markdowns” (deeply discounted). I rushed home to put perishables into the refrigerator and freezer.
Then I rushed across the street to the Escapees RV Club Headquarters to pick up mail for a friend. (“Friend” can’t get there before 4:00 PM). I stopped to visit with a friend with her law office in the Headquarters building.
It is such a pleasure to receive an affirmation for my work on Ancestry. The following is one of three messages sent to another researcher.
Joanna, I hope this link connects you to information I received from Beverly Cayford. I went to my website titled Digitized Library of Family History and found the correspondence. Here’s the link: https://frantzdigitizedlibrary.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/from-beverly-cayford-dated-21-feb-1995.pdf
I know you already have all the information but I thought you might like to see how we did genealogy “in the old days.”
Best wishes from Lorraine
In return, I received the following:
Dear Lorraine, I actually am Beverly Cayford; I have gone by Joanna for a long time, but it’s not my legal name. I am glad to know that you remember me with approval. I have the highest regard for your work and refer other Neher or Frantz researchers to it. Not only your research but your ability to organize the incredibly complex relationships into intelligible trees is most impressive. Thank you for all your work, and keep it up!
