…”more than twelve hours of triple-digit temperature.”
Miserable heat yesterday, today and tomorrow. The TV meteorologist said prolonged hours of triple-digit “feels like” temperature. On my horizon, another “genealogy challenge.” Regularly, I compare my individual with the individual in other Ancestry Member Family Trees. Another illustration of conflicting information.

Too many families? I was working with one family and it led–unexpectedly–to another familiar surname.
Obviously, I needed to develop that family connection. It led–unexpectedly–to another familiar surname. The families are intricately entwined.
The reason I can’t “walk away”: Details are “fresh” in my mind as I work with a family. I’m not as efficient when I return the next day (or next week).
Recent experience: “Yours truly” is a descendant of Michael Frantz (1687-1748). A week ago, the focus was on Rosemary Frantz–a descendant of Baltzar Frantz (1695-1747). In the process of documenting her extended family, I encountered descendants of Christian Frantz (1685-1739). Three brothers, immigrants to Pennsylvania, with descendants living in Kansas. It wasn’t a coordinated exodus from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Indiana, and Ohio. It is evidence of families moving westward to obtain farmland.
