“The plan” was simply to add pages to the notebook of family history. An invitation to “go to a ‘parts house'” was accepted and became a sight-seeing experience. I suspect it was one-hundred-fifty miles (or more) and I saw areas and towns new to this “don’t know a thing about Central Texas” resident.
We were near the ranch of former President George Bush “but all you can see is trees.” I’ve lived in Waco for fifteen months and did not know that George and Laura Bush lived within fifty-five miles.
Yesterday, I received a request for information (genealogy) and I could not tie the request to any individuals in my several family trees.

Good Palm Sunday morning to you, Julia. Thanks for your message. Sorry to disappoint you but I do not have that book. What prompted you to think I had a copy?
Best wishes from Lorraine Edwards
Her reply and my answer.
Re: The History of William Denham and His FamilyI found the link
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~OMG!!! My sincere apology!!!! SINCERE THANKS, Julia, for the link and “jogging my memory.” That message was posted many years ago. I’ve moved a couple of times since that message. I’m sure I still have the notebook but I have no idea where it is stored. I’ll begin a search but it will not be an overnight success. I cannot guarantee the value of the information. Because I’ve been “doing” genealogy since the 1980s, people know of my obsession. Someone gave me the notebook because it ended up among a donation to a Thrift Shop. I think that is the background but I may be misstating how it came to me.THANK YOU FOR CONTACTING ME!!!! No cost to you, if I can find… I’ll gladly send.BEST WISHES from Lorraine
Correction: Catch up!!
I got to a “stopping point”; I finally had every person and every source I could locate for the Tiner-Harris family. The pages have been printed and they are in plastic page protectors.
“Plastic page protectors” because Ancestry.com doesn’t offer a way to adjust margins. “Three-hole punch” would “punch” into text.
