I didn't have a story for today until this morning. And it's a story that has made me squeal with delight! As regular readers know, I am keenly interested in genealogy and the history of my family. My tree is viewable on the Ancestry website.
To cut a years old story very short, I am finally, at long last, in touch with the granddaughter of my Great Uncle. He went to live in the US in the 1940s and after he and his wife died in 1977 we lost touch with his son.
Now, I need to take the space to think through my reply to her. I don't want to overwhelm her with information or scare her off. There's that saying, good things come to those who wait. And as I have waited years for this moment, a few more hours won't hurt.
