I'm unashamedly addicted to "skeleton rattling", otherwise known as Family History, and digging up everything I can about what the Dearly Departed did "in the dash"...what genies (genealogists) call the time between birth and death.  

I'm also a prolific reader of mysteries and biographies.  When I'm not curled up on the sofa with my nose in a book (or my new Kindle), I love to travel, even if only vicariously via travel shows on PBS.

Lately I've been combining my love of mysteries and family history by  "traveling" around Find A Grave (findagrave.com) connecting the Dearly Departed with their (deceased) parents, siblings, spouses and/or children, mostly from information acquired in 30+ years of research (mostly in my jammies since the internet was determined NOT to be a passing fad).  Putting such information "out there" seems much more useful than having it sit in my laptop waiting to be printed and sent to an interested 5th cousin 10 times removed, right?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! ;D
