And once *I'm* dead, there won't be any one in that family line who would be interested.
you should make provisions in your will to ship all of your research and your scrapbooks to the Mormon Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City. My aunt put one of our family books there (it was fun to find it in the library) They take stuff even if you are not Mormon...
Wow! What interesting stories! It has been many years since I've messed with Ancestry.com. Get the holidays over with and I may have to do some more checking out. And Newspapers,com sounds good too. Thanks for the encouragement. We did find out on Ancestry that one of DH's greaty greats was sent to Newcastle prison in London for some minor offence. We surmised that he did it to be sent to America because when the prison got too crowded, they would ship them to America. His way of getting over, I guess. Thank you for sharing your stories.
So sad your cousin is being pigheaded about sharing those old photos and documents. Seems like most families have "one of those". I have one of those cousins like that. She would tell me about all the photos and documents she had, but she certainly wouldn't share ( too hard to look for). She was also a hoarder and a bit off her rocker. She would rather pitch things than share. When her nephews went through her house after she went into the nursing home, they looked hard for the photos and stuff but found nothing. Grrrr...
I don't know how long it's been since you originally reached out to your cousin, if it's been a few years you might try again. He might have come to realize that at some point he's going to have to or hire someone to clean out that attic if he's ever going to sell the house. Unless he's planning on making it his forever home, than other family will have to clean it out.
I thought you were going to applique that whole piece of smooshed hexies onto a background. Then you wouldn't need more hexies around the edges, although a green might look nice. I remember you starting this.

They are also in the process of digitalizing all the info and anyone can have access. Good for anyone researching.
Yeah, the plan is to still applique all the smooshed hexies onto a background, but I think I want a less zig-zaggy edge at this point.
I *also* made a basic mistake when I was constructing the very first row but didn't discover the error until a couple of rows in .. when I was wondering why the heck the hexies weren't lining up as I expected. It turned out that on that very first row, I didn't align the hexies in the correct orientation. Sigh. Well ... I decided just to leave it the way it was. Consider it a "design opportunity". :-)
I'm thinking that hexies, cleverly disguised as green "leaves" might add a bit of interest around the perimeter. We'll see how that goes. :-)
I’m always inspired by retreats. Also trying things I wouldn’t at home such as the bargello you taught. I loved that!
Those napkins are so cool!
