Planning a Trip

DH and I are planning a trip up north to visit one of his cousins - this one in New York. Every time the DH makes snide remarks about my genealogy passion, I remind him that we found this cousin through my family research.

On the way back, we hope to hit Winchester, Middletown and Strasburg, Virginia. Can we say Belle Grove Plantation?

I emailed an archives in Virginia. I won't say which one, but the email I got back had a bad link - they had the name of the library/archives spelled wrong! And on the attached form for paid research, the email address was spelled wrong. Somehow that really scares me!

  1. My husband deals with my obsession. Mainly because I am doing a lot of reasearch on his side. My ancestors came over late in the 19th century and his came much earlier.

    He even made a stop at Allegheny County PA city-county building to help me find his great grandmothers second marriage certificate so I could find the name of his 2x great grandparents. He was impressed.
