Wow. Lots of places around York city. But I went off the beaten path, too!
So, let’s get this straight: I’m no where near done with this map.
Since the whole ideaLab program is over-ish (BIG SAD FACE), I wanted to show some of the successful places I’ve traveled in pursuit of my project. Continue reading

This story seems, at first, kind of self-serving.
Except it’s not.
I’ve never been a huge genealogy person. I know what I know, and that’s enough.

Initially, it was kind of annoying.
I wanted to write my story, get it out of the way and move onto the zillion other things I needed to do that day. Yet he wouldn’t take my body language cues.
He kept talking and talking and wouldn’t leave me alone.
