Intentions Derailed

I had intended to re-start my NoteWorthy Reads posts this week, but my intentions were derailed as I've been utterly wiped out by the office intestinal bug. I've missed several days of work and haven't done any genealogy research this week, haven't responded to emails (sorry - I'll start catching up soon) or even read much.  :(   This thing has to go away sometime soon, I'd think. (I hope.) So now I intend to re-start the NoteWorthy Reads posts next week. Thank you for your patience.

During my hiatus, I have relaxed, read, traveled, spent time with family, attended a beautiful wedding and welcomed a new person to the family. I have talked some aunts and an uncle into submitting DNA tests. I figured out how to watch the back seasons of the UK version of  "Who Do You Think You Are?" on my TV via YouTube.  And I updated the resource pages on this blog adding the source links I've found since January (there is more of everything but there are a LOT more links for Ireland, for some reason).

I've also met (via email) a new distant cousin-in-law, whose husband is also descended from George Taylor, Sr (my 3rd-great-grandfather on my father's side). I descend through George Taylor's daughter Elizabeth and her husband descends through George's daughter Margaret, about whom I knew virtually nothing until now --and now I'm learning so much more! Or I was, until this week; perhaps tomorrow I'll have the energy to get back to it - I sincerely hope so.

I just ran out of energy again, so I'm going to make this a short post now, and be back next week. Have a good weekend, everyone!


  1. Take care of yourself, Jo... these things can waylay you for ages... we'll still be here when you get back to it. You have still had a very busy time by the look of things.

  2. Thanks, Crissouli. I was busy until this week. This week I've been a lump on the couch.Or the bed. I want this over with.
