Well hello world! I am back and getting in the swing of things. Well… trying to. It may take me several more weeks to catch up on everything that I need to.
However, there is a big change coming up in my professional life. As such, it does mean that my time will be once again split. Not that I ever have an abundance of time, but I will have even fewer me time hours for personal research.
Next week I will start a new job. The first time I will be employed outside of the home (by someone else) in nearly 16 years. Scary!! I accepted a part time position as a staff genealogist at Colonial Dames 17th Century in Washington, DC. A bit scary, a bit exciting, but I am looking forward to a new adventure. Plus the building is absolutely gorgeous and I have a library to peruse to my heart’s content. What could be better?!
Currently I am catching up with client reports and things that I owe people. I do have some new family history breakthroughs that I am typing up, so those stories are coming as well. Oh, and dad had moved in with us. I have a research partner now. He even has a NARA researcher’s card. Not sure who is more excited, me or him. In fact, I hope to get him set-up and comfortable as a guest blogger on here. I think it will be a cool thing.
If you would like to see or listen to an upcoming lecture make sure to check out my presentation page. There a quite a few coming up, and I am booking into 2017!
