I purchased the incorrect "pink" book for my 5th generation ancestor in my line to George Soule. That volume would have included information about my ancestor, Matthew Stillman Barber of Westerly, RI.
So you can imagine my annoyance with myself that I bought the wrong volume. I stuck it in my bookcase and went on with my life fulling intending to give it to someone whose ancestor is in it.
So, I get to my husband's line and said to myself maybe I should look over that pink book ? Yes, you guessed it. His ancestor is in it.
This kind of coincidence, while common in genealogy work, still seems to keep reminding me that we are guided to the right record at the right time. (Yes, I have read Hank Jones books)
Well, back to work.
