Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories

I don't know why it should surprise me but it still does! A bit ago, I has a comment from Dr. Bill on one of my postings and so I checked out his blog and have been following it. Yesterday, I saw the Tombstone Tuesday posting and went back today to take a closer look at the photo. [Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog]

It was a great story and I decided to say so. Well, after leaving my comment, I spied the links on the side of the page and it dawned on me [insert V8 commerical slap to the head here] that Dr. Bill and his wife Nancy are my edtech friend, Dr. Annette Lamb's PARENTS. Wow. I knew they were family historians, too. I should have figured this out at my first visit. Duh!

I know it was the photo of Nancy Smith with the gravestone that shook the cobwebs out of my fuzzy December brain.

Isn't that amazing???????

I know that feeling - I emailed someone that was supposedly compiling cemetery records that I was interested in, and they referred me to someone who REALLY had all the information... turned out to be my own father!! Lol!
