Where You’ll Find Me

I’m looking forward to the final (for me) South Carolina Historical Society lecture this week, and the reception to follow. This week is all about prep for a major research trip which. With luck, you’ll see me at the Family History Center scouring microfilm. Sunday is a travel day which will mean missing this month’s CC-SCGS meeting. Something I’m sorely disappointed about but it can’t be avoided. While you may not find me around much in person this week, you’ll see me online at the twitter chats!

Happy Hunting
