Research Trip in the Works

After researching my family off and on for the past 20 years, I'm finally going to make a trip to my paternal ancestors home county.

The goal is to do this trip on September 12th. Yes this first trip will only be a one day trip, so between now and then, I will need to get back on top of things since I've not really done any research this year or for that matter in the last 3 years.

I would like to spend more time in the ancestral home county but one of my 2nd cousins, my grand Aunt Goldie's grandson, will be going with me, so time will be limited. Cousin Clifford can only expend one day and Friday's and Monday's are the best for him. I'm still contemplating going ahead of him and spending a day there just by myself.

I'm sure I'll be consulting a few of my genealogy buds, who research nearby areas, so I can decide what is the best use of my time during my second research trip ever but my first trip on the paternal side of my family.

So, over the next month, I'll be formulating and laying out my plan of attack. I'm excited to finally be taking this journey.
