If you’ve been checking in and wondering where I’ve been, I’ve been among the living. The Fall set in with a vengeance. It looks like genealogy will have to be a summer hobby for me for the foreseeable future. The good news is when I work, I really work. So summers will hopefully be fruitful. In the meantime, I’m happy to update the site with any information you may have or correct any errors you may find.
Anyone who’s done much genealogy work knows that you’re constantly torn between depth or breadth. Do I spend more time trying to get farther back or capturing all the “outlying” members of past generations. I want to do both and have managed to so far. However, I feel like a concentrated effort and a little bit of travel next summer may gain us another generation further back. James Banks’ daddy, Thomas, is just within reach. So perhaps next summer I’ll make a trip to Kershaw and Sumter Counties in SC and see if I can’t find anything.
Anyway…don’t take my lack of activity as a lack of interest. There’s just not enough time in a day during the school year to get it all done. It’s on my mind and hopefully, come summer, I’ll be back in the saddle.
