My recommendations this week. As usual, I normally pick one or two good posts from my week's readings, or left from the prior week! Hope they are useful or at least interesting to you, as well! If it is your first visit, even better! ;-)
I've been off in Texas all week with my grandkids, taking them to school every day and picking them up while daughter recovered from a sprained ankle - she's doing fine!
When I got back, I had received a great packet of information - military and pension files on my 2nd great grandfather, Michael Smith, a Civil War veteran - 65 some pages. So happy to get it, many hours of reading, writing translation/transcription actually, and story writing ahead!
So, a big shout out to the National Archives for their online "National Archives Order for Copies of Federal Pension or Bounty Land Warrant Applications at: eservices.archives.gov/orderonline for a fine job done for me, again! Hope you have good luck, as well!
Families are Forever! ;-)
