I don’t know who still keeps up with this blog after the dearth of updates, but I felt I should explain myself.
First of all, I have been tired of the blog’s look for some time, and I finally found a theme I liked to replace the old one with. Second, I have returned to graduate school (Master’s in Instructional Technology) and become English Department Chair, both of which have left me with very little time to keep up with geneaology. It tends to be a summer pursuit. No wonder so many folks wait until they’re retired to take it up — the amount of time and research involved could occupy anyone full time, and I just can’t do that right now. However, I am still interested in it as a hobby and will continue to sporadically update this blog as I am able.
