Cute idea--Do you have a spouse who wants to spout off?

At least, I find this humorous.  I was known to drag my husband in and out of cemeteries and archives, on occasion.  Do you relate?  (No pun intended).

More often, I left him home to fend for himself and make dinner for the Kid.

  1. I just subscribed to your blog because Randy Seaver mentioned your post about FindAGrave today. Haven’t had a chance to read it yet because this one caught my eye. This is my long suffering husband and we had no idea that his column would get picked up by others! We were really pleased when NEHGS mentioned it in their newsletter.

    Keep up the good work, Mary Herzog

  2. Mary, thanks for your comment. I was just jumping on the bandwagon because my situation was similar. When visiting a small archives or an out of the way library, I would actually hand my husband a book, give him the list of names I was looking for, and ask him to write down the page number, so I could look it up, later. So thanks for sharing--you jump-started a lot of memories. Sorry that I'm so late in getting back to you!
