I realized that my move here to Orange County is the 9th move I have made since beginning genealogy. These moves spanned 33 years of on again, off again periods of genealogy research. There were boxes of genealogy I hadn't opened in the last couple of moves. It was like Christmas, as I found some items I didn't remember having or those I had forgotten about. I'm in the sorting stages still, and it will be a while before I am ready to begin to input these finds into my genealogy database. With as much information I have, it will most likely take at least a month to finish sorting everything and probably 4 to 6 months to input everything. I won't have to go anywhere for a long time to do research. The Family History Library in Salt Lake is in the process of indexing and scanning documents in their possession. I tried to scan as many of the microfilm records for my ancestors during the trips I made to Salt Lake. Now many of those documents have now been scanned by the Library. This is good, as my scans were not as good as their scans. They are much clearer and easier to read. Now I just have to get in the mood to work on my genealogy!
