I'm taking time checking out the site, thanks for leading me to it, you sounded so excited about your experience with this blogging. Your reading preference is exactly like mine. Genealogy and history, as well as small town writings.

I'm really impressed by the collection of Bonnie's letters. Have you told the Union County Historical Society about them?
