I feel like I need to apologize to those of you who have been waiting for research/genealogy information from me. I have been running around like a crazy woman since school started and I have not been to the library very much. I only have 40 minutes after school before the library closes, so even on a good day there isn’t time to do as much as I’d like. So if you are waiting for me I am sorry that I am a bit behind. And I do NOT mind getting a reminder about what you need. Sometimes my list gets long and items get overlooked. Just email me if you are still waiting for a specific date or name. And I still have time to check my files at home. I now have about 4,000 items about Caddo.
