Actually, both articles are important to us. Talk about serendipity...
The National Archives removal of previously classified info hits us all
in one way or another. I needed some FBI files to learn the details
about a relative's arrest record. He was a counterfeiter. Nice work if
you can get it. Those files aren't available - classified. HUH????
He'd be 101 today. How could that influence national security?
We stirred up a hornet's nest when we paid for a genealogy search for
cause of death and date in the city where he last lived (not in the
US). The guy came back furious wanting to know why we wanted him to do
a de-facto homicide investigation. Oops! Looks like step-gramma maybe
did him in. We dropped it. Living with him was enough punishment.
Genealogy is NEVER boring. :o)
Good stuff Judy!
p.s. I hate eating in bed.
