Working on the Chaffin family today.  Brian's Great Aunt is found in the 1920 Census living with a border, 25 year old Norman Bousha. Ten years later, in the 1930 she is married to Normal Bousha who has now aged severeal years. :)

I am continuing to work on updating my database and my tree on Ancestry. At the same time I am updating my "notebooks." Over the weekend, Brian and I purchased two 3 inch binders -- one pink and one blue -- for about half price at Walmart. I plan to do our direct ancestors in those books as the notebooks I currently have that information have seen their better days.

We have been very busy with the holidays and it has been a very long time since I blogged. I am continuing to work on redoing and sourcing my database and my notebooks. I am working on the Omvig ancestors book. Last up is the Chaffin/Stinehart books. I have three large piles of "things" I have collected to put in with my documentation. I have been trying to scan and attach documents that I have in my possession. I have a feeling that by the time I get done with this round and get everything scanned and filed, it will be time to start over. I have continued to work on my history, but haven't made time to blog. Will try to do better now that the holidays are over with, however, we are now in tax time!
