Today I got to thinking about two of my main projects which seem to have fallen by the wayside, it has been a while since I actually did any serious work on either of them.
My work on Thomas KINGHORN (3x great grandfather) seems to have lost out to his more interesting father (the mail guard), and William Henry and Harriet MITCHELL have given way to finding Harriet’s parents (which is proving to be quite intriguing).
I guess it is natural to move on to something which seems more interesting, especially when many of my questions have already been answered. Also it is difficult to look at one family group without considering their parents (and children) as well.
I don’t think I will be stopping either project just yet, instead I think it is time to review what I have already achieved and start asking some new questions, looking for new avenues to explore and finding something equally interesting to draw me back in.
