When you're tired, not enough concentration for doing your own research as it does require a full head  ;D & rather than watch tv or read a book etc. you read through others threads on RC  ::), spot surnames in areas of your own interest, hope to find a link of some sort by chance i.e. still actually doing your own research inadvertently  ???

Never, I don't believe it  :o  8)

Not sure if I've said this before:

My friend in South Africa says that her husband states that "she is the only person he knows who gets her "jollies" from wandering through graveyards."  Ermmmmmm!!!!
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Watching NCIS and the main character is called Leroy Jethro Gibbs and when investigating, they find a Leroy Jethro Moore. Tony, one of Gibbs' aides says "Another Leroy Jethro. What are the odds" not knowing Gibbs was named after Moore. And watching the scene I think about my family tree and an reminded of a Jethro Wickham in my ancestor and the NCIS ep reminds me to explore that line.

When you are in a churchyard and someone walks over the grass and you want to shout "Hey, get off my ancestors!". Especially if they let the dog loose.
