There usually isn't much sentimental about a day at the library, especially since the day was yesterday, but it will be before long. A day filled with seeing Eric and Henry, Gary B. Roberts, Laura Lee K., helping a genea-blogger, mention of Kathryn Doyle and a crazed man who tried to stop the train I was on.
I went to the New England Historic Genealogical Library (NEHGS), in Boston, yesterday, because I received a letter earlier this week from Laura Lee K. of California stating, "In Boston at NEHGS, researching James Lowrey. Happened to find your rootsweb genealogy, just after finding John and Elidia in the Barbour VR. Have been reresearching your entries." We corresponded and I knew I just had to meet her.
Upon arriving and the elevator door at NEHGS, out came Eric and Henry (Eric is the director of the DAR Library in Washington, D.C. and Henry is the editor of the NEHGS Register). They were leaving to catch a plane, so no time for hugs or chatting (Eric and I have known each other for over 20 years). Next person I saw was well-known genealogist Gary Boyd Roberts, he was very happy and excited to be going to the FGS conference in Knoxville next week. I hadn't seen his name as a speaker, so I asked if he was talking, and he said, "no" and that he hadn't been there in a very long time. So, some of you may see him. (I am privy as to why he is there, and will keep it that way, but you can ask him.)
