Getting sidetracked is easy to do :)

Our local, very good, genealogy group meets on Friday mornings. I am the baby (age-wise) of the group and have a really good time interacting with everyone.
Today we had a visitor who told us about growing up in Nashville from the 1920's thru the 40's. All very interesting stuff. While I was listening to him it struck me that some of what he was relating was not to far different to what I experienced growing up in Scotland.
He brought a friend who it turned out used to live a few houses down from where we are currently located. She shared some interesting info about the history of our sub division so I am going to side track myself for a while and go find out more. Some of her "then" neighbors are some of my "now" neighbors :)

  1. I love this sort of thing. Part of my interest relates to who lived where and when. A lot of the places that my ancestors lived in are pretty much within throwing distance of where my parents still live and you can still see the exact houses. It fascinates me.


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I will try to respond off-blog to those who leave some way of contacting them.
Enjoy your day.
