This week I’ve been trying to gather more pictures. I love the Genealogy Photo-A-Day challenge (shout out to Genealogy Girl Talks!) and I try my best to cover all sides, and lines, of my family. I’m always looking for that one picture that will hopefully spark a family history conversation.
As I was looking and searching for pictures, I found myself on the edge of a rabbit hole. You know what I mean….when you’re trying to focus on one research item and then find something that takes you off on a whole other tangent. That’s what happened with me and the Callaghan family.
I found the Callaghan family when researching my paternal Hanna line. My 6th great aunt, Martha Hanna, married a man named William O. H. Callaghan. I have done some research on them, but basically just names, dates, and locations. I found a picture of one of their daughters, Jane, and the fall into the rabbit hole began. I found more pictures and more stories than I knew what to do with! I’m so excited to share these with you down the road.
I would love to say that I’m sitting here, watching the Kentucky basketball game and no longer living in the rabbit hole, but that would be a lie. I’m really enjoying getting to know my Callaghan family!
What are you working on this weekend?
