Relatively Speaking is a throwback to another time in the world of genealogy. These are anecdotal stories to inspire those who search for their ancestors. Although, many of these stories are from before the world of computers and certainly the age of the internet, I believe that all of us have benefited from serendipity in our research.
The surnames of ancestors of my husband and self hold a strange fascination for me. Here is a story I wrote, using our surnames.
Here I am sitting on my HEINE in the BOESCHs, DODGEing STONES but otherwise having a BAST. I KNOX on WOOD, but I HOOKER all the BASS in the river, leaving nothing for ANDERSON and is his face REDD. BENSON is a great help to bait the line, but I may apply for a PATTON on my fishing technique. The REEDS are so thick along the bank you can??ª?t PITSCHMANN in even tho he PATTERSON and on, and you long to. It is a MINOR issue but I??ª?m not ABBOTT to clean the fish myself.
I think SIMPSON and REEVES will do that then HOLLOWAY a log and BAKER in it. The sus-SPENCE is killing me. The CHAMBERS of my stomach have CRUMPled up and I am starving. This is certainly a great catch. SEYMOUR fishing expeditions in the future.
