You are so right! I sometimes feel torn between wanting to find the next piece in the puzzle and writing down what I have while it is fresh in my mind (all while trying to juggle the rest of my life). I need to strive to get more "on paper" because what good is a great story about an ancestor if it stays all in my head. And, of course, writing it down forces me to examine everything more carefully. Thank you also for your book suggestions. Only a Few Bones sounds intriguing.
