So I've had nearly a week to absorb what I've learned about grandfather
Edward F. White Sr. and his second family. I tried Googling the various
community organizations he was a member of but only two have websites
and neither had photographs or information covering the period that was
connected with them. I haven't had any luck finding anything about my
two new uncles online, either. 

I think I want to see if I can view the case files for my grandparents'
divorce before I contact my new-found relatives. So a trip to the
Suffolk County Courthouse will be my next move. That won't be for at
least three weeks, though, for two reasons.

The first is that I only have Thursdays and Sundays off from work,
and obviously that means that there is really only one day a week
available for me to get into Boston.

The second is that the bookstore I work at is being closed as part of the
Borders reorganization and we're in the midst of a liquidation sale that is
mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting. Honestly, I need to
deal with that first.The upside of it is that in a few weeks I'm going to have
plenty of time on my hands that I need to fill and following up on all this
then seems more logical to me at the moment.

So, that's what I've decided to do, so in a few weeks, I'll be back at it!

Just think, Bill... Spring in New England and you will be FREE to travel to archives, courthouses, cemeteries, and beyond! You've earned this, and I anxiously await the stories that you will write!
