meant what they said, said what they meant

another Rogers tidbit… the hits just keep on comin’…

I noted this several years ago.. but in my naivete… failed to recognize how important it is to ROGERS folks. I mention this because I often say “I am neutral” or “I don’t have a dog in this fight”… my gist is that my REAL object of my research is to find out MY ancestors… not YOURS. If I have to read about your folks I will either fall asleep from boredom or commit suicide. C’mon… do you really care about my grandmother?

So… now that we understand each other… Now that I have become an “industrial” mapper of deeds for long dead people. (how’s that for a job resume?)

I have found that there is an extraordinary amount of “undiscovered info” in deeds. Everybody playing this game looks to map the “Where” the hell did they live? I, on the other hand, have reached a threshold of newfound knowledge whereupon I felt myself compelled to write this Post. Most folks find themselves empowered with knowledge when they find the next door neighbors of their ancestor… Wow! I’ll just study these folks for some dirt…er…facts about their relationship with MY guys.

My maps show the folks down the road… you get the “big” picture.

You may find yourself thinking that “I am looking for that low down SOB what knocked up my Granny.” Hey, its what I do for a pastime… you do your thing. That is how deep in the woods, surrounded by weeds, impressed with “industrial mapping” I really am. I think I can actually find that snake in the grass… (unless he tragically died young from a heart attack before he could marry my poor beleaguered Granny) in which case, he may have been OK. Which, realistically, is my way of doing crossword puzzles. If you catch my drift…

This is an example of whereof I speak…

Google “rogers nansemond”

No one has a clue about this little factoid…

an aside…

This is an example of what I call a “data sheet”… it is the Who, What, Where, When… school of reading chrystal balls…

This is also a “Jesus Christ!… that dude was stoned out of his mind” post. I only use it in moderation as Aristotle was fond of reminding us… another drift to be caught.
