I just wanted to add that, I asked last week about how to go about getting
naturalization records for my great-grandfather, etc. from my hometown
courthouse. The index is online on the county gen web site.
I was told I am welcome to come there and find them, and it is $1 to make
each copy. So, that will mean a trip there, rather than being able to ask
for a copy to be sent to me.
It isn't far, but I haven't been driving due to knee problems.
Just thought I would let you know that some places may not send out
naturalization records, like my home county. I'm sure that they are small
and don't have anyone to do that.

P.S. I like to work at home, too! I spent so many years in the classroom,
it's just so nice to be able to be at home during the day! I think I would
fall asleep if I had to sit in the library, reading in a quiet place all
day! It does sound nice, but I can see me, asleep on the table and having
to have someone wake me up when they close! Oh dear!
