Question: I'm new to geneaology...how does one find out how long a relative -- in this case, my great-grandfather -- lived in the area?
and for those taking a break from research, I submit the following....
We sift the streambed's squishy
acres, absorbing what is
sometimes known, what's guessed
at; what lingers in a long refrain;
what sings our story:
the sum of our remembered past;
notes of our futility; talk
in rich, reductive measures. What's
not resisted pushes down. We
live as ably as we can, too many
cures are badly counted.
Worlds dismissed are restless tomes,
fumes we dance a lung across.
