Follow-up on the trip to Georgia

Well, Cousin Don and I made it back from Georgia safe and sound. Two days at the Georgia State Archives in Morrow were followed by a stay with Cousins Bobby Gene and Vivian Pennington who live just south of Macon. Macon's public library has an outstanding genealogy and archives section, and Don and I made good use of it while we were staying at the lovely Pennington home. Bobby, Vivian and Kyra were wonderful hosts who spoiled us tremendously - thank you so much for inviting us into your home.

After the days spent at the Georgia Archives and at Macon's genealogy library, you would think we had gathered enough information to do us for a while. You would be wrong. On our way back home, we stopped at the library in Anniston, Alabama in Calhoun County where some of the Dulaneys lived, then at the Birmingham Public Library for a few hours before finally turning the car toward Mississippi late Tuesday afternoon.

Don't know about Cousin Don, but I've been plumb tuckered out since getting back home. In addition to getting caught up with house and yard work, I've been sorting through the information we collected, trying to get it organized before starting the analytical process. We got some great stuff for the book on the Dulaney family, but there is still a lot of work to be done if we hope to find out the parents of Daniel Dulaney of Pendleton District, South Carolina. Thankfully, we picked up some new leads to follow, and Cousin Bobby Gene said to come back any time!
