Have you ever had a strange dream, awakened, then tried to get back to sleep so you could finish the dream? I did… and I couldn’t. And all I could remember was that I lost my shoes, had forgotten the roses, and had to pick up the cake… and there were this troupe of pear-shaped cloggers scheduled to perform. And what this has to do with genealogy or the search for my ggg-grandfather James Smith, hell if I know… But it certainly was some strange dream.
And I continue with my Transcription Project, searching for the hint or clue that could lead me to a shred of evidence to the ancestry and genealogy of ggg-grandfather James.
Here are the two Pages, 32 and 33, as downloaded from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL .
And my transcription -
ExaminedSchedule B begins of Page 34 and I believes runs through Page 72. I will be transcribing 38 new pages… and searching.
