A mailbox full of history!

I came home from work to find a package in my mailbox with international markings on it. I had been expecting it - more records from the Quaker library in Dublin, from my research trip there last month. Just glancing at the first few pages is wonderful - nothing about my family in that short glance, but I already noticed that some of the letters are from the Women's Meeting in the 1730s. That's amazing because there are no known written records for the women from before the 1800s, but these had been copied into a book of miscellaneous records.

This will keep me busy for quite a while. Imagine the new discoveries!
