-My Smiths: Oh boy, I am still fighting with my Smith’s but I’ve got a really good handle on them for now. It is awful to find a crap-load of Smiths in your tree, because about 40% of them are named John. Smiths definitely exercise my attention span. My Smiths marry into the Ryall family for 1 generation. Then they marry into the Wilsons and then the Luck family. A superstar football player descends from my Smith grandmother. Revisit: Ryalls, did that name evolve from Royal? Some people claim it did. And are they my ticket into an Irish castle on a hill somewhere?
I have moved these people to the very bottom of my to-do list. They are unruly, particularly for dead people. And they are evasive. And they impersonate each other. Frankly, I don’t have time for this nonsense.
PS. I will probably change my mind and grovel back with my shovel in a couple months. I may come back with an exorcist & a psychic from Hollywood.
