  1. Becky, I have enjoyed following your Rupert and Switzer articles. What a tangled web we must always be trying to untangle! Sounds as if you are having a productive summer of research though. Even though I don't often comment, just wanted you to know I'm following along. Been busy here in Nebraska but not doing a whole lot with my genealogy till fall. Catching up on lots of other things that have gone by the way side the last 3 years. I'm anxious to get back to it soon. Be careful on the road!
