Day 141

A short day. Not too interesting.
Web and catalog research for the KY State Library and Archives.
Phone calls to set up utilities and moving company for new home in Colorado Springs.
Long hours of microfilm peering at the Archives - small print, mediocre focus, bleery eyes.
End of day appointments and a salad for dinner.
More internet follow-up and phone calls this evening.
Tomorrow - more microfilm.

My microfilm work is focusing on early KY counties from which later counties were carved. So far, a bit on Richard Stephens but not much. Tomorrow I will finish Fayette County and then look through some of the 143 microfilm rolls that comprise the Draper Papers. These are notes, interviews, diaries and other information collected by Draper documenting the KY/VA frontier prior to 1830. I'll let you know what I find.
