This blog is read all over the world, literally. Sometimes people come upon it accidentally while they're looking for something else, but there is a corps of loyal and constant readers. [Thank you!] And I'm always happy to welcome new or occasional readers.
I was rather surprised, however, when recently someone from the United States Department of Justice and the Washington, DC area, spent a full 20 minutes combing through the various posts in the blog. Note that this was on a government computer on government time. Now I don't mean to alienate any genealogy fan, but come on now: 20 minutes at work? At the Department of Justice? Either someone doesn't have enough work to do or I'm under investigation! Was my visitor Big Brother or kindly old Uncle Sam?
