Amen to everything you wrote, Diane Jacobs! I found my grandfather's birth registry and told my mom his real name. Likewise, corrected and corroborated some stories with documents. Learned a lot of history about the time period, including fascinating information gleaned from death registries and wedding announcements. Scrolling through thousands of beautifully scripted names and places has been meditative, while acknowledging and respecting these dead souls of our ancestors.
