My personal challenge is that I'm paralyzed on the left side, from a brain hemorrhage stroke. Before December 29, 2004, I taught in an elementary school, wrote fiction, attended college, and looked forward to family time. But I've adapted, my brain may have lost cells, but I learned how to survive. I type with one hand, pretty fast! In 2007, I began my paternal Taylor genealogy. And it was a challenge.
Two men named Henry Taylor, born in July, 1787. Both married Ruth H(o/e)dge - BUT beware of "shaky leaves"! One has a father who is a Revolutionary Pensioner. One is my ancestor, lived and died in Auglaize, Ohio.
I made the error - but quickly fixed it. Turned out, the OTHER Henry Taylor's descendant lived less than 5 miles from me. Being wheelchair and homebound, no longer able to drive, I never met her, but she sent me Christmas cards for years. :)
