Motivation Monday - Under Construction

Before I dive into writing some of the stories in this month's writing reminders, I wanted to go back and do some general clean-up in my family tree. This was time well spent yesterday, as I caught errors and found some Civil War records on ancestors in the Vail line in Montgomery County, Indiana.

The photo above shows the Statue of Liberty under construction in Paris in 1883. This is from the New York Public Library's fantastic Digital Gallery (image permanent link: http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/id?1161050). The Library provides free & open access to over 800,000 images. See http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/index.cfm. I had originally intended to use a more generic "Under Construction" stock photo sign, but through the wonders of the Internet I stumbled onto old photos like the one above.

Back to tree pruning and cleaning.
