|My brother telling me to shut up|
It came to me over the weekend that I hadn't looked through the city directories at the library to try and find my parents. Plus, I would have all of our previous addresses. Why hadn't I thought of this before? Mom and Dad had a moving spree (mostly Dad wanting to move) early on in their marriage. One year, I found them in two city directories in different states. Several times they moved back and forth between Indiana and Tennessee.
My head was spinning just trying to find them in a directory somewhere. I still cannot find them from 1960-1963 and 1970-1971. I believe that they were living in a small city that may not have had a directory. I love the research, it is challenging, it is fulfilling...ah genealogy.
