Do you ever feel like you are stuck with your research?
I have been feeling like there isn't anything new to discover.  Maybe it is just that so much of the information that I have has already been found for me and it isn't my discovery.
I crave something new.  Something exciting.
Seems funny to say that I want to find something exciting when it comes to family history.  that is what I am after.  I want to find an old treasure or find that will only be exciting to me and my family.
I even went to an antique store a few weeks ago in the town that my family is from.  I was searching for some tidbit of information that might have my family name on it.  A treasure, a picture, a trinket.  I would have settled for just about anything.  It didn't happen but it was an enjoyable hour or two.  It had been a long time since I had been to an antique shop.
How do we stay motivated?  How do we stay excited about the next find?  Have you ever found a great treasure in an antique shop?
