Randy at Genea-Musings seems to think that I have nothing better to do on a Saturday night than play a genealogy game he’s started.

Sadly… he’s right.

Here’s the rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note to your blog (or a comment to this blog).

Here’s mine:

Another case contained a lock of Jeff Davis’s hair and splinters of wood from the tree under which he was arrested by Union troops in 1865.

Horwitz, Tony, Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War, Vintage Departures, New York, 1999, p. 56.

This book has been on my nightstand for months, and my progress is slow. I hope to finish it someday.

Now… it’s your turn. Unless you’re actually out having a life on a Saturday night.
