Swimming in Comptons

I've been going thought the hundreds of pages of Orphans Court Minutes for Cumberland County, NJ. I'm around page 300 of 800 of Volume C (1842!).

Your patience is to be commended! If the chairs in our County Archives were a little more comfortable, I might do the same thing ~ or if my eyes could stand the miccrofilm maybe I could. I know the results far outweigh the discomfort!
I admire you!
