I worshipped dead men for their strength,
Forgetting I was strong.
- Vita Sackville-West.

This journal covers the historical discoveries of velvetink - they may or may not be of interest to anyone else.

I will be posting in here sporadically, when I have time about historical things I dredge up from my scryings and scratchings into the realm of geneology. Specifically my ancestors, but sometimes just about interesting old things I find along the way.

(I don't expect many people will be interested in this lj, it's just my nerdy thing, you can add me if you like).
