One dead end after another…

After my failed trip to the town, I was really discouraged. I found out enough information to keep me going, but nothing really substantial. I have not gotten any closer to figuring out a name, and my trips to the library that last four hours at a time to look through the microfilm (I’m convinced I’m causing permanent damage to my eyes), have yielded absolutely no results. I was almost giving up all hope, when I suddenly got this idea. It’s a bit of a stretch and is probably a last call operation, but I decided to make a flier to hang around the town and surrounding areas to see if anyone can give me anymore information about this mysterious pirate. I might hand some around in the local shops.

Since I’ve been unable to find any newspaper articles up here, I am going to spend the whole in the local historical society to see if I dig anything up.

If I can’t find any substantial evidence soon, then I might to completely change my topic. I definitely think I am going to change my topic, well not completely, but my paper will be a lot less interesting.

Here’s a copy of the flier I created:

    I feel your pain, I have been turning corner after corner, and I just can’t seem to get there either. But I know things will turn up so just keep researching!

    I, too, have had trouble finding solid leads, but I, too, have faith that history will not disappoint us with a lack of what is both available AND interesting. Just keep spiraling out. :)
