We drove to the Greenbelt, and boarded the Transit, which delivered us to the Archives Building, first pictue. We went through their orientation, received photo ID's, ordered our records, then went for lunch. (2nd picture) As, we were finishing up, I caught Daryl at the desk, looking over her ancestor's original paperwork. We met Bruce Frail, of the SUV National, a few minutes later, at the same desk, quite by luck. I was too stunned to think about a photo!
