The proofing processing is nearing its end. I had a very productive weekend, proofing and indexing the “Boys of Diamond Hill.” The manuscript is proofed and the index just has to be polished, alphabetized and formatted. It will then — next few days — be on its way back to McFarland where they will do their magic and finalize turning this process of transcribing and researching — from reading other books and source documents all the way up to crawling around in old cemeteries and tracing my fingers along the words and numbers of nearly indecipherable grave stones — into that few ounces of ink and paper called a book.
