While in Washington DC one of our stops was the Library of Congress. This is a stunningly beautiful building!

I recently discovered that my ancestor South G. Preston, who was a lawyer and a Methodist minister, authored several books, three of which are in the Library of Congress!  One (The Shadow of the King) was off site and I was unable to see it, but two others, Key-Words and Phrases of the New Testament, and The Secret of Hamlet, were there and I was able to photocopy his picture and bio from the books - a very exciting find for this budding genealogist!
