Trawling through 19th century censuses and other vital records gets fun at times, in an "argh, why does this person have five birthdates spanning twelve years" kind of way.

Also, I kinda love the combination of flawlessly elegant penmanship and a grip on spelling and arithmetic that can best be described as "teflon."

(Seriously, dude - spelling a town name three different ways on the same marriage license? That probably took you more effort than getting it consistently would have...)
