I am descended through the Presley/Pressley, Pope, Clontz, Rogers, Cook, Franklin, Henson, and other families who have been in Haywood County, NC for at least since the mid 1800's. I work full time, and genealogy is a favorite pastime of mine (although I enjoy it enough that I think IT could be my full time job!).
I carry a kit in my vehicle to carefully spruce up markers for taking pictures. It's just a small plastic box with a squirt bottle of water (and a 2 liter refill nearby I keep in the car), a dishwashing-type scrub brush, a somewhat larger scrub brush (both plastic bristles), some plastic paint scrapers, a small whisk broom, and some electronics duster (aka canned air, which my wife thinks I'm crazy for buying!) and some toothbrushes. Makes for much better pictures. I also carry some grass shears, but they won't fit in the kit.
