DAYS GONE BY...

OUR FAMILY GENEALOGY

Oh for the days gone by and the family gatherings once held on the farm. I can hear their voices as if those yesterdays were here once again...

I'm a genealogy addict; I admit it. I can blame Dad for this. It started when I was 13 yrs. old. He is the one responsible for taking me to cemeteries when no one else would go (again) with him! He told me who was who and how they were related. Hardly any of this had been written down. It was all in his head for the most part. I began putting it to paper and have been doing this ever since those early days. When a "brick wall" comes tumbling down, it only raises more questions for the next generation back. Who were they? And on and on...

So, Welcome to my part of the world and if we connect, let me know.
