Growing A Tree from the Branches of My Family
To understand where I'm going, I have to realize where I've been, and that
includes the many who came before me. These people have become very important
to me, as I hope they do to my children, and their children to come.
My love of genealogy began about 8 years ago with my mother. Her parents
were divorced when she was a small girl, and her father passed away not long
after. She basically knew nothing of the paternal side of her family, and
through her curiousity grew my labor, which has become a labor of love.
My family now includes many names who are no longer just "names" to
me, but people.....People who loved, labored and built lives for themselves
for the short time they were here. They are long gone, but they will never
be forgotten. They are My Family....
...My search continues.....
