Much of what I have for my mother's side comes from type written records that my Aunt Edith wrote. I am not sure of the date that she did them, but I believe it would have been around 1960 or there about. I imagine she had kept a "birthday" book of important dates. Her youngest sister, my mother, did and I have it now. It is better than a family bible for entries!
Some of my father's side information came from him, either written or verbal. Much more came from my cousin Grace, who had started looking into our family genealogy long before I did.
In addition to this line I am also researching the lines of my 3 husbands. 2 for my daughters and the last is for my present husband of many years. And if that is not enough, I am also researching both lines for 1 friend and 1 line for 2 others. I am not a professional, but I do hope to be Certifiable...I mean, Certified, one of these days.
I will strive to keep this site updated and I plan to add a good bit to it in the stories section, etc.
