Tributes to wonderful people




Who do you know that is or was an important person to you? I have family and old friends that I certainly remember fondly. Last week I got in touch with a woman in California who is something around my 4th cousin. I posted a picture on Ancestry.com and her mom was able to identify all the people in the picture, tell me where it was taken, and that it represented my great grandmother and a total of 5 generations of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even a great-great-grandchild. It was just wonderful!

I have been working on some additional heritage LO. I have been working on preserving photographs and putting copies on layouts. What a joy to look at "where I am from".
