My Aunt Nadine was truly a special character that the good lord had blessed us with, and she was gone in just a twinkling of an eye. There were many times my aunt would wonder what may have happen to lost cousins, who our fore-fathers were and where we may have originated. She inspired in me the same wonderments and curiosity.
Throughout our Blansett branch, Levi Franklin, James Monroe Jr. & James Monroe Blansett Sr, we have lost so much of our family roots. So many of us don't realize who our grandparents were let alone our fore-fathers and cousins, for; whom many of them are in surrounding counties. Not all of this is due to a no care attitude, in fact many of us yearn to have some of this knowledge to past on to our own descendents. Much of our traditions and family history was lost or temporarily misplaced due to early deaths of parents, cousins moving away and not keeping in touch, The Depression, the lack of talking about our families with each other & many other things came into play.
World Family Tree Maker helped give me the tools and Aunt Nadine helped give me the inspiration to rediscover our family roots. Although this book has many incomplete passages it also has many new wonderful finds and I wanted to have a Blansett book formated for our eldest Blansett within our branch, which is Evelyn Huthens or as most know her as Tootie. This book will always be a work in progress and each updated version will always have a dedication to Aunt Nadine, because she helped encouraged me to pursue this adventure and to my regret did not live long enough to see this project take form.
Thank you Nadine for all your enthusiasm, that you gave me the foundation to get me started and for that I'm grateful!
Your loving niece Lynn
