I was bitten by the genealogy bug about 12 years ago when one of my daughters was taking a sociology class that included a project of tracing the students' families back to the point of immigration. She asked what we had and, when I brought out the files my grandmother had given me (and I had put away and forgotten about), she asked if I would help her put the information in the Family Tree Maker software that she had purchased. I agreed and have been involved in researching the family ever since. I truly appreciate my grandmother's efforts in documenting various family lines and hope to be able to pass on the same kind of information to future generations. The hardships that people have survived are awe inspiring.
The goals of Find-a-Grave appeal to me. I have already benefited from the work of others and am committed to providing assistance where I can.
Please feel free to use any photos that I add for your own family files.
Donavan I do have more information on the Donavan family. If you would like to give me your email, I will be glad to send it to you. I have an undated obit for him that I had found at the local library, and it states he died Dec. 5 in Geneva, Switzerland . A handwritten date on the obit was 1977. Eileen B.
