As I look up from my desk I see our family pictures and heirlooms looking back at me. It is for them that I pursue my research and delve into the past. Whatever lies hidden in an archive on microfilm, tucked away in a dusty box up in an attic or on a weather worn stone hidden in a cemetery. These treasures drive me to fill in the blanks of my tree, our family tree. I want to find out the truths, the unknown, the mystery of where our people came from, how they got here and how they lived. How are we to know where we are going if we don't know where we came from? For my two young beloved daughters, this is your history.
I don't check my email every day… so if you have sent a request don't fret - I'll get to it soon.
Van Tran Cemetery Geri, Could you provide directions to the Van Tran Cemetery on Thunder Hill from Grahamsville? Is this the same cemetery that Phineas Booth was buried in, is is he in another? I think that Neal Benson and Mary Hall are also buried there. Thanks for your help. Ken Booth
Hodge Family Greetings! I would like to know if you are related to the Hodge family buried in Hodge Family Cemetery in Sullivan County, NY. If you are not, would you be kind enough to transfer the whole lot of them to me? Abel and Submit are my maternal 5th great-grandparents. If you are related, please contact me. Would like to collaborate on family history. Thanks! Debbie Miller-Lewis
