Bio and Links
Bio Photo I had no concept of what genealogy was when I set out to disprove my great uncle's claim to be related to Sam Houston in a 1916 Hynds Family History. By the time I proved his claim, I was hooked. I have experienced goose bumps as I stood in the Courthouse as I held the first marriage book of Grayson County, Texas in which my great-great grandparents marriage was recorded. I shook the hand of the hall skeleton. I have walked the land and stood beside the graves of my ancestors and felt their presents. Researching my family has been the best thing I have done for myself. There is a sense of pride in knowing the life each of my ancestors lived. Had they not lived the life they lived, I would have not been born.

Gone But Not Forgotten
picture for a relative
Will you please add your picture to a duplicate memorial for my relative? I have contacted both of the creators and do not know which will be deleted, but I don't want to lose the picture. The memorial with your picture is Ellen Hynds Vincent # 65525775 and the one without the picture is #92408404.
Thank you for your help, Jackie - Gone But Not Forgotten (#46915173)
