Bio Photo Am I Really Me?

I started out calmly, tracing my tree,
To find, if I could, the makings of me.
And all that I had was Great-grandfather's name,
Not knowing his wife's nor from whence they both came.

I chased him across a long line of states,
And came up with pages and pages of dates.
When all put together, it made me forlorn,
Proved poor Great-grandpa had never been born.

One day I was sure the truth I had found,
Determined to turn this whole thing upside down.
I looked up the record of one Uncle John,
Then found the old man was younger than his son.

But then when my hopes were growing quite dim,
I came across records that must have been him.
The facts I collected - they made me quite sad,
Dear old Great-grandfather was never a Dad.

I think someone surely is pulling my leg,
I'm not at all sure I'm not hatched from an egg.
After hundreds of dollars I've spent on my tree,
I can't help but wonder if I'm really me.

Hi, My name is Debra
Raised in small town in North Louisiana, Live in small town in East Texas.
I started searching for my Dad's family on and from there connected with This is were I found my grandmother (which I never met) where she was buried. My Dad never spoke much about his family. His mother died when he was very young. So I had little information to start with. Since then I have connected with a cousin and half Uncles that has giving me a little more information that has my tree growing. "Slowly" but growing. I made the decision to join findagrave as a volunteer to help others to find and see where there ancestor's are buried and contribute to adding memorials to this site. This is an "Awesome!" site to come to. I get such joy and a great connection when I visit my families memorial page. I love walking the cemeteries. It's like stepping into a different world, It gives me a sense of Peace.
So I continue my search of the Nelson's and hope to be of some help to others searching for their families. Shoot me an e-mail or leave me a message if I can help you in anyway I will do my best. Take care of each other and keep our loves ones that has passed on in memory forever...
Sincerely, grateful

My father passed recently. Inside a brief case I found a large amount of pictures that must have been from my grandparents. Amoung them is one that on back says" Mary Ruth Edwards and brother" another that says "Mary Ruth Edwards mother's sister and son-Myrtle". I have spent 3 hours so far just sorting them and trying to identify the ones I can. Will share as soon as I get time to scan.
