I am retired and live in California. I lost my dear husband several years ago and often travel around to visit other members of my family. I love genealogy and find it fascinating especially after days, sometimes months of research it brings me closer to an elusive family member. It brings me joy to find them regardless of how many times removed I am. It seems fitting that the final tribute to my bloodline should rest here and may help others find them and pay tribute to them. Often they had a hard life and fought and endured many harsh elements and now their story lives on within these hallowed borders of the World Wide Web.
