NOTE: I go out Sunday mornings to take photos for you. :-)
Be sure to visit my precious Bucky. Her sister Lucy and I created a memorial for her. She is missed and loved daily. Update: On June 26, 2012 Lucy decided at 19.3 yo to join her sister. I'll be adding a memorial for her soon. My girls lived long, good lives and I was so blessed! You can visit Lucy now.
I've just started researching my family. At 46 yo I've been estranged from them since I was about 12 years old.
I have never known my biological mother's paternal side - so my research has been to find him. On June 14, 2011 2.43pm I finally did!
My mission? To find my paternal cousins that are living.
I'm engrossed and determined to learn all I can about the family I wish I would have known.
My research includes: Vess/Little, Little/Fields, Little/Broyles, Fields/Bareuls, Little/Kelly-Killey, Broyles/Calvert, Fields/Phelps, Little Carr, Killey/Hammer, Killey/Matherly, Hammer, Kaup, Phelps, Toms (tomes), Newby/Hunnicutt, Toms/Bogue, Hunnicutt/Wyke, Vess/Hyatt, Vess/Bellew (ballew), Hyatt/Nelson, Hyatt/Wikle,
Neslon/Colvard, Colvard/Holland, Hyatt/Parker, Hyatt/Gaither, Hyatt/Davis, Hyatt/Tewksbury, Hyatt/Preston, Hyatt/Russell, Hoyt-Hyatt/Stowers,
Hoyt/Bonin, Vess/Miller, Miller/Griffin, Griffin/Flannigan.
I know the feeling of seeing gravestones of family members. With just a few requests and having people claim and fulfill them - well words can't really describe the feeling. There's comfort in it for me as I'm sure there is and will be for you.
The joy brought to me by others' contributions - I hope I can pass that on to you.
