What's in your family tree?
If you've been here before, you will know I've been researching my family history. So far, it had been a fascinating, but fairly routine journey. Until this week. I won't go into specifics on all I've uncovered, but it's more or less what I'd hoped to find. A diverse family, with some secrets, Union soldiers and Confederates, blended families, and sad, tiny gravestones of children who didn't stay in this world very long. I have always loved a good mystery, and this is what the search for ancestors is like. There are twists and turns, with some predictable outcomes, but happily for me a few unexpected surprises. You should definitely give it a try!
