Family Research News for 22 Aug 2010


I got to visit with a cousin of mine in Ohio this month whom I had never met.  In addition to sharing photographs, documents, and family heirlooms she delighted us with stories about the family.  We also visited several cemeteries to pay our respects. There wasn't enough time so we're planning to return next year.
