I just realized that I forgot to title yesterday’s post. I guess it was better to do that than to forget to post. In fact there are days that I forget if I am coming or going.
Tonight we spent a bit of time going over family genealogy. Thanks to the efforts of Papa’s sister Vera and my own mother, it is pretty well mapped out for many generations. It is interesting to peruse the documents, seeing the years that each generation spanned, the names that were used and how many children were born.
However, I found it somewhat lacking in other types of information. Where did they live? When did they get married, what was their occupation? When did they arrive in the United States. Unfortunately, all I can do is ponder, because except for a few accounts, the information isn’t really there. Perhaps that is for this generation to discover.
