I am not sure how many of you are familiar with the book that Richey Liming of Brown Co., Ohio compiled.It deals basically with the descendants of Henry Liming and the Brown County Limings.This was an heroic effort on Richey's part.The book is over 350 pages long andis comprised of family group sheets, photographs, biographies, and documents.It is in itself a piece of Lyming history.Sadly, soon after completion Richey passed away
Since the books are no longer available, Lee Liming, Neal Liming, Gary Liming, Dallas Riedesel, Ruth Hall and Lois (me) are contemplating updating Richey's book and expanding it within the first 6 generations from John and Prudence Lyming. We hope to include other branches of the family beyond six generations.
In order to do this, we need family group sheets, pictures, documents, anything that would pertain to the first six generations of John and Prudence's descendants.Not to be left out or forgotten by future Lymings, those of us of the current generations can also choose to appear in this history.There is a planned section of descendant outlines for generations seven through twelve that would also include non-linked Lymings.This idea is not completely "baked" because we don't yet know how many are interested in participating and contributing their family histories.But once fully cooked it promises to be monumental.
Now here's the best part.Lee, Neal, Gary, Dallas, Ruth and I are willing to do the work of collecting, editing, designing, printing and any other necessary job, no matter how nasty.After all, someone has to do it.But…if you would like your branch of the family tree to be a part of this vast project, please contact me before July 31, 2001.You don't have to have any trees ready at that time.We just need to see how much interest there is in the project.Oh, lest I forget, if by any chance anyone would like to be part of the planning committee, we would welcome the manpower.But no one can have my job, I don't know what it is yet, but if you want it you will have to fight for it.
