About Our Family Research


My maternal grandmother was a member of the DAR and of course did lots of research on her side of the family, COOK, HENDRICKS, and her husband's side, KIMBROUGH, SIMPSON. When she died in 1984, my mother gave me all her research papers. Wow! I have letters that she had written requesting information which were dated in the 1940's and 1950's. And all her notes are just wonderful, of course, being in her own handwriting, I will treasure them always. I diligently started my own research, spending hours at the public library downtown. My housework suffered greatly! One of my joys is that all the wonderful new "Cousins" that I've discovered via the Internet over the years. Another joy is that my oldest son is also interested in the family history, so all my research and my grandmother's will be passed on to him. Not anytime soon, I hope.
