All the ones that held the knowledge of who's who and how to sort it all out have long since passed.If only we had the forsight to realize that down the road we would be asking " where was gramma born,where did she go to school,what was grammas mothers name,who was my great great great grampa?" All those questions left unasked or I should say,that they were asked but either we were to young to remember or we're to old now that we forgot.
In the process of searching the family tree I've found new cousins out there. People I didn't even know existed.I'm sure they were just as shocked as I to find out there was more family.That's something that I'll be able to pass on to my daughter and grandchildren ,more family.
If I've learned anything from all this searching,I'll be sure to label all my photographs with names,dates and places.Hopefully anything that I pass on to my family will now have a little bit of imformation telling them where it came from,who it belonged to before me and how long I've had it.I'm sure future generations will be asking the same questions about us when they see our pictures.Maybe it'll be easier for them having everything labeled already,I couldn't say but hopefully it'll be all done for them.
As you look through my family pages ,I might have forgotten that all important fact about someone.It's not intentional and if you like,you can e-mail me with what ever you feel should be added to make this family tree more complete.
