My father, Edwin James Wright, died Jan.25, 1965 in Santa Paula, California. I had no interest in genealogy until years later I discovered some old business papers under his letter head on which he had started our family tree. Among the many notes and small charts was the sentence "Edwin, I don't think Paulina Wright could have been married to John Smith ?? because they were from different meetings. (check wording and names). This arroused my interest which led to "The Search" which,like ants, leads one on and on down the family path. I am not nearly to the end but the picture is takeing shape and with the help of the computer, on line friends, Church of The Latter Day Saints, and Family Tree Maker. The task is intriging and enjoyable with a few humbling errors which accentuate the gems that are found.
