1. I am researching genealogy of all families that have united with my own through marriage. Some of the information will be used as data in a written narrative about one or two family members who were just "special" to me. This is a meaningful project for myself and I hope it will be an interesting one to pass on to future generations.
2. I am personally doing the research since I am the last person left who knew people in all generations since the first one to come to America. I am therefore also the only one who can identify people in over a hundred photographs that will be passed on to my children.
