Merry Blogmas Day 23 Genealogy Done!

It was another very long day of sorting and uploading genealogy documents but I am finally done!  That was the one big project I wanted to finish before the end of the year and now it feels like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  Now all of the documents that have been on my computer for years are out in a public space where other people can see them and use them for their own research.

The photo above is of my great great grandparents on their wedding day in 1898.  This was a sad story because she died in 1905 from tuberculosis and a month later their first child died at the age of six years old from the same disease.  A year and a half later he married again and they were married until he died at the age of 96 years old.  I love history and family history is even more fascinating!


  1. I went to that site and love it. It is sort of confusing at first. I found out that my paternal grandmother died with cancer at the head of the pancreas, the same thing that killed my father. My doctor told me that I probably would get it since I take after father's side of the family. But, that I led a cleaner life, so I would probably get it 20 years later than they did. Boy, is that a good reason to lead a clean life! She was in her 80s and Daddy was in his late 70s, so I am taking care of myself better. Living longer is a good reason to study one's genealogy.

    1. I'm glad you like the site--it's pretty fascinating when you dive into family history. I am glad you are being proactive about your health and with good reason!
