I think of so many things I want to post, but alas, I don't get around to posting them.
Maybe after I finish the family forest I can get back to posting here. Yes, I am now calling it a forest. It is no longer just a family tree. But, I am having so much fun doing this project I've wanted to do for 30 years. The neatest thing I found so far is that I have double gggg grandparents for both lines lead to my family on my father's side and my mother's side by 2 of their daughters. Their other sister, also leads back to my family in another direction. Actually, another generation back, the line leads down to my step-father's side, also. :) And I say all this with a BIG IF. IF I am doing all this correctly, ... so it will be a while before I research it all enough to know all these things for sure.
