Thanks for stopping by. This is a fairly new adventure for me so forgive me if this is not perfect. Join me on my journey in finding out more about my "Genes". Feel free to stop by anytime. I tend to work on other things from time to time so unfortunately, sometimes there are no recent posts. Come back though.
Fairview, Oregon, United States
Born in Iowa, but living in Oregon. Love genealogy and all the joys that go along with it.
I am a grandmother of two, have a husband of 35 years, two wonderful sons and a beautiful daughter in law.
Life is one blessing after another.
Every time something new pops up, or I find a picture never before seen or even a recipe it is a thrill! Since I still consider myself new at genealogy this is something I will continue to enjoy for the rest of my life. I have not given up yet! Meeting new cousins is a thrill too.
How many times were the words "We're getting married on August 31!" happen in the family? This is pretty cool if you think about it. There are several weddings in the family all on August 31st! Being that today is August 31st - I thought this the perfect time to share this. We had always known about my sister, parents and grandparents, but what a shock to find even another August 31st wedding in the family! Enjoy!
