A trip through my world. Who I am, why I do genealogy, the places it takes me and the people I encounter along the way. Join me on my journey.

Not So Wordless Wednesday
This picture is of a letter my Grandmother wrote to my cousin Peggy. Peggy was going through a rough patch with her mother and they were not speaking. Peggy started writing to our Grandmother as a way to connect with family. She asked our Grandmother to tell her about her life. Grandma wrote many many pages...in broken English (French was her first language) telling about her courtship, her parents and so much more. Her strong, stubborn personality shines through. I am so grateful that my cousin asked Grandma for these letters...it is the only way I have been able to get to know her. We never met.
