Happy Birthday Grammy!

Today would have been my grandmother’s 99th birthday!  Grammy died this past summer (July 17th).  A few months ago I wrote a memorial blog to her.  In this blog I said that I would have my ancestry project completed by today as a tribute to her.

Well it’s today, and the project is NOT complete, though I have worked on it quite a bit.  I plan to spend some time on it today.  In going through my notes I discovered several handwritten documents that I will also scan to preserve.  If I had to guess I’d say I have about 3/4 of the project finished.  Today I’d like to get what isn’t entered to the Ancestry.com database entered so that I can see where I need to do further research.

Every year Grammy would send flowers to the church to be displayed during the service in my grandfather’s honor (his birthday was yesterday).  This year my family sent flowers in both of their honor.  The picture at the top of this post is a picture of the flowers.  Yellow, Grammy’s favorite!

    they are really lovely flowers.

    I really want to talk to you more about your ancestory project.. I am very interested in how it’s different to doing it for the UK etc. I will email you when I get a chance 😀
