Pushing up daisies !!

Pushing up daisiesWell, not yet!!

However, while “climbing the family tree,” I’m saddened to see how many “cousins” did not live to be my age (eighty).

On the positive side, my memory has been remarkable!! It has been many years since I communicated with various family members–or worked with their data in a genealogy software program. But memories flood back. Those memories–gratefully–help me evaluate Ancestry records and recognize that some data is just plain wrong.  Well, Ancestry’s data may not be wrong but  wrong data is attached to family members. I’ve actually spent hours trying to trace, and attach, accurate information and hope that my research will be honored versus oft-repeated errors. It’s an interesting challenge!! And, along the way, I meet new cousins. (Hello Leland.)
