“Haste makes waste”

That’s the title of the story I wrote a couple of years ago and it appears in the current issue of Mennonite Family History. (Two years ago because photos are posted with the story and 09/20/2017 is the date on the pictures.) Here is a link to the blog message I published in 2017 but “cousin Lois” edited and published an abbreviated version. I suspect the publishers of Mennonite Family History (“cousins”) read my blog and selectively choose something to “fill in” space in the periodical. That’s OK; I’m just pleased they want to use my writings.

I doubt the next picture will appear in print. I’m quite possibly the only person interested in the appearance of family history in an Ancestry Member Family Tree. I’ve complained (vociferously?) about the errors in Ancestry “member”  databases. I’m attempting to have the “Frantz family” (and all the collateral lines) accurately “sourced” and neatly documented. (This is my contribution to the world. Some people make quilts; some people paint pictures; some people leave an indelible mark in history. This [genealogy] salves the pain I feel because I can’t lavish love on children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.)

Tonight, at the Clubhouse, we have the opportunity to see the movie “Pay it Forward”  again. Here are several earlier references to the movie, and to the concept: One of four; two of four; three of four; four of four.

I’ll be at the Clubhouse; I’ll tear myself away from the computer for a couple of hours.
