My book Of The Past and Present

I am reading a book but slowly. Been working for hours all this month getting all of the family branches and twigs on Ancestry. When I retired in 2005 this was to be my ambition and work in research and it has been a wild ride in to the past.
I have loved ever minute , the trips to many cemeteries the new people that helped me. Most of all I feel I know the history of where my family were going and how they got there and why I am here this day and time.
