Another reason to start this blog is to share stories of our families, present and deceased. Last night for FHE we logged into the church history section of lds.org. Go to the youth page, click on family history, and waaalaahh! You can create a genealogy fan for the members of your family. It is pretty cool. There are also some great names to be found. A few of my personal favorites; Zebiah Razee, Isriel Wickam Morrison(hopefully his character was much better than Jane Austen's wickam!), Pleasant Basham, Mahala Buckeleu, and my personal favorite, Jimima Holdaway! I am curious to know some of their stories. I wonder what records are out there. Mom? Do you know? Also, we should recognize mom's efforts on behalf of dad's family. I believe she is the only person who has completed work for his side. There is a lot left to do! Maybe we can work on that this summer.
" The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together." ~Erma Bombeck
